I've always thought that less was a lot more.
I'm drawn to roles because they excite me intellectually and emotionally.
I've been dieting my whole life because I have a tremendous appetite.
The roles for women in theatre are much better than they are in film.
I always assumed that like my mother before me, one day I would have children.
What would be really difficult is to be sitting on a beach. There's vacations, and there's vegetations. I don't do well vegetating.
Theatre is immediate, it's alive, you're there with the audience, it can't be done again and again and again and again, it's organic.
I wanted to understand pain and the human condition, which is full of pain and regret and sadness - and some happiness, if you're lucky.
I've learned that I can't have a packed work schedule and a packed social schedule and a packed personal life; I need to just have time to myself to sit and breathe and unwind.
Being a biological mother just isn't part of my experience this time around. However, I am a mother who continues to give birth to ideas and ways of experiencing life that challenge the norm.
It was difficult when I was very young because I was so separated from my family. When I was at school or acting in a play, I felt very much part of something, and then it would always change, and I would be by myself.
