Best Lesson Learned at BSA: Donald Hicken told us on our first day that if we could live without being an actor, we should do it. I think it is true of being an artist of any kind. It is not an easy life I have chosen but so far I have been incapable of living fully and happily without it. When I am acting, I feel I am fulfilling my purpose. When I no longer feel that way, I will thank the craft for what it has given me and walk away.
Most Awkward BSA Moment: I fell down the staircase in the lobby once. Highly embarrassing.
Funniest BSA Memory: I fell down the staircase in the lobby once. Also, highly entertaining.
