Check out what she revealed below…

  • 1. I am THE BIGGEST Twilight fan. Anyone who knows me knows that loving Twilight is my defining personality trait. I even have 2 tattoos dedicated to Twilight and went on a trip to Oregon and Washington just to see all of the filming locations!!
  • 2. I am a mother to a golden retriever named Hazel that weighs 125 pounds. She isn’t overweight or anything– she’s just tall and massive.
  • 3. English isn’t my first language! Both my parents are immigrants from Japan so I spent the first 5 to 6 years of my life only speaking Japanese.
  • 4. My first ever job was a Verizon commercial that aired in Asia. I remember we had to film different versions of the commercial in a variety of languages because it was gonna air in so many Asian countries.
  • 5. Before booking Cruel Summer, I was taking classes to become a nurse! I took a bunch of science classes and I was on track to start nursing school in the following semester. I had a 4.0 GPA and even made the dean’s list!
  • 6. My favorite artist is Billie Eilish. I’ve seen her twice in concert. The first time I saw her live was at a small venue before she was super famous. The second time I saw her live was at the Forum and my friend and I were able to see her front row!
  • 7. My 7th fun fact is that my angel number is 777! I really want to get 777 tattooed but my mom says that I should take a break from getting more tattoos…
  • 8. Speaking of tattoos– I currently have 7 tattoos but I might have more by the time this article releases… Sorry mom!
  • 9. I was a varsity cheerleader in high school but got bumped down to junior varsity after missing so many cheer practices in order to go to all of my auditions. Whatever. It was worth it.
  • 10. I grind my teeth like crazy when I sleep. My friends hate me for this but I hate putting my night guard in so y’all are just gonna have to deal with it. Oops.
