Of her role, Carson — who attended St. Hugh Catholic School and graduated from Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart — said that Evie started out as vain, but realizes what matters “is who she is on the inside.”

Carson sure is busy — and in demand.

While various celebrities got naked for July 4, 24 year old Carson flew from Florida to D.C. to sing The National Anthem on at the U.S. Capitol in a gorgeous black J Mendel gown. “Happy Birthday America” she later tweeted.

 Next up for the talented young lady: An appearance on “Live With Kelly & Ryan” July 19.
