I'm an ambitious person. I never consider myself in competition with anyone, and I'm not saying that from an arrogant standpoint, it's just that my journey started so, so long ago, and I'm still on it and I won't stand still.
Whether it's music or acting, that creativity all comes from the same source.
I love to play different roles. That's just the kind of actor I am.
