Asia, I watched videos of you dancing and I have to say 'you're amazing!". How did you discover your talent in dancing or performing?
I fell in love with dancing a little before turning 2 years old. I felt so happy and natural when I was performing, I think I was just blessed with the confidence it takes to be on a stage!
So you are 10 years old but I feel like you have seen and done more than most young Hollywood actors. What has been your most rewarding experience so far?Thank you, I have been blessed early on with opportunities in dance and acting. I'm so grateful to have a supportive family and team around me for guidance. I never really realized all the things that I have done until I sit down for an interview and they run down everything from 5 years old to now. Currently, the most rewarding experience is being cast in Ryan Murphy’s new show. I say this because crossing over from a dancer and singer to an actress hasn't been easy, but I have worked hard and make it a point to put in the time with my acting coach. I also go to many auditions and I continue to learn and get better. I understand that it's not easy.
I play Sydney Simpson, OJ Simpson’s daughter. Cuba Gooding Jr. plays OJ. When I went out for the audition I booked it without even a callback! That was the best feeling, and such a rewarding experience, because I worked to have the best audition knowing I was up against girls that solely act. It was an exciting moment for me.
My dad is African American and my mom is Filipino mix.
Who is your Hollywood crush? Ummm...right now, I don't know.
Whats Next?I think I'm done with the whole reality drama. I love where I'm at right now and I am excited about my acting and singing journey.What is your favorite color? What is your personal style?Favorite color ~ pink, black, and gold.Style~ sporty, fun and classic.
