The Single Parents star recalls in an interview with Net-a-Porter magazine working on The CW series from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., five days a week. "Everyone has their own journey, especially in their early twenties when they're just figuring out who they are," she says. "Because of the success of (Gossip Girl), I was put in a place where that journey was sped up. I had to figure it out quickly and with not a completely developed mind to discern between what's real and what's not, who I can trust and who I can't. I got really lucky and was able to very early on find and stay friends with people who are true."
