Over her holiday, the 27-year-old actress spoke with New Zealand magazine, Viva, about her role on the hit CW show and life beyond her home country. Check it:
On life in LA: In LA, I live in Silverlake. It’s a great neighbourhood that feels like a bit of a Grey Lynn really, but with a more Hispanic influence through the city in general, and without our lovely rain. I jog a lot when I can, I’m running my first marathon next year raising money for a great organisation called Calico, that provides forensic investigation and support to children suffering abuse. While we are shooting iZombie, though, I spend almost all my time in Vancouver on set. Vancouver is a beautiful city on the water and my cast and crew have become very dear friends spending so much time together.
On the best and worst thing about her job: The best thing is the variety. I could never be bored. I meet so many great people and film in fantastic locations all over the place. The worst thing is feeling pulled in so many directions. It’s a luxury problem but now wherever I go I miss loved ones in other countries!
On why iZombie is the best: I feel people enjoy how self-aware our show is, that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. We are a show about a zombie detective after all. It’s fun and entertaining and a nice escape after a long day.
On where she is in filming the show: We are currently wrapping production on episode 13 of season two. It has been a mad-busy but exciting year of shooting and I’m so thrilled with how it’s all turning out. This episode I ate the brain of a pathological liar and the outcome lends itself to comedy and some serious drama in equal parts.
