My mother is a woman who completely possessed her own agency and embodied a sense of her own power, unapologetically,” Ross says. “I think that lends itself to directing. I don’t have a fear in making a choice or expressing my opinion even if no one else likes it—or not even expressing it, but owning it for myself.
