You play Hayley Heinz on ABC Family’s The Fosters. You
are a member of the dance team on the show, but you are
a dancer in real life, too, right? Tell us about your dance
I am a dancer in real life! My mom put me in ballet when
I was two, and then when I got a little older I started jazz,
contemporary, tap, hip hop, and pointe. I have not stopped
since. Dance is my first love!
How about the dances you have to learn for the show?
Do you meet often for practice, like a real-life high school
Yes, we definitely feel like a team! And we all get along
really well, which is a little different from how the team is
portrayed on the show. We have several days of rehearsal
together before we film the dance scenes. Each rehearsal
usually lasts around 8 hours!
On the show, your character is good friends with Mariana
and dates Jesus. Some fans call her the “bad girl” of the
show. She definitely does some manipulative things, but do
you place her as a “bad girl,” a “good girl,” or somewhere
She is definitely not a “good girl,” though I wouldn’t
necessarily label Hayley as a “bad girl” either. She just
manipulates her way into getting exactly what she wants. Is
that always bad? 😉
What is your favorite part of being on set for The Fosters?
My favorite part would have to be working with such
genuine and talented people. Between the cast, crew,
directors, writers, and producers, I leave the set every day
Who is your best friend on set? Do you hang out with
anyone outside of filming?
I love them all. I can’t choose one best friend, haha. I hang
out with Amanda Leighton and Jordan Rodrigues the most.
Decision time: If you, Caitlin, could date any of the
characters on the show, who would you pick? Wyatt,
Brandon, or stay true to character and pick Jesus?
I really love Wyatt right now. He is an attentive and patient
boyfriend. It doesn’t get better than that. OH, and that
hair… yes, please!
Do you have any special skills or hobbies we don’t know
Sports. I think I’m secretly a tomboy. I love basketball,
softball, and soccer. And I’m surprisingly good at them.
Describe your perfect day, from waking up to going to bed.
I’d start with a LARGE cup of coffee, go for a morning hike
with my best girlfriends, film all day, have dinner with my
family, watch a cheesy romantic movie, and drink sleepytime
tea before going to bed.
If acting could take you to one place in the world, where
would you want to go? What would you want to do while
you were there, and who would you take with you?
Greece! I would reenact Mamma Mia with my mom, haha! I
am dying to go to Greece.You describe yourself as a coffee addict. What is your
favorite coffee drink? Favorite café?
I love black coffee! Sometimes I’ll add a pack of Stevia for a
sweeter taste. LA has the cutest cafés. Some of my favorites
are Aroma, Intelligentsia, and Lamill.
Do you have any upcoming projects that we should look out
Yes! I have two movies in the works. I can’t say too much
yet, but they are both very exciting and totally different.
Keep an eye out next year!
