Today, I’m joined by Hayley Orrantia, best known for her role of Erica Goldberg in the ABC comedy series The Goldbergs.
Hayley does more than acting – she also starred in the first series of The X Factor as a member of Lakota Rayne, a country-pop girl group.
She tells me about her journey through fame, what it’s like being on the set of The Goldbergs, and how much being on the show has influenced her life.
We also talk about how Hayley got into acting, how real cooking shows are, and what new projects she has in store for us.
