On preferring acting, directing or producing;
“Acting, producing. I love performing. Whether it’s for the theatre, whether it’s for film, whether it’s being a voice performer, I just love it, and producing. I love producing content as well.
On her favourite place to be – stage or film;
I get asked that question all the time, and I really can’t say, because it really depends on the material. If the material is a fantastic stage production, then for that time I totally love stage.
If it’s a fantastic material for the camera, then I totally am in love with the camera. For me, the techniques for both are so different. That’s the challenge. You’re coming from a theatre production and then the next job you get is for film, and then you just have to now rewire your brain to key into the techniques for the camera.
