I went to School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, and we had a bunch of singing classes. My first job in New York was an Off-Broadway musical.
I’ve been acting since second grade, and I just remember when I first moved to New York and I was living in Washington Heights with three other actors in this tiny apartment and busting my butt to get to the subway, walking to, like, five auditions in a day.
I started doing regional theater. My first job was ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ at Dallas Theater Center.
I think everybody wants to be a rock star.
I went to college at North Carolina School of the Arts and took a lot of singing classes, and it really is so connected to emotions.
Ultimately, I don’t think you can teach a tone-deaf person how to sing. Some talents you’re just born with, unfortunately.
I’ve been acting since second grade, telling stories, making my parents laugh here and there, so I’m hoping my ‘thing’ is acting. But I also make a really good bread pudding.
Well, I’m from the South originally. I grew up in South Carolina definitely learning about manners and being proper and having to go to cotillions.
I think that the audience wants to see women being put into real situations where they can relate to them, rather than seeing some glamorous woman in a ‘Bond’ film.
I’m a huge fan of Jessica Lange and ‘American Horror Story.’ I would love to work with her. She’s been one of my favorite actresses for a while.
In the South, you don’t say exactly what’s going on or what’s on your mind.
