"I was really little. My dad was in the movie Moonwalker and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn't know he could act. I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him.'"
"We would do improv together. He would give us little scenarios. He would say, 'OK, in this scene, you’re going to cry,' and I'd cry on the spot."
When asked about wearing a mask, Paris admits she realizes that her father was only doing this to protect her and give her the chance of a normal childhood.
