You’re probably best known for playing high schoolers, but on David E. Kelly’s new show, Harry’s Law, you play a wacky legal secretary. How does it feel to be all grown up?
Well, I’m excited for people to realize that I’m 25 years old and not a teenager anymore...even though I still look 18 and can’t get into a bar to save my life!
How would you describe your character?
She is definitely what some guys would call the “crazy” girl, but she has a lot of layers.
On the outside she’s quirky and ditzy and materialistic, but underneath she’s like a savant who knows a lot about the law.
Is that anything like you?
No, I think that’s a big misconception about me. I tend to play more bubbly than I actually am. I was never the popular girl. I’m really shy. I’m really just a nerd.
Are you single?
I’m so single. It’s funny. I’m usually a relationship girl. I love being in love and having a partner in crime. But it’s good to be your own partner in crime. God, that makes me sound like I have multiple-personality disorder.
So what do you do for fun?
Music is a huge part of my life. I get to do a little singing on the show, but it’s not like I want to be a pop star. I can’t pull off that sexy pop singer face. It’s too much for me.
You look pretty sexy in these photos.
It’s funny, because I’ve never done anything like this before, so the whole experience was a big step for me. But it was cool. I felt really comfortable and had a great time.
Do you think of yourself as a sex symbol now?
Oh, hell no! It’s weird. I’ve read in magazines where someone like Jessica Alba says, “I’m not a sex symbol. I don’t even think I’m sexy!” I’m like, Oh, my God, girl, you’re kidding. I mean I hate to sound like the stereotypical actress, but if I’m gonna be honest…I really don’t think I am. But it’s nice when other people think so!
