"No, it wasn't helpful. Dad was acting a while back and then he took a break. I went through the normal audition process. My first audition was with 180 girls. I didn't even have makeup on, it was a Sprite audition and I was shaking holding that slate because there were so many beautiful women sitting there. I went down that route, then the assistant direction route."

“Not yet, but I am sure this is something that will happen. What matters to me is – you see me, if I am convincing enough for you and you are okay with it, I am okay. At the end of the day, your talent and craft should be able to speak for yourself.”
