    • Kay: (On anyone watching the TV series "No Ordinary Family") Absolutely. It has the 8:00 time slot, so there's nothing racy or very violent, it's a really wholesome show. I think a lot of TV networks kind of try and go for a particular niche. You have the comedy shows that are good for the teenage boys, and you have this for the girls, and our show is very much comedy that everyone finds funny, and we have a family element that I just don't think is in any family shows on the air right now.

      I remember when Gossip Girl came out. I used to watch it with my mom, and we were shocked with what they were able to get away with at the 8:00 time slot, that's normally the family time. Our show has questions of drugs and alcohol but it's always in a very family oriented way, and nothing bad happens and it's a realistic look at it on how someone would deal with that. Some of the storyline are developmental, so you'll want to watch every episode to know what will happen, but at the same time you'll be able to jump in and enjoy the show for an hour. I'm really impressed with it; it's a very well written show.

    • Kay: (On her character Daphne Powell on the TV series "No Ordinary Family") She's a very typical teenage girl. She loves her phone, she loves hanging out with her friends and doesn't really care about her family and the problems they're having. As such, the power she gets is the power to read minds, which makes her more sympathetic. She now hears the real problems that people are dealing with and it makes her more compassionate. It doesn't make her perfect overnight, she still fights with her family, but she has a really special relationship with her dad and with her brother.

    • Kay: (About the TV series "No Ordinary Family") It's about a family that's struggling. The mom is a workaholic and the father works for his own sanity, but he takes care of the kids. When we go on a trip for my mom's science business trip, we crash, and we all get super powers. The show follows the family as they grow as individuals, as a family and as they grow as people with super powers. It's cool to see the superpowers, but the heart of the show is about the family that's struggling and the superpowers make that more difficult. You think it'd make it cool and make them closer, but often times it's the opposite.

    • Kay: (talking about her show Summerland) The cast and crew are such a tight knit family. A lot of series will say, "oh yea, our family is a tight family," but we really are a family like that. I really just get a long with everybody and it's so good how well everybody gets along.

  • This girl can act.

    From being mean to acting crazy to being shy to scary this girl can do it all. I love the way that her sister and her are so close. They look a little bit a like. I first notice her on phil of the future then after she stop guest starring i then notice her on summer land. I only liked the show because of zac efron and kay. Lori is cool and all but that was kinda boring. Kay appeared on a couple of disney channel movies like life is ruff and read it and weep. Kay one word ... trendsetter.moreless
  • Amazing!

    I have seen Kay in many tv shows/movies and I have to say she is truely amazing. She is a wonderful actres and I expecially loved her part in Phil of the Future. Her roles seem to vary a lot so you know that she can really act because she has had to be so many different personalities. I also think her sister, Danielle, is an amazing actress and both of them will go far. I look forward to seeing her on more shows in the future and I wish her the best of luck. You can do it Kay!moreless
