A. That’s not really a question I get, but it’s more of an assumption people seem to make when they learn my immediate family lives in North Carolina.
But to answer the question: No. My immediate family lives in North Carolina, but we are not from there.
Having moved around a lot, I don’t really feel as if I’m from anywhere. This was a bit of a dilemma in college when having to write my actor bio for programs. Most of the actors would lead with their hometown. I didn’t have a hometown. My family moved right after I graduated from high school, so it was inappropriate to say that that new location was my hometown.
Now, I tend to answer the question “Where are you from?” with “I live in New York City.” Technically, I’m not answering the question, in which case I sometimes supplement that answer with “I have Ohio roots” or “I moved here from Ohio.”
I was born in Ohio if that helps you try to place me for whatever diabological anthrographic interests you have.
