    IIS-01741rWhat were your thoughts when you were first approached for If I Stay?
    I loved it. I love the character; her strength and ambition. I love that she is more than somebody’s girlfriend. Mia is someone who actually has a life in front of her, someone that knew what she wanted from a young age.
    When you read the book, what was your reaction?
    Tears. I think it was the raw emotions. And then when I found out that Gayle actually was inspired by one of her friends when she wrote it, it became so real for me and made it much more than just a book. It really kind of screamed at me and reached out to me and touched my heart.

    Can you tell me a little about Mia—what is she like and what is her journey in this film?

    When we meet Mia, she’s a young girl on the cusp of adulthood, but still innocent. She’s a girl who knows what she wants, she’s going to go get it, and she has nothing to get in her way. She’s not planning on getting into a relationship but she meets a guy and she falls for him, and that kind of derails her thought process for a second.

    What was it like working with Jamie Blackley,to develop the bond your characters share in the film?
    Jamie’s such a cool guy. We just became good friends and the rest was easy. We hung out a lot. We would all go on little trips—like we went to the mountain one day to find these bears. We went ice skating and to a concert.
    The movie is scheduled torelease today.
