“Although things look fancy on the outside when I’m abroad working with respectable directors and actors, it wasn’t easy being in their culture with imperfect language skills,” she said. “However, I think that I walked down a good path, because I never participated in anything that someone pushed me to do. Rather, it’s always because I’ve wanted to do it. Nevertheless, it is still lacking.  Acting gets harder, the more I do it.”

She added, “As I age and take on older roles, I know that more expectations come with it. I used to think that acting would get easier when I get to my thirties, but I think I was more comfortable then. It gets harder and harder, and I still have a long way to go.”
