The goal I set for myself is to be successful. There are many ways to determine success. For myself, it’s not about how much money is made (it really is). For me, it’s about how I go about my work. Did I give the character justice, was I true to the character and what did I learn from the project? There is nothing more valuable than knowledge. Last but not least, did I keep my integrity? Is my soul still intact?
As an actor I hope to bring joy and laughter to people. Provoke new thoughts and ideas. Supply an escape, if only for a moment. We should remember that we all need to laugh. Especially at the things that aren’t funny. After all, laughter is the best medicine.
