"It's OK, I'll go to your next one."

In a recent "Get Ready With Me" TikTok, Anderson-Emmons looked back on landing her role on the sitcom and balancing school and work. "I think people don't realize, I was working, and if I wasn't working on the set, that I had to do three hours of studio school a day, so I had no time to rest except lunch," she said. "And there are moments that were fun, for sure. And there were things I loved about it."

Anderson-Emmons also shared that though she didn't think she'd act again after the show ended, her theater class experiences in high school have since changed her mind. "I was like, 'Wait, I kind of want to do this.' And now I'm auditioning again," she said. "So that's fun and I hope to do something."
