What's your guilty pleasure song?
Into You, Ariana Grande.
Who is your favorite Harry Potter character and why?
Professor McGonagall. Because she’s a badass bit**.
Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?
Making meals out of whatever dregs are left in the fridge and making them taste legitimately good.
What was your first job?
My first real job was driving golf carts on my campus for kids who had sprained ankles or mono or whatever it was that stopped them from getting across a giant campus.
What website do you spend the most time on, and why?
Umm… hm. www.nytimes.com? Because I’m a nerd and I like knowing what’s going on in the world? Although after the election I stopped reading the news as much because it made me depressed...
How do you relax? What's your favorite self-care method?
Spend time with friends! Snuggling. Going to the Korean spa.
What's your #1 romantic comedy movie?
Hahaha uhhhh Before Sunrise.
What's the best part of your day and why?
After dinner, around 8 or 9, because I alway get another pulse of energy, and that’s a time I either have rehearsal or sit down to write or I get to sit with my humans and be together with them.
Favorite place to travel?
I can’t say; there’s too many I haven’t been too yet. I’ve been to Ireland a few times because I’m Irish. And to Tuscany. Actually maybe Tuscany. I love the pace of life and the hot sun and the water and homemade egg noodles and imagining myself on a scooter for the rest of forever.
Last time you laughed?
I was packing and I said to my friend, "Should I take my suitcase to Cologne?" and he said, "Just put some cologne in your suitcase, same thing." It was so stupid and lovely.
