She is only 21, but Amer­i­can ac­tor

El­iz­a­beth Gillies

(right) boasts of mak­ing her Broad­way de­but at the age of 15. Gillies, who has mostly been seen in com­edy films or TV shows, says she loves the com­edy genre and is not afraid of be­ing type­cast. “I think com­edy might be the eas­i­est genre for me to play. I like the tim­ing of it and I am re­ally com­fort­able do­ing comic roles. Hav­ing said that, I am not afraid of be­ing type­cast or any­thing. I do want to try out other gen­res as well. I would love to do a twisted role,” she says. Gillies will soon be seen in the up­com­ing Amer­i­can sit­com Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. Although the show is about rock and roll, Gillies tells us she sang a song by pop­u­lar RnB artist Aretha Franklin in her au­di­tion. “I know it wasn’t a typ­i­cal rock num­ber, but there was some­thing about the way I sang it that con­vinced the show’s mak­ers that I can sing that genre too,” she says.
