1. AS MUCH AS I LIKE WATCHING HORROR FILMS, I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD ACT IN THEM.
2. L.A. CAN BE VERY SUPERFICIAL, AND IT’S HARD TO MEET COOL PEOPLE HERE. I TRY TO STAY AWAY FROM THE GLITZY SIDE OF THE BUSINESS AND HAVE A NORMAL LIFE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. I KEEP TO MYSELF.
3. I STARTED IN COMMUNITY THEATER AT 7 YEARS OLD. I LOVED BEING ON STAGE AND PERFORMING. AT THE TIME, I DIDN’T CORRELATE THAT THE STUFF I WAS DOING ON STAGE WAS THE SAME THING THAT I WAS WATCHING IN MY FAVORITE FILMS.
4. I WOULD LOVE TO GO INTO MUSICALS. I GOT A CHANCE TO SING IN ‘BIG MOMMA’S HOUSE,’ AND THAT’S SOMETHING I WOULD LOVE TO DO MORE. BUT ONLY IN BROADWAY OR IN THE MOVIES. I DON’T THINK I WOULD EVER SEEK A CAREER AS A SINGER.
