I would love to be in a musical. Music has always been a big part of my life and after watching The Greatest Showman, I wanted to star in a musical even more.
How do you prepare for or unwind from a lengthy and tiring filming session? And what do you usually do on set?
I always recharge by going somewhere on holiday or taking some courses. As for my routine on set, I usually just read my script and practice before my scenes.
What’s the secret to having or building chemistry with your co-stars?
Thankfully, I adapt quite easily to new environments surrounded by new people. I first build chemistry with my co-stars by going through the reading process. This really helps us build our imagination and invites us to see to what direction we should take the film.
How do you find the time for other activities or even catching up with your family and friends when you’re in between filming, press conferences, and interviews?
My family and friends visit me at my work location if possible. Whenever I have a day off, we’ll often hang out or go somewhere together.
