“Now, when I’m self-conscious, I’ll do something completely crazy or goofy to get out of my own head – something fun that reminds me of the freedom I felt as a kid before all that happened,” Hough said.

Hough made her film debut at age 11, playing a Hogwarts schoolgirl in the first Harry Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” which was released in 2001.
