Your character Katie has a large arc in this story. Was that something that intrigued you, the idea of there being so many layers to her….?
Julianne Hough: Definitely. Katie has a huge arc, and I think that’s what I found fascinating about her. I knew that it was going to be a challenge to play guarded and mysterious. I kept trying to think about keeping her interesting with those things still in mind, and likable enough that Alex would even consider falling in love with her, and vice versa. There was a lot of layers to her. She’s a fighter and that’s one thing I really loved about her, and behind every fighter there’s often someone who’s a little bit broken. I think that’s why I resonated with Katie. Katie is not who she wants to be and not who she knows she can be. She has to change her situation. That idea of redemption is so appealing. Katie is almost two different people. She goes go from being super guarded to falling completely in love with somebody she just met.
