I spent a lot of time heaving lunch with other actor friends bitching about not having an audition. At a certain point, I decided to go to film school.
I decided I wanted to do something more meaningful with my life than going to auditions.
I felt full of an emotion that I didn’t have any release for...I wasn’t getting the parts that could offer that release. At the same time, I had a story in my head and I began to equate a sense of emptiness with needing to get the story written.
