"One thing that will stay with me forever is, I really love work. I love hard work. I’m somewhat OK with the isolation. At times I realize, that’s so not normal. It’s weird, but it gives me the opportunity to do what I love," she says. "I do wish it was a bit more normal. Plans are just difficult. You have to be ready to change them any moment.

I’m really not restricted by being too pragmatic. You know, I don’t need – a lot of actors definitely, especially ones in sort of supreme positions to make choices, as I am lucky enough to do, are really concerned about every element being spot-on perfect, you know, to fit into an equation for success.
And it’s also just about the experience. It takes a lot. You know, it may sound silly, but you do have to give sort of so much of yourself and it is taxing to tell a story that is, you know, important to you.
So when you don’t come out of the other side feeling like taken care of and like there was an honor to it, like we were supporting characters in a story that were so much greater than us, it feels awful. It’s a horrible experience and then usually you don’t wind up with a very good film either. But as an actor, for me, it’s also very much about risk and being able to jump into something with a faith. I don’t know.
