I don’t prefer much of film over stage… The only thing I prefer is the paycheck.
Singing really oxygenates your blood. You stretch your lungs and take in much more air into them than before. It’s really good for your health.
I feel like theatre gives me the grounding, and keeps me alive, basically. Film gives me the thrill, and it’s like a one night stand. But I do enjoy being around people who love it so much.
