Being an actor has caused me a lot of pain over the years. Auditions give me massive anxiety, and not getting a role I was made for can break my heart. Yet through it all, I wouldn't give it up for anything. I wouldn't have had a place of refuge when home was a place of turmoil, or direction and purpose when I felt life was meaningless. In fact, I may not even be alive today without the art I love so much.
