On landing ‘Rock of Ages’:
“It’s so crazy. The first time I saw this show was on Broadway. I swear, I went to the show and started crying, ‘I want to be in this show. I have to be in this show.’ I had trained for it not even knowing auditions were coming up, and I ended up booking it. It’s so crazy to me. It was very surreal, actually.”
