A lot of young girls see you as a role model. What does that feel like?
Lizzy: It’s something that’s so important to me. Some people in this business overlook it and don’t take it responsibly. But people are looking up to you. I’m so happy that I am [a role model] because I can teach people about how important it is to be kind and sweet, and I can use my platform to bring light to causes and charities that are important in life.
Growing up, was there somebody in the industry you looked up to as a role model?
Lizzy: Ellen DeGeneres was one of my first role models, and she always will be because she’s such a nice, kind person. She takes time out of her day to help people, and she finds comedy in good things, not at other people’s expense.
You have such a positive perspective! How do you maintain that outlook?
Lizzy: This is what I say: Don’t let little things knock your Jenga tower over. Focus on the positive things that will build it up. Keep building it up higher and higher, and don’t let people pull out the blocks.
Have you always wanted to be an actress?
Lizzy: Honestly, I never pursued this, completely, fully, and honestly. I never told my mother, “I want to be on TV. I want to be on Nickelodeon one day. I want to be famous one day.” Those words never came out of my mouth. When I did get the opportunity to go on NRDD, I never even thought anything would come of it!
You sing as well as act. Can fans expect a debut single anytime soon?
Lizzy: I think acting is my focus right now. But I started in singing, so I would definitely love to have a singing career. I’ve been professionally training as an actor for the past four years, so I will definitely continue that for now. But I’m not ruling out music in my future.
You’ve accomplished so much at such a young age. What has been the most memorable moment?
Lizzy: When I got nominated [for my first Kids Choice award]. That was definitely a high for me because I was nominated in the “Best Female Actress” category along with huge names like Jennifer Lawrence. To this day, that’ll always be one of my very, very, very first “pinch me” moments.
From dresses to two piece sets to overalls, there’s nothing that this talented starlet can’t totally rock! Catch the seven times Lizzy dished out serious style inspo.
