Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Aimee: No matter where you are or where you grow up, you always go through the same awkward moments of being a teenager and growing up and trying to figure out who you are.

    • Aimee: I was never part of that cliquey girl drama. Most of my friends were guys growing up, so I was never part of that whole toxic energy. It seemed like way too much hassle.

    • Aimee: I don't have a TV at my house. I literally do not. I have a television, but I don't have anything plugged into it, though. I watch DVDs.

    • Aimee: The teenage years are ridiculously crucial and hard and, um, awkward.

    • Aimee: I think dates considered super corny and cheesy - whether it's going bowling or miniature golf or something where you can be competitive and just have fun with each other - those always make the most memorable dates!

    • Aimee: Whatever you do, be happy with you. Don't conform. You are who you are, and you shouldn't change that for anybody.

    • Aimee: Don't worry about everything and really enjoy the moment.

    • Aimee: In general I like a guy who is athletic, somebody who can teach me something. Whether it's teaching me a new way to cut on a wave or teach me a three-point conversion or teach me how to dribble a soccer ball. There's something really cool about that.

    • Aimee: In general I like a guy who is athletic, somebody who can teach me something. Whether it's teaching me a new way to cut on a wave or teach me a three-point conversion or teach me how to dribble a soccer ball. There's something really cool about that.

    • Aimee: Animals in general have always been my passion, project, crusade - whatever you want to call it! The ocean is such a huge, beautiful thing that I feel like we all take for granted.

    • Aimee: I don't know if I've ever been in a clique. The older I've gotten, the more I've realized what a true friend really is. So my friendship circle has changed a bit.

    • Aimee: I'm a a very adventurous person who loves the out doors and loves to try new thing and [I]love to shop.... A LOT!

    • Aimee:(On filming "Friday Night Lights") Um, it's definitely a different experience. We have three cameras going at all times. You never know where you're supposed to look. I'll turn around a lot and like look straight into a camera and be like "darn it"! But, um, the pilot was really awesome. It was a month in Austin. I got to stay at the Four Seasons Hotel, which was pretty sweet. It's very different, it really is. There's no rehearsing, there's no you hitting your marks. It's all just kind of "Okay, so here's your lines, and play with them and have fun."

    • Aimee:(On her favorite TV show) My guilty pleasure would have to be "The O.C.". I'll watch a full season in like, three days straight.

    • Aimee:(On co-star Zach Gilford) I love Zach Gilford, he is awesome. He's a great actor and he's just cool to hang out with all the time. He's like my big brother, he watches out for me and takes care of me. So, it's all good.

    • Aimee:(On landing her role on "Friday Night Lights") The audition process, it was kind of interesting because on the break-downs it was written that it was like "must be 18 and over, must do this, must do that". And I was like, "I'm not 18 and over, blah blah blah, I'm not emancipated." I was just kind of going into the audition for my agent to make him happy. And I went into the audition, I did my thing, and ended up with four callbacks, and then I ended up landing the job, which is pretty sweet.

    • Aimee:(On how she got into acting) I was probably around four or five when I really wanted to start acting and my mom was totally against it. She's like, "No, no, no, we're not going to do that. We're going to put you in sports." So I played sports for five or six years; baseball and basketball. And then these people called my house for an acting class and I was like, "Mom, please, please!" and she's like, "Okay, you can take a few classes but you're not allowed to be in the business." I was like, "Okay, whatever." So, I was about ten, and then I got an agent from there and I started going out on auditions and it just kind of all fell in my lap. So, it's quite exciting.

    • Aimee:(On filming in Texas) It's kind of isolating, it is. But I think if we were in LA I think the show would definitely not be as good. Number one, because we're not shooting in Texas and wouldn't be all on location. But number two, it just, it really gives the cast time to bond with each other and really get to know each other rather than just going off and doing their thing and then showing up to work.

    • Aimee:(On being a spokeswoman for YMI Jeanswear) YMI is a brand I feel I can really relate to. Their jeans are fashionable, fit great and appeal to teens like me.

    • Aimee: I had never even heard of Peter Berg before the second audition, and he was there, and I had learned all my lines and I was excited, and then he was like, "So, what really pisses you off these days?". And I was like, "Um, excuse me?". He's like, "What gets under your skin and pisses you of?". And I'm like, "Uh, gas prices." Everybody can relate to gas prices.

    • Aimee: (On her career goals)I want to do a horror film where I either get to kill somebody or be killed. That's definitely on my top priorities.

    • Aimee: (On playing Julie Taylor on "Friday Night Lights") I can just relate to Julie a lot. And it's not just about being a coach's daughter, it's about being a teenager in general and just going through the struggles of a normal teenager.

  • Julie Taylor of Friday Night Lights

    As I write this review today, it's actually Aimee's 20th Birthday. Happy Birthday Aimee.



    I haven't seen her in more than Friday Night Lights and the guest appearing as Rhonda Kimble at 90210, but at this young age I'm still very impressed by her talent.



    Friday Night Lights have alot of great actors, and it's the backbone of the show. Still. To me Aimee is the outstanding one. She gives life to the character Julie Taylor in a very credible way, she's got great interaction with both the actors playing her parents(Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler), and also with Zach Gilford and Adrianne Palicki as boyfriend Matt and bestfriend Tyra. She also got the abillity to carry a scene on her own without any huge dialogue necessary. It's alot in her bodylanguage, facial expressions and attitude in general.



    Unlike alot of the actors playing teens in these kind of shows these days, Aimee is still only 20. Then it's even more impressing she's able to outshine other parts of the cast.



    I'm really looking forward to see alot more from her in the years to come.moreless
  • She is one of the stars of Friday Night Lights

    Aimee possesses a really quirky type of beauty and youth that is really refreshing to see on TV. Next to the stick thin super model beauty that the actresses how play Tyra and Lyla have she is a nice contrast that brings the show back to reality. Yes, her character is a little annoying on the show, but she plays it well and gives more dimension past the simple premise of a bratty child. I'm looking forward to her recieving some story lines that give her a chance to act, personally I think Tim Riggins should come and break her heart, but I would settle for her and Matt getting back together. Back to her as an actress, she is still young and should have a good career ahead of her.moreless
