Interview: Aria Wallace of “Roxy Hunter”

posted by Nell Minow

Aria Wallace plays Roxy Hunter, a clever young sleuth whose persistance and inquisitiveness sometimes gets her into trouble but often solves mysteries. I interviewed Ms. Wallace via email.

I love the different adventures. The best thing about being an actress is meeting new people, and having fun. For Roxy, I would say definitely solving mysteries!

What makes Roxy such a good detective?

I love how she observes everything. Roxy has studied Sherlock Holmes, and really tries to observe everything to solve the case. I really like how she allows her friends to help too.

What does she need to get better at?

While observing every clue – I think Roxy is a little mischievous. I think she should try not to get into trouble. Roxy tends to get in trouble while on the case.

Who are some of your favorite actors?

I LOVE Reese Witherspoon! I also like Nicole Kidman, Rene Zellweger, Steve Carell, Steve Martin, Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts!

What’s on your iPod?

I love music! Led Zeppelin is my favorite band. I have like every one of
their albums on my iPod. I also love Alicia Keys and her song Fallin’, and Christina Aguilera and her song Hurt. If you looked at my iPod you’d see like a million songs, it’s crazy!

    I think you are the perfect person to play Roxy. She is definately my favorite character. And you are the cutest most adorable little girl when you get angry.
