How have you dealt with the fame that comes from starring in a hit TV show?
AnnaSophia: Thankfully, I’m a little removed from it because I’m working all the time so I don’t really see the hustle and bustle, but there have been perks. The best perk has been getting invited to movie screenings.
What is it like walking the red carpet?
AnnaSophia: That’s a tough one, usually I’m so overwhelmed by all the people and flashing lights I forget what occurs on the red carpet. It’s nice running into people you know… then the whole press thing feels more personal.
What made you want to start acting?
AnnaSophia: I saw people on TV. I saw kids on TV, and I really wanted to act. And I loved performing in front of people. And I love being in front of people. I like seeing people so that is kind of what made me want to do it.
Which actresses do you admire?
AnnaSophia: I really like Natalie Portman. She went to college, and she’s still in the film industry, making good choices in her career. And I think Hilary Swank and Charlize Theron… they’re both two actresses that I’ve worked with and that I admire for how good they are, what they do, how grounded they are, how kind they are to everyone, and they treat everybody the same.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
AnnaSophia: I want to go to college. I want to have other options. But, as I get more and more involved with film-making, I just grow to love it more and more. There are just so many different avenues, and I hope I can keep on acting. I have been very blessed, and I have been very fortunate, and my family has been so supportive, but I think, in the end, I’ll end up producing and acting. That’s what I think I am going to do.
What advice do you have for tween/teen girls?
AnnaSophia: Perfection is impossible. Trying to do your best is important, but loving yourself and loving others should come first.
