Naomie Harris practised trying to cry
London April 17 (IANS) Actres Naomie Harris says she practised crying as a child.
"I would spend hours in front of the mirror pretending to be someone else making myself cry trying out accents - I just loved it and would literally spend the whole day doing that. I was really lucky because some mothers would have thought Oh my God my child is just crazy but my mum actually said Ah she has a talent she has an interest " Harris told Irish Independent newspaper.
"She enrolled me at the Anna Scher Theatre School and everything started from there because they had an agency attached to the school and I started auditioning and got jobs " Harris added.
The actress said she moved into a "weird profession" in light of her shy nature reported femalefirst.co.uk.
"What I really enjoyed was losing myself in character finding out what it was like to be someone else and getting inside that and disappearing that s what I really loved as a child " she said.
She has overcome her shyness.
Harris added: "I m not shy anymore but I m not comfortable being in the spotlight I m not someone that enjoys being observed. I m more of an observer but I do still love that thing of where you find a character to such an extent that you actually feel like someone else there s a freedom in that which I really enjoy."
