“I think everything happens for a reason.”
“I am beyond excited to be working with the BBC as part of the cast of ‘Thirteen.'”
“A movie that makes me cry every time is ‘Billy Elliot.’ That scene where he’s dancing in the hall, and his dad walks in. And the first time his dad can see how amazing he is dancing, but he’s so conflicted with kind of his own feelings towards it. Oh, it’s so emotional.”
