So how much fun was it working on this project?
I bet there was tons of laughs on set. Oh my goodness! The Boss was super fun. There were sooo many laughs, of course! When you are with so many comedic geniuses it is almost impossible not to laugh. I think Kristen had the most trouble of all of us not laughing though!

Did you enjoy working alongside Melissa McCarthy and Kristin Bell? Yes, of course. It was so much fun. They are both so kind and such amazing actors. We had such a fun storyline with the Darnell’s Darlings and as silly as it got, there was also so much heart to the movie. Kristen and I hit it off right away and our mother/daughter bond was very real. She and I were both born in Michigan so we had a Michigan bond as well. Melissa is not only so so funny, but, she is one of the sweetest people I have met in my entire life. She is, of course, is an improv master from her time at the groundlings...I had always wanted to take a class at the Groundling Theater in Los Angeles, but I was not old enough (you have to be 11 and I was 10) and so I got the best groundlings master class ever working with her for 2 months!

Who’s on the top of your list of stars to work with? If you can work with anyone in the world? Oh gosh, that is a hard question. There are so many people I hope to work with someday. To be honest, after I saw the movie Room, I have become obsessed with Brie Larson...I hope I get to work with her one day...and Will Ferrell...yep...Will Ferrell too.
You also play Piper in Nickelodeon’s TV series “Henry Danger”. Is her character much different from your own personality? 100% YES! Piper is a crazy one. She is always yelling and angry and I am pretty much the opposite. Piper yells at her brother Henry a lot and bosses her parents around. I don’t think that would go over too well at my house with my brothers or my parents!

Is there anything that you want fans to know about you that they might not? Fans? That is a weird word I am not used to yet. Not sure how to answer that question. Um...I like to turn the music up as loud as it can go in the car and sing at the top of my lungs with my mom. I think that is fun.
