People probably think that watching the movie was one of the things Celia did when preparing for To Kill a Mockingbird, but she actually didn’t. According to Deadline, Celia said, “I certainly did not go back and watch the movie, because I can still see her little scowl in my mind, and I know what an impression that performance had on my whole life. So I felt like, You must not go back because you’ll just be in a shame spiral, you’ll never be able to do what she did.”

9. She Would Love To Meet Michelle Obama

Celia has gotten the chance to meet lots of cool and interesting people over the years, but there’s still one she would love to add to the list.

Everyone needs a quiet place to go and clear their head. For Celia, that place is usually nature. She enjoys spending time outdoors and she has lots of respect and appreciation for the natural beauty that surrounds her.
