What is your best-kept beauty secret?
WATER! Lots and lots of water! It’s incredible and it’s free, lol. Also, my all-time favorite beauty product is Sensi Wash by Sonya Dakar. I have very sensitive skin and the lavender and oatmeal in the face wash are amazing!
How did you stay busy during the lockdown at home?
I took a lot of Zoom classes. Everything from acting stuff to ballet, to yoga...I love a good class and it really helped pass the time.
What or who inspires you?
Dreams, like the kind of dreams that people work towards in their life. Seeing people reaching for bigger and better things, not putting limits on what they can achieve is inspiring.
Who is your favorite actress or singer to date?
Emma Stone hands down! I love her. She’s so believable and can play so many kinds of characters. She’s a great role model!
How old were you when you started acting? Do you have any other hidden talents?
I started acting when I was 7 years old. I knew from my very first experience on set that I wanted to do it forever.
My hidden talent would have to be making short films. I love writing a script and then bringing it to life. I’m always dragging my family around scouting different locations and making them act out scenes for my movies. It’s so fun!
Do you have any behind the scene stories from being on the set of HBO Max's original series The Flight Attendant?
I think one of my favorite BTS moments was shooting the winter scenes. The set was transformed with fake snow. I really loved seeing how the crew made that happen. It was warm outside but snowing at the same time. It was really cool.
Tell us about your role as Young Cassie?
I play young Cassie when she’s around 10 years old. She grows up in a traditional household in the sense that she has a mom, dad, and a brother who all share a home. But she doesn’t have a normal upbringing. Her relationships with her family, and her father, in particular, are pretty dysfunctional. It was a very dark role which was really fun to play.
Do you have a dream role?
I do! I really want to play a lead character in a film that is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Oscars)...just putting that out into the universe, lol.
What's a typical day like in your life?
I usually start my day with homeschool, then I like to get some exercise. I live in NYC so I'll take my dogs for a walk in Central Park. I’m also studying ballet, so I work on my stretches and positions for a bit too. Then if I have an audition I’ll prepare for that as well. My typical day isn’t too crazy, I’m a pretty normal kid.
How can fans reach out to you via social media?
I don’t use a lot of social media but I do have Instagram which is parent run. It’s to promote my acting and upcoming projects.
