I was in theater school, and I was writing stories and doing poetry. That movie was a great experience for me. One day I would tell my story. Why bother with the petition? It was an extremely dark time for me.
How did you get from there to Hollywood?
They just put a map in my hand and sent me to castings. It was an extremely dark time for me. Uh oh, what kind of dangerous situations? I went to Paris; I was only 16 years old. I always had a dream, but growing up I kept that dream to myself. If not, then it will be fun to watch the movie! There were a lot of dangerous situations.
