I was a full foot taller than any child my age.
I’ve always just gone with the best role, and I don’t care if it’s in theater, film or television.

I literally felt like a freak, which is another aspect of the role of Sally that I relate to: total outsider.

It was only when I moved to New York that I realized tall is good.
I like people-watching and fading into crowds.
