Digest: Was it tough coming in as a recast for Erin Sanders?
Marano: It was tough in the sense that no one ever likes to come into a recast role. It's difficult knowing that someone lost their job. That sucks. But it's a business and so far, everyone's been trying to make it work out. I know that for an audience member, it's probably hard to see someone new in the role, but viewers have been responding well, so that's good.

Digest: What grade are you in now?
Marano: I'm actually in college. I started a program at the community college where you could take classes that count as high school and college credit, but I finished high school, so now I'm getting my associates degree. Then I'll transfer to a USC school, where I'll come in as a junior. I don't know what I'll major in, though.
