Last Seen In: Guilty (Netflix)
“I don’t think there was a time where I consciously ‘decided’ to be an actor. I was always acting from the time I was in school and knew it was my passion. I didn’t know if I could do it professionally, but I always knew that this is what I wanted to spend my life doing. If not this, I would have done something in marketing. In fact, I worked in PR for about a year while I was testing for films. When it comes to cinema, I like ‘dark’ films...psychological or investigative thrillers. Shutter Island, Zodiac, and Seven are on top of my list. And the one film that I can’t get out of my head is Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind! I even have a poster of it in my room. When off the camera, I’m super-noisy and fun. I love being around people, cracking jokes, and having a good time. I’m also someone who tries not to take things for granted. Oh, and I cry at the drop of a hat...if I’m sad, obviously, but even if I’m angry or watching a Roadies audition and they’re being mean to someone. Another thing about me: I have the smallest hands and feet in the world!”
