If I had known how much I hate auditioning, I doubt I would have become an actress.
I try to really focus on the actors I'm working with and kind of read and respond to their behavior.
As an actor, if you decide that someone is bad... you can't play bad, because even the worst person doesn't think what they're doing is bad.
