'Last Man Standing' is overall a lot of comedy. And I love doing that.
It's really important that people know about it and the issue in schools because it happens every day to people and it really hurts when people get bullied.
I think that the main thing that you can learn from watching 'The Spectacular Now' is just learning about growing up and moving on.
When someone is bullying you, don't let it get to you. I remember my friends in school, someone said something mean to them, and they really let it get to them. And it really affected them. But I would just say try to ignore it as much as possible and just be yourself.
I love going back and forth from drama to comedy. I love switching it around and showing people that I can do both.
I would have to say that I have to concentrate more when I'm doing comedy. There are so many details that make up any character, but developing a character for a dramatic role seems to come more naturally.
