Bethany Joy Lenz Interview

By: Sindy

Bethany Joy Lenz has been acting for a while, but you probably recognize her best from her role on One Tree Hiil as Haley James. Hear what she has to say about Hollywood, love, relationships and her favorite food right here!

Sindy: What has been your most enjoyable acting role so far and why?
Bethany: I absolutely loved working with Paul Anthony Stewart on Guiding Light. He is a wonderful, spontaneous actor and the chemistry we had was rare. Also, I had a blast playing Paul Sorvino's daughter in an ABC pilot called "Burning Down the House". And of course I can't rule out my theater roles... the stage is really a home away from home for me. I feel I get to be me the most when I'm on stage.

Sindy: Your character on One Tree Hill, Haley, gets married straight out of high school. What are your thoughts on marrying young?
Bethany: Young is one thing - 16 is another. I don't know any 16 year olds who are ready to get married... come to that, I don't know many 26 or 36 year olds who are ready to get married. I think you ought to know who you are and be willing to give ALL of yourself to your spouse, not just some of you. Marriage is two becoming one and until you are ready and willing to take the kind of risks that will keep the marriage alive, you shouldn't do it.

Sindy: What do you enjoy doing more - acting or singing? What would you rather win, an Oscar or a Grammy?
Bethany: I can love or hate acting depending on whether the material is good or bad, but I'll always love singing. As far as winning an Oscar or a Grammy... I don't care much for awards. If it's like an appreciation kind of award or something like that, that's cool, but I think Hollywood's turned it into a competition and I don't believe in that. I mean, who are we to say that one person's best is better than another person's best? That's also why our public school system is so messed up, but I won't get into that :) Lol. I don't know, I just think people should do projects they believe in, and not projects that will win them awards.

Sindy: You've had the opportunity to do a duet with Tyler Hilton on the One Tree Hill soundtrack - who else would you like to collaborate with?
Bethany: Billy Joel would be a dream to work with. He's a musical genius. Paula Cole, too... she's really, really underrated.

Sindy: What's on your iPod/CD player right now? Who are your musical influences?
Bethany: A new band called ENATION is in my iPod always (www.enationmusic.com). Right now I'm listening to John Denver and some others in there are Rachel Yamagata, Jamie Cullum, Linkin Park, the soundtracks to Aida, Les Mis, Ain't Misbehavin', and Jars of Clay's new album.

Sindy: I've read that you have aspirations to act on Broadway - is there a specific production you would want to work on?
Bethany: Mary Poppins is in London right now and I hope to audition for it when it comes to NY. Beauty and the Beast also has always been a dream of mine... I don't know, there are so many good shows out there.

Hi there! I am Rose, (If you have somehow not seen me around so far) an avid writer and roleplayer here on KW. I've recently realized that I love critique. It's one of my favorite things to do and receive. And not so recently, I realized there's a lot of OCs that need improvement out there.  Like a lot. It's kind of scary. So I've decided to start reviewing these OCs, both the good and the bad. But as always, I have some standards.  I will review OCS from these fandoms: Dr. Who Undertale Danganronpa RWBY  Soul Eater Warrior Cats Hunger Games Divergent Harry Potter Vocaloid Black Butler MLP (Yes I am a bit of a closet brony shh don't tell anyone) Ava's Demon (Although I doubt anyone knows what this is) Percy Jackson Adventure Time Steven Universe Gravity Falls 99% of Disney Attack On Titan Touhou Avatar (The four elements and stuff not the weird blue people.) Pokemans Original Works Ask me if I review anything that isnt on this list. But before people start freaking out, I do not review LOTR, Supernatural, Narnia, or Sherlock.  Please put your character in an RP style form including name, personality, backstory, and any fandom specific info. If your character is in one of the fandoms listed go ahead and post right away. I will respond ASAP with how you can improve your OC and a general rating. Be prepared for criticism. Well, go ahead and start posting your OCs!

Disney is good in my opinion but I feel like each time I watch a disney movie that it just don't want to make me watch it again. Like when I was younger I would watch my favorite disney movie a billion times but now I can barely make it through watching the same movie/episode twice.
