What food do you wish was calorie-free? “My two guilty pleasures are Mexican food and French fries. I love them both, and they are certainly not calorie-free.”

What unlimited gift card would you love to receive? “I like to travel, and I like to travel well, so a gift card for airfare. It’d better be unlimited.”

What job would you be terrible at? “Oddly enough, because it’s so cliché for an actor, but I think I’d be a terrible waitress. I’d be just awful as far as remembering orders and what goes where. I’d be horrible, which is why I tip really well, because I don’t ever want to be a waitress.”

Which castmate can always make you laugh? “We laugh so much. We really have a good time on set. Thorsten [Kaye, Ridge] is hysterical. Darin [Brooks, Wyatt] is very funny and, of course, Donald [Diamont, Bill] likes to have a big laugh about whatever. The men are all jokers — but the girls like to get down, too.”

What has been one of the most memorable costumes you’ve worn on the show? “Boy, that’s a question for Jen Gareis [Donna]. I would say the funniest was that Santa lingerie getup that I wore last year in scenes with Wyatt, which was very not Katie, but it was actually fun to wear. I thought it was cute.”
