You may remember Zoey from when she played Maya on Suite Life on Deck. Since then, this teen has been busy acting on other TV shows, and she will play Emily in the new Beautiful Creatures movie (rated PG-13) coming out this year. Her mother, Lea Thompson, is also a famous actress who currently plays Mrs. Kennish on Switched at Birth. But I remember her from the 80′s. Have you seen Back to the Future (rated PG)? That’s Zoey’s mom playing Lorraine! Find out more about this gorgeous young actress in our interview. . .
Q: Did you ever have the experience of moving to a new school?
Zoey: After being at one school for 9 years, I transferred to a different school for high school. I assumed it would be hard to make friends, and by having that pre-conceived notion, I think it created a barrier. After I let that go, and allowed for things to just happen as they were going to, it was great, and everyone was extremely kind.
Q: What are your best and worst middle school experiences?
Zoey: Ugh! Middle school was a nightmare. Quite honestly, I always wonder why there are so many movies revolving around how terrible high school is, when middle school was the real horror, at least in my experience. The lethal combination of toxic hormones and the fact that everyone is experiencing things for the first time is like a nuclear bomb waiting to go off. Dramatic response aside, I loved the education I had in middle school. The curriculum was very interesting to me.
Q: How do your friends react to your stardom?
Zoey: I’m not like some huge star with cameras following me to Jamba Juice, the movies, or outside my house, but they are very supportive of what I do, and I’m very appreciative of that.
Q: Food you could not live without?
Zoey: Salad, sushi, pasta, all food.
Q: A perfect day would include?
Zoey: I’m a homebody. A perfect day would include watching movies, making food every five seconds, and cuddling with my puppies and family.
Q: What is one thing you wish everyone would do to make the world a better place?
Zoey: I wish people, including myself, had an instinct to think before speaking, to think if it will offend, hurt, or perhaps embarrass anyone.
Q: Whom do you look up to most in the world?
Zoey: My mother. For her strength, humility, never-ending kindness, and ability to find love in all that exists. She is the most extraordinary person I know. I look to her for everything.
Q: Personal motto or favorite quote?
Zoey: “Everything will be ok in the end. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end.” (Anonymous) “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.” (Oscar Wilde)
