"My first commercial was Coca Cola. I had to be sweaty and wipe the bottle across my forehead. Before that, I was a host for a series called Going Great. I used to go around and meet the kids who raised bees, or this girl was trying to learn the javelin. The story I tell is being fifteen and going up to my mother and saying "Is it okay if I become an actor?" And she said "of course." Shortly after that I was going to classes at night; the first class was based on Uta Hagen’s Respect for Acting."
