"Music was always a big factor. I think there’s rhythm and music in everything, including sports, stunts, and how we move. It’s a really big part of my life. There’s a lot of emotion. I make a playlist for every character that I get to play."

[Advice to someone who is striving to break through in their chosen field and hasn’t quite done it just yet?] Certainly, you have to be prepared, be tenacious, and have a willingness to sacrifice and persevere. I sacrificed so much, even my own self respect at times. And if you have a support system in place with great friends, that’s really important too. You absolutely need to get some work.

"I was studying computer languages — Pascal, BASIC, and DOS were the popular ones at that time. But I realized my personality didn’t fit behind a computer. I took an elective, and it kind of really changed my life. The Wizard of Oz was my first play, and playing the Scarecrow to all these kids was such an invigorating exchange of emotions. I thought, Wow, this is addicting. This is beautiful. Then I started doing really heavy parts after that, like Conrad Jarrett in Ordinary People, Philip in Orphans … and from there I started digging into psychology and human behavior, and that became really important, personally, as how I sort of viewed my place in the planet. Acting was a beautiful outlet.”
