My mentor Jon Simmons introduced me to the Stanislavski system, which is so heavy on back-story. So you write and write and write these back stories about a character and then you throw it away. So then on set, if it doesn't come, then you didn't do your work.
My friends would certainly call me out if I didn't say that I like to create a bit of chaos and stir things up in my own life.
My husband and I didn't sign a pre-nuptial agreement. We signed a mutual suicide pact.
When I came to Los Angeles, it was the first time that I ever felt like I belong somewhere. Not because it was wacky, but because people here understood what I felt like to perform, and there were other kids my age who wanted to do it. I didn't get looked at as God, you freak.
Going to Liberia really changed a lot for me. I didn't realize what was happening on the same planet. My understanding that in the world everything is interconnected really grew - to go to one of the poorest countries from one of the richest countries in the world. It was two worlds apart.
I didn't want to be 50 or 60 and auditioning for a three-line role.
I didn't have to undergo reconstructive surgery.
If I didn't believe in myself as a dancer, I wouldn't choreograph.
We didn't really swallow much of the Jesus thing, but we got the vocab.
I was schooled at home, then didn't go to university because I married when I was 17. I didn't go into work until late in my life.
I didn't long to be a designer. I always liked fashion, but it was always a bit sleeping in me.
I didn't cost the Series. I cost a game in the regular season.
We thought everybody read comics. We didn't know we were weird. We didn't know people that collected comics were strange. It was as normal as listening to rock music on the radio.
I can tell you I didn't feel good when I could not articulate properly. Getting my GED was important and I want other women to feel that.
I care about me now. When I didn't care about me, I was, like, 'Why is this going wrong? Why is my life so bad?' But when you don't care about yourself, nobody else is going to care about you. So I learned to love myself, even if nobody else does.
