I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play. I worry about them-if someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they wont do it right; they’ll make the character a victim or they’ll make her a villain or they’ll just get it wrong somehow…When I get like that, anythings possible.
"I never feel like, ‘I’ve got this.’ I’m always very nervous and aware of how quickly people can hate you and that scares me. I never feel like I’m on top of it or I know what I’m doing…so, no. I never get a big head, I just get more and more anxious."
"I try to look at everything in a very realistic, undramatic way. I think its easy to dramatize things, especially in this industry where things are made to seem glamorous when in fact, they’re really not. I haven’t taken my eyes off the ball and I haven’t taken my eyes off my job. In the grand scheme of things, family comes first, but yeah, there are a lot of distractions in this industry although none of them are very appealing for me. I don’t like staying out late - so parties aren’t that tempting to me - I think I actually just like my job, so I like to do whatever keeps me working. That keeps me grounded."
