Rachel: Nim's Island is spectacular. I love the chemistry between Jodie Foster, Abigail Breslin, and Gerard Butler. They are all fantastic in this movie. The imagination scenes are really detailed and real and you've gotta go see this movie to know exactly what I mean.
Rachel (about Desperate Housewives): I cannot tell anything about what's going on. But I'll say this, you'll be gripped and shocked and, oh my gosh, you are never going to believe what's happening on Wisteria Lane. Marc Cherry is an incredible writer and creator. He thinks of things other people may not think of. It makes his ideas so different and he keeps people guessing.
Rachel: Aside from the amazing actors on Desperate Housewives, I would so love to work with Will Smith. He is hysterical and he has so much charisma, that I would love to be around him. Hayden Christensen is another amazing actor. He was incredible in Star Wars. Zac Efron is so cute and he's a fantastic dancer and singer. Jim Carrey definitely is an actor I'd love to work with. He is so good in so many different roles. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Bruce Almighty were so funny that my family and I were roaring with laughter. As far as actresses, it would be so incredible to work with Julia Roberts. She was great in Mystic Pizza, The Pelican Brief, and Pretty Woman. But again, there are just so many great performers that every time I am lucky enough to work and play with someone new, it is a wonderful dream-come-true.
Rachel: Every time I'm on the set, it's like a fairytale dream.
Rachel: Miley Cyrus is really nice and really bubbly. She's such a great singer and she's so funny. Her dad, Mr. Billy Ray is also really nice and very welcoming. Raven is cool and very fashionable. Her shoes -- well, she is the Shoe Queen. I'd love to have just one pair. When she's working, she's really focused and it is really amazing to watch her do her thing. Brent and Shane Kinsman are so funny. They are very different from each other, even though they're twins. One is more quiet than the other. Can you guess which one is quieter and which one is more outgoing? They never bug me. When we're on the set and not in school, we get the chance to talk and hang out a little. Also, Zane Huett, who plays Parker on Desperate Housewives, is so cool. I love working with him and it is so fun having three brothers on the show. If I could go back and do any show again, I'd do them all! Each one had a different personality. Each show was so happy and so fun to be on. I would go crazy if I could sing on stage with Hannah Montana or Aly and AJ. I've just written my first song and am working on getting it recorded.
Rachel: I'm saving for my future mansion.
Rachel (About her DH character, Kayla): I don't like her. She's mean to Lynette. Everytime I watch that scene of Kayla walking up the stairs bonking the doll's head on the stairs I feel like crying. It hurts so badly.
Rachel (About Desperate Housewives): Being on the set is like a fairytale. It's that and then 10 times more amazing. Working with Miss Felicity and Mr. Doug is so amazing. They are so professional and I learn so much from them. It's so fun working with Zane, Brent, and Shane. One of my favorite scenes was when they dragged me out of the restaurant into Lynnette's car. We were all screaming and laughing. It was great!
Rachel: It is an honor to be nominated for the Young Artist Awards. Doing what I love, then being recognized for it is awesome. I appreciate all the hard work of the nominating committee and all the people who put the Nomination Party and Awards Banquet together. One man said he stayed up until 3am working on it. That's amazing.
Rachel: Style is everything.
Rachel: Sometimes people talk to me at airports, at the video store, and other cool places, like at Abercrombie. It's so fun talking to people and answering their questions.
Rachel: People recognize me and ask me if I am Kayla on Desperate Housewives. The other day at my school soccer game, a girl on the other team asked me if I was Kayla on Desperate Housewives...right there on the soccer field! It made me feel bubbly.
Rachel: Playing Kelly on AIO is so fun, but it is hard being mean to the Washington family and Connie. Katie Leigh (Connie), Courtney Brown (Tamika), and Mark Christopher Lawrence (Ed Washington), are so nice in real life that I had to work hard to be angry and mean.
Rachel (about finding out she got the role as Kayla on Desperate Housewives): I felt like I was dreaming. I was in a swimming pool playing with my friends and my mom came and told me. I felt like I was going to cry I was so happy!
Rachel: Working on the set is playing to me and playing is never tiring.
Rachel: Every minute I'm on the set, it's play time for me. I feel like I'm on the beach.
Rachel: If you pick a job that you love, you will never work a day in your life.
