A lot of times people ask me if I have a timeline for acting… Do I have a certain number of years I plan on staying in LA? The answer is no. And this is the face I make when I say it :)
I try not to plan too far ahead. I don’t set ultimatums. All I know is that I love acting, and I know that I am supposed to be here in LA right now. With each passing day I am taking one more step toward becoming a successful actress. I am constantly making progress – auditioning, going to classes, meeting casting directors, etc.
