21: Life After Leaving

[Indep. Film/TV/Theatre Actress, Film Fanatic, Music Lover, Professional Goofball, Misfit Adventurer, and Sarcasm Extraordinaire.]

I gave up everything to help my family- my savings, a 2,000 mile move away from home, my final year of drama school, and a film dream that seemed so close to being real. This past year has been pretty shitty for me, but I think I'm beginning to realize the beauty of how life moves on. I don't know when I'll be able to start again, but my dream is still there, as it has been for the past 21 years. I now know that my time in limbo has done nothing but help me see this world in a more beautiful and unfiltered way. And I now know that that's the reason I gave everything up... because following a dream without seeing what it's really worth to you, is worth nothing at all.

The Railway Man (2013)

Finally got the chance to see The Railway Man; beautiful film with a remarkable story. Incredibly brutal moments of silence, that make the story even more compelling. Jeremy Irvine’s “Colin Firth acting” is also fantastically spot-on.Β
