Erin Cummings said, One of the many reasons why I became an actress is because I couldnt decide what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to be an astronaut. I wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to do a million different things, and so, fortunately as an actress, you have the opportunity to dabble in every profession, youre role-playing. You can sort of live vicariously through the life of your character.
