It's extremely flattering. If it means people are struck by the show and being affected by it, then I'm thrilled. It's always wonderful to be recognized for something you've put your heart into. But focusing on it any more than that messes with my head. I've always found it a hard balance to strike. 3. If I had $15 million and said, “Jessie dream big,” what musical would you want to headline next?
Ha! Can my sister Abby and I do Frozen the Musical?! If Disney says 'no,' I'm goin' with Funny Girl. 4. What’s keeping you off Twitter and Instagram?
My soul. No seriously, I know myself well enough to know I'm not healthy with that kind of stuff. It makes me compare myself to others too much. I already spend too much time on numerous devices! It's a great marketing tool, I think it's just not for me. 5. You’ve said you’re a big Downton Abbey fan; if you could inject yourself into the show, who would your character be? Upstairs? Downstairs? How would she fit into the drama?
I would totally be a lady’s maid. I would not make the cut for upstairs. But the downstairs people are getting into trouble this season! I would have to keep my wits about me. That, or maybe sashay in with the new jazz craze, as an American singer.
