When you were 17, what did you want to be?
Before high school, I was a child actor – I did a small local TV show for three or four seasons. I don’t have the direct translation but the title basically means, “Grandson, Father & Grandfather,” and I was the grandson. I had so much fun. When I was in that phas, I thought, “I’m going to go to Hollywood, I’m going to be a big movie star.” But then my mom said, “Stop, study, go to school.” It was just taking too much time. My mom was basically chauffeuring me everywhere, and I was not doing great in school.
