To be an actress and act crazy is really fun for me, to be able to be acting like you'd never be able to act in your real life and scream and freak out. It's an interesting test for an actor.
I'm very into fantasy films.
I'm really easily affected by horror films. I have pretty strong reactions to them.
I love stories about people that, whatever situation they're in, you can relate to them in a way.
I never know what's going to happen or what opportunities are going to be given to me. I've found with the opportunities that I've been given have made it possible for me to explore different characters and exciting stories.
I went to an all-girls school for part of high school, and the idea of boys was amazing to me. Like, all I ever wanted to do was kiss boys and be around boys.
