Rutina: (on becoming an actress) I always loved being on stage. Both of my parents were dancers, so I grew up in the business. When I got to high school, I got to major in both theater and dance. I love playing characters and telling stories and moving audiences. I decided to go to college and focus on acting because you sort of can't do both. My dad was like, "Well don't forget about your feet!" 'cause he's a tap dancer … but I was really excited about acting. It was that performing arts high school that made me into the actor that I am.
