Quote by Georgina Lightning

"I'm a trained actor. It was disheartening to go into the film industry after working in theatre. Walker, Texas Ranger? There's no range in that. Life's too short. I watch people like Tantoo [Cardinal]. They've had a big struggle as native actors. How do we make it easier for each other? Make your own opportunities."
