@indigovalleyfilm: What is your biggest concern with the future? I have been very lucky. I am pretty much booked up until 2018. Of course, we all want to have a sustainable career so I hope that I am able to at some point make a living but also pursue my own projects that may not be as financially sustainable. I am 100% not in this for the money of course, but I do hope to have a family one day and be able to support myself. I also want to find the right representation for me. Someone that will shape my career and get me into doors that I can’t necessarily get myself into. I believe it will happen. I worry that my acting career won’t take off. But, I have been able to sustain an acting career as much as possible while studying directing and screenwriting, I often appear in my own films and I am performing in a few theatre projects in the coming months, which I couldn’t be more excited about. I also have a small role in Miles (with Molly Shannon and Paul Reiser) that is released June 9. I worry that my larger film projects won’t get financed, but I am hopeful.
My biggest concern and not just for me, but for the whole industry is the way women are treated. I have been told every possible gender biased criticism over the past few years. For example- being told that I don’t have the personality to direct. What does that even mean? I doubt that would ever be told to a man. This attitude has to change. I can’t single handedly change it of course, but I believe that women can charge to the forefront and continue to show what we are capable of and strive for equal opportunities.
