1. Youâ€™re at a magazine rack and can only pick three titles. Which ones do you choose?
Vanity Fair, Elle Decor and Modern Bride â€” Iâ€™m kind of obsessed with wedding magazines.
2. If your TV only carried three networks, which three would you have to have?
OK, well, USA â€” duh. AMC because Iâ€™m in love with Breaking Bad, and any channel that airs Friends reruns.
3. Whatâ€™s been your strangest fan encounter to date?
My first one still remains my strangest one. My first job in high school was on One Life to Live. I lived in Memphis and flew back and forth to NYC on days I shot the show. The first time I rode the subway by myself, some woman shoved me and said, â€śHow dare you steal Cristian away from Jessica!â€ť As I ran out of the subway, I had two thoughts: 1) â€śHoly crap, there really are crazies out there that canâ€™t tell the difference between an actor playing a role and a character on TV,â€ť and 2) â€śOh my goodness, I think this might mean Iâ€™m doing a really convincing job! Maybe I should stick with this acting thing!â€ť
4. Whenâ€™s the last time you were starstruck?
I got to meet Ralph Macchio at an event this year and almost peed my pants. I seriously lost it â€” I couldnâ€™t speak. The Karate Kid [the original] was the only PG movie I was allowed to watch as a little girl because my parents thought it had a good message, so Iâ€™ve seen it about 300 times. Thatâ€™s not an exaggeration. Never underestimate the power of a 5-year-old girlâ€™s first crush.
5. What are three things you have to have in your fridge or pantry?
Nutella, mayonnaise â€¦ and beer.
6. What bores you?
Not working. I go bananas when Iâ€™m not working. I have a really strong work ethic and I love staying busy, so if Iâ€™m on hiatus from the TV show Iâ€™m always shooting a movie, or working on an album â€” I sing â€” or reading a play. Anything creative. I donâ€™t like sitting still!
7. What movie can you watch again and again and never get tired of?
Well thatâ€™s easy. The Karate Kid, of course!
