Personal Quote:

I'm not one of those actors who feels like they need to get in character, to do any sort of method acting situations. For me it's all about learning my lines, showing up on time, and professionally listening to what others are saying, and then authentically and truthfully reacting off of their expressions. So, it's easy to drop roles, because I don't feel like I acquire them to begin with. See more »
