Obviously you’ve been a semi-seasoned actress for a while. Did you always want to be in acting?
Ashley Liao: The entertainment industry had always interested me. After I was told that I could not be a princess when I grew up, I was fascinated with the behind-the-scenes of movies and television and from there it took off!

Did you watch Full House growing up?
I did not watch it much growing up. It was not until I auditioned for it that I fell in love with the show.

Who is your favorite character?
Kimmy has always been my favorite! Her spunky personality and clothes, with her hilarious jokes, are some of my favorite things about her.

Did anyone on the show give you advice?
Right before the kissing scene in season 1, Candace gave me some advice to not be nervous about the kiss because we would just have to do it over and over again after. That advice took the pressure off the first kiss because it reminded me that we would have to do it again.

Is there anyone on the show that is most like their character in real life?
Elias Harger, who plays Max, is probably most like his character in real life. He is intelligent, precocious, and clever!

If you went another way, which career would you want? Why?
I would probably choose the medical profession. Medicine has always been something that has interested me as I love having to make decisions quickly and to be able to help people feel better.

Do you take classes on set?
I cannot go to traditional high school and continue to be an actress so I do online school.

What’s your favorite subject?
My favorite subject this year was actually English. I enjoy reading and writing poems, which was what we did most of the year.

Do you get a lot of downtime?
When we are not filming, I do have a little bit of downtime. I still have to do online school and with doing two (advanced placement) classes and three honors classes, I spend much of my time on a computer doing work.

What do you do in your down time?
When I do get downtime, I like to play the guitar or ukulele, play with my dogs, do calligraphy, and try out fun do-it-yourself projects!

What is one thing that you can’t live without?
One thing that I cannot live without is my computer. I do my schoolwork on my computer; my phone is backed up on my computer, and all my old photos are on there too. I feel like if I did not have my computer I would not know whatI would do!

Favorite body product?
My favorite body product/beauty product is probablyHighlight. I love that the “dewy look” is in right now! You can never have too much highlight.

Favorite thing to wear?
My go-to “lazy day” outfit includes my Zara jeans. They are super soft and really stretchy… and I mean stretchy! A comfy shirt from Brandy Melville and cute ankle booties too.

Favorite thing/place to eat?
I love, love, love Chipotle. Not going to lie, I could eat it every day!

Spill it…. who’s your crush?
Well…I have recently watched all of Mikey Murphy’s videos on YouTube and I am pretty sure he is now my celebrity crush. I would probably cry if I met him!
