There are two names that jump right out to me they are Mariska Hargitay and Katie Holmes. Both of these women are incredibly talented, and also wonderful moms, they would be down on their knees right after a take to play with their kids. They’re beautiful women inside and out, and that’s what inspires me!
Never give up. Just follow your dreams because this business can be so hard sometimes. It doesn’t happen overnight where you get an audition or even a callback and get the role. It takes time.
Things will come to you when the time is right and I say just go for it. If you love what you want to do, just keep on going.
I feel like a big thing is faith – to never lose my faith and to always stay true to who I am and to never be afraid to show who I am. I think the biggest thing is: Don’t ever hide anything.
I honestly don’t even know how I got into acting. It happened so quickly because my mom and sister used to do commercials, and apparently when I was little I would unbuckle myself from the stroller and crash their auditions.
Be prepared for negative responses sometimes. It doesn’t have anything to do with you. It’s just sometimes you’re not the right look, or you’re not really what they were envisioning.

I wake up to an email from the writers with the new script, and I always get so excited because I know it’ll be better all-around than the script from the week before.
I was trying to get into the business from a young age, but I don’t think I really realized how much I loved it until I booked my first movie and found myself in New Zealand for six months filming Bridge to Terabithia.
I want to be the coolest aunt in the entire world.
