All these friendships and collaborations are for life. And that is the real thing. FCA made an excellent job of shaping me as an actress and preparing me for what is to come.
Teachers helped us during our studies, we produced plays, and still as students, we played shows in National Theater. We were on TV, even in the beginning of our studies, we were getting familiar with the camera, learning how to speak on TV, how to act.
