Heart Of Hollywood reached out to some of her fans and gathered some questions for Cristyn. These are her responses.


What made you decide to become an actress?

When I was young, my mom and I had a standing date every summer to go to the theater in Manchester, New Hampshire. We picked out the shows we wanted to see and had tea and cheesecake after each one and talked about what we just saw. On opening night of one of the shows, the lead broke her shoe. The actors gathered around her nonchalantly to fix it and she got a standing ovation for continuing. During curtain call, she received roses and another standing ovation. I loved it. I loved the teamwork that happened, I loved the attention she warranted, and I wanted to be up there bowing with her.


At what age did you decide you wanted to pursue a career in acting?
