Avery Kristen Pohl's New Year's Resolutions


Avery stated, “I don’t think I set any particular resolutions for this year; however, I am always trying to have new experiences, travel to new places, and grow as a person and an artist.”


Favorite Mottos to Live By

On her favorite mottos to live by, she shared, “One day at a time.”


How Avery Kristen Pohl Defines Success

 “That is very tricky! I think success to me at this point in my life is an internal

acceptance. Circumstances around you can always change so knowing who you are and what you want is important. I don’t think success can be a certain dollar amount or grade or job title or number on the scale if you aren’t happy with yourself and the people you choose to surround yourself with.”


Favorite Series to Binge-watch


Her favorite series to binge are “Schitt’s Creek” and “Friends.” “Those are probably my most-watched series,” she admitted.


Favorite movies


Pohl’s all-time favorite movie is “Mean Girls.”

“I have watched it an embarrassing number of times. I know every joke and still laugh out loud. It takes a really great script and performance for something to stay funny even when the element of surprise is gone,” she said.

“I also really enjoy ‘The Favourite,’ ‘My Cousin Vinny,’ and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” she added.

Avery's Favorite Music

When asked about her favorite music, she disclosed, “Right now, I have Noah Kahan’s new album on repeat! My musical taste is a bit all over the place. I would say alternative music from 2013 is probably still my favorite (if I had to get specific).”

Dream Acting Partners

She listed Viola Davis and Margot Robbie as her dream acting partners in the entertainment business.


On her favorite hobbies, she shared, “I really like to stay active in whatever way I can. Now that I am not in school, I have really enjoyed reading again. I didn't always have the time so noe that I do it it has been a fun thing to go back to.

Any Alternate Career Choice

If Pohl weren’t in the entertainment business, she noted that she would probably work in either real estate or the medical industry.
