Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

Based out of California, Jaylen Barron is one of the stars of the Starz series, “Blindspotting,” which is based on the 2018 film of the same name. The actress said she had a fairly chill attitude about what she could and couldn’t do during this pandemic. “I really feel like the pandemic gave me a chance to grow and get to know myself more,” said Barron. “I’ve discovered things about myself that a year and a half ago I wouldn’t even think I would like or dislike. Spending time outside, whether taking walks or eating, has become a continuous routine. I’ve also started listening to different meditation music.” Fans may stay in touch Barron, who also starred in the Netflix series “Free Rein,” on Twitter and Instagram.

Q: How have you dealt with all the travel restrictions, especially last year?

A: I have come to accept the times we are in. I don’t like to force anything, especially if it has to do with flying, so if it isn’t my time to travel and go to different places in this moment in my life, I am content with that. I love traveling, but timing is everything. So, when it’s time to start going places again, I’ll be ready.

Q: If you had travel plans and had to cancel, where were they to?

A: I was planning a trip to London to visit my “Free Rein” castmates. I was looking forward to enjoying the city again. Hopefully, I can make it happen soon.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?


A: So far, Hawaii! I recommend going to a restaurant in Waikiki called Sam’s Kitchen. It’s small and well put together right by the water. The food is delicious and the people who work there are so friendly. I can’t wait to go back on my next visit.

Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?

A: I visited my family in Jalisco, Mexico, and I loved it. I was surrounded by caring family members, food and parties. What more could a girl want?

Q: What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
