She shared her story on Reddit and did a q&a session with the public. When asked about which movie was her favourite she said, "I'd have to say it's a toss up between Goonies and Hook. Goonies we got paid to go down waterslides, and on Hook just the sets were amazing, and the cast and the crew and I mean - we would be laughing every day."
