What do you snack on to stay energized on set?
I eat a lot of apples and peanut butter. The other one isn’t super healthy: I dip animal crackers in water. Call it gross but that was my comfort food growing up.
I don’t eat any red meat. I was a vegetarian for about a year, and then I incorporated fish back into my diet. And I eat a little bit of chicken occasionally, for protein, but I eat a lot of vegetables. I’m pretty much vegetarian, aside from when I do eat fish or chicken. And a lot of fruit, I eat pretty healthily. My mom raised me to eat pretty well. I never really got into junk food. But once in
a while I do splurge, though.
What is your fitness regimen?
Well, I used to dance. That’s how I started out in fitness: I was in a dance company. When I moved to New York for the show, I stopped dancing and I hit a point where I was, like, I feel so lazy! So I started going to the gym a bit, and I like it.
I don’t exactly have a specific thing I’m doing yet, but I’m still trying to figure it out, working with a trainer and walking. My most routine workout would be just walking around New York. I try to walk more than I take trains or cabs, but it’s hard in the cold.
What do you wear to the gym? My thing about going to the gym is that I
leave my bracelets on, and I put on my makeup the way I would do it in
real life, and I wear cute clothes, because if I don’t feel good when I
leave the house,
then I’m not motivated to do it. I need to like how I
look while I’m doing it.
What do you hope to achieve in the future? I definitely want to
continue doing what I love. I’m also a musician and singer, and I write
music. That’s a huge passion of mine. Huge, huge! I’m currently working
on an album with my
band, so I would love to do something with that.
