Tell us about how you got your start in the industry.
You’re an avid theatre lover and no stranger to the stage! What are some of the productions you previously starred in?
You’re reprising your role of “Willow” in Season 2 of HBO Max’s hit show, “The Sex Lives of College Girls.” Talk to us about this experience.
Honestly, Season 1 was crazy! I was trying not to freak out the whole time- I didn’t really relax until Season 2. This time around was really fun and I was more comfortable around the camera. I love my cast, and we’re all really good friends! It’s actually cool to work with people that you actually enjoy, and it helps to have that chemistry on camera.
What do you love most about your character, Willow
I feel like Willow was everything I wanted to be in college. I love that Willow is bold, fun, and unapologetically herself. She’s always authentically herself- it doesn’t matter who she’s around, or where she is, she always says what she wants! She’s gonna take names and receipts!—-that’s what Willow is going to do!
What’s next for you- have you set any future career goals you’re currently working towards?
I can hint at doing something that is more dramatic and grounded. It’s a good challenge for me as an actress. I’m excited to play someone a little bit older who’s going through hard times. Willow is really fun but I’m looking for the opposite right now to balance that out and I’m excited to share that with everyone!
