I had a gothic phase, and now I’m more edgy chic.

Film is where I want to head towards, and every year I try. I’d love to do independent films; I think there is more freedom and more of a challenge. Because, on the show, I’ve played the same character for five years, any chance I get to play someone completely different from who I am or what I’ve played before, I’d like to jump on that.

Everything I do is unfabulous. I’m the most normal person. I love walking everywhere and going to hole-in-the-wall places, like nail shops, because they do the best job. And I go to vintage stores rather than high-end boutiques, because I like to dress different from other people.

I've seen a lot of people - for example, Lindsay Lohan - who got into the wrong crowd. I always have my eye on what I want. And I don't want anything to distract me from that.

My first celeb crush was Hanson. I loved all three of them. My sister and I would always fight, and whenever they would come on the TV, we would always give them a kiss on the TV. And I also had a crush on Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Every time he would come on the screen, he was like my boyfriend. I was such a nerd like that.
