Connie Britton Reveals What She'd Be Doing If She Wasn't An Actress

Posted: Updated:

If Connie Britton wasn't busy ruling the world with her magical hair and playing powerhouse characters like Tami Taylor and Rayna James, you'd probably find her in a classroom.

In an Oct. 7 HuffPost Live segment, Britton told host Caitlyn Becker what she'd be doing if she wasn't acting. Turns out, she had a passion for education and writing during her younger years:

[I'd be] teaching school and writing English textbooks. Maybe grade school. I actually taught right when I got out of college, really briefly, and I remember always thinking -- cause I loved writing -- and I remember thinking that the English textbooks were really lame and I always wanted to write a really cool one.

Britton also had some poignant advice to share with her 25-year-old self: "Just keep exploring and don't be afraid of anything, because the more you know yourself, the more you'll be able to accomplish the things you want to accomplish."

Preach, Connie.
