Jacqueline Emerson gets gussied up for a new feature with Zooey magazine.
The 17-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about movies, music and education. Check it:
On getting into Stanford University: “I’m definitely going to go. I’m either going to go next year or the year after, just because everything is kind of taking off right now so I’m thinking about deferring. But, I’m very excited because that was my first choice. I went in for Early Action, and I got in. So, I had to email all the other colleges and was like, ‘Sorry!’ Education is very important to me, it is a top priority. No matter what, I’m definitely going to go to Stanford. It might take me a lot longer to finish school than it does other people, but I’m still going to go.”
On her own bucket list: “I would LOVE to work with [Martin] Scorsese, at any point in my life. I just love his work so much. Other than that, everything is pretty much just acting and singing related. I want to perform on the Staples Center stage. The only concerts I’ve ever been to, have been there. It’s always been that pinnacle for me. Also, I have to be on the Ellen Show. That is definitely on my bucket list. I love her show, it’s my favorite.”
On falling for music and acting: “It was literally exactly the same time for both. Because the first thing I ever did in either of them was the musical Annie, when I was six years old. That’s when I fell in love with both singing and acting. After that I started going to musical theater acting camp over the summer. I really just fully immersed myself in it.”
