Izabela Vidovic quotes
I think it is really all about, spreading love and equality, accepting yourself and others
All power to the people: regardless of gender, race, age, sexuality, and however you choose to identify yourself. Just a reminder for the ignorant people out there. Equality for everyone. Love you all.
I care about bullying because my friends are bullied, it was ugly to watch, I was bullied too in a different way, which doesn't make it any less ugly
My mom has been my main inspiration for pursuing acting as a career.
I look for three-dimensional characters, roles that are written with many layers.
Acting has taught me how to be a good listener. When you’re in a scene with someone, you can’t just be waiting for your turn to talk.
[If she were a queen] Equality and love for all is the most important thing. I would start by eliminating discrimination against any race, gender, sexuality, or way someone chooses to identify themselves. Prejudicial laws would no longer exist in the world.
