My mother is very strong. Aside from wanting her beauty and her heart, I really wanted her strength. And I've always thought I don't have it.
I will always want to do whatever it is that my heart is in, and whether I get paid for it or not means nothing. It doesn't matter. I'll do it if it means something to me and I want to be a part of it.

Unfortunately, very often in roles you're only wanted to stand there and be sweet. That's why I'm drawn back to roles in theater.
