Searching for the Balance

What do you love about your work?

Since I started in the beginning I have a picture of where I should be or what I should be doing in ten years. So it's like chasing me every time. Where I am now, what’s next, am I close or not to that picture I’ve drawn since years... So, that's like something that has lived with me all the time, in my mind. This is work to me.

What does acting give you?

Look. I was very deep, shy person. But acting made me more outgoing person.

Where do your ideas come from?

My ideas come from the desire to overcome my fears.

What does being creative mean to you?

Being creative means understanding my balance, knowing where I want to go and where I want to be.

Why do you like travelling?

I feel free when I travel. I feel enjoying every little thing, every detail, everything I do, everything new, and everything I wear. Travelling gives me a better understanding of the world.

When you are acting and you are in character - what is going through your mind? How does that allow you to explore different sides?

When I act I feel like I don't need to worry about anything else. I have no worries. And that gives me confidence. 

Was your dream to grow up and become an actor? What has helped you pursue your dreams?

When I was a child, I have never thought I was going to become an actor. I don't know why...it suddenly came to my mind...when I was 16 years old. I found myself, I should act now. So I started to get trained and took an Acting training course.

Maybe because I was shy to express that I want to act, so I kept it inside me for a long time and then suddenly I got it out. So I am an actor now.  I see myself. I have a big dream.  I don't express my dreams to others, I don't care about this. But inside me, I know how big my dreams are. And I know that I will reach what I want to reach.
