When it came to ‘Binge,’ it wasn’t my intention to get on a little soapbox and have a teaching moment. It was more, ‘Here are things that have happened to me; here’s what I’ve learned from it. If you’d like to learn from it too, great; if you just like the entertainment aspect, that’s fine too.’

I told everyone I would never be an actor. People used to tell me, ‘Hey, you got a good look. You should try.’ And I was like, ‘Nah. That’s not me.’ And then, the moment I tried it, I found I loved it more than anything in the world, and that taught me a lesson. That is, just go for it.
