Soft spoken voice
My first audition was the worst I have ever done, ever.
I just said yes to opportunities that came my way.
My dad is a pilot so I think I was born with the travel bug.
I like to keep mobile. It keeps my mind awake.
Mom worked with autistic children.
I'm really drawn to European films.
My best friend was Aboriginal.
I go by intuition. Work-wise, that means asking myself if a role will push me outside my comfort zone, challenge me to learn something new.
There's no point in dwelling on rejection.
People instantly assume you can't have a platonic friendship with someone of the opposite sex. I think this may be specific to L.A. - or America.
I was a barefoot earth child for a couple of years.
I don't really get nervous for auditions, because I just see them as mini acting classes. There's no need to have an attachment to the outcome because it's out of your hands after that.
I don't think it's unusual to spend time with your castmate.
