Kelly Overton: (On the script for Breaking Dawn) Usually, I just read up to the point of the scene where my audition is. This time it was late and I was tired but I just couldn't stop reading it. I read it all.
Kelly Overton: (On her Broadway debut) I happened to go to the theater an hour early, and the stage manager said to me, 'You know you're going on for Alicia, right?' I was so nervous, but there was no time to rationally think about what was happening. I just stood back there before my first entrance thinking, 'OK, I don't know any of my lines!' But then I just had to take a deep breath and dive. It was like a roller coaster!
