What inspired you to pursue acting?
What inspired me to pursue acting was, growing up as an only child until I was fifteen and endlessly entertaining myself by copying the characters I watched on the Carol Burnette show.
What is your dream role?
My dream role is to play an Action Hero or an action role like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill.
