"At least out there, there is a lot of respect and love given to writers and just writing which we are still waking up to over here so that's the only thing I would want maybe that just more respect for the writers so they feel motivated because eventually it's all in the writing.

"And of course the directing but eventually that's your raw material. So better opportunities I don't know but yes definitely I've seen characters like I would've loved to play Jennifer Lawrence's character in the Silver Lining Playbook and I was like that's such a brilliant character to play but maybe someday, hopefully," Alia added.
