Krissy: (on her most embarrassing moment) My freshman year in high school at the first dance of the year, I was running upstairs and I missed one step, and fell flat on my face, in front of a big group of seniors. That was pretty embarrassing.
Krissy: I realize that working on daytime is the best thing that could happen to me. I'm getting paid to basically go to school to work on my craft. That's something a lot of actors don't get to do.
Krissy: (on when she knew she wanted to become an actress) I knew the day I took my first acting class. I really didn't know before then. I just started taking classes to see if I was interested in it, and I fell in love from the very first class and I just knew this is what I wanted to do.
Krissy: (on her biggest fear) I have arachnophobia. I can't explain it, I don't know why I have it, but really, [spiders] freak me out. When I was little, if I was in the shower and there was a spider on the ceiling, I would be paralyzed. I couldn't even get out of the shower to kill it. I would just stare at it, and I would scream until my mom would come in and kill it. I'm better now. If I see one, I can at least kill it or get someone else to kill it or whatever, but they really bother me.
