A Childhood Story that Explains Who You Are as a Person/Actor: I always knew I wanted to be a singer. The acting came along with it. I used to run around my living room, jumping on and off furniture, while listening to and singing along with the Canadian cast recording of The Phantom of the Opera and the Aladdin soundtrack. I realize that's not so much a story as it is a fun fact about me, but there you have it. I've always known I wanted to be a performer, and I have no intentions of giving up on that. "All I gotta do is juuuuump."
