1. What prompted you to become an actor?
Runs in my family — both parents and 5 of us 7 siblings are actors.
2. How are you preparing for the challenge of playing multiple characters in multiple plays during our staged readings?
Just as I prepare for any script — searching for clues to my character from within the script.
3. What feelings/thoughts have the scripts for the festival left with you?
#MeToo has had a profound effect nationwide and the scripts express some of the stories of people who have been speaking up.
4. What’s your favorite warm-up exercise to prepare for a show?
I always concentrate on what is the story I am going to tell because that is my job as an actor — to tell the story.
