During an interview with the Los Angeles Times in 2013, Good revealed that she has been forced to turn down roles that conflict with her Christian beliefs.
“I have my parameters of what I feel in my spirit is appropriate,” she told the Los Angeles Times.
“There have been times where it’s been tough because it’s something I really wanted, but the nudity would be exploitative and I’d lose the opportunity, but what I’ve found is that the more I stick to my convictions, the more God sticks to his promises.
“When I would lose something, something better would come up than what I turned down,” she said. “And I’ve been able to pay my bills doing nothing else since I was 13.”
