- I was full of joy – it was my first movie, the audience response was tremendous, and on Opening Night Sony Pictures Classics announced they would be distributing the film and bringing us to Sundance.
- I was full of excitement – I completely lost my voice during day 2 of the press junkets – Abe wandered around the streets of Canadian Chinatown trying to find the “magic herbs” my Mom told him he needed to buy me.
- I was full of fear – my binge eating was at its worst. I didn’t care that I felt sick during Q&A’s and had a long flight home. I was too afraid to feel any of the above.
Well, a decade later, and I’m not the same person. But in a lot of ways I am. The ups and downs haven’t disappeared, but the ability to experience it has.
