“I think the important thing is to just take in one step at a time. I think if you rush into fame, then that’s where it can be really affecting, and if you take it for granted, it can be really affecting.”
“At the moment, I’m sort of developing some of my own little short film ideas and trying to get into the directing side of things, just as an interest really, to see what it’s like.”
“I’m taking every day as it comes and there’s very little preparation that you can do apart from making sure you remain grounded and keep the people that are close to you close.”
