"I’m an actor."
"How has being an actor differed from your initial expectations?"
"Well, I think everyone decides to become an actor from a place of love. But when it becomes your job, there’s an adjustment, because suddenly you are in competition with other people for your livelihood. And some people can’t handle it. I’ve been lucky enough to find work my entire life. But I’ve seen a lot of talented people who weren’t so lucky."
"So what separates you from the talented people who weren’t able to find work?"
"I’ve always been very driven. I’ve seen many talented people fail because they aren’t driven. In school, they were able to win roles because of their talent. But you reach a point where talent isn’t enough to compete. Because as you progress, you’re eventually going to run up against people who are both talented and driven."
