What are you working on right now?
I’m excited about my new project, a Bollywood film.
When did you decide to become an actor?
My first experience of theater was appearing in a school play. I enjoyed skipping class to go to rehearsals! And the more I rehearsed the more I felt attracted to this world of fantasy and role-play, so much so that I actually started dressing up as different characters at home. I gave performances for my family and made them laugh.
Before graduating from high school, I took a summer program at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and really fell in love with acting.
What was it about acting that you found appealing?
At first it was fame and money, but when I was introduced to the real art of acting I fell in love with it, and fame and money weren’t a factor anymore. Having the opportunity to move people in a profound way and maybe change someone’s life for the better is a feeling that nothing else in the world can give you.
Please name your biggest influences.
Al Pacino, Will Smith, Guy Ritchie, Leonardo DiCaprio. Those are some of my all-time favorites.

What is your main strength as an actor?
I’m able to stay present with myself and my scene partners, and I like to stay as real as possible with my emotions and reactions. Listening is a big one for me as well. I’ve worked on all of these abilities for years now and I’ve been able to add them to my acting toolbox.
How difficult is it to establish yourself in the film industry?
Hard work and dedication are definitely needed in this industry, but I believe that if you stay focused and patient, they will pay off.
What's your dream, your ultimate goal? Do you feel like you're on the path to this goal, or do you feel as if you already achieved that dream?
My dream is to become an Academy Award winner. I believe I’m definitely on the right path, but I also believe some of my dreams have come true already. Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be flying to India to film a Bollywood movie.
What is your message to all your fans?
Turn your dreams into goals and they’ll become possible. Stay true to your values and your vision. Do no harm, take no shit.
