I could never play the ingenue, the girl next door or the very successful young doctor. That would be a bore.
I’m a typical middle child. I’m the mediator. The one that makes everything OK, puts their own needs aside to make sure everybody’s happy. It’s hard to change your nature, even with years and years of therapy.
