My dad was an FBI agent, and he’d take me to auditions when I was younger, and when I didn’t get the part I’d be so devastated. He always used to say, “Candice, just because you’re shot, doesn’t mean you’re gonna die.” A very law enforcement type of analogy, but I got it. That phrase has stuck with me forever.
