Interview by Ashira Provost @_ashiraprovost
1.You star as Prudence in the new Nickelodeon series, Knight Squad. Can you tell us a little bit about the show and your character?
Knight Squad is about a group of teenagers training to become knights who protect the magical Kingdom of Astoria. I play Prudence, who is a quarter giant on her mothers side, which gives her giant strength. Prudence also has a giant heart and always tries to protect her friends. If any of them have a problem, she tries to fix it and truly wants what's best for them.
2.Do you share any similarities with Prudence in real life?
I definitely share similarities with Prudence! We are both loyal to our friends and family and are very determined. We also never miss the opportunity for a snack!
3.What was it like working on the show and do you have a favorite memory from the film?
It was really exciting working on the show. I was thankful to learn so many new things and have some cool stunts, including getting to work with a hammer. My favorite memory is a really heartfelt scene Prudence has with Ciara. This episode hasn't aired yet but I can't wait for everyone to see it!
4.Who are your biggest supporters?
I know it may sound cliché, but, my parents. They truly support me in everything I do and always encourage me to be my best. They've sacrificed a lot for me to live out my dream and I'm forever grateful.
5.What kind of music do you like?
I really like everything, my preference depends on my mood. My top favorites are anything classic rock or reggae but I also enjoy a good 2000's pop playlist!
6.Who is your inspiration?
Different people inspire me every day. I like to find new people or experiences that inspire new thoughts.
7.What do you do in your free time?
I enjoy being outside. I take any chance I can get to go to the beach or horseback riding. I also love going on family walks with our rescue pups. However, I can also be tempted by a movie marathon as long as there is popcorn!
8.What is your beauty secret?
Strangely enough, organic avocado oil. I tend to have really dry skin, so every night before I go to bed I wash my face with a mild organic soap and finish off with organic avocado oil. However, I must warn you avocado oil has been known to ruin some pillowcases!
9.Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully, to continue doing what I love and possibly being the creator of my own show. I really just want to be able to create projects that tell important stories and make people truly feel.
10.What do you love the most about acting?
The ability to express my own emotions with the opportunity to bring someone else's story to life.
