Tracy: (on changing and becoming less of a tomboy) I think this is the most feminine that I've ever been. I bought a dress a little while ago ... and it was just for fun. I was like `I don't even know who this person is anymore!
Tracy: (on still working at her parent's own restaurant when she returns home) I love that because it's easy to get wrapped up in the world you're in. So when I go home I get to go back to the basics.
Tracy: (on bruises she get from filming action sequences in Revolution) Bruises are the good war wounds. I'll go show my fiancé afterward, I'm like `look!' He's like `Oh god, Trace.' And it will be a nice, big bloody wound
Tracy: (on the character in Revolution) She's definitely a rough and tough, can rumble kind of chick. I can relate.
Tracy: (on spending her money from her first job) I shopped, I ate, I saved none of it. It is amazing when you are 16 how quickly you can spend money.
Tracy: (on her first job in a Dairy Queen icecream store) Getting the job was easy. But I worked there for two weeks and I quickly realized it wasn't my thing. There were too many restrictions, but since my family was friends with the owner I couldn't mess up. Things like that make me nervous. I was just like, this isn't for me.
Tracy: (on her time living in Greece) I have very fond memories of growing up in Greece, of my brothers and I causing chaos and climbing up trees, which is really cool. Back then, we didn't have all the video games and all that stuff. We just had each other, and we played on the street.
Tracy: (on enjoying video games) I'm obsessed with my PlayStation. I'll come home and plug away at Fallout for a couple of hours. Or, if I'm feeling the hacking and slashing, I'll play a little God of War.
Tracy: (on moving to L.A.) I literally came to L.A. like every actor does from this little town with this big dream, and I'm living in it now. It's mind-blowing.
Tracy: I grew up with brothers, and we would play-fight a lot.
Tracy: (on her enjoying an active lifestyle) I'm a very active person. I'm a big tomboy, throwing around a football, hiking... all that stuff I love.
Tracy: Everybody has lost somebody that they care about, or hopefully you haven't, but that's part of life.
Tracy: I've always been interested in martial arts.
Tracy: I think whenever you lose somebody close to you, there's always a part of you that wishes you could have done something differently.
Tracy: (on doing the action sequences in the TV series RevolutionAdded the links to TV.com pages for person or TV series/Movie. Also updated formatting for consistency reasons.) I do kick-boxing on my own; I did about a year's worth of it. I've grown up with guys my whole life, always kind of in-the-rumble of it all. The action part and the stunt part really excite me, and it's a lot of fun.
