Generally, I play the kind of ethereal, fragile-on-the-outside-but-hard-and-damaged-on-the-inside type.
I love new cities, and if I haven't travelled for a month, the need to go somewhere starts to gets under my skin.
In a photo shoot, you have to be very comfortable in your own skin. It's all about confidence-boosting and putting on armor.
I live in L.A. and I do have wonderful friends; I moved there when I was 19 so I developed a close knit group of friends, none of whom are actors, none of which are Australian, but I couldn't do it long term.
I really like being thrown into the works. Many actors, I have found, have this as a common trait. We had to, as children, adapt to various situations with either a military family or things like that.
