We gave you Part 1 of our interview with Sofia Black D’Elia (Tea) yesterday, and now, on to Part 2! The lovely Sofia opened up about her future acting plans, her (lack of) hidden talents, and why kids should totally listen to their parents (seriously).
Wetpaint.com: So a few things about you. So if you weren’t acting, what would you be doing?
Sofia Black D’Elia: I hope I never have to find that out.
What sort of role are you looking to do next?
It’s funny. I would really like to do comedy actually, if I could. But I’m really open to anything and if I could do any role, one that challenges me would be good.
Are you looking into any particular medium, like movies or stage or whatever?
Film more than anything else is what I’m looking into at this moment but that can change at any time. I’m really just excited to take on any character that I can.
Cool. On to the important stuff: What is your best going out song?
As of recently, I’ve been listening to Lupe Fiasco while I’m getting ready.
What’s your best “setting the mood” song?
When we asked Ron Mustafaa this question, he asked ‘what kind of mood’...
I was just about to ask that! What kind of mood?
I would say, “Muse” by Radiohead.
What’s the embarrassing song on your iPod?
I would have to go with the entire Jesse McCartney album.
What’s your favorite piece of clothing?
I have this T-shirt that was my brother’s like three years ago but I wear it to bed almost every night. Nothing makes me feel more comfortable.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
My dad gives me a lot of really great advice. I don’t know if I can pick one really specific thing but I would just say, listen to your parents because as I got older, I started to realize more and more how right they were.
Awww... that’s so sweet. You have to send him a link to this interview!
(Laughs) I don’t know.
Do you have any hidden talents?
No. I wish. I can’t play an instrument, I can’t write with my toes, I can’t cook.
Really? After all the singing and dancing this season, we’re kinda expecting that every member of the cast could also be rocking Glee.
No, unfortunately. It seems like everyone has these great talents — Rachel [Thevenard] is a singer, and Danny [Flaherty] plays the ukulele, so does Britne [Olford]. And James is a boxer. I can’t do anything!
What’s your favorite TV show, other than Skins?
My favorite television shows are not on air anymore unfortunately. I grew up being in love with Friends and then Arrested Development became my favorite of all time. And then I was addicted to Lost, like hardcore. Right now, the one show that I really really love on television is Mad Men.
Do you have any guilty pleasure TV shows?
I don’t think I do actually...hmmm...
I don’t think Mad Men counts.
No, I don’t think Mad Men is a guilty pleasure. It’s just a pleasure. I don’t think I do. In my apartment right now, I don’t have a DVR or anything like that, so I have to watch TV when it’s actually on, cause you have to be there and it’s hard for me to remember to have to do that. So the only television I really watch, and I’ve been like this since I was a kid, is SportsCenter. I just have it on in the background constantly.
So now we’re going to dig deep into your romantic life. What was your first kiss?
I haven’t thought about that in a while. I think my first kiss was, however you are in the 7th Grade. We were playing Manhunt and I had my first kiss with the boy that was good at basketball in my middle school.
What was your worst date?
Awww... okay... I can’t think of one.
That’s good. And unusual.
I guess I’ve been treated right.
Glad to hear it! So are you currently single or is there someone special?
Ah...I don’t know.
So real quick, is there anything you want to say to the fans?
Thank you. And we love you. And with a show like ours, I think we appreciate our fans almost more than anyone else could ever possibly appreciate fans. In a whirlwind of people who had so many negative comments, we really clung to the people who stuck with us and supported us. We cannot say thank you enough.
