We met actress Stefanie Scott, who stars as Lexi Reed on the Disney show "A.N.T. Farm," when she was visiting Planet Hollywood in Manhattan recently.

In the show "A.N.T. Farm" you're a fashionista. Are you into fashion in real life? If so, what is your favorite place to shop?

I am into fashion in real life. Some of my favorite places to shop, I love vintage stores, so I love used clothing. You can buy really fun things. Forever 21, ASOS, places like that.

Does your character relate to someone you once knew?

I think everybody knows a girl kind of like Lexi where she strives for so much and I think she has a lot of big dreams, but she steps on people's toes to get there. I definitely know a lot of people like that. I think deep down inside she really does have a good heart. I just think she shields and she goes around a weird way of showing it.

What kind of impression do you want to leave on your fans?

I want to make sure that everybody knows that kindness is free. I want to make sure people are kind to one another and I think that's something I want to leave an impression on making sure people treat others the way we want to be treated and feel loved, and I think that's how I want to feel, too.

What is it like working for Disney?

It's fun working for Disney. It's been a dream of mine since I was your age. I would watch a show called "Lizzie McGuire" every day and I was obsessed with it and I wanted to be just like her. So now that I get to be on the Disney Channel and have girls like you look up to it. It's a blessing. It's fun.

What was your favorite subject when you were in fourth grade?

I loved English the best. I love writing and reading. I love writing stories and music, poems. I love anything creative. I love art.

We've heard you like to sing. Do you like to dance, too?

I do like to dance. That's how I got started. I did dance competitions and school plays and theater and stuff. I want to do Broadway in a few years and so I can't wait to start singing and dancing together again.

What is your favorite role out of all the characters that you played?

I definitely say the "A.N.T. Farm" was a fun one. I did a movie called "Flipped" you guys might have seen. It was about a young love story in the '60s, which is really cool because we got to wear '60s fashion.

What was it like having Zendaya on the set with you?

It was so fun. I've known Zendaya since we did our first commercial together for iCarly toys when we were 12. So I've known her for a very long time and it was really fun being reunited again and we worked together on "Frenemies."
