  1. In the event you were in repertory theater, you would be a spear carrier. And then you would have three lines. And then, maybe you would get a supporting role. And maybe, way out there in the distance, there would be a lead role for you. Whereas, in the event you were on a soap, you get to play falling in love, you get to play falling off a cliff, you get to play all of these different things. Every day, they’re coming at you. You can do a year of rep inside of three months.
