Full name? Jillian Kate Weingart
Where you were born/raised? Mostly suburbs... Crystal lake area
Your position/role within the SPIKE HEELS family? I'm playing Georgie!
How would you describe your character? Georgie is a firecracker. She's way smarter than she looks... She's tough, but sensitive, and she sticks up for herself. As Edward puts it... "She makes Godzilla look like a Barbie doll!"
In 5 words, how would you describe SPIKE HEELS? Witty, hilarious, sexy, scotch-y, and Jehovah's Witness-y.
How would you describe Theresa's writing? It's very natural and intense. Everything has a wonderful and natural build or swell. It's like riding a wave... Once you understand one relationship, another relationship gets cloudy and you have to reevaluate everything.
What's your favorite kind of shoe? I can always be found wearing something with a heel. I like the way they sound on floors... That click sound can be so satisfying.
Who would play you in the Lifetime movie of your life? Emma Stone
Special hidden talent? Sarcasm
Something you're REALLY bad at? Sarcasm
Favorite Chicago neighborhood? West town!
Current local show you've been recommending to friends? Keys of the Kingdom at Stage Left.

Pop culture guilty pleasure? I'm a closet Ghost Adventures addict.
Three things you can't live without? Wine, goat cheese, and pedicures.
"I'll never understand why…" I can never keep my house clean or house plants alive :)
