"Don’t ever let anybody tell you you can’t. My mum and dad never wanted me to be an actress. They didn’t want me to be in acting at all. In fact, I remember telling them I wanted to go to college for theatre and my mum cried and said, “There’s no way,” […] I had to overcome many things, many people telling me no. If you want it, and you believe in it, you have to do it."
