I never had any kind of opportunities to even see if I could act or if I would even be offered a role, so when I was choosing what I wanted to do in the university I went with investigative journalism as it seemed a lot more realistic, but then I kind of pulled up my socks and got some guts and came down to India and actually tried acting and it really worked, so it was amazing.”
