Have you always known you wanted to be an actor or did you find yourself loving it later in life?
I think I’ve always known — certainly at least since the day I started doing musical theater shows, much to my parents’ horror. But I also wanted to be a teacher, an astronaut, an FBI agent, a forensic scientist, the person who writes all the informative placards at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, and who even knows what else.
I think at some point I realized I’d do better PLAYING all those things than I would actually …doing them. Except maybe the placard writer. That’s still my #1 aspiration and I would leave in a heartbeat if I ever found out that that’s a real, actual job and they needed me to do it.
