Give us your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.
What inspired you to become an actress?
In high school, I took my first theatre class and I played a witch in this Scottish play. I think it started with theatre and I grew to love theatre.
How do you spend your off days, when you’re not working?
I have a rescue dog, Charlie. I spend time with him. I love going to the gym, hiking… I do a lot with my spare time.
What is the most difficult part of your job?
I think the most difficult part is a lot of live material, getting used to working on films, getting used to grafting a lot of material and memorise it and prepare it and be ready to go.
What techniques do you use to memorise your dialogue?
For me I have a visual memory, sometimes I like to write out my script, saying it out loud, having a partner. Sometimes we will FaceTime and run lines together.
How did the cast of General Hospital treat you on the first day on set?
They are amazing, really like a family. Very helpful. Supportive.
If you were best friends with Valerie Spencer, where would you hang out and what would you do?
I would take Valerie everywhere, Valerie has been taking care of her mother and I don’t think she has had time to go out and do normal things for her age. We would go to the beach together. We would go on a hike.
Questions from the Fans
Morgan: Do you get to keep the clothes from the wardrobe?
We have an option to purchase [the clothes at a discounted price].
Jenna: What would Valerie’s favourite song be?
I think Valerie’s song would be… I think she totally loves Earth wind and Fire.
Is there anything you would like to say to an inspiring actress?
You must just keep going, it’s really easy to get put down, especially in this industry, and there is a lot of rules, a lot of different choices. Stay true to yourself, know that if it is something you want the universe will give it to you. Never be scared or doubt what your future will hold.
