Her advice on starting an acting career
– I will tell every person, especially young girls, who wish to take up acting as a career to get an education first.
– Be sure you have the passion and talent for acting. When passion meets hard work, success is sure.
– Don’t expect to be movie-stars overnight. Patience and consistency are key elements in this industry.
– If you can afford it, go to film schools, attend film festivals and workshops as much as you can. Read books, there are a lot of good acting books out there. Get them and read.
-A great deal of learning also happens on the field. By field I mean when you are acting. Accept criticisms, read and learn on how to rise above mistakes.
