WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN ACTOR?
I decided to become an actor after watching Once Upon a Time in Mexico. They looked like they were having so much fun. It was the first time that it dawned on me that they were getting paid to make art. Most adults I knew at the time hated their jobs. I thought what a gift to be able to love what you do. You can make a living and enjoy it? I can wake up in the morning and collaborate with others to tell a story and experience the world in the process? Sold! I never looked back from there.
