When you start a conversation about something that is under-discussed and you use art to convey it, I think that is incredibly powerful but is always going to create waves.
I spent the first seven years of my life in a caravan traveling around Europe and the United States because my parents were just obsessed with traveling.
I might not have been academically gifted - I was bad at maths, and science was a struggle - but I was good at English literature and became hooked on theatre.
It was nice to have a break from acting - there's a lot more to life than acting. And that's important - to be a good actor, you have to know that and to live that.
I've grown as an actor. I am more confident within my art form. I have also grown as a person. I am more compassionate, generous, and less judgmental.
