I was a really shy kid. I think I actually liked attention just as much as the next kid, but under very specific circumstances like don’t laugh at me unless I’m trying to be funny. One time my siblings and I put on the play “Snow White” with our friends. I always thought Dopey was the best dwarf because he was the funny one, and since I was the shy, quiet kid, I got to be Dopey. I didn’t have lines, I just got to be all cute and silly–it was perfect.
And that was the beginning of my acting career.
