“I certainly never expected to be in front of the camera. Even when I was studying acting, I wouldn’t even go into the film department of my school. I was only about the stage. I didn’t even consider film or TV. I was a total snob,” she said.

“Then when I moved to New York and was trying to get a job on stage, and was broke and was offered a TV movie. I took it because I didn’t have any option,” she added.

The actress also revealed that her family was initially shocked by her decision to become an actress.
