“I was a theater nerd. Of course, we at the time didn’t call ourselves theater nerds! We thought we were cool,” Kelly teased. “Unfortunately for me, I was the kid in musical theater that really was an actress but I couldn’t sing so I never got any good parts in the musical theater productions. The straight plays I was always the lead, but the musical theater, I was usually hanging lights and playing a man.”

“I enjoy watching competitive gymnastics at the Olympics but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I’d join an Olympic team!” Kelly jokingly explained. “It’s something I believe that I enjoy more watching than I would enjoy participating in.”
