See what she shared with us!

  • 1. I used to memorize and imitate episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse before I could even talk. I think that was one of the early signs that I wanted to be an actor!
  • 2. I can wiggle my ears, raise one eyebrow at a time and also one side of my lip at a time. My inspiration for my crazy faces is Jim Carey, and I always say that we both have stretchy faces made of rubber.
  • 3. I was born with bright blue eyes and blonde hair, but when I was about 3 years old, my hair started turning brown and my eyes turned green.
  • 4. In my free time, I like to go horseback riding, swimming and I like to bake. I learned my baking skills from my Grandma, whom I actually call “Beeba,” a name I made up when I was really little because I don’t think she looks like an old Grandma.
  • 5. When my mom named me Everleigh, she thought she was making the name up, as a combination of her middle name, “Leigh,” and a name she liked, “Ever.” Since then, we have met other younger Everleighs!
  • 6. I am an only child and it’s just me and my Mama. I used to think I wanted siblings, but now I tell my mom all the time that I’m glad that I get all of her attention, and also some peace and quiet!
  • 7. I’m part Scottish, English, Austrian, Norwegian, German, Swedish and Irish. I have also discovered that I’m related to lots of interesting people from the past and present, including Benjamin Franklin, Amy Poehler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lucille Ball, William H. Macy, Amy Adams, President McKinley, Queen Elizabeth, and even some of the people accused of witchcraft in the Salem Witch Trials.
  • 8. The first concert I went to was Sabrina Carpenter when I was 7, and it was one of the best nights of my life because I got to meet her for the first time. I think Sabrina is so talented and beautiful.
  • 9. When I was a toddler, I thought that everyone had their own invisible magical elephant, and I could tell you what color and pattern yours was. Mine was red with spots and it told me things that most toddlers wouldn’t know.
  • 10. When I grow up, I want to be a director, singer, and also continue acting. When I was in preschool, I wanted to be a butterfly catcher, rock star and a flipper (gymnastics).
