“I was fortunate to get into acting because of a professor of mine in college. I was planning to be a lawyer. And I used to party a little bit too much in college and so I had to take an acting class thinking how hard can it be. Professor saw something in me and he was like, “hey you are really good at this, did you ever think about auditioning for plays?” I said no. Then he kinda blackmailed me, actually, said I talk a lot in his class, (which I did) so he threatened me saying “you could easily get a B or a D.” I was like “really?” So, he blackmailed me into auditioning, so I auditioned and I ended up doing a play, and I knew that was going to be my life at that point on.”
