Kirsten Prout plays Amanda Bloom on the hit TV show Kyle XY. We sat down to chat with the rising star about the second season of the show and what it's like to be a working teenage actor.

Sindy: Kyle XY just started. What can people expect in the second season?
Kirsten Prout: A lot of surprises; a lot of change and a lot of excitement. We were developing a base in the first season, and the second season is so action-packed and we have a lot of developments that the viewers will really enjoy.

Sindy: Can you tell me a little about your character, Amanda?
Kirsten Prout: Amanda has a lot of problems, and different issues to deal with this season, and what I love about her is that she has such an emotional range. Sure, she has her problems, but she also always sees the hope and the light in things. I would consider her someone that's very optimistic, and she'll need that this season to get through all the issues that are posed.

Sindy: You were also just in a Lifetime movie called Cry Wolf. Can you tell me about that?
Kirsten Prout: Yeah, it was a very quick one that was fun to do while I was off from Kyle XY, but it's really great to be back in the show.

Sindy: Do you have anything else on the go?
Kirsten Prout: I did have a movie I was going to do, but the problem is that Kyle XY went to 22 episodes, instead of the original 13 we were going to do, so I don't think I'll be able to do the movie. It's a let-down, but it obviously means that the show is doing well, which is a real silver lining. Maybe something can be worked out, but it doesn't look too hopeful right now.

Sindy: How did you get your start in acting?
Kirsten Prout: When I was 10 years old. When I was really young, I just had that childish fantasy. I was always telling my mom "I want to be in the movies." It started out with Disney Princesses. I wanted to be a Disney Princess. That eventually turned into the realization that it was an actual career and I could actually pursue it. So I kept asking my mom, and she was very afraid to let her little girl go into an industry so filled with rejection. Finally she let me go to my first audition, which was terrible. I was so nervous, but after a few I got a commercial with Wayne Gretzky and it really built my confidence up.
