Tell us about The InnKeepers.
It's about two nerdy innkeepers who try to find proof that ghosts exist before the inn goes out of business.

Do you believe in ghosts?
I don’t necessarily not believe in ghosts, but I’ve never seen a ghost.  A ghost has never jumped out and been like, “Hey, how’s it going?”

What can you tell us about your character Claire?
Claire works at the front desk at the InnKeeper Place.  She’s a dork and is having a bit of a crisis about her purpose in life.  We’ve all been there. “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing with my life? Is this good enough? Should I go back to school?” She’s in this dead end job and suddenly ghost stuff happens.

If you weren’t an actress what would you be doing?
I really wanted to be a veterinarian.  I was going to school for that.  Now I kind of think that maybe I’d be a make-up artist or something.  I’d do something involved in the movie-making business.

What's your signature drink? 
I’m a tequila girl and people know it, at least my friends do. I don't like vodka-- it tastes weird and makes me do funny things. But tequila is relazing and I feel fine when I wake up the next morning after a night of drinking it.

What’s  your guilty pleasure?
I can’t stop watching Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives. Normally I’m not like a big TV person.   I never use my DVR .  But my little cousin came to live with me for a few months over the summer and she would put all this shit on my DVR.  Before then, I was thinking, "Oh, what’s this crap on my TV?" and now I can’t stop watching.  And any junk food.  I just can’t stop eating at all.

What’s your favorite junk food?
Burgers and anything salty like that. Anything salty with meat.

Do you like funny guys or serious guys?
Funny guys.  It’s so boring when you‘re on a date, and they’re laughing and I’m like "I wanna laugh, say something funny.  Do something. You’re not interesting."

Name three things you couldn’t live without.
I can’t live without my iPhone.  I guess I can’t live without Netflix because I would have nothing to do. All I do is sit home and watch movies.  And I guess I can’t live without Balls-- my dog’s name is Balls. Can’t live without Balls.

The Innkeepers hits theatres today.
