Like other youngsters who are attracted to the glitz and glamour of show business, Rachel Fox wants to make it big in Hollywood. Her initial step has been fruitful so far, seeing that she has already landed several TV gigs after her debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live
in 2005. Although she appeared on the soap Passions
, the Disney hit show Hannah Montana
and the spy series Alias
, her stint on the ABC award-winning dramedy Desperate Housewives
remains to be her most extensive exposure so far. But now, this 11-year-old actress is hunger for more.
"I was thinking prime-time television," Fox, who aspires to have her own Hannah Montana
-type show on ABC in the near future, told the N.Y. Daily New
s. "I don't go small."
In the meantime however, Fox is concentrating on her role as Desperate Housewives
' newest bad girl. As Kayla Huntington, daughter of Tom Scavo (Doug Savant
) and one-night stand Nora Huntington, she has been stirring up trouble for stepmother Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman
). In the beginning of their relationship, Kayla seemed to take a liking to Lynette and was sympathetic during her battle with cancer, but their relationship has taken a turn for the worse, especially in last week's episode.
"Eeeevil," Fox said. "Every time I walk onto the set and get into the makeup chair, everyone calls me 'eeeevil.' I love it. I love playing evil. I feel like I can do more with the character than just playing the nice girl."
"She is every parent's worst nightmare," she added. "She does so many evil things, I wish I could tell you!"
As the tension between Lynette and stepdaughter Kayla heats up in the last episodes of the fourth season of Desperate Housewives
, speculations have surfaced regarding a possible recast for the character of Kayla, leaving Fox's fate on the series uncertain. You can read more about it in this article
