Steve Braun, on facing rejection with joy in the work-
“There is so much that is joyful about acting. You get to feel and express deep elements of the human experience that most people out there in the world won’t even go near, because they can’t, or don’t have the courage. You get to feel that multiple times a day. So you can focus on the joy of it and let that lead you. And that’s the work of loving the work.”
