- One of Us: As mentioned above, she's a Star Trek fan.
- Rags to Riches: She was homeless and illegally living in abandoned apartments virtually all of her adolescence, when suddenly a man passing by simply sees her sitting on a doorstep and offered her a role in Kids. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used her pay to take acting classes.
