By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

Harley Quinn Smith made her acting debut at the ripe old age of one in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," which was written and directed by her father, Kevin Smith. She played the infant version of her dad's character, Silent Bob. Since then, she has starred opposite Molly Ringwald in "All These Small Moments" and in the film "Yoga Hosers." She'll be seen next in Quentin Tarantino's star-studded film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," alongside Brat Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie. Smith, 19, also is part of the music group, The Tenth (, which recently released "Dunes." Fans may stay in touch with the Los Angeles-based entertainer via Instagram (

Q. What was the first trip you remember taking as a child?

A. I've apparently been flying since I was an infant, but one of the earliest memories that I can remember the clearest was going to Maui with my parents and grandparents. My parents don't usually travel for pleasure very much, because they have to travel for work so often, so this was one of the rare occasions we went somewhere on an actual no-work vacation. I remember it so fondly. My dad has an insane fear of the ocean, so that was probably the one and only time he's been in the ocean in my lifetime.

Q. Where are your favorite weekend getaways?

A. Always Disneyland. I would spend every day of my life at Disneyland if I could. A lot of my friends and I have annual passes, so we try to go whenever we can. I literally never get tired of it. It's my absolute favorite thing to sleep there, too. The Disney hotels are all so cute and it's the best feeling in the world to wake up at Disney. You wake up surrounded by magic.

Q. Do you stay home during the holidays or go away?


A. My family is always home for Christmas morning, but my grandparents and I do have a tradition of usually going to Hawaii together either the night of Christmas, after all the celebrations, or the day after. It's so funny to go to Hawaii during the holidays, because everyone is just hanging out at the beach in 90 degree weather, while in basically every other place in the United States it's freezing or snowing.

Q. Do you speak any foreign languages?

A. Right now, I am actually in the process of learning sign language, which is something I've wanted to learn for a long time, and it's now finally happening. I'm about to film a movie, in which my character is fluent in ASL, so this is a great excuse to start taking lessons. I'm definitely going to continue with the lessons once the film is over, because it's such a fascinating language.
