What did you guys do when you were just hanging out on the set?
We spent a lot of time at the craft truck. The craft truck is definitely your friend when you're on a set. We had a very tight schedule and we were coming and going and doing a lot. We had sports doctors, athletics therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, nutritionists… We had everything. We were training, we were acting, we were schooling, we were doing all of the above.

Was there any free time to go hang out?
There definitely was. One of my best friends on the film was Juliana Cannarozzo, who plays Zoe. She was a sweetheart. I adored her. We were very much together, constantly. And, it was great being in Toronto in the summer because it was beautiful…

Are you and Trevor Blumas good friends?
Yeah, Trevor is a good friend of mine. He's a sweetheart. We just had a really, really good time, just going all over. I was back and forth from Florida. My aunt lives in Florida and we were taking some vacations down there. It was all good. It was all a blast.

How fun was it to have a song in the film?
It's very, very fun. I have been recording some songs for this. I sing a song at the end credits called "I Fly," and it's on the soundtrack. It's produced by Jamie Houston, who's amazing. He did such a phenomenal job. It's really exciting. I've been in the studio a lot with my voice manager, Valerie Morris, who's phenomenal. I've spent a lot of time on the mic, even recently, and have just been really looking for the type of music that I want to do and looking for the right record company, and everything. It's been exciting.

Is being involved with music something you always wanted to do?
Music has always been a passion of mine. I love music, more than anything. I really love music -- just listening to it. Five For Fighting is one of my favorite bands, and I love everything from Alison Krauss to Josh Groban to Faith Hill and Jessica Andrews. It's pretty much a place to be free. Being in the acting business, you're portraying roles that aren't yourself. So when you get in the studio and you get to sing these songs, you get to put yourself into them.
