I want to pursue as much of a serious acting career as I can, not just a flimsy overnight career. I take it very seriously and I really want to pursue it for the rest of my life.
It's actually fun to not know anyone and go out and find friends, or let them find you.
A lot of people make a mistake by trying to be too different and too out there. If I want to stand out, I don't want to stand out in the wrong way. I prefer classic style, maybe some things that don't match perfectly.
