How did you get involved in theatre? When did you know that you wanted to be an actor?
My father was involved in film when I was very small. He never really guided me that way, but being around storytelling just kind of rubbed off on me. I never set out to be an actor exactly, but I always wanted to be involved in the collaborative telling of stories, and acting is where I found my niche.
