Behind the scenes of ‘Filibuster’
"I think I’m surprisingly different in real life than what people expect or what people project on to me. I’m not actually that awkward, I don’t think. I think people see me as this sarcastic person that doesn’t care about anything. But, on the contrary, I’m pretty emotional and sensitive and I care a lot about things and people. I think in moments where the spotlight is on me — like if I’m doing a talk show — my defenses come into play and maybe that’s why people see me that way. But, I think my sarcasm is often a way for me to get through those moments. I mean, if you came over to my house, I’d make you a cup of tea and be probably really interested in you."

I like to surround myself with people with skills that could be useful. That’s something I always keep in mind with like friends or boyfriends or whatever. I gave my boyfriend flying lessons for his birthday. He never showed an interest in flying but I just gave them to him like in case the world has gone to shit and we need to fly away. I was like I need to be with someone who can operate a helicopter.
