"There were, like, 30 kids in acting class; half of them weren’t even theater majors. I just was really itching to get out and do stuff, and I think I also had done really poor research. Like, I didn’t know there was a place like Juilliard. I think that’s what I thought [NYU was like] — you just do acting all day. This was like, you take hard classes, in subjects I wasn’t prepared for — which I actually wish I paid more attention to." - from Buzzfeed.com, Aug 30, 2013
