The actress has already been a part of a handful of movies and portrayed some admirable roles on screen, but when asked about a particular character she wants to play in the future in an interview, she shared,

Every actor has one or two of these; some passed me by. I would love to have played Winnifred in Once Upon a Mattress; or mine would be Lady M in the Scottish play in an all Senior, hum? How old would Polonius have to be?? We'd wheel him behind the curtain

And she does not have any reason to stop or retire from her career, and we have reasons to believe that she is still striving for work as she has not made any announcement on that matter till date.
