Mentally Ill Patient in Woods 4

Q- How did you get into acting?
A- I have always taken an interest in the art of acting. I remember when I was really young I would imitate people, and reenact scenes from movies and show’s like Hannah Montana with my friends. I loved acting and would take any chance I could to do so. But it wasn’t until around 7th grade that I actually started taking acting seriously. I remember I was in the auditorium at my middle school watching the school play when it hit me. “This is the only career I want to pursue” “I belong on that stage” “I was born to act” ,my head was fluttered with these thoughts and I was excited. More than excited! I don’t know how to describe what I felt because it was one of those feeling that are just out of this world! When I walked out of that auditorium a new kind of determination and motivation had been distilled inside of me. I got into acting class, got involved in school and church play’s. I also went on a few audition call’s in La & Chicago, And from that day forward I have lived, breathed, and pursued acting to the best of my ability.
Q- Who are your favorite actors or actresses and who influenced you on your way to becoming an actress?
