“These tough times caused by COVID have made everyone very depressed and a lot of people all over the world are having a hard time. And as an actor, I wanted to give everybody a good laugh.”

“I think this occupation of an actor is very intriguing in that you get to do or to say things that you would never do in real life.”

“[As an actor] I have to make that character look believable and convincing for the audience, so I have to focus on the acting and there’s this catharsis that always comes with those performances.”

“I’ve been offered more leading positions and more commercial works, but I wasn’t really interested then. I decided I am not good enough to be the center of something yet. So I chose smaller roles. It’s true you need to grab the chance when you have it, but I don’t like that. I choose to row my boat when the timing is right.”

“Being able to listen to others more means I have become that much older, but it also means I’ve met people I can trust, people that have a good influence on my life. You have to be a good person yourself to meet good people.”
