Bryce Dallas Howard worked in a childcare centre for four years before deciding she wanted to be an actress.

The 'Twilight Saga' actress - who is the daughter of Oscar-winning director Ron Howard - was not always keen on being a movie star and previously considered working in childcare or forensic anthropology.

She said: "My memory of coming around to this idea of acting was that it was almost a discovery. For a long time I was thinking about a few other professions that I was very seriously considering. When I was applying to colleges is when I realised I wanted to study acting along with writing in a double major.

"Writing is a huge thing for me, and I was interested in forensic anthropology. I was really into it for a long time, I think because my best friend was into it. I admired her greatly. And then I considered child care - I worked in a centre for four years."

But now she is an actress, the 30-year-old star enjoys taking on roles where she can completely change from her own way of life, rather than put a bit of herself into a character.

She explained in an interview with website AskMen: "For myself, part of the joy for me is creating someone different or going into a world I didn't know about that is unfamiliar. It's a difference in approach.

"Sometimes these other folks have something very special in them that they offer, so it doesn't totally matter what the character is because each time they bring themselves. I am a little bit more obsessed with a character. I've never articulated that before.

"It's not that I'm a serious person, I'm playful and stuff like that but I take characters very seriously and the work very seriously. I have a lot of fun with it and really enjoy myself."
