Chasing Life's Jessica Meraz Opens Up About April & Natalie's Complicated Relationship

Jessica Meraz shows some leg in this new feature for the March 2015 issue of NKD magazine.

The Chasing Life actress opened up to the glossy about the show and the impact it’s had. Check it:

On how she started acting: “I started doing theater at 7. I did theater all of my life, and then my junior year I went to camp out here [in California] for the summer, and then I came out here for college at USC.”

On Chasing Life: “It was tackling such a serious issue while having all of these really funny parts. It was such an entertaining script. I remember finishing the pilot, before my character was even part of it, and it was just a script that, even just from reading it, really moved you, and it was funny at the same time. It’s a really well-written show, Joni [Lefkowitz] and Susanna [Fogel] are bad ass writers. They wrote a play before that I had read and another really good script.”

On what she’s learned from the show: “I’ve learned how cancer affects everybody. It gives another level to the show, that we’re not just entertaining but we can also use it as a platform to let people know that they’re not alone, especially if they are a young adult going through this. Sister relationships are complicated, and you really get to see that. It’s family and there’s going to be a lot of ups and downs. Sometimes they get to connect, and they’re really not going to see eye to eye other times.”
