What I thought of as myself as a performer, I looked back and was like, ‘Wow, I improved from where I was.’ I thought I was ready and then saw the improvements I made which were unbelievable.

You’re prepared for what they need.

Mosca had a hunch that if all damsels had claws they would spend a lot less time ‘in distress’.
