Everything, ‘White Christmas’ – you know, Bing Crosby, I just found everything very ideal and dreamy and perfect.”
That made you want to act?
“Yeah, but that for me honestly was also kind of also the way I came into cinema. With that kind of aspect of larger-than-life films, songs, grand, grandiose, scale, glamour spectacle.”
