ProScout: We hear you can sing, too. What would be the name of your first hit single?
TC: It would be something relevant to my teenage experiences, maybe something like “Whoa, Don’t be a Stalker” because some girls (and guys) my age would rather follow each other around or take pictures from a distance because they don’t have the courage to have a face-to-face conversation with someone they like.
ProScout: When did you first get the on-camera bug?
TC: I knew I was meant to model when I stepped on the runway at ProScout. I felt like the stage was mine and no one could take it away from me. I knew I wanted to do something involving modeling when I got my first phone that could take pictures. Once I figured out I could take pictures of myself I began taking full advantage of it’s capabilities – and still do.
ProScout: Name your Silly Secret Wish in Show-biz:
TC: I want it all. Sing, act, model. In everything I do, I just want to leave the audience speechless.
ProScout: Share something odd/unique/weird about me that no one would guess:
TC: My hair is possessed! It is super curly hair, not wavy like most would expect but kinky curls with a random 2 inch straight spot in the front only on one side.
ProScout: Describe what you love about home life back in your home town.
TC: I love my friends and we can sometimes get ridiculously excited about the smallest things, We act pretty goofy.
ProScout: Which celeb would you most like to have as your homecoming date. Why?
TC: Mark Salling (Puck from GLEE) so we could sing together and to one another- Like our very own episode of GLEE Homecoming.
ProScout: What would you prefer most – a magazine, cover, a new album, your own TV series?
TC: I would want a special edition magazine cover that plays my music while you read – like the musical Hallmark cards.
ProScout: What would you do with your first big paycheck?
TC: I would get me a giant standard poodle as a pet; then pay my parents back all the money they have invested in me.
