‘You kind of take what comes your way,’ she told the outlet. ‘Before that, I was the ingénue. Then I was the vixen, swashbuckling and strong. I was enjoying playing those roles. I was getting success playing those roles.’

She opened up about the type of projects she’s partial toward, saying she’s ‘always just wanted to be surrounded by good people.

‘I always want to be a little fish in a big sea. I don’t ever want to be the big fish in a little sea of talent,’ she said. ‘If it is a little bit of typecasting, as long as it’s good work, and it’s good people, and I want to be there with those people. That was always how I chose what I chose then, and how I choose now.’
