But she was always wanted to act, and then when she got injured, it was a blessing in disguise. Much to her parents’ dismay, she got an agent, and he sent her to audition for Bunheads. She stated that it worked to her advantage that she was ignorant about the whole audition process, and what it took to land a part.
