No seriously you guys, this is me. Veronica is my dream role and I’m thrilled that I got to play her even for three minutes. The beginning of the video (our performance included the scene before the song) got cut off, but most of it is here! I thought you guys might be able to appreciate it <3
We got our second round of scenes for Intermediate Acting and that is the American Realism unit, meaning Tennessee Williams is one of the playwrights, and Tennessee Williams wrote “The Glass Menagerie,” aka my favorite play/one of my Special Interests, and the play my dream role, Laura Wingfield, a character I’m almost certain is autistic, is from.
I don’t know if any of you are religious or spiritual, but because of this, I KNOW God must exist. In case it’s not apparent, for this round of scenes, I will be playing Laura Wingfield in a scene from “The Glass Menagerie” by Tennessee Williams.

- She’s halfway through working on a new film (found it on imdb here: Too Late) She mentioned working with John Hawkes and when asked what was her favourite work she’d done in the past other than teen wolf, she said she thought this project was her favourite. There are lots of long, 20-minute, one take scenes that she really enjoys doing. Also, she plays a stripper.
- She would have liked to work more with Dylan (because he is fun to work with and talented). She also would have liked to work more with Posey so that Allison and Scott could properly get back to being better friends.
- They filmed her being dead, before filming her actual death scene, and she obviously had to hold her breath during filming. But she couldn’t stop crying during the takes at first.
- Said that Allison’s death will help Scott’s character
- She would have liked Allison to end up as a CIA or FBI agent
- She would like to be in a Romantic Comedy. She said even though they’re not highly acclaimed, she thought it would be nice to smile for a change, since Allison was never really a comedic character.
- She likes vegemite, had tried it three years ago.
- Doesn’t eat meat, but eats fish.
- Even if it would be fun, she wouldn’t want to come back to the show to do any dream/flashback/zombie sequences, because she wouldn’t want that to diminish Allison’s character/take away from her exit.
- Her dream theatre roles would be Hamlet, or Cleopatra from Cleopatra and Antony (both Shakespeare)
I can’t think of anything else that was new, she spoke about Allison’s death a bit and how she organically was wanting to say ‘i love you, i love you’ over and over. (And how the producer came over and said, you’re not meant to say that, and she was just like ’…oh’ - while she was lying there covered in blood and crying).
Will it be possible to meet you when you come to Florida for Disney World?! I would TOTALLY use one of my last tickets to meet you. I studied you on YouTube for my Eponine audition @ a local theatre, I nailed my dream role, and had the time of my LIFE!!! I'm sad I could never ever have the opportunity to hear you sing as Eponine, but I'm such a HUGE fan and it would be the biggest dream to meet you!!! Would it be possible?!?!
Unfortunately, Pete and I aren’t doing any meet ups whilst we’re in Florida! We’ve both just finish long stints in quite demanding jobs and we’re headed to Disney to retreat from the world and have a romantic getaway together! I’m sure there will be other opportunities for you and I to meet! Very sorry and congratulations of nailing your dream role!!! <3
