My dad always says be nice to the people on the way up because you'll need them on the way down.
I'd like to see what it's like to be inside the head of Tim Burton. The guy just fascinates me. I'm a fan of most of his films and also his book, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy. He has such an interesting perspective on things.
I was planning on travelling but all of my friends were auditioning for something so I thought I'd do it for the experience
