Why did I say yes? She said come and read for me tomorrow and I did, and I was cast in the second lead in a, in a film and it was actually quite wonderful.

I looked 16 I thought I was you know akin to an English major or a performance artist and I just uh, I just kept working, but by the time I hit 30 I thought oh I better go back to my original dream before I age out and see if
