At school, when it came to being social, I had no idea how to do it.

Every day, I just thank the universe that I am as lucky as I am. Because, I went through periods of time when I didn’t have a single bit of work. Months and months where I was auditioning all the time. I mean, all the time, and nothing was happening.

I have a very optimistic view of my future right now. I’m very excited to see where it goes, but I try not to make plans just because I know how unpredictable life can be. Especially the life of an actor, and especially the life of an actor on ‘Glee.’ I just want to be happy and healthy and surrounded by people I love, as cheesy as it sounds.

I love female singer-songwriters!

I was such a wallflower in high school. I did a lot of extracurricular theatre shows, but at school, I spent a lot of time by myself. I ate lunch by myself, and I was always okay with it. But I was definitely made fun of, and I always felt like an outsider.

I’m definitely interested in doing movies. I’ve always focused more on acting than singing because that’s where my true passion lies.

I’m obsessed with Michael Fassbender. He’s unbelievable. I think he’s a modern day Brando. Every movie that he’s done in the past couple years, I just died for him. He’s extremely fascinating.

If I had any advice for my 16-year-old self, it would just be to stay strong, because acting is not an easy lifestyle, especially when you are starting out. That being said, it definitely makes it all worth it when it does happen.

Reading about myself on ‘Perez Hilton’ was kind of the weirdest thing ever.
