“For years I felt unqualified and sought validation from everyone,” Stephanie Sandowns on her journey in the industry



Stephanie Sandowns has open up on the difficulty of being a skilled actor.

According to her, some feels acting is just a child’s play but all is scandal as what people see is not as easy as they say.

Stephanie decide to speak more about her own career as she explained how hard she worked in the industry to get to where she is now.

In her video, Stephanie can be seen unmasking the normally bubbly actress she’s usually known as on Scandal! and expressing a more fragile part of herself.

“Long and vulnerable but perhaps it inspires someone. So, for those who don’t know, acting was never the plan. It was never even an option really, I was an academic, well on my way to my PhD in social linguistics.”

“What started out as a way to make some extra cash on the side turned into a full-blown love for the art of storytelling.

“But for years I felt unqualified, seeking validation from anyone and everyone, validation that I had what it took to be a ‘thespian’. I’d idolise fellow actors and wish I could be as authentic and as vulnerable as they were.”
