Did you ever watch GH while growing up?
“I never watched soaps before, but then I did get into GENERAL HOSPITAL around the time that Jonathan Jackson [ex-Lucky] was on. I really liked him. And Maurice [Benard, Sonny] was my favorite. I was really excited to work with him, and then when I found out that I was going to be playing [Sonny’s] sister, that was really cool.”

Which meal reminds you of childhood?
“I guess Rice Krispies treats. My mom always used to make them.”

Who would you love to meet?
“I would love to meet Robert De Niro because he’s one of my favorite actors. He’s just it.”

What have you learned since getting this job?
“That’s a good question. I’ve definitely learned how to be more responsible. I take things a lot more seriously now, and I think I’ve matured a little.”

What word do you find yourself saying all the time?
“It’s kind of embarrassing, but I probably say ‘dude’ a lot [laughs], especially coming where I come from with my boyfriend and all his friends and my brother – everybody surfs. So, it’s always ‘dude’ this and ‘dude’ that.”
