  1. What was your reaction when you found out you landed the role?
    • I thought it was awesome! I landed a role and didn’t even have to audition for it! I was hired off of a demo reel.
  1. What is the movie about?
    • There is a new principal that comes into a high school and cancels a school dance after finding out the state test scores are really bad.

    • He’s the principal’s pet that always wants to ruin the fun of the other students in the school.
  1. What was a typical day like on-set?
    • I went straight to the wardrobe area where I dressed and got my hair and makeup done.
    • Then, we had school time with a set teacher that had us do school work when we weren’t filming. It’s mandatory to have three hours of school work a day.

    • Yes! We had a lot of down time especially on the weekends when we would play card games and I would show people how to solve my Rubik’s Cube.
  1. What is a fun fact that most fans wouldn’t know about the movie or the filming process?
    • There is only one camera but there were several people that had a job that helped the cameraman get the film they needed for the movie.
  1. When did you first realize that you were building a large following across your social media platforms? Was there a specific post that received a lot of attention?
    • I started noticing a larger following when Brat posted a picture that they were making a “Chicken Girls” movie. They mentioned me in the picture caption.

  1. Are you currently working on any other projects you’d like your fans to know about?
    • I just finished a feature horror film called “Black Pumpkin” that should be out this fall.
    • I will be filming a web series this fall called “NC 16”. It’s a comedy about kids entering high school and how the decisions they make now can affect the next four years. I’ll be playing the character Nelson.
