Personal Quotes (11)

Auditioning is extremely bizarre. Just being an actor is extremely bizarre, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Auditioning and actually acting on a set are two different things. When you audition, you're in a room and you don't have anything to play with and you don't have anything physically in the room. Whereas on set, you have direction, you have costumes, and you have other actors to work with. It's a completely different thing.
I don't really watch a lot of TV, to be honest. I'm more of a movie girl, or I Netflix stuff.
I learned by watching my favorite shows. I would just rewind and say the words back, until they sounded right to me. I never studied the American accent, in terms of getting a teacher or taking phonetics classes. I've always been a good mimic. It really wasn't that hard for me.
I didn't know what was going to happen with Teen Wolf (2011). I was only scheduled to do four episodes for them, but they kept me on, and I was like, 'Sweet! I'm still employed! That's awesome!' And then, they let me know that they were considering having me for the second half of the season.
I'm still good friends with everybody from Teen Wolf (2011). I still see them, and I go to Jeff Davis' for 'Teen Wolf' night when I can. It was such a rewarding experience. That's such a fun set.
I wouldn't give up my career for somebody. The most important thing to me is my work, and reaching people through my work. It's so important to me. It's my passion.
I love it when you like a character, and then she does something you don't like, and you hate her for a while - then you love her again. I'd like to see her have unlikable moments that the audience understands and sympathizes with.
If my performance touches someone or helps someone understand themselves a little better or gives them a laugh, I feel like I gave them something. I want to touch people's lives and bring them along with me.
I am half Scottish. My father is an expat from Glasgow, and on my mother's side there's a bit of French, a bit of Scottish, a bit of Irish. But the Scottish tartan on my mother's side is Royal Stuart, which is funny since I'm playing Mary Stuart. Theoretically we're related, but not legitimately, unfortunately. Some lord went and knocked up a serving wench or something back in the day!
I was misinformed years ago when I said the tartan was Royal Stuart, but it's actually the Stuart of Bute tartan. They're related, but they're not the same line. It was an error on my part. (laughing) The way I see it is that since they are related, I wasn't entire full of it, but I was...because I didn't do the proper research behind it. It's interesting because I have a friend who's descended from an old King of Scots, Robert the Bruce; it's crazy. All these royal blood lines just pop up in the most interesting places. That's just what happens as the World expands and people colonize. It's remarkable that we can track that genealogy and trace it back to hundreds of years.
