Here’s 5 fast facts about Ava Connolly!
She was very excited to receive her “real actor” card!
The most exciting day for me so far in the entertinment industry was the day I got on the computer and checked my SAG status and I was finally SAG eligible. I had been checking it every day for two months. I couldn’t believe it so I started yelling mom mom and she came running because she thought something was wrong. We went out to dinner to celebrate !!
She was starstruck by a famous Bollywood actress — who gave her lots of chocolates!
I was on set of the Bollywood movie Zero and I was starstruck by Ms. Anushka Sharma. She was so sweet to me and she’s beautiful and she brought me this really good chocolate candy every day!!!
Her most cringe-worthy moment is totally relatable — and has a VERY happy ending.
My most embarrassing moment in real life was when I told my mom I had a boyfriend in 3rd grade. But I never told him. He had no idea I liked him. So my mom came to school for our Christmas party and she met him and said “oh your Ava’s boyfriend” and he was embarrassed and said I don’t know what you are talking about. My face was hot it was so red from being embarrassed but the good part was after Christmas break he was my real boyfriend — well as real as third grade boyfriends can be!
She’s hecka smart.
People would be surprised to know I love looking up rare words and I’m kinda obsessed with vocabulary words people aren’t familiar with. Like pulchritudinous!!!! I found it last week. It’s pretty cool to learn rare words. Oh and I love entomology.
She has turned down good money just to not eat this one thing.
I refuse to eat green beans. My sister offered me $20 to try one but those things look so gross no way will I ever try one.
