I always wanted to perform in some capacity since I was a kid--I was a ballerina, then a singer before acting. It segued into doing film and television work.
I've realized you need to be ready for anything in this business and whatever comes your way you should be happy and grateful for it.
I don't really just want to be the blockbuster star, and I don't necessarily want to sign onto seven films in a role that I'm not really passionate about.
My first paying job was guest starring in 'Touched By An Angel' when I was 12. It was very exciting. I couldn't believe you got free food all day and people were so nice to you.
I love anybody who's willing to stick to their own vision, their own voice, who's not easily swayed by money or by financers who are going to tell them what they should do.
I've always been a huge fan of 'The Shining,' and 'Rosemary's Baby' is one of my favorite films of all time.
When you are playing someone who is dealing with issues on a really personal level, if you don't bring your own issues into the equation, it's not going to feel really personal to the people watching it.
