I just read an article on Lupita Nyong’o and the process she went through for getting her breakthrough role in “12 Years A Slave.” She was quoted in the article saying “As actors, you become an expert at starting over,” when discussing auditioning and the ways in which she prepares for roles. Not only could I relate to this quote as an actor, but also on a personal level. I’m sure I have already subconsciously made this correlation, but for what felt like the first time, I became aware that not only have I had ample experience in starting over in terms of acting roles, but also in my personal life. I am undoubtedly exceptional at starting over in terms of being resilient, and I can say that with confidence because of the substantial amount of hardships I have faced in my life. Reading this article did not only provide me insight regarding industry research, which was my initial intent, but also in myself and why the abilities I have cultivated for one of my chosen career paths are genuinely innate.
