There are no second takes when you’ve got an audience.
Exactly, absolutely. And that feeling never goes away! The last thing I’m thinking every night before I go on stage is about how wrong it could all go! (Laughs) Every time I do a play, I’m like, “Ugh, why do I do this? This is so scary!” And then you start doing it and you’re like, “Oh, this is why,” because when it goes well, it’s really, really fun. 🔊And there’s something really exhilarating about overpowering those fears and getting through the entire performance and being like, “Okay, we did it. Everyone’s alive.”

What do you mean?
Okay, so it probably had a lot to do with my quitting drinking and then quitting drinking for the second time, which is the time it actually stuck. 🔊Alcohol is a very quick and easy way to go about not addressing your feelings or your self or what worries you. And so, removing that made me go, “Oh, I have to actually ask and answer some questions I have about myself! What am I actually like? And what do I want to be like?” And I think I’ve got closer to finding some of that stuff in more recent years, which has been nice! I have definitely felt that I’m letting people down at times… But recently, I feel like released of a lot of the pressure of having to try to be something that I think I’m not, and that’s what I felt a lot when I was in my late teens, early twenties.
