As an actor you just want to work and then you just want to be on a show or have a job that you love and you hope that job will last - those things have happened. To have that platform to then talk about something that is very personal to me like marriage equality it feels like a gift. I try and really respect that voice and not abuse it.
I'll tell you there is nothing better in life than being a late bloomer. I believe that success can happen at any time and at any age.
