I just always loved to sing, but I was always too chicken. I got a wonderful singing teacher in Los Angeles, and I would sneak into his studio and work on technique and sing songs and skulk out, and that was as far as I got. That was years ago, so I finally said to my agent, 'I think I need to try the singing thing.' And they're like, 'What? You can sing? You've been working how many years and you never told anybody this?' So I auditioned and somehow ended up here. I don't know how it happened.
I love film sets, but I don't necessarily love being the center of attention. As a director, I get to have a much broader creative expression than as an actress. I'm not just blond and 5 ft. 4 in. - on why she stepped behind the camera
I learn a lot from acting, but it's not my natural way. I can't help but write; I do it all the time. It's a condition of being for me. I think I am a writer, but professionally I feel drawn to and suited for directing. As far as producing, I like to facilitate other people's good work. With acting I like to be in ensemble pieces.
