Initially, I wanted to be an ice skater, but then when I was 13 I saw Bye Bye Birdie, and that was it - I wanted to be on Broadway.
I wasn't originally taking drama, but the drama teacher asked me to audition for Bye, Bye Birdie. I did and got the lead role. Initially I was kind of scared, but once I did it I got bitten by the bug and loved it.
We didn't have movies in this little mining town.
When I was 12 my mom took me to New York and I saw Bye Bye Birdie, with people singing and dancing, and that was it.
