  • I grew up in the theater with my mom and that's how I knew I wanted to be an actor in the first place.

    Mom   Actors   Firsts  
  • The directors were often really nice and I was well behaved, so I would just sit there in rehearsal. That allowed me to see the process - not just the result, the red carpet, all of the wonderful, fun things that happen afterwards - the nuts and bolts, the nitty-gritty, "Let's try to build this character from the page," tech rehearsals.

    Fun   Nice   Character

    Art   Years   Piano

  • In L.A., being an actor is like a pastime, everybody there is like, "I was on this reality show; I'm an actor." It becomes a word that is loosely thrown around.

  • My favorite films are when all of the technicalities are so seamless and so well done that I'm not thinking about them - you're able to go full-on into the story versus talking about edgy this moment was.

  • Personally, especially as a young black woman, I didn't think that Los Angeles was a place for me to start. There's a certain type that they go for or don't.

  • I realized that once I graduated from college, there might be a period of time where people might typecast me or be more limiting, and I might not be able to play a crazy character. For me, it was important to do that at least in school.

  • William Shakespeare was a brilliant writer and he only wrote the truth. So, if I dont believe it, I have to work really hard to see what that truth is so that I do; thats the only way I can make it believable for the audience.

    Believe   Way   Brilliant

    Mom   Jobs   Growing Up

    Art   Artist   Views  
  • The big challenge is finding something new without changing completely what you've already done - going deeper into what you've already done and discovering new things while carrying out the same intention.

  • My thing is that if you don't really connect to something or see that it's going to be something you're going to be proud of, I wouldn't do it.

    Proud   Be Proud   Ifs  
  • I've realized that a lot of people go to see film or theater with a different expectation. I have a friend who's an actor and I can't stand watching movies with him because he never quite allows himself to just watch the story. He'll comment on the lighting, he'll comment on the [camera] angle. I'm not saying there's a wrong way to watch it - maybe that's helpful to him - but to me, you're getting way too caught up in the technical aspects.

  • The reason why I like theater is because it's a long journey, and no matter what role you play, we are all in it together.

    Journey   Play   Long  
  • I prefer theater and film. I did a little television, and obviously I'm not knocking it. It can be great, and it does pay the bills. But it's a little bit more disjointed.

  • Shakespeare teaches you how to act. You come out of this process as a better actor. It's just the nature of the words he writes.

  • Im a songwriter and Id love to make that a part of my career.

  • I started playing piano when I was around four; thats my first passion.

    Passion   Piano   Four  
  • [In New York,] when you say you're an actor, there's a certain level of respect that goes with that.

  • I admire fashion and I respect it greatly, but I don't necessarily follow trends. I never really have. I just wear what I like to wear. I really like colors, and there are some things I wear and don't care what anybody says about it being in style or not. I wear it anyway.

    Fashion   Color   Style  
  • There are a lot of celebrities that I think can get a little bit distracted by the way that our society views celebrity. All of a sudden, the film becomes about, "Come see this celebrity!" I'm not interested in that. I want to see a story.

  • I wanted to become an actor and I knew that if I was really going to do it, I needed the training. I was not one of those people that was like, "I got it." I was like, "No, I don't have it yet. I need work. I need help fixing myself."

    People   Training   Needs  
  • Theater is a lot more interactive, more of a cohesive unit. With television, it can be a different director every episode.

  • The way I work emotionally is: I don't ever try to cry. I try not to, which is what for me produces organic emotion.

    Trying   Way   Emotion
