Just do your best. I find that if I set that goal for myself and no one else, I feel good.
When I got the script for 'Winter Soldier,' I was so excited to see that my character finally gets to punch somebody! So I took tae kwon do three times a week. I wanted to feel like I could hold my own in a roomful of superheroes.
'The Avengers' happened because I'm friends with Joss Whedon, and he sort of brought me into the mix when they were looking for Maria Hill.
There's something cool about traveling when you're young. There's a sense of camaraderie. You learn more about yourself.
There's something that feels more organic about watching a stunt that's done by you. There's also a feeling of accomplishment doing it yourself.
I like to challenge myself. Whether that's on television or film or on stage, that's what I'm going to go for.
I think to be a good model, you have to enjoy having your picture taken, and I never really did.
I studied acting throughout high school, then modelling took over because it brought more opportunity. When I quit modelling, coming back to Vancouver, I registered at the University of Victoria.
