I’ve been dancing since I was 6 years old. That kind of relentless dedication and intensity is where I’m comfortable.
I’m ridiculously fortunate to get a chance to experience the sitcom world. The schedule is extremely easy, and you get fed as an artist because you’re not only working on a project, but you get to work with cameras, and you get the audience there.
Most of my training at graduate school was geared towards drama, so I feel good about it, and I can do it, but it requires a lot more work from me. I feel like with drama… well, with all acting, really, you need to honor the truth of the situation.
For some reason, comedy just comes easily to me, and I feel like I can do it. I don’t have any doubt. When I work on drama, there’s always a sense of ‘Did I find this person’s truth at the bottom of this?’ And it’s hard to tell sometimes.
