Q: Do you believe in Aliens?
Stacie, Miami

A: I’m not really sure if I believe in aliens. I think there might be another life form out there, but I have no idea who or what they are.

Q: If you had the ability (as the aliens on Roswell do) to shapeshift into another form, would you use it, who would you shapeshift into, and why?
Jamie, New Jersey

A: If I had the ability to shapeshift into another life form, I would shapeshift into my cat Abby. I am always curious about what she is thinking and feeling when she does certain things. I think it would be interesting to get into the mind of an animal.

Q: Did you have a comfort item that you used when you were little? Like a blanket or some such thing?
Muriel, Miami

A: I had a blanket that my grandmother made me when I was born that I would say is my comfort item. It had a big picture of Strawberry Shortcake on it that always made me happy.

Q: How did you get discovered to act in a TV show?
K.T., New York

A: I started acting when I was almost 4 years old. At that age it was all about having fun. I heard about Roswell from a friend of mine. I asked my agent to get me an audition, but for some reason the casting director didn’t see me as one of the three girls. The friend who told me about the show knew David Nutter, one of the Executive Producers, and gave him my picture and resume. After eight long, hard auditions I became one of the members of the show.

Q: Hey Shiri. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you weren’t a star and what would you be doing with your life?
Michelle, Chagrin Falls

A: If I weren’t on the show, I would be finishing my education at USC, majoring in either English or Psychology.
Q: Some people believe in soul connections (I myself do.) Do you?
Dominique, New York
