GLITTER: When did you first start acting?
LOURIZA: I started acting when I started having an interest in musical theatre around the age of eight. I first started with singing and dancing-I guess acting came in with a natural interest since they all kind of go hand-in-hand. I was constantly taking classes for all three classes and eventually wanted to take the acting side more seriously, which led me into doing film and TV!
GLITTER: What’s it like being a fresh new face to the Nickelodeon network?
LOURIZA: It’s so great to be apart of a network that really caters to a younger audience. I feel so proud to be part of a show that I am able to show the whole family-especially having a lot of younger cousins!
GLITTER: What’s it like acting on Nickelodeon’s Make It Pop? Who do you play?
LOURIZA: I play Jodi, the fierce and sassy choreographer and fashionista of the group! I love being in a comedy, because the main intention is to make people laugh- and that’s literally the best job in the world!
GLITTER: How alike or dislike your character, Jodi, are you?
LOURIZA: I’m similar to Jodi because we both love the dance style hip-hop! She and I also share the same appreciation for sarcasm. Jodi and I are different when it comes to fashion- as a fashionista she plans all of her outfits and I’m more of a jeans and cute shirt kind of girl!
GLITTER: Who inspires you the most?
LOURIZA: Everybody and anybody who works hard at their craft, work and/or their family.
GLITTER: What show are you addicted to at the moment? We can’t get enough of BBC’s Sherlock on Netflix.
LOURIZA: I’m loving ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat!
GLITTER: What’s your favorite dish to cook? Could you share the recipe with us?
LOURIZA: My uncle’s stuffed mushrooms! Although I’m debating whether or not it’s my favorite to cook or to eat…
GLITTER: What’s your favorite thing about the spring season?
LOURIZA: No more snow!!
GLITTER: Favorite fashion trend?
LOURIZA: Ripped jeans with cute heels.
