I’m always encouraging actors to be in charge of their careers. I say, “control what you can control and forget about the rest.” Where have you found inspiration recently to go after what you really want out of your career?
M.V: At this point in the game, I rarely even use the word “career” as it’s more just my life, the way I live. I’ve been playing a lot with the idea that life is a dance and have found myself embracing the dance move called “the pivot.” Meaning: If something isn’t working, hitting, responding as it should I pivot to what is calling me or where feedback seems to be coming from. It might not be what I “want” however it’s where the universe is leading me. And so in this way I continue to follow the signs as to where to go and what to do next.
