I am 30 years old now. I enjoy independent films. I do believe that there is a big advantage to start an acting career as young as possible. You get more opportunities when you dive in it at an early age: you look young and beautiful, you have more energy and more time to learn, less of life’s busy errands. However, I truly believe that to start following your passion is never too late. Look at actors like Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford. I think starting it later in life just tells you that you are serious about it. I think age should never be a barrier in an actors career. You should be passionate about what you do, give your full dedication, be focused and work hard, and certainly your career should bloom.

The industry has to allow the audience to hear the variety of accents present in the world and let people know that this is normal; that this is the closest thing to truth and life. I always find myself asking, “Why do these films have to be so standardized and limited?” Casting directors should not refuse a talent just because on a CV it says: Indian, Russian, or Chinese.
