1. Sergeant. I adopted my dog, Sergeant, while I was filming MacGyver in Atlanta. It was the best impulse decision I have ever made. Coming from a life of abuse, he has learned to trust me and everyone else on set. He is my little soldier, and he brings everyone around so much joy.

2. '80s music. Takes me to another dimension. David Bowie, Tears for Fears, Prince, Wham! I was born in the wrong generation.

3. Baseball. Growing up in New York, my brother played baseball, so I was always on the field. The New York Yankees is my favorite team, and once I moved to L.A. the Dodgers became my second-favorite team (only because they used to be the Brooklyn Dodgers, of course)!

4. Video Games. I am what you would call a gamer. My first game console was the Sega Saturn. Tomb Raider was my favorite game growing up, along with Crash Bandicoot, and BioShock is my favorite video game series.

5. Wallet Chains. I have been wearing a wallet with a wallet chain every day since I was 10 years old. I don't carry purses, so this is all I need. Also, it makes your outfits look pretty cool.

6. Pineapples. Not just the fruit but everything pineapple: lip balm, decorations, pineapple-print clothing, and shoes, the list goes on. Everyone has completely accepted my love for pineapples and now buys me pineapple-related gifts.

7. Perfume. I love spraying on a good fragrance before I leave or when I get out of the shower. My favorite perfume is Acqua di Gioia by Giorgio Armani.
