The 16-year-old actress chatted with the mag about her older brother Chase and how fortunate she is to have him in her life as well as what she loves about her career. Check it:
On having her brother Chase in her life: “My older brother Chase is a huge factor in who I am. Moving as many times as we have, heâ€™s the only kid Iâ€™ve known my whole life. There are things that I see in him that I wish I was like, & there are things that Iâ€™ve learned from. Heâ€™s been through more than he lets on & his strength, grace, hard work, & talent inspire me. Sometimes, heâ€™s my polar opposite, sometimes weâ€™re twins. He can be a teacher to me, a student, a father, and is always my best friend. Chase tells me everyday that Iâ€™m beautiful. He told me that every girl deserves to hear it. Probably the most important thing heâ€™s taught me is that I could live my life, not let people in, and never be hurt while never truly feeling. Or, I can, while still being wise, let people in, be hurt, take a chance, but really live, really feel, and really grow.”
On what she loves and dislikes about her job: “I love that I get to learn about different cultures, get inside someone elseâ€™s head. From a kidâ€™s point of view, I love being able to. through cake at someone (on Suite Life) or fall in the hot tub/I donâ€™t like to complain. Maybe, I wish that this industry wasnâ€™t based on surface. What people look like, dress like, how they hold themselves dictates a large part of their career.”
