To be bold and interesting in your choices, you have to occasionally put yourself in harms way as an artist. An acting coach once told me, "The meek will inherit the Earth- six feet of it, straight down". That quote has been with me a long time. It helps me to make the leap every time.
"It seems to me that a lot of actors have a tag line these days. I still don't know what my tag line is- maybe that is why this job was so fun".
