Daniella Perkins: The 411


Today is the official premier of Red Ruby! We interviewed Ruby herself, played by Dani Perkins, about what it was like to become a vampire—scroll to read what she had to say!

What was your favorite scene to shoot?

I would say the cave scenes...or anyone where I’m crying blood!

How did you get into acting?

I started acting in musical theatre when i was younger, and it evolved from there!

What do you love about being on set?

Working and being able to play a character. This is something really different than my previous role, Ciara on Knight Squad, and it’s been very cool to venture into something new!

What do you hate about being on set?

I love it all, honestly. I can’t imagine doing anything else. If i wasnt acting, I’d try directing. Some people watch TV to escape, but I like to be on set to escape. It’s an amazing way to just get away from it all. Plus you’re surrounded by friends, and constantly making new friends!

Who is a figure from history that you admire/look up to?

Audrey Hepburn! My biggest acting inspiration right now is Jennifer Lawrence. I relate to how goofy and weird she is. She’s so real and grounded, which is why she’s the best in my eyes.

If you could be another character on a Brat show, who would it be and why?

I’d be Morgan on Total Eclipse! Devenity is my sister!

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Still acting. I want to do film. I want to be in a rom-com. I’m obsessed with love...my love life is so awkward, it’s an ongoing love triangle. I’d love to write a movie based on my love life.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not on set or working?

Film YouTube videos.

What is your favorite youtube video that you’ve posted?

I feel like I’ve finally found my style of editing on Youtube. My recent videos from the last two months are really the truest version of myself. Ever since then, my following has been growing because of how real I’ve become and trying to not put up a front.

If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?

North West… I think she has a good life. It’s probably so weird to have Kanye as your dad, I’d love to know what he’s actually like and what he talks about.

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

My family!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

I dont really like sweets...but cofffee maybe?

What’s your favorite ride at Disneyland?


Before we wrap up, can you tell us one last fun fact?

People think im tall but im actually short!

Watch Daniella as Ruby TODAY at 3PM—we’ll see you there!
