What do you believe in more I.Q or E.Q? And Why?
To me having a high IQ is an Advantage, but EQ makes all difference to a career. Emotional Intelligence demonstrates our ability to manage our feelings and relationship, improved skills or social skills are associated with EQ, but IQ is also very good to possess.
Do you know or use the brands you endorse? How Legit is your view?
I try to know most of the brands I use. Of course, as an actor, it is important to learn about the brands, as much as I can I research about how it’s made, where it comes from. I prefer and choose brands that come from fair-trade countries, I feel that the internet makes it easier now than ever to read up on what we are using.

Who do you think is next in line in your industry & why?
I think the future of films, will be tilted towards gadgets, and computers, special effects. I think that it is brilliant
and does not cost much and the sky is the limit for editing and creating surreal final frames.
Are you watching “The Crown”? Your preferred Netflix?
Yes for the curiosity I am watching Crown. I love Netflix, it is an old trusted platform and gives me many options than the TV serials.
