Kelli first raced onto our screens as Bree Davenport the bionic teenager with super fast speed in the series Lab Rats, and recently she raced to Melbourne to meet some of her Aussie fans.
Thanks to all the fans who submitted questions, here are Kelli’s answers:
From Amber, Lizzy & Georgina: What it is like being on Disney Channel?
It’s awesome, we’re like a family! Everyone loves each other and is accepting of one another. I feel very lucky to work with such amazing people!
From Chloe, Danni, Eleisha, Kaylah, Jaz, Inana and Ella: What’s your favourite thing about working on Disney Channel and being in Lab Rats?
Playing a superhero! When I was younger I wanted to have super powers and now I love the fact that fans can watch the show and the superhero is me! I also love learning about all the special effects that are used and seeing them come together on the show.
From Jordon, Imiy, Catherine, Josh, Chloe, Mercedez, Carmyn, Aysha, Eva, Madison, Ashleigh and Natasha: What is it like being on set with the boys, do you get along outside of the show?
At first I was nervous about working with so many boys, because I grew up with a sister. But the guys immediately made me feel welcome, and have become like my older brothers. We hang-out outside of work all the time.
From Isabelle, Lexiarna, Rebecca, Bella, Victoria, Sienna, Amy, Chrystele, Amber, Lilia and Bryleah: What or who inspired you to become an actress?
I’ve been dancing since a young age and have always loved performing. A talent scout came to one of my shows and I started exploring acting. It was a natural progression for me and another way to express myself artistically.
From Maika and Keely: What inspires and motivates you in life?
Making my fans happy! I know that sounds cheesy but it’s true. It’s amazing to think that what we do brings happiness to people and it’s so rewarding to see the smiles on their faces
From Dakota, Julia, Bailey, Jess, Aimee, Sophie , Zsanae, Tia, Tammin, Alanah and Jayden: What was your fave episode of Lab Rats to film?
I have a few. One of my favourites was the episode called ‘Quarantine’ where I caught a virus which made my muscles weak. TJ (who plays Leo) had to carry me around! It was great to be able to try physical comedy which I hadn’t done previously. TJ and I were trying so hard not to laugh!
From Britany, Hannah and Isabella: What’s your fave thing to do when you’re not filming?
I like to hang out with my friends and my sister, go shopping or hit the beach. Nothing crazy!
From Berenice, Amy, Monique, Arabella, Sammy, Heather, Tessa, Sydney, Holly, Ryan, Natalie, Elia, Zali and Tiana: If you could have one bionic power, what would it be?
Invisibility! I’d be playing tricks on people all the time. That would be so much fun.
From Colby, Stefani, Jasmine, Eryn, Cynthia, Isabella, Vrindha, Noah, Jess and Angel: What would you advise kids who want to become actors?
Always give 110%. Work hard and believe in yourself. It can be hard, and there will be obstacles along the way, but if you give it your best and work hard, it will pay off.
From Emily, Hannah and Lauren: Any last words for all your fans in NZ and Australia Kelli?
A massive Thank you! Spencer told me Aussie and Kiwi fans are amazing and very supportive, but I’m blown away by your love and support. Thank you so much, you’re amazing!
