I am just a regular kid who love to dance and ski, and I am very lucky to be able to act. Working in entertainment is a lot of fun, and you can meet so many amazing people and become different characters that aren't like yourself. There are so many different kinds of experiences that you wouldn't get if you were not in the Entertainment industry.
I was in Season 5 of The Flash as the younger version of the season villain, Grace Gibbons. In Deadpool 2, I played Cable's daughter Hope Summers. For The Flash, I was in the entire season and it was just a really great experience. The cast and crew were super nice to me and we had a great time. For Deadpool 2, it was really cool to work on a super big show where they kept the script in a safe. The character of Hope Summers is actually very important but unfortunately they only touched on her briefly in Deadpool 2.
Since the pandemic, my teachers usually put my school work online so it's not that bad if I miss a day here and there. With dance, my studio director is very supportive of my acting career. This year, most of my classes are later in the evening and so I haven't had to miss very many. Despite the pandemic, I have connected with other actors through social media. I have done an online awards show, I have another coming up early November and of course the Young Artist Academy™ Awards this month (can't wait!).
Acting Tip: My mom sometimes says "Acting is like reacting." Most of the time you are acting with another person, and you can just react off of their lines.
