Advice for young and aspiring actors

For young and aspiring actors and models, she said, “I would tell them to have a lot of patience and to go after your dreams and to fight for your dreams. Be really disciplined. Remember while there will be a lot of rejections in this industry, there will be a person who will tell you ‘yes’.”

Career-defining moment: Moving to Mexico

Her career-defining moment involved moving to Mexico. “When I moved to Mexico, everything started to change in my career,” she said.

Superpower of choice
