Missy: Life is often a grand illusion, devoid of anything that matters and we need to step away in order to see the Truth.

Missy: It's really easy to get down on yourself and get really self-centered in this industry. If you don't get the role, it's because of the way you look -- it's always about you.

Missy: I want young women to respect themselves. I want them to eat food, for God sakes, but I want them to take care of themselves. I want to inspire athleticism within young women... for them to take care of their bodies and it all starts with how you think of yourself.
Missy: (about her experience in LA) The power of influence here is crazy, which can be a good thing, but I think it's really tough to stand up for really good things here because that's not what sells.
Missy: (on the characters in Heroes) I feel like every character on this show has the ability to do good things with their powers but also have temptations that would encourage them to use them for selfish reasons.
Missy: (on the difference between acting in film and on TV) The one thing that I love about film is that you know the story from beginning to end. There's a character development and you get to see the arc and, in television, you are waiting script by script.
Missy: I want girls to be who they are and what they have to offer and it's not based on what other people think about you.
