  • In an interview, while talking about how she spent her childhood, she said,

    As a kid, I was very studious, very nerdy, very tomboyish. I wanted to be a boy. I thought that was more interesting than being a girl. I had a younger brother who I grew up with who was my best friend and a little, little brother who’s 12 years younger than me. So he was a baby that we raised. Our family was very close. We went on bike rides all the time and my brothers and I would make movies in the backyard with a video camera and make claymations and sitcoms. We’d always be creating something, music or freestyling or doing improv with our friends in our basement.”

  • In 2014, she was nominated for Best Actress in a Television Drama Series for the famous TV Series “Orphan Black” at the prestigious Golden Globe Awards.
  • In an interview, she revealed that after knowing about the character she had to play in the popular television series “Orphan Black,” she realised that she had to be prepared physically and mentally for the role. She said,

    I had to be on my A game, physically, from the beginning. I knew I needed the endurance to go through the entire series, however long it lasts. I have to be really specific about how a person moves through the world and explore the different ways people differentiate themselves – how a person’s world view affects their physical relation to the space and other people around them. I needed to be as malleable as possible – less bulked up and tough so much as flexible and adaptive. Versatile – you know what I mean? I needed to have all these colours in my palette, instead of just nerdy me with this limited physical vocabulary.”

  • She played her first superhero role in the 2022 superhero television series “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.” In an interview, while sharing her story about how she auditioned to play She-Hulk, who is the cousin of The Hulk, she said,

    I didn’t know She-Hulk before this. I had seen that image of her, but I had never engaged with it. I went back and read the comics and it was really the uniqueness of that character and the space she occupies in the Marvel universe — which is very meta and self-aware and poking fun at Marvel — that was so cool to me. It just seemed so different and it became something I just had to audition for.”
