Taylor said, “My dream was to be on Broadway. My parents didn’t even know what Broadway was.” When she was 11, she landed the role of Sharon Percy in the original Broadway production of Billy Elliot.
Her parents kept her in school as she went on to explain, “They definitely thought school was more important, but at the same time, they didn’t want to ruin the opportunity for me.”
