New York.

Have faith in yourself.

Cutting Stone.
The Witching Hour, I would like to play Rowan Mayfair.

How do you define power? Do you enjoy it? How do you live with your success?

The ability to move others while being inspired yourself. I live with “success” by not buying into it.

When do we stop asking questions about gender equality? When will it be Power People instead of Power Women? Is gender more important than politics?

Some of it frightens me, some of it I cannot believe I have lived without.
