You play Sue, a hopelessly optimistic teenager. Are you anything like her?
In some regards. I haven’t decided if Sue’s actually oblivious or just tries to focus on the positive, which is more what I do. It’s so much harder being a grump than being happy.
You’ve been acting since age 8. Was it hard staying grounded?
I don’t have the energy to get caught up in it all. I just turned 22, and it’s like, “Whoa, I’m a real, contributing member of society now.”
You’re the middle child onscreen and in real life.
Yeah. Growing up, I always got stuck with the middle humped seat in my parents’ station wagon.
