“There are definitely obstacles to being an actor as a kid. For me, that was bad acting habits. As a kid, you do something and then an adult says, ‘That’s good,’ and then you do it again. You’re rewarded and then that’s the behavior you reinforce. I thought as a kid that acting was crying, and for some reason I could cry on command. So that became a bit of a crutch for me. As an adult, I’ve started to expand my thoughts on what I’m able to do and the kinds of parts I can play—the still or unemotional kind of work I can do.”
