Porojnicu made her comments to her social media fans this past week.
“I worked all summer in a cafe and I will keep this job for as long as I can while also going up to Manchester and film,” she wrote, in a series of Tweets. “And yes, it wasn’t easy after 6 months of living any actor’s dream to work on set full time. I wanted to quit and I cried a lot because it’s so stressful working in customer service!”
“Also, I couldn’t believe I have to do it again. Imagine having a family to take care of! Is not easy being constantly with or without job. Is true it affects your mental health as an actor!!” she added.
