She opens up about a lack of acting work since completing the third and final season of Marvel’s Daredevil. She was "struggling" even before the coronavirus crisis brought much of the entertainment industry to a standstill.
"I'm just really wondering whether I'll get to work again, whether anyone wants to work with me again, and whether I still have it, all of those scary things. And part of my brain goes, 'No, you're just being crazy, calm down.' But the part of me that loves [acting] and the problem with being an artist and an actor, and any of these professions where you put a piece of your soul into your work, is that it becomes a part of your identity."
"I haven't had an acting job since, and that's been really hard for me. So even before COVID kind of flipped the world on its head, I was struggling with this. And I think I was already in an uncertain place, and to add this other layer of uncertainty ... it's just compounding a little bit. And I have to figure out how I stay confident in myself, even when everyone else is telling me, 'Hey, we don't want to work with you right now,' or 'You're not our choice for this.'"
