When I run in the morning, my body spends the first 20 minutes trying to figure out what's happening to it.
When I run barefoot, I put my shoes on my hands. Running around with shoe-hands looks a little weird.
Stereotypes happen. I try not to embrace them or avoid them.
My mom put me in dance classes when I was 5 years old.
My job is to focus on bringing characters to life in an honest and personal way.

I think in many ways, I'm sort of a blank canvas, because in many ways, I'm just observing the world and the people around me and their characters and letting them kind of explode off me and to find out why they're doing what they're doing. But then every once in awhile, I get to take on a whole new character.
Thankfully, I was able to go to Marquette University and get my education, a Catholic education, so I could please my family, because I think they wanted me to be a priest.
