Really insightful, would've been nice to get some daily routine, things actors do outside to keep them working
Are you kidding? How does she do it? So real. So natural. Can one be that brilliant and natural at the same time? No pretensions. She is a star but she is you.

I learned so much about how to channel your inner-self with the character/characters that you would be playing!!! I'm so inspired right now. Thank you so much, Natalie!!! You are so greatly appreciated!!!
Natalie is obviously a great actress and I think she did a great overall job of trying to cover all aspects of acting. I work in casting and it was also very helpful to me.
