I asked an old preacher once how he got his call to the ministry. He said, 'Preaching came to me and I ran. But it caught me, so I preach.' I think acting is the same way. I always tell kids when I visit schools that I believe God gives us all a vocation, the thing we are put here on earth to do. The trick is to make your vocation your occupation, if you can.
