1. What made you want to be an actress?

You know, I wish I could say I had that moment in life
which so many actors talk about…the moment where
they went to see a play and were so moved by the whole
experience. But I don’t. I was in my first year of college
and extremely confused about what to do with my life. I had
a conversation with my dad and I’ll never forget what he
told me, he said, “do what you’d do if everyday was
Saturday”. I replied with some typical teenage angst
comment to the likes of “well, if everyday was Saturday I’d
be an actress but I can’t because I’m TOO OLD!” Thank God
he laughed at me and told me to go for it because it’s the
most amazing job in the world.

2. Who were your idols growing up?

Growing up I thought Madonna hung the moon. To me she
represented strength – in every sense of the word. I also
thought being friends with Adam Sandler would rule. In
fact, I still do. :o)

3. Would you go overseas for a role in a film?

Are you kidding? Of course I’d go overseas to do a film!
Traveling the world is one of coolest parts of the
job.

4. What was it like working on Harold & Kumar Goes
To White Castle?

Working on Harold and Kumar was amazing! Everyone involved
had such a good sense of humor so you’d literally go to
work and laugh all day! John Cho and Kal Penn are two of
the nicest guys I’ve ever met.

5. If you could work with any body who would it
be?

If I could work with anybody, it’d be Tom Cruise. Not
because he’s “Tom Cruise The Movie Star” but because of
whom he is as a person. I know so many people who have
worked with him and everyone raves about his character. I
think he’s one of the few people in the world who allows
himself to shine and be truly happy. On top of that, he’s
gracious to everyone around him and always remains thankful
for his blessings. I think that’s extremely
important.

6. What have been some of your favorite roles to
play?

I love playing roles where the character is a little
offbeat. There’s more room to move as an actor when the
character isn’t completely “normal”. My favorite role was
in a MTV movie called Everybody’s Doing It, where I played
an overzealous, apple-polishing, high school virgin who
would do ANYTHING to get ahead. She was the kind of person
that rubbed everyone the wrong way but didn’t seem to
care…or notice. I also love playing the Legally
Blonde-esque character in my cartoon series, 6TEEN.

7. What are some of your favourite movies?

My favorite movies span a wide range. I like White Oleander
as much as I like Dumb and Dumber and Schindler’s List as
much as I like Dirty Dancing. I don’t care what anyone
says, Patrick Swayze is a God. :o)

8. What movies you have seen lately you have really
enjoyed?

I recently saw In Good Company at a dinner theatre
restaurant in Los Angles and loved everything about it –
the acting, the writing, the directing – it was really well
done.

9. Who have you enjoyed working with?

I’ve been really fortunate and have always ended up working
with people I like. Nicole Parker, Jay Mohr, John Cho, Kal
Penn, Leila Arcieri, Bret Harrison, Katy Mixon, Charlotte
Sullivan, Steve Braun, Eugene Lipinski…the list goes
on. Just about every job I’ve ever had, I end up walking
away with at least one really close friend.

10. What kinda role would you most like to
play?

If I could play anything, I’d want to play a Rock Star! I’m
the worst singer on the face of the earth so it’s the
closest I’ll ever get to being a rock star. It would be a
huge bummer to die without knowing what it would be like,
don’t you think?

11. What are your thoughts on studio remaking
movies?

I’ve never had much of an opinion on studio remaking
movies. Many people say that a re-make never measures up to
the original (which is often true) but on the other hand,
there are so many movies that would never otherwise be seen
by the new generation if they weren’t remade. Sometimes the
re-make brings newfound awareness to the original so for
that reason, I think they have their place.

12. What are your favourite genre of movies?

I’m a real sucker for romantic comedies. I love watching
the whole “happily ever after” thing…The Wedding
Singer gets me every time!

13. Who have you enjoyed working with the
most?

Katie Mixon!!! Hands down. We played sisters on a WB pilot
called Then Comes Marriage and she instantly felt like
family. She’s one of my favorite people in the world.

14. What were some of your favourite tv shows growing
up?

Oh my God, I liked them all! I had a very serious
television-watching schedule when I was growing up. I was
into The Cosby Show, Family Ties, Growing Pains, Who’s the
Boss, The Wonder Years and practically any other show that
had a mom, a dad, and some funny kids.

15. What your view on realty tv? Good Or Bad?

As an actor, I should be against reality TV but I have to
admit that I enjoy American Idol and a good rose ceremony
much as the next guy. It’s absolutely brainless and totally
detrimental to the mental health of our society but holy
cow, sometimes I just have to know who won.

16. What have you got lined up next?

My next project is something that I’m really excited about.
I’m in the process of creating a T.V show with feature film
writer, Greg Coolidge.

17. What’s in your stereo at the moment?

I actually don’t have anything in my stereo at the moment
because I switched over to a system that wirelessly sends
music from my itunes to my stereo (it’s THE BEST, you
seriously have to try it) however, if I opened my itunes
and pressed “play”, I think Zero 7 would come on.

18. What are some of your favourite music
artists/bands?

This is going to make me sound ridiculous but my favorite
band is Van Halen. My dad is a huge rocker and raised me
Van Halen so hearing it always reminds me of home. So does
Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

19. What do you enjoy doing when not acting?

When I’m not acting, I’m out doing anything and
everything…I take classes, dance, hike, cook, write,
read, make crafts, go on weekend trips…anything to
break it up a bit.

20. What is the Canadian acting scene like?

. I live in Los Angeles now so I haven’t been in the
Canadian acting scene for a while but I’d say the main
difference is the intensity. The Canadian scene is much
smaller, therefore more subdued and less competitive. The
humor in Canada is also a little different…I can’t
quite put my finger on it but it definitely has it’s own
style. We probably have the hosers, Bob and Doug McKenzie,
to thank for that. :o)

Thanks to Brooke for doing the interview. She
rocks
