The 27-year-old actress chatted about her future in films, cooking and things on her own bucket list. Check it:
On looking to the future: “I’m ready for audiences to see me like this. I’ve acted for so long now, and there’s so much more I want to do. I’m all about pushing myself and taking myself out of my comfort zone. High School Musical was a life-changing experience and I’m so proud to have been a part of this big, positive thing that inspired a lot of people.”
On her family ties: “My parents didn’t really like the whole acting thing at first. Growing up, it really was more of a privilege to go on auditions. It was something that I always wanted, but the deal was that I ha to do well in school, and then I could go audition.”
On her bucket list: “There’s plenty of things I still want to accomplish professionally. But I also want to do other things like go shark diving!”
