Q: What are the projects that you are currently working on?
Right now I’m a theatre student at the University of Victoria and Sarah Daniels has cast me in their upcoming production of Gut Girls. Because of my commitment to the program, it doesn’t give me much room to work professionally while in school, so film and TV work has been pretty much put on hold, with a few exceptions such as The Grand Unified Theory which is an independent film written and directed by David Ray and shot in Vancouver over the summer when I was out of classes.
Q: Please tell us what do you feel is your biggest achievement?
Honestly, just getting through high school felt like a big accomplishment! I’ve always enjoyed school however it was a lot to handle when I was working and auditioning all the time. I’m much happier now that I’m at university and I don’t have to divide my time between school and work as much.
Q: Besides acting, what are you passionate about?
My Dad gave me his record collection when I was just starting high school and since then I’ve been collecting my own records. Music is a huge part of my life, and for every new role I also like to make a playlist of music that helps me get into character.
Q: Who is your celebrity crush?
Zach Efron! When I was 11 I watched high school musical more times than I can count, I had a picture of him in my locker and everything.
Q: Who is the most important person in your life?
My brother is number one. He’s living in Halifax and I’m in Victoria, but we still make time to check in with each other.
Q: How can your fans interact with you online?
I’ve got to admit that my social media presence hasn’t been the most active lately, but when I get the chance I like to check up on Twitter and Instagram. The Supernatural and Haunting Hour fans on Twitter are awesome.
Q: At final, do you have anything to say to those aspiring teen actors or actresses?
Quit. If this discouraged you, you probably don’t have what it takes. It’s absolutely possible to have a career in film and TV, but it comes with a lot of rejection. Keep working at your craft and the work will come.
