Dana:(On how she started acting) My Mom took me to the theater for the first time when I was six years old and I was just amazed by it, and I just said, "Hey Mom can I do this too?' And so she signed me up for little theater classes and I remember my first audition for a play when I was seven years old was for "The Thankful Elf" and I remember all the little kids getting up, auditioning for "The Thankful Elf" and I'm sitting there like, no, The Thankful Elf would not say it like that, and I just knew, I knew who the Thankful Elf was and so for my first audition I booked the lead as the Thankful Elf and so I've been acting ever since. I used to ask my Mom when I was ten years old, can we move to L.A., please, please. I would look in the Chicago Sun-Times because I'm from the Midwest and I would look for auditions and I'd be like, "Mom, there's an audition in Chicago, can you take me?" She'd be like, no you got to wait, wait, because we just didn't have the financial resources for me to do that. And so I waited until I was 18, I went college hunting when I was 16. I was on a mission. Like I knew what I wanted to do when I was just a little girl so.
