Hey Indi, how are you? How has this past year been for you?
Hi! The past year has gone surprisingly well. I have learned so many great lessons, made amazing friends and have focused more on my singing career!

How would you sum up 2021 in one word?
Challenging – but a good kind of challenge.

How did you first get into acting, what sparked the interest?
I started getting into acting when I was 8 years old. My whole family and I moved out to Los Angeles seven years ago to pursue my acting career. I started as a dancer and then began singing and then acting. It was just my own private progressions in the performing arts.

And then you went on to star in Dead To Me, what was this experience like – it was a huge show!
Dead To Me was a very fun experience. I got to meet so many fun people, made so many great memories and I am just so glad that I got the opportunity to be a part of the show! It was such an interesting experience because I got to combine singing, dancing and acting altogether on such a popular project.

And now you’re set to star in The Hyperions, how did you first get involved with the show, what was the casting process like? And you play Young Vista, talk us through your character, how did you approach this role? Could you relate to the role in any way?
I was very excited when I got the call that I booked the role of Young Vista. Young Vista was a very fun role to play. I remember having so much fun with the directors talking about video games and dancing. It was also an amazing time on set with Cary Elwes. Young Vista was the biggest role I had booked at the time and just being able to dive into such a fun character and interact with such an amazing cast will be something I will always cherish.

You have amassed over 2.5 million followers on Instagram, do you feel any pressure at all?
I sometimes do feel a lot of pressure when it comes to responding to fans and making sure they know I love and appreciate them. I always try my best to show that, but it’s a lot of work. I love my job and I would never change it.

Who would you love to play you in a biopic?
I think it would be really cool if Scarlett Johansson played me!

What are you most excited about in 2022?
I am most excited for The Hyperions to come out in February! Plus, I’m excited to make much more music and to start work on my first album!
