New Moon’s Anna Kendrick did an interview with NY Daily News where she talked about how grateful she is to have started her career in NY rather than L.A:
Q. As a cast member in “New Moon,” you’re surrounded by young actors transitioning to adult careers. Are you glad you started out in New York rather than L.A.?
A. Absolutely. Thank God I started on stage and not in film. On a film set, you’re sort of coddled, but when you’re on stage, even as a 12-year-old, you’re expected to be a professional and deliver every night. It was hard work, and sometimes it was really lonely, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
