One of the most life-affirming moments I have had is the day that I was made a Lifetime Member of The Actors Studio headed by Ellen Burstyn, Al Pacino and Alec Baldwin. Just two weeks before, Mr Pacino and Ms Burstyn praised my scene work from Richard III and I was pretty speechless. It was definitely an out-of-body moment, but also a confirmation that I had made the right decision in starting a new life and that my dreams could come true. I try to tap into that feeling on my down days.
