I stuck out like a sore thumb when I came on, just by the fact that I looked so different. I think that adjustment for the audience was a hurdle for me.
I’ve grown as a person. The dynamics on this set are very demanding because we work a lot of hours, it’s very sad material, so there’s always someone upset because it’s really heavy stuff.

You’ve got to clock the hours and pay your dues. Then eventually, people will come to you. You have to be patient and appreciative.
I was very excited about the idea that I could be an idealist, that I could be my age, the eager beaver who had hope in the justice system and the one who gets disappointed just like the audience.
