Personal Quote:  “I love working with children, because of their huge sense of play. Children instinctively bring fun into everything they do. Working with children often reminds me to find my own fun. In playing games and using our imaginations, even during homework time, children reveal to me the magic of storytelling. They help me rediscover what drew me to acting in the first place.”
