Why have you decided on a career in acting?
Early on in my life I was a model and traveled quite a bit. I was discovered as a model in a local shopping mall in Vancouver, Canada. My parents then got a transfer to Texas. I was living in Germany at the time planning to stay in Europe as a ‘Bohemian Model Chick’. My parents convinced me to leave Europe for Texas. I was under 21at the time and I had the perfect opportunity to receive a Green Card, or a permanent residency in the US. In Texas I discovered a good modeling market while I was putting myself through college. Then a call came in for a movie. I went on an audition and got the role. I then got involved in local film festivals in Texas. Clearly acting was something I enjoyed a lot which at the end triggered me to move to Los Angeles.
How do you like living in LA?
I feel more at home in LA. I used to live in Tokyo and in Germany and it was much bigger shock coming to Texas than any of these International cities. Although at the end I enjoyed living in Texas, I still consider LA as my home. I have 2 kids who were both born in LA. Most of my friends are stay home moms, which allows me to have a life outside the acting world.
