“I had cancer when I was sixteen. But honestly, it was so long ago that it’s almost like it happened to a different person. It doesn’t color my interactions or anything. But I’m a dancer, and I do think it’s affected my dancing. There’s this interesting tension between training and striving to control every movement of your body, and realizing that at any moment, your body can rebel against itself in a way that’s completely out of your control.”
I think my biggest challenge is that a lot of the time, people see you as only one thing. It’s not their fault, because you know someone from what you know them from. But I don’t consider myself a comedian; I consider myself an actor who does comedy…and also drama. I’ve done dramatic roles—I really love them and hope to do a lot more.
So this spiral, this is the golden ratio and it’s a mathematical pattern that just repeats itself in nature, in flower petals and honeybees and, you know, the stars in the galaxy and in every molecule of our DNA. God, we’re so different, all of us.
