We did a remake of Lost in Space. Filmed it in London for four months.
I always wanted to entertain. When I was little, I would sing in front of the mirror with a hairbrush or my sisters and I would make shows. I always wanted to be on TV.
I need to decide whether to apply for college or delay it for a couple of years while I pursue some more acting projects. Right now I’m trying to sort things out, so I can make the right choices.
Do what you’re passionate about.
The only way I can be there and really get into the character is if I’m her.
I don’t want to be a ‘teen star’ because so many people don’t ever grow out of that.
I loved school. But when I started ‘Party of Five’ in the fifth grade, I was taken out of school and tutored on the set.
I had to have my first kiss in front of, like, a hundred people. I didn’t know what to do. So my sisters told me to, like, practice on a pillow, you know? But it didn’t kiss me back so I didn’t know what to expect.
When I was growing up I always wanted to be a waitress. My sister opened a restaurant in Mississippi, and I went down there and was a waitress for a few days. Let me tell you, I got it out of my system.
I like shopping, and I like to drive.
I like to take pictures of lots of things: people-such as my nephews, my dogs, and just interesting objects that I see. For instance, I might take a picture of flowers by the side of the road, an old sign or a fence.
My family has always called me ‘Lay Lay,’ and my dad used to always call me ‘Dynamite Termite’ because I was really short and small and I hated to be still. I would never stop.
It’s more fun if you can control things like lighting and make special effects in the darkroom.
