I also did a lot of boxing training and hand-to-hand combat. I just had to get in the mindset of someone who would want to do that every day! It was cool because I pushed myself physically and mentally. I couldn’t be vain about being sweating and smelling gross or worry about taking a hit or two.”.

That’s not typically the first thing that comes to mind when you look at me, I don’t think. But when I put on that wig – luckily they didn’t dye my hair – and change my physicality a lot… Nothing against brunettes – I still felt beautiful. But I felt a lot less inhibited, and I felt down to be a little more brash and powerful and strong. I kind of hid behind all this brown hair, and it gave me the power and confidence to verbally rip this one over here. [Laughs.]”. Her portrayal as Clarisse was met with mostly positive reviews.
