Sometimes I sneak out into the streets alone, like Princess Jasmine in 'Aladdin.'
I think the reason I got into it is because you get to be someone else. There are, like, two percent of people in the actors' union who actually make money off of it, so I feel very blessed to be here.
In Chicago, I'd audition 3-4 times a week, but when I got out to L.A., there were, like, 4-5 a day, and my skin got really thick.
I have a lot of traditional values I follow personally, which was hard to deal with when I first moved to L.A.
I want to shoot some indies, some independent features that give me some space to play a little bit.
I'd love to shoot some of these bigger movies as they come, and I'll go back to theater at some point again.
I'm a fan of, like, the Coen Brothers, with the darker humor in it.
There are so many talented actors in Chicago, I have to go see shows when I'm there. A lot of these actors, who I've seen when I'm in Chicago in theaters, are technically amazing and never have an opportunity to showcase it on a bigger medium.
I'm a White Sox fan, and the Blackhawks.
I was really into theater, really into music a lot.
It's better to take sobriety with you when you work.
