You were just cast as Erin in the TV series Nashville. How has that experience been?

The experience has been more than I could ever imagine. It’s such a welcoming set and everyone is filled with great energy. I’m having a blast! 

Before landing this role, you were already in several other shows and films. Growing up, were you always into acting?

I was introduced to the craft at a young age. Being in front of the camera was always a thrill for just felt right. As a child actor, my favorite show that I worked on was Gilmore Girls. The show is so unbelievably funny, I was always laughing

What’s your dream role? And, on the other hand, is there a role that you won’t ever do?

My dream role would be similar to a part in Resident Evil, a big, strong female lead. I don’t think there would be anything I wouldn’t want to try. It’s not in my personality to not accept a challenge. 

What do you do to unwind?

I do a lot of yoga or I listen to my record player.

Who inspires you to do what you do?

The challenge is what inspires me—it’s what keeps my heart happy and satisfied.

Lastly, what’s your advice to young women about reaching for their dreams?

You can do anything you put your mind to, just know it takes strength. Search deep in your heart and you will find it.
