What do you most love about being an actress?
There are a lot of things I love about being an actress. I love being able to study, portray, and have fun with different character for auditions. I also love being able to work with amazing actors, and crew, because you get to learn a lot from them, as well.
What is the hardest thing about being in the industry?
The hardest part about being in this industry is learning how to deal with rejection. It’s important to remind yourself everything happens for a reason, and there will be something just as good waiting for you.
How do you prepare for a role?
In order to prepare for a role, I study the information I am given, which is the character description, and the script. I like to create backstories on the character, so that way I can figure out what are their motives, and goals.
You are an actress and singer. If you could only choose to do one thing what would it be?
I could never choose only one! I love them both way too much. Thank God Snow Day had me doing both!
What was your most memorable moment from the filming of Snow Day? My most memorable moment was getting to work with our cast and crew. I met my now best friends and got to learn so much from everyone on set, which I will carry with me forever, and that to me is so rewarding.
You are doing so much and are still in school. How do you balance it all?
I definitely try to keep a schedule in handy, ha-ha. I am currently working on finishing school earlier, so I can focus on acting and singing more.
What is your advice to aspiring actors?
As cliche as it might sound, but it is the truth, if you believe in yourself, you are capable of doing incredible things. Don’t let anyone ever bring you down, remember that there is always another door open when on closes, and always stay humble.
