She said, “I think I was just very disheartened by the rejection, which is something I tell everyone. This industry is just full of rejection 24/7. You get ‘No’s, a lot of ‘No’s, before you get a ‘Yes.’ And I was auditioning for commercials, for anything really. I then auditioned for Game of Thrones and I got a ‘No’ for that. Then, that’s when I was like, ‘This is really difficult,’ and I guess I really wanted that role. So one of my last sort of goes at all this was a Netflix show called Montauk,” quoted Screen Rant.
