“You know, um, my family has given up so much for me to be where I am right now. I’m the oldest of six kids and I started acting when I was four, so, it’s such a sacrifice for everybody whenever I had to go out-of-town and do movies because my mom believed that a lot of actors in Hollywood that go down the wrong path – the reason for it was because they weren’t surrounded by their core, their family. And with my mom, she traveled with every single one of my sisters and the whole family together. We would go on location to where I was filming. So, she never separated us. But that meant my sisters had to give up their normal childhood like going to school and being with friends. They were with me all the time. But I appreciated that because it’s kept me grounded and level-headed. So, I would say that they gave up so much and were so beyond supportive and I am forever thankful for that.”
