1 I just love to act. I like to get away, totally play a different character, someone you can get really involved in knowing. I've gotten really involved in some characters and written down little summaries of where they live and what their families are like. You can really get into it -- especially in the movies, where you really have the time to get into your character and play her well.
2 It is funny you know, you spend 12 years of your life learning about things and about life, but they never really tell you how hard life really is.
