    (Viola Davis)

    “Most people will say, ‘Just go out there and do it (become an actor). Blah blah blah blah blah!'”

    “That’s true. Absolutely true. One hundred percent. But more than likely, it’s going to be hard!”

    “You’re looking at a profession where literally, with acting, less than one percent of the people make $50,000 a year or more. Less than one percent!”

    “Most of them can’t even make enough to make health insurance, which is $11,000 a year.”

    “But, what happens when you love it (acting) and you keep doing it and doing it and God intervenes and comes down and, all of a sudden, you take off! That’s when your sh-t has got to kick in.”

    “That’s when you have to be the artist and the person that you’ve always wanted to be. That’s when you have to find a voice that separates you from the rest.”

    “What is it? Sanford Meisner always said it. It’s the most powerful thing. The most powerful question you can ask is, “Why?'”
