"The actors you see on the big screen like Keira Knightley? They're the lottery winners. They always have work lined up for them. 92-94% of all actors are either unemployed or working as something other than an actor. It's not easy an easy life. If you want to be an actor, you need to be prepared to stay in dressing rooms that smell like shit, to be able to spread yourself thin amongst casting agents, to be able to perform for audiences of three people and be okay with all of that. You have to be acting because theatre is your life and what you are.
It's the only way it isn't going to break you."
