4. Craziest fan story?

A Witches of East End fan a couple of months [ago] had a tattoo of the sisters — of me, Rachel, and Julia. It was just our profile and it was like, kind of amazing. And I also felt a little bit bad because the show was canceled [laughs]. And now it lives on, on his body, and we can’t continue the stories for him! Yeah, it was pretty crazy.

5. Which emoji do you use the most?

I either use the shock face, the eyes that are big and wide. Or the cheese face [that's] like, ehh, I don’t know about that!

Speed bumps. They drive me nuts. I will take different routes to go around speed bumps.

7. What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you on-stage dancing or on set?

I was dancing in the Miss Texas pageant, not as a contestant but I was like the hired talent for the show to entertain the show. And I was going off stage doing a jazz walk, and I tripped on a contestants foot and fell on my face in a spider crawl, on TV. I mean, it was only in Texas, but still. I went to school the next day and everyone was like, “We saw you when you fell on stage!” And yeah, that was embarrassing. I’ve fallen a lot.

"I really would like to be in a musical."

22. Biggest fear?

Sharks. It cripples me from swimming in the ocean. I swim for like 10 seconds and I swim out really fast. I’m terrified of sharks! And everyone says it’s easier to die in a car accident than a shark [attack], but do you know how bad it would suck to be eaten by a shark?! [laughs] It’s like, why risk the one percent? And I think I’m like kind of the same size as a seal, it freaks me out.

"Be you — people want to see you."

23. Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Jennifer Lopez actually gave me a really good piece of advice, where she’s like, “Be you — people want to see you. In everything, from when you're acting to everything, just remember to be you. Bring your best self forward.”
