Quotes[edit | edit source]

« For any actor who has lived their life outside of the gender roles, it allows them to bring something a little more nuanced to each character and make something believable out of it. That's what is cool about being a nonbinary actor. I feel that I can put as much into the male roles as the female roles — and all the ones in between, too. I've had the experience of all of those characters and I have had the experience of trying to fit into those worlds as much as I possibly could as I was trying to figure out who I was.[5] »
