The 20-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about The Flash, body positivity, and more.
On how The Flash changed her life: “Since landing The Flash, my life has been completely different! It’s been a whirlwind of amazing ups and a few downs, but I was in no way prepared for it. You don’t really realize it, but there are some awesome opportunities that come along with being part of a comic book/sci-fi show. Besides starting out with such an immense fan-base and huge supporters, there’s crazy comic cons you get to attend where you can meet the fans and talk about the show.”
On how she stays so fit: “Well thanks for thinking I’m ‘fit’ but I don’t follow anything too strict. I try to be realistic with myself–I love chocolate and tacos and pizza. I exercise 2-4 times a week, because I think it’s important to keep your body moving, but I don’t want to portray a false image of myself in the media. A lot of the woman’s bodies you see in magazines and on TV have come from hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars spent on personal trainers, health cleanses, and unfortunately sometimes unhealthy means. I want to be a part of the movement that tells little girls their bodies are enough and beautiful.”
On beauty tips she swears by: “Use all-natural, cruelty-free products!!! There’s no reason to use something that’s either toxic or has been applied to innocent animals.”
