I don't know money, for instance I don't know the difference between $1 or $1000. I have no concept of that. "80k, I don't know what that means"
My dad was so much fun growing up.
I'm not a stand up at all, it's such a fear of mine. My sister does it, and she's really great at it.
There are some different things I'm writing and developing, but I don't know where they'll go. They're fun stuff that I would be in and are written in my voice, for me.
I never really wanted to write and wanted to focus on acting.
I'm young but I'm not stupid.
I think you have to create your own stuff so I'm working on stuff for myself right now.
