Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Autumn: I really wanted to try my hand at playing a romantic comedy lead. I think it's actually a much more delicate balance than people realize, and it's a genre I always felt I could excel in.

    • Autumn: (On The OC when she joined) I didn't watch the show before. No, but you couldn't not know about the show and know who was on the show and know what the show was about. You couldn't miss it. It was such a huge deal.

    • Autumn: (On The OC ending) Yeah, it is happy and it's sad. It's nice to be able to go out and know that we did a really good season this year. That's a really nice feeling to be able to feel you are going out on top. Sad because I am going to miss everyone. But hopefully it's a small world in the business so it'll be nice to see people in other jobs. I'm going to miss it. I'm going to miss everyone. I'm going to miss my dressing room, because I painted it.

    • Autumn: (about being a murder victim on CSI) It was so cool. I totally took pictures of it. I had three giant stab wounds in my chest. Actually shooting the murder was a lot scarier than I thought it would be. I was so freaked out of my mind the whole next day. Serious. I was really, really disturbed by it. I guess because I had never shot a death scene before.

    • Autumn: (on her family watching The OC) My grandparents watch now, which is so cute. (taken from "In Touch" magazine).

    • Autumn: When he (her dog, Gatsby) turned one, I threw him a doggie birthday party. I invited eight of his doggie friends and it was a Great Gatsby theme. It was called "An Afternoon Lawn Party" and it was all decorated in green and daisies which is very Great Gatsby-esque. The dogs were running around and everyone got a doggie bag (laughs) when they left. It was really fun and I think I'm going to do it again this year.

    • Autumn: (about her dog Gatsby) He watches himself in the mirror, he's a little vain. I bought him a little stuffed Tiffany box with an engagement ring inside that he can chew on.

    • Autumn: (on Taylor) She is ridiculous. I can't wait to get every script because I never know what she is going to do!

    • Autumn: (when asked what's her idea of a romantic date) Going out to a great restaurant. I am really into cooking and food. My boyfriend and I went ATVing recently and that was fun.

    • Autumn: (when asked if she wanted to start a family) All my friends are having them, and I do want one someday, just not right now.

    • Autumn: (when asked if she gets recognized more) I don't get a lot of people approaching me, but the ones that do are so nice. I thought people might throw sodas at me because I was mean to Summer. There is always a risk in playing the villain! But they usually say they are glad I am on the show.

    • Autumn: (when asked how she keeps in shape) Besides yoga, I dance a lot. It's fantastic, though I am not that good. I am not crazy about working out.

    • Autumn: (when asked where she hoped to be in five years) I'd like to live in a house with a lot more dogs. Hopefully, still acting and doing something I love, be it film or TV.

    • Autumn: (when asked on who her OC character Taylor would pick- Seth or Ryan) Probably Seth because I tend to like the nerd.

    • Autumn: (on what's next for her OC character Taylor) You'll meet her parents and get insight into her. She's a good girl, just misguided.

    • Autumn: (on her OC character Taylor) She's controlling and a perfectionist. I went to school with girls like her and I draw on them.

    • Autumn: At 18, I played a journalist in a movie. A year later, I saw it on TV and found out it was a soft core porn film!

  • My favourite actress.

    What shocks me more than anything else about Autumn Reeser is how similar she is to her famous played character in The O.C., Taylor Townsend. Overachiever who deserves way more credit than she is given. For such a phenomenal actress, you would expect her to have been hit up heavily around the industry. For the most part though, her colleagues from The O.C. have gotten way more attention. Her quirky and charming character can just brighten up a day and most of all, she is as beautiful as she is great at acting. Her character Taylor Townsend reminds me a lot of an adult version of London in the Suite Life of Zack and Cody; both dorks but are really charming and funny. Autumn Reeser is really one of the best in the business, and it's a shame that she isn't anymore recognized than she is now.moreless
  • I just wish she'd have more projects for me to look out for.

    Like in other reviews, i hated her at first in The OC. But everything changed when she was finally teamed-up with Ben McKenzie. Taylor and Ryan are just the couple you'd love to watch. just the right combination of love, drama and super funny which made Ryan Atwood, Ben's character in The OC, light and fun to watch. I just love Autumn Reeser! I hope she'd have more shows for me to watch out for. She's very talented bacause she can make me hate her or love her depending on the character that she portrays. I miss watching her, specially in The OC.moreless
