Some days I think I look kind of cute, but other days I try to avoid the mirror.
America is grappling with cultural diversity, and I just want to put a show on that represents the world in which I live.
A friend of mine had his own theater company, and he jumped me in like I was in a gang. And once I came in, it was just that simple. For the first time in my life, I felt, 'This is a career, this is a life that I think I can grow old doing.' It was love at first sight. I loved being on stage and reading these plays. It was great.
I couldn't wait to be, you know, a Black Panther. Of course they wouldn't let me join.
Be talented enough to make it and stupid enough to keep trying.
