She got excited of all the footage she saw of ‘Victoria and Abdul’ and I guess she saw something in me which she thought had promise. I am really excited to be signed on by Julian Belfrage Associates who manage some of the best talent out there and I am really excited for this new dimension and beginning. It’s a new market for me.
