I try to make as much time as I can for R5, because I love it so much. Ultimately, that’s what’s going to be around forever in my life. Because with ‘Austin & Ally,’ our season is going to end, and then that will be it. But R5 will always be there.
What did I know about lawyering? I just thought it was another way to stay in Austin for another three years.
