On her scariest
“I did a magic show in China for a little bit. It was a new stage and had a lot of big crevices in it, and I was in a box, cut in half. … When the magician moved the box, the wheels went into a crack and it tipped. Luckily, they did catch me, but I’m thinking, ‘I’m gonna die. I’m stuck in this box, and I can’t get out, and there goes my head, straight off the stage, with my feet here and my top over there’ (laughs). So it was a little scary.”
