I believe everyone can see a touch of Rhea in themselves. I know I do.
What does it mean to you personally to be involved in this movie? What do you hope the audience takes away from the movie?
I couldn’t be more proud to be part of a movie that is such a milestone. I’m personally very lucky that I grew up seeing characters on screen that I could identify with and, I believe it’s an absolute necessity that everyone has the opportunity to grow up feeling the same way and identifying with those they see on screen.
We’ve seen on your social media that you’re an amazing singer! Will you be singing in any upcoming projects in the future? Maybe in the sequel if there is one?…
I’m going to have to tell my elementary choir teacher that! It is quite honestly the best compliment I have ever received! Singing definitely isn’t my strongest point, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t have a burning desire to start a band and tour the world, we’ll just have to see. As for a Spin sequel, I’m not too sure – but I’d love to see DJ Max show off his singing chops.
If you could choose to star in the movie version of any musical, which musical would it be, and what character would you want to play?
I know that Dear Evan Hansen is being turned into a film, and I think Ben Platt is phenomenal in that role, but I’ve always had this little desire to take on that role myself. The message of DEH is so beautiful and I think that’s why so many relate to it.
If you were given the opportunity to sing on stage with any major artist, who would it be?
If Dean Lewis wants me to open for him, I will be there! I wouldn’t even have to sing, I could juggle for all I care! I love Dean!

I want kids to know that they can do anything. I once was a little tot finding my way in the world, unsure of exactly how I would fit in, but when you decide to take up space in the world and let your voice out, people will listen.
