5. If you see her IRL, you’ll want to stop and chat with her. “Meeting fans and hearing about how certain characters and projects affected them is what my job is all about,” she gushes.

6. You can never go wrong with a classic cheese pizza in her book, but she also gets jalapeños on the side for a little extra kick.

7. One of her favorite movie characters of all time is Penny Lane from Almost Famous. She finds her super inspiring.

8. She’s an expert thrifter and says it “feels like treasure hunting.” She is always on the lookout for vintage gems to complement her already strong style game.
