1096. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Stage Actor?
“From the time I was a young girl, I never wanted to do anything else. That doesn’t mean I didn’t meet any skepticism in my family about it. I didn’t necessarily say it out loud at first, but I was determined to do it. By the time I moved to New York in 1988, pursuing a career in acting was what I was planning on doing. Okay, it seemed like a mountain to climb and sometimes it still feels like a mountain to climb, but there weren’t other things I wanted to do. I think most actors do other things to help support themselves when they’re not acting. And I think different actors have different paths with that kind of thing. I personally wanted to do something that was a little more fulfilling and so I have always taught as well, which I truly love.”
