On Stage

“From the time I was very small, I remember having the impulse to ‘express’ myself. At the age of three I attended dance classes because I wanted to express myself physically. As a teenager I went from dancing to singing, which seemed a natural and logical extension of that self-expression.  Later, as an adult, I carried that impulse for expression even further, into acting, and experienced a greater form of expression. I loved the intricate mystery of being another character, sorting out background and motivation and meaning, exploring my own feelings and thoughts in relation to another person.”

You Can Get There From Here
