#Quote
1[on finding inspiration from Julie Andrews] When I was a little girl I tried to get out of the house as much as I could, just to walk through nature alone and sing. So when I first saw that character emerge, singing, running through the hills, I completely related to what she was doing. It sounds so corny, but I celebrated nature as a child. And it sang back.
