QUESTION: Have you had to take lessons to increase your talking speed? I can't imagine going as fast as Michelle does!
SUTTON: I haven't had lesson except just being around Amy because she talks faster than anyone I ever met. It's very hard to talk so quickly and to remember your lines at the same time because your brain has to stay in pace with your mouth, which is very challenging. I try to be completely off book as fast I can so that the words just come to me. I always try to learn my lines really fast.
QUESTION: It's so cool your brother in real life is going to play your brother on the show! Are you excited to work with him?
SUTTON: Yeah, we've already shot two episodes together, and it was awesome! It was the first time we've ever worked together as adults. It's the first time we've ever done scenes together and acted with each other. It could have been a disaster, but it was awesome and wonderful, and I hope he comes back to Paradise soon!
QUESTION: Bunheads always make me giggle, but it also makes me cry some times because you are so amazing at acting! What do you think is the most moving scene from Bunheads so far?
SUTTON: I would probably say the “Oh, captain, my captain” scene.
QUESTION: Be honest -- what percentage of Amy's (pop) cultural references do you need to look up?!
SUTTON: I probably have to look up at least 25% of them.
QUESTION: Hi Sutton, I absolutely love you. You're a big role model for me. My reason to dream bigger and maybe get on a Broadway stage one day. My question is, what got you into doing haiku Mondays?
SUTTON: At Anything Goes, on stage right behind the curtain, one of our stagehands would do a haiku every day on a dry erase board, and I had an entrance on stage right, so I would read it every day. So I started to write a haiku every day. And then I did one on Twitter and it happened to be a Monday, so I was just learning what hashtagging was. I hashtagged #haikumonday so people picked up on it!
QUESTION: What's it like working with Kelly Bishop? I've been a fan of hers for years!
SUTTON: I was a fan of hers for years as well. It is an honor and joy to work with her. She's the real deal. One of the best compliments you can give when working with someone is that it's easy to work with them. And it's easy to work with her. It's just fun.
QUESTION: Do you have any audition/show superstitions?
SUTTON: I used to have a lot of superstitions, but they were stressing me out. If I forgot to do something or whatever, it was psyching me out. So my new superstition is to have no superstitions.
QUESTION: Other than theatre what do you miss the most about NYC?
SUTTON: I miss being able to walk everywhere. I miss the energy of the city. I miss the shopping. I miss my favorite restaurants. And I miss my friends. But I really do love L.A.
