Asked if day will come that appearing on a YouTube series is as desirable as working in TV, she said: “I think it’s so fascinating what’s happening — that we have this other platform for material that is incredibly intimate and it feels like you don’t have to wait for somebody’s permission to be creative,” Beals said. “You don’t have to wait for that magic, huge number in order to go tell a story. And I love that.” Via The Wrap
