At the age of 17, one of her classmate’s parents offered her a scholarship in an acting school in New York. She lived in a small room in a club for women. She described the room as something smaller than her walk-in closet now. While she was there she would take a bath in communal showers, as the rooms didn’t have a bathroom of their own.Well, at least she could still take a shower. Life wasn’t that bad.
