Marano appears on the cover of the Winter 2014/2015 issue of Modern Dog magazine. She talks about playing Ally in Austin & Ally, her dog, and the future.
I see a few things. I won’t be able to do them all at the same time, but I will do them. Number one: I will continue my acting career. I can’t imagine my life without it. Number two: I will go to school. Both my parents are teachers, so it’s important to me. I just graduated from high school this year. My sister was home schooled—and she is the most intelligent, responsible, amazing person I know—but I knew for me I needed to go to regular school. And I know I want to get a degree. Even if I’m 37 years old when it happens. Number three: I want to continue to do as much charity work as possible. We are all very connected on a global level and by getting involved you feel a lot more fulfilled. And number four: I want to write songs and have a music career. I’ve wanted this forever, since I was a little girl.
