What's your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

A photo of my kids at the beach.

When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

Red wine, Cabernet or Malbec.

What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?


What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

Prepared Food Delivery services.

Who is the last person that called or texted you?

My friend and fellow actress Zabryna Guevara from the TV show Gotham.

What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

When I was the only one who clapped, enthusiastically, after the first movement of a classical piece at the NY Philharmonic. I was in the front row and the conductor turned around and looked at me. So embarrassing! I just sheepishly smiled at him and he kindly smiled back. I learned that day that you are only supposed to clap after all the movements of a piece and that most classical pieces have more than one movement! So now whenever I attend the symphony I wait until other people start to clap. Just in case.


When is the last time you went to a theater?

January 2, 2015 took my husband and kids to see Keke Palmer in the title role of Cinderella on Broadway. Keke is a good friend of my best friend and her husband who cast Keke in the film Akeela and the Bee when she was 11 years. They also attended the play. Afterwards we got to go back stage and see Keke’s dressing room and take photos with her.

What TV show should everyone be watching?

Besides Jane the Virgin — shameless plug ;) — they should also be watching Louie. It's such a funny show.

And what is your TV guilty pleasure?

American Idol — I know, not so guilty but its one of the few things I watch and its my special girl time with my daughter. We’ve been watching together since she was 4 and she’s 10 now.

What's the first album you bought?

Sting, Englishman in New York.

What is the one food you cannot resist?

Dark chocolate.

What music are you currently listening to?

Sam Smith.

What movie makes you laugh the most?


What drives you absolutely crazy?

When I have told my kids umpteen times to do something and they haven't.

Pick one: Kittens or puppies?


New York or Los Angeles?

New York.

Comedy or drama?


Bacon or Nutella?


'80s or ‘90s?


Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?


And finally: tell us a secret.

Was at the Soho House recently and in the ladies room they had free lip glosses in the rest room for guests. So I took 2! And I felt guilty. I don’t know why but I did. I rationalized with myself that I liked the color and they were free!

Watch Jane The Virgin, Mondays at 9/8c on The CW.
