The 22-year-old actress chatted with New Moon costar Michael Sheen on her upcoming film, Apparition, her fall back career and Days of Our Lives. Check it:
On Apparition: “The great thing about this film is that itâ€™s really serious. Itâ€™s more of a thriller. And, for once, I got cast first. They consulted me on the lead male, and weâ€™re talking back and forth about this character, so itâ€™s sort of a new stepping stone in my career.”
On almost going into law instead of acting: “I loved the classes. Everything was kind of set up to go on this course, which my parents absolutely loved; they were like, ‘Our daughterâ€™s going to go to law school or become a psychologist!’ And then out of nowhere, I pulled the acting card on them.”
On her first audition: “The first audition I went on was Days of Our Lives. I auditioned five times for it, and I met the producersâ€”it was that thing where the first audition just went really well. I mean, I had a manager in Florida and I got my agent before I moved to Californiaâ€”I came out to L.A. all set up, and then I did extremely well in my first audition, so I had this kind of false hope in my mind. You know, everyone says itâ€™s really hard, but then you come out and do extremely well the first go. And then reality hits, and itâ€™s like nothing, nothing, nothing for a long time. Of course, I didnâ€™t actually get the part on Days of Our Lives. They just toyed with me for a little bit.”
