1When I went to college, it didn't even occur to me that I should be in a sorority at all. I went to school in New York City, where you don't need to be in a sorority to go to a party!
2My dad has an incredible passion for living life, and he's really, really funny, so he definitely encourages me to enjoy all aspects of life. He's very proud of me and definitely encourages my career path, and we have a good time talking about work.
3Netflix has such a knack for giving a new life to those B-movies that you thought and hoped no one would ever see. Especially when you have a new project coming out and they're looking to mine some of your lesser-known films.
4I loved The O.C. (2003) and I totally watch Gossip Girl (2007), too!
5If you're not adventurous,, you're not really living, I think... especially in college.
6I always thought that sororities were just made up of cheerleaders from high school. And I kind of picked on those cheerleaders!
7I once went to a fraternity house when I was in high school... you know, you would rent them during the summer for really cheap, and students are in there. So I met some people who rented a room. I just remember it being very dirty.
8I love pushing my boundaries and seeing how far I can go without, you know, dying or injuring myself too badly.
9Everyone has their thing, and I was the weird, artsy kid.
10Greek (2007) is basically a show about sororities and fraternities. It follows "Casey Cartwright", played by me, her younger brother, and all the people that are involved in their lives from the different fraternities.
11I think Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) is a really good example of a female lead I'd like to emulate. She's really been able to captivate men and women in a way that's appealing, which is a tough line to follow.
12People are always going to assume I got my roles because of my father. There's not much I can do about that. He and I talk about the business sometimes, but he's my dad.
13I think Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) is a really good example of a female lead I'd like to emulate.
14I love pushing my boundaries and seeing how far I can go without, you know, dying or injuring myself too badly. On set I was like, 'Give me some stunts! Give me whatever you want. Throw it at me. I want to do it all.'
15I've been learning how to shoot a gun and properly handcuff people so that on the day I need to pull someone down to the ground, it looks and feels natural for me.
16I want to pay my mortgage and go on vacation, so I love working. I want to be able to do independent projects as well, and being on a successful TV show allows you to do some other things.
