Personal Quotes (5)

[on Snowflake (2014)] It was an absolute dream come true to work on that project. The subject matter is something that has always affected me observing this aspect of humanity. People not living in truth of who they are, afraid to be who they are. A painful reality that struck me even as a child. I hope the film touches people and invites them to be brave and honest and true to themselves no matter what.
I am here to bring creation, inspiration and beauty. It is my philosophy with my acting career as well as my jewelry-line. I want to bring a little joy to this world.
[About her jewelry line] In life if you're supposed to do something it just finds you. I always say jewelry found me. Everything came about with an effortless flow-all the doors opened for me at once and I knew that it was meant to be.
[on Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)] The role of Lillith was very special to me because my father passed away when I was very young and I always felt that he was watching over me. It was a beautiful opportunity for me to see what it's like for my father to watch over me, it was incredibly moving to stand on the other side looking at my daughter from the beyond. The experience was incredibly healing.
[on her deleted song in Newsies (1992)] I've read some fake quotes putting the blame on my lack of talent. It's funny because I've been a singer since I was a child and I've sung for commercials and stage projects throughout my career. The reason why the song was originally cut was because they wanted a soprano and I was an alto so my voice was a lower register than the boys'. Ultimately the producers decided to cut it from the script because they thought that Sarah singing would have seemed too off topic to the plot.
