|At what stage in your career did you realise that acting could be something you do professionally?
When I did my first play. I felt happy and I loved acting, and that's when I realized I wanted to be an actor.
1998 - IN LONDON WHEN I BOOKED A SHOW CALLED DREAM TEAM
Ever since I acted in 3rd grade in my New York elementary school and won a story tell-a-thon award.. I only wanted to act forever!
When I was a toddler I was always dancing and singing to others so I had the chance to do my first play I wanted the lead didnt second guess it.
While I was still in school I got cast in a big budget film, so I decided to go for it and study drama when I left.
That was probably when I took on the role of Willie Loman (!) in Death of a Salesman. It was a school production and I was 16, and it went down quite a storm. From then on, I knew I wanted to become a professional actor, so I did a few summer courses and workshops (including one at the Webber Douglas Academy in London) which confirmed my choice.
When I first started. Ive never been one to think about how "realistic" something could be... I knew I loved acting so much it was all i would ever want to do.. and if i wanted something THAT much I knew id carry it through till the end..
I realized I could make a living off of theatre when I was a sophomore in highschool.
After doing the musical "Oliver!" in 5th grade, around the age of 10, I realized that my dream was to become an actor when i grew up.
