The words -- lights, camera, sound and action -- turn me on. I have become addicted to acting.
I think it is my nature that I dare to try things that others don`t. Even at school I never wore a dress that was similar to the ones my friends had. In fact, I always experimented with my clothes and looks.
When I was in school I used to compare myself to American actors and Miss World and Miss Universe. But today after being in this world I don`t feel glamorous anymore.
