Q: You seem like the nicest person. How hard is it to step into the role of Madison?
A: It wasn’t that hard because I knew a LOT of b**ches in high school. I learned from the best!
Q: How do VM fans react when they see you in real life?
A: I don’t know! They stare at me for a long time and then walk away, usually! Come say hi, people! I’ll kiss your babies!!!
Q: Did you get to keep anything from the set?
A: Ok, let’s see…I kept a blue robe from a bathing suit scene. I kept the yellow stuffed monkey from this episode. What else?
Q: Was it hard or fun to be so mean?

A: Mostly I was just SO excited and hoped I would get to be part of the #VeronicaMarsMovie. I emailed @RobThomas right away!
Q: What was your favorite episode to film?
A: Favorite episodes to film would be this one (Ain’t No Magic Mountain High Enough) and A Trip To The Dentist. That one was pretty fun. But what I always REALLY wanted was for a @veronicamars musical episode.
Q: What o you imagine Logan and Madison’s hook up in aspen to have been like?
A: suuuuuuper steamy!!!
Q: So funny seeing bitchy Maddy juxtaposed with your happy tweets. Could you have hit the target if you tries for real?

Q: All time favorite Madison line?

Q: What do you miss most about veronica mars?
A: The things I miss most? The cast/crew & being part of a show with such an awesome cult following.

A: It was epic! Wouldn’t everyone want to be bitch slapped by @IMKristenBell??!?!?
Q: How do you think Madison would react to knowing she and Mac were switched at birth?

Q: Will you be at the LA premiere? Would love to meet you!
A: HELLLL YEAH I’ll be at the LA premiere! See you there!
Q: Do you believe a sort of truce if not friendship between Veronica and Madison could ever happen?
A: I actually think so. I really do! I think in a deep way. Madison actually respects Veronica.

A: Steal my phone, girl. PLEASE.
Q: If you could have had Madison interact with any character (romantically or otherwise) who would it be?
A: Well, I never got to do a scene with @ricocolantoni. I don’t know about romantic, but on a personal level it would have been great.
Q: Are there any VM hairstyles that make you cringe? @PDaggsIII had trouble with his season two hair.
A: YES!!!! I dyed my hair brown right before a flashback episode, so I had to wear a wig. Terrible. In one episode, I also had a glorified mullet. LOL
Q: Have you ever given someone a real “trip to the dentist’?

Q: Without spoiling, is Madison where you expected her to be at her 10 year reunion?
A: Without spoiling, for SURE.
Q: If you could have been another character boy or girl who would you have loved to play?

Q: Any specific songs you would’ve liked to have Madison sing in this? (Veronica Mars musical episode)
A: This is the most exciting question anyone has ever asked me. “I’m A Bitch” by Meredith Brooks. No, that’s not right. What would be a good ironic song for Madison?

Q: What’s your favorite memory from filming VM?
A: During a really late night, between takes we all ended up dancing in rolling chairs in the school.

Q: What’s a show (on or off air) you’ve always wanted to guest star on?
A: ……………….I Love Lucy?
Q: Did it feel different filming the movie compared to shooting the show?
A: Of course! It was SO different. We had all grown up & hadn’t seen each other in SO long. But I think the most exciting thing was having backers on set & seeing how excited everyone was!
Q: What is your personal weakness at the craft services table on sets?
A: Red Vines, but they’re not gluten-free, so I can’t have them anymore. I’ve grown to love chocolate. * sigh *

Q: If you could have Madison date anyone besides Dick who would it be???
A: Didn’t Madison already date, like, literally everyone on the show?

Q: Would you ever do another TV series?
Q: So I’m guessing you did plays in school? Any favorites? Is that how you got into acting?
