As a child, I felt like an outsider, and that’s not just specific to me. I think everyone has felt like that at one point or another in their life, but for me, I would read books and watch movies, and in that way, I would feel understood. I felt like characters were going through something I was going through, or that would make me feel, “Oh, there’s someone in the world that is understanding,” and they almost became like they were my friends. And when I realized that it was something I could do with my life — that I could become an actor and tell these stories, that I could continue to learn about myself in a deeper way, that I could entertain at the same time, and hopefully give that to another child or person and just continue to learn about the human experience — it was really my draw to become an actor and how I describe what movies are.
