How did you start acting?
It's something I thought about for a really long time. I had just gotten an agent and read for Silent Fall, and I decided that it was something I really wanted to do. Then I got the part and I couldn't believe it.
Do you have a dream role or someone you're dying to work with?
There are a lot of people I'd love to work with: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gary Oldman, Uma Thurman... just people I enjoy watching. There are so many people I admire.
How do you prepare for a role?
It depends on the part. (My character in) Heavy is kind of like me, so for that one, I just rehearsed and figured out how to play her. In Silent Fall, I did a lot of research on autistic kids and being sexually abused. I went much deeper into that character.
What's been the most challenging scene you've had so far?
In Silent Fall I had some really challenging scenes. I didn't know I was totally capable of doing what I did until I actually finished doing it. Every day is a callenge because you do it (the movie) in different sections. You're always using your mind.
