Pet: Two beagles named Roxy and Benny

Couple I stanned: Michelle and Barack Obama 

Teen show I loved: I wasn’t loyal to any specific show growing up.

How I want to change the world: I just want people to be kinder to one another. That’s pretty basic; I’m aware. But since that is entirely up to 7 billion people whose minds I can’t encroach upon, I only want to make positive impacts in the lives of the people I meet or connect with. 

How my generation will change the world: By welcoming and engaging in conversation that past generations have been too hesitant to touch upon. 

Dream role: I’ll know it when I see it. I know Charlie Kaufman could write a great one. 

I’d star in any movie with: Paul Dano

If I weren’t acting, I’d be: Studying political science at a college on the East Coast or pursuing a job in the medical field. 

Dream dinner guest: My grandfather. I’m told we share a lot of the same qualities but we never got the chance to meet!

Ortega’s first book, It’s All Love, is available now.
