Spending quality time with family and choosing her family over work is something she will never regret.

  • She always...

She always reads a book before she goes to bed.

  • She would never

She would never go to bed without washing her face.

  • First Role

Brenda's first job ever was a commercial for a Little Caesars Pizza while she was four or five years old.

  • Star-struck moment

The only time she has ever been truly was when she met Kobe Bryant, as she was a huge fan of the Lakers

She was at the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere, and Bryant's wife Vanessa came up to her and said their daughters loved the show.

  • If she could live anywhere, where would she live?

She would probably live in France.

  • The music she has on repeat currently

Honest to goodness, a collection of Sesame Street songs for her son. But before that, it was Adele.
