GUILTY AT 17: TALKING TO ERIN SANDERSGUILTY AT 17
TALKING TO ERIN SANDERS

Erin Sanders is best known for her role as Quinn on Zoey 101. She captivated audiences with her engaging personality and winning smile. Now she is all grown up and starring in the new Lifetime movie Guilty At 17, which premieres this weekend. 

TVGrapevine recently talked to Erin about her life, career and much more. Below are some of the highlights of our chat.


ONE SMART COOKIE: Erin's career started when she was only nine years old and still in Girl Scouts. One day, she was going to door to door selling cookies with her mom when one of the guys she was talking to said he loved her voice and presentation (she had memorized all the cookie descriptions) and told her that she should consider acting.  Before long, she had signed with her first agent and a star was born!


GROWING UP 101: Zoey 101 was a big growing up experience for Erin because it was filmed during a very formative part of her life. She says that being on the show helped shape her into the woman she is today because it taught her how to have a good work ethic and help her realize her realize acting was her passion. 



She adds that she also loved the fact that she kind of grew up with her fans and that Quinn was able to be a role model. Erin says that to this day, fans come up to her and tell her how much they love Quinn because she wasn't afraid to he herself. She says the entire experience was incredible and she would not trade it for anything. 


GUILTY AT 17: Erin says that her latest movie, Guilty At 17 has a special place in her heart because it is the lead role in a movie. She plays Traci, a girl who  is led to believe her friend was assaulted by a teacher. This leads to a series of events that eventually put her in danger. 


 {sidebar id=8}She says that there were a lot of emotional, crying scenes that left her exhausted, but she feels as if she was able to touch on a topic that is not touched upon enough in society. She feels as if many people don't talk about witnessing such abuse and we need to honor people who have been in these situations. 


WHAT'S NEXT: Now that Guilty At 17 is set to air, Erin is hard at work on some new projects. One of them is called Breaking The Chains,  which focuses on educating and helping people with eating disorders. She hopes the project will allow people suffering from disorders to talk about their feelings openly and realize that they are not alone. TVGrapevine will continue to provide you with information on this project as it becomes available.


PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW: Erin is a certified yoga instructor and teaches classes on the side. She loves it because it makes her feel happy and grounded. She adds that yoga also is a good way for people to feel comfortable and safe in their own bodies. In fact, we had a long discussion about the topic and she even offered me encouragement and advice for when I start my own Centergy (Pilates and yoga mixed with meditation) certification classes  this weekend. 


Thank you to Erin and her team for this interview and be sure to check out Guilty at 17 this weekend on Lifetime. Check your local listings for showtimes.
