Alexa Vega
I didn’t always want to act. My passion was writing, and it still is one of my primary passions to this day, but it wasn’t until high school when I started acting in plays that it became a thought of something I might want to do. And when I applied to colleges, at NYU, I was able to study both writing and acting.

I remember that when I got to NYU, everyone was writing scripts. But I was 18 at the time, and when you write a script, so much of it is about what you pull from life, and this sounds sort of cheesy, but I felt like I didn’t have enough life experience at that point to write a movie.

I just went to Times Square and the underground movies, sometimes three a day. I did get my education. But I really believed then, in 1966, they would not have allowed me to make any of the movies I made. Today, you could make a snuff movie at NYU and get an A.

Erica Schroeder
My grades in high school were not very good. I was that kind of perfectionist that figured if you can’t do it perfectly, why do it at all?
