On her hectic schedule…

"I only had six days off last year. I don’t think people realize how much hard work being in this industry can be; I’m away from the people that I love constantly, I don’t get to spend nearly as much time as I’d like with them, so being in the business is a huge sacrifice. If you love it, you love it, and it becomes your life, and you want it to be your life. I could work 24 hours and I wouldn’t complain once because I’m happiest when I’m working."

Getting in touch with her Latin roots…

"I’m definitely very connected to being a Latina female, especially in this business. My parents got divorced when I was young and my mom is 100 percent Puerto Rican and I have a stepdad too that I live with, but I grew up around my Puerto Rican side of the family so I’m definitely immersed in that culture all the time. Every Friday we have rice and beans and chicken and we eat together and we laugh together, and it’s honestly my favorite day of the week just because I look forward to spending time with them — and of course, the food."

On an upcoming solo album…

"I don't want to rush it - music is something I'm super passionate about, equally passionate as I am with acting. I've been singing since I was three, it's been a part of me my entire life. It's not like, Oh, I'm famous and I'm gonna put out an album. This is a huge deal for me, and I want to be taken seriously as an artist and as a writer, so I'm going to take my time."

Her dream role…

"I would love to work with Cameron Crowe, he's definitely one of my favorite directors. I remember when I first saw Almost Famous it brought me to tears and I was like, This is why I'm an actor."

How relationships effect your work…

"They do make you a better artist. I've written a few songs that have to do with being in a relationship, the bad and the good."
