13.Do you still keep in contact with your former cast mates??
Sly and Tiffany.

14.Anyone play practical jokes on the set of California Dreams??
I did all the time as did Sly.  We were constantly trying to get the other to mess up their lines and get in trouble.

That would have to be Sly once again.

Not really.

I love it!

The Beatles and my family members.

Hopefully this summer.

22.Describe your music's sound in five words.

I wouldn't be disappointed but I wouldn't stop writing songs if it never went mainstream.

Yes but none I'm ready to talk about.  I have been auditioning a lot and writing songs.  Just recently was up for a universal film opposite Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart.

I auditioned for the role of Matt. Yes we all clicked instantly.

26.When the show first started were you all close? And how was it adjusting to heidi leaving and Jay & Jennie joining the cast?
