So from as far as I can remember I loved to play different characters.
Do you have any rituals before filming a show?
Well I haven’t quite landed anything yet but through working with one of my acting coaches Ms. Wendy as a loosening up tool I do some tongue twisters like Big Black Cat saying that a few times , it loosens me up.
