Ask Brooke / January 2001
In honor of the real new millennium this edition of the Q&As takes on the theme of: "The Past, The Present, and The Future".
What was it like working with Lee Tompson Young (The Famous Jett Jackson)?
Lee Thompson Young was a lot of fun to work with on the set of Jett Jackson. He has a great sense of humour and makes a new castmate feel at ease.
Work most memorable in 2000 would definitely be the miniseries Haven. The t.v. film was a period piece set in the early 1940's, nearing the end of World War II. It was almost surreal being transformed (after hair/makeup and wardrobe) from my 'normal' teenage self to a young lady from the 1940's.
Throughout season 1 and 2 of Animorphs we were almost exclusively outfitted with clothes from the Gap. I don't think I've ever heard of the clothing brand 'Zutopia'!
I have a tendency to be over-critical of myself and sometimes I'm too hard on myself for my own good! It's difficult, but I'm really trying hard not to 'sweat the small stuff'.
In my spare time I like to go out to the movies with friends or family. I most recently saw "Save the Last Dance" at the theatre which was particularly enjoyable since I also love to go out dancing (whether it's Club/House, HipHop or Latin.)
This coming year I am concentrating on doing well in all of my OAC subjects (the marks which will be submitted to university). After I graduate in June (aaahh!) I can devote myself entirely to studying acting and hopefully getting more work. I plan to apply for a Bachelor of Fine Arts program at a drama school in New York (Juilliard and S.U.N.Y. Purchase College are among my top choices). However, I know that things don't always turn out as planned, so I'm keeping my options open to include a possible career in other creative areas such as journalism or a law-related practice.
Hmmmm, spoilers about in a Heartbeat?! Well, I do lock lips with a very handsome young man!!!
