Tell us a little bit about yourself – Where do you live? What are some of your hobbies and interests?
For the past few months, home has been Toronto, where I’ve been filming Heroes: Reborn, but I’m based out of LA. I’m a huge book nerd, a bit of a cinephile, and a concert junkie. I love to cook and bake vegan things and though I have an awful voice, karaoke may be my favourite pastime – anyone who’s ever spent any amount of time with me will find this out very quickly; I’ll inevitably drag them out to do it.
What made you want to become an actress?
Watching movies. I was very much a hermit growing up, and I’d spend most days at home after school either reading or watching films. Both of the mediums taught me an incredible amount about people and humanity, and provided me with a kind of comfort and sense of belonging. This eventually developed into a desire to provide that same kind of feeling for others.
Tell us about Heroes Reborn – who is your character? What was it like joining a cast that contains both a mix of characters from the original show, as well as newcomers like yourself?
I can’t say anything about my character – you’re going to have to wait till the premiere tonight to find out! The show has been absolutely amazing to work on. My first time going for a wardrobe fitting, I ran into Jack (Coleman, who plays HRG from the original series). We talked a bit, exchanged numbers, and he invited me to dinner that night with him and a couple of the other cast members. Over four months have passed since that initial dinner, and the cast of the show have become like my family – there’s absolutely no hierarchy, no difference between the old and new cast, and it all started with how welcoming and inclusive Jack was that very first time I met him.
Can you give us a hint about what we can expect from Heroes: Reborn this season?
What to expect? The unexpected.
Tell us about some of your favourite spots for: Shopping/Nightlife/Arts&Culture/Eating/Spa, etc.
Since I’m in Toronto, I love tiny concert venues like Horseshoe Tavern and Parts & Labour. The best shopping is hands down along Queen Street West, where you can find pieces by local designers that you won’t be able to find anywhere else, as well as a bunch of second hand consignment stores. I spend more time in Kensington Market than I’d like to admit – from Hibiscus to Urban Herbivore to Bunner’s, there are so many good vegan places!
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m not a fan of sticking to one specific style; one day I might put on a metallic miniskirt with a band t-shirt, and the next I’ll throw on a blazer with striped pants. My style in one word is “eclectic”.
What are your beauty staples?
Moisturizer, sunscreen and perfume.
What books are on your bedside table?
What is an indulgence you would never forgo?
What is last thing you bought and loved?
Black and white oxford-style shoes from the Browns’ Wishbone Collection (confession: I’m a shoe-aholic).
If you could travel back in time (or to the future) and attend a famous wedding, whose would it be?
David Bowie and Iman’s.
