Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Summer: (on what an actor should always do) Try to be honest with themselves. I think that every time you lie to yourself, you shrink and erase a little bit of who you are. It leaves a person vacant, and you can't build a character out of nothing.

    • Summer: (on playing Jasira in "Towelhead") There were these long notes in the script of how it was supposed to be handled. That character was so complex and I worked on it so much. I didn't identify with her life, but I felt connected to her. I understand her solitude and loneliness and displacement.

    • Summer: (on leaving the Middle East after 9/11) There were certain things that they didn't want to be around. The school had to close down for a few days after 9/11 for security reasons. There were people there with armed guards. My parents were like, 'It's time to go.'

    • Summer: I always kind of wanted to act, so when my family moved back, I just pursued it. I went to this fresh-talent show and got my first manager, who got me an agent, and it kind of snowballed from there.

    • Summer: (in an August 2008 interview) I like doing dramas--it's safe for me because I've done two of them. But I would love to do comedy, too. I would love to go to the set and have a good time and laugh.

  • OMG this girls its just amazing. She is one of the most beautiful girls in Hollywood.

    OMG this girl is amazing. Give her a show of her own, and more movies. She is just one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen. On the stuff I've seen her in on Tv she seems very good but she must be really talented to have gotten the lead in Alan Ball's new film. Can't wait to see it or her in more things. Wake up Hollywood a new star has come to town.moreless
  • Saw her filming Hannah Montana Live a real cutie!!

    She is a real cutie. Saw her live filming Hannah Montana, great little screen presence. Been tracking her through IMBD and it looks like she's showing up on quite a few of the tween shows. I'd like to see more of her. My little sister asked her for an autographn and she was really sweet and nice, not stuck up at all for being such a beauty. Has a reall interesting biography posted on IMBD, grew up on some little island some where, but was born right here in Pasadena. She looks a lot like a young Jessica Alba, hope her to see more of her in the future.moreless
