"I’ve been acting since really early in elementary school. The first play I was ever in was Hansel and Gretel in the 3rd grade. I played Hansel and I always did plays in school from then on and tried to get into summer stuff."
"I love going to movies, so if I have a couple of days off, I'll always spend just like one whole day in the theater. I'll go around 12PM and I'll stay until 10PM and I'll see like, 4 or 5 movies that I haven't had a chance to see while I've been working. And then I'll play a lot of video games, ‘cause I'm sort of a loser that way. That's a lot of sitting around, so I try to do some active stuff too. I love to play Ultimate Frisbee. I like to go jogging. Just being outside in general is good. The sun is good."
