What was acting for “Unlocked” and “Happenstance” like?

What do you like most about acting?
What I like most about acting is that I am able to express more of my feelings.
Did you always have plans to follow your father’s footsteps?
Honestly, before, I had no plans of following in my dad’s footsteps. But as I grew older, I wanted to be like him, but greater. My dad is my idol but I want to be greater than him.
What’s the most valuable piece of advice your father has told you when it comes to show business?
Always be kind to your workmates. Always be humble and never underestimate acting. Always be down to earth. Always appreciate the roles that are given to you, and before acting, pray.
