Hell’s Kitchen is my hometown. I was born at Lenox Hill Hospital.
I loved acting ever since I was four years old. I’m named after Stella Adler who was a famous acting teacher. My mom was a theatre actress. My dad – he’s an amazing dancer, chef, and musician.

I love to make people feel things.

It wasn’t just like some little LA band. This was a big, big deal. As I prepared for the role, I got to know them...Read Full Story
I think the best thing to do is to surround yourself with positive people; people that have a good energy and want to live life and smile. When you spend so much time around people that aren’t lifting you up or making you feel like these things are possible, it’s a waste of everyone’s time. It’s not a good feeling. Surround yourself with people that you have fun with, you can go on adventures with, you can hang out with. Not just go out to a nightclub, but go to the beach. Go on a hike in...Read Full Story
