During her down time McCoy realized that her acting career was her priority: “I came to a point in my life where I really wanted to think about how I was spending my time, and why. And all of the directions just pointed to this is my career and what I want to do for the rest of my life.

Employment is hard. Luckily with a job like this, it’s a lot of job stability … I was in class, and I just wanted to be working. And when you know what you want to do so badly, you just want to do it. And if you’re lucky enough that that’s an option…it just kind of gave me a shift in my perspective.”

These days Eden is focused on developing her craft, sharing that she “found an amazing acting class and teacher who I started working with right out of the gate right when I took time off.”

Eden sounds like she’s at a bright point in her life, recognizing possibilities and chasing after them: “I feel so lucky to one, have a job, two, have a job actually doing something I like… that when I’m here and I have this job, I just want to take as much advantage of it as I can. I’m very happy now with where I’m at.”
