I think I'm sort of method in a sense, and I enjoy, you know, trying to find that reality in fake emotion.

Some suggestions for you :

Any time you do a movie, there are going to be war wounds that you end up getting.

It's cool to be a female character who gets to be really strong and tough.

You remember where you were doing each scene. 'Oh my God, it was so hot that day.' It's kind of cool to see a movie that you haven't seen in a long time and reflect on that stuff.

When I did 'Percy Jackson,' people told me, 'Oh, you're going to be so famous... you're not going to be able to walk down the street... it's going to be huge,' and it wasn't - although it was big for my career.

I had done a lot of running in 'Texas Chainsaw' and sword-fighting in 'Percy Jackson,' which taught me to fall properly.

I'm just really excited to be doing what I love, and I think that's the best part about all of this.

I took Meisner for a long time. I use a lot of sense memory and, well, I wouldn't say Method, but I can't really avoid getting into character.

Television is going through a transformation where you're basically able to do big, long movies in television.

Following your heart and working really, really hard is the best thing you can do, and just try not to be too hard on yourself.

When I first moved here, I almost felt like I was obligated to hate L.A. as a New Yorker. I moved way too fast for this city. I walked everywhere, and I was lonely, too. It was a really hard time not knowing anybody, and you don't run into people the way you do in New York. You can go a week without seeing anyone.

When you're trying to sustain a high level of intensity and panic, sometimes it actually helps to have something happen that makes you really afraid because even if in real life it wouldn't make you that scared, to take that little bit of fear and be melodramatic about it, I guess, and convince yourself that it's worse, can be effective.

I get really frightened easily.

Every single thing you do, you don't really have expectations.

I'm really easily affected by horror films. I have pretty strong reactions to them.
