Positive Quotes By Becki Newton

I do tell people   when I'm walking down the street that they should really rethink their whole   outfit.

I'd have loved to   have appeared in 'Absolutely Fabulous' - that's one of my favourite shows.

I started out a   die-hard New Yorker but really grew to love working in Los Angeles. Even   though I originally wanted to do theater, TV presented more opportunities for   me, which led me out west.

In N.Y.C., I   auditioned for mostly 'quirky friend' roles. Since casting directors in L.A.   lacked a preconceived notion of me, I was able to reinvent my type a bit,   which was essential in booking the role of Amanda on 'Ugly Betty.' I don't   believe I would have auditioned for that role in N.Y.

I would say to an   actor new to the business that it's best to go where you are most comfortable   as a person, both in and outside of the business.

I have a degree in   European history, which didn't necessarily have any direct impact on my   career, but I'm grateful I studied something other than acting in college.
