No, I cannot say I’ve ever been a stripper!

When I filmed my scene I was licking a giant lollipop. I whipped my hair around in one shot and the whole thing got stuck to my hair! It wasn’t fun trying to get that out.

I also got to do some hands-on work on this episode and style some of the hair. It was fun working on and off screen.
