Personal Quote:

Each one of my characters has some part of me. With Belle in Widows (2018), her physical prowess and the way she moves is very close to me. Darlene in Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) could be the most like me in spirit. She has this very strong will to survive; she never really gives up, and if she does, it's not without fighting. Music is a part of her, which is something that's very important... See more »
