“You have to pay attention to the moments when you’ve felt on top on the world. I remember the first time I was on stage, I was doing West Side Story, I was 17 and this woman was crying because she liked what I was doing so much.
I know I’m 28 now, and
I know the stakes are higher, but looking back on an experience like that reminds me that I do have a place somewhere. Sometimes it’s okay to give yourself a pat on the back and say, That was cool. That made me feel good.”
Happy 34th birthday, Sebastian Stan! – August 13th, 1982
