Club” in 2008, “I broke one of my toes, and I already had really bad tendonitis in my heels, so I lost all mobility in one of my feet. I danced on it broken for four months. I had just started this little acting class, and I was reading a play when the phone rang, I picked up all the pages, ran and jumped over this camel saddle we had in our living room, and ran right into the fireplace.”
