When asked how she handles being dialogue-heavy, she noted that it isn't much of an issue for her. "Honestly, I've always been really good at memorizing dialogue. I run my lines as many times as I can before getting on stage and I put in the preparation," she said.
Pullos had kind words about Nancy Lee Grahn, who plays her on-screen mother Alexis Davis. "I'm so lucky that I've had Nancy as a role model to watch while I was growing up because she is so talented," she said.
Regarding her daily motivations, she said, "What motivates me the most is the feeling that I get when I'm working. I am in my element when I am on stage, and I want to feel that way all the time."
For Pullos, a career-defining moment was when she found out that she had booked the role in the hit ABC daytime drama General Hospital.
In 2015, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for "Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series" for her acting work in General Hospital. "That was so fun. That was the most exciting thing that has probably ever happened to me. I was in a nail salon when the nominations were announced and I had to go to my car because I was crying," she said.
On being an actress in the digital age, especially at a time when streaming services are so popular, Pullos said, "I think it's great, honestly. I did a Netflix series, The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia, and that was a lot of fun. The digital age is awesome because it's providing more opportunities for actors. It opens the door up for so many possibilities."
Regarding the title of the current chapter of her life, she responded, "Rediscovery of Myself."
For young and aspiring actors, she said, "Work so hard. Stay motivated, get out there, take classes, meet people, and do your thing. You need to work super hard in this industry, and if this is what you want, you need to go for it."
On her dream collaboration partners in the acting world, she shared that her dream would be to someday work with Academy Award winners Natalie Portman and Angelina Jolie. "Closer, starring Natalie Portman, is my favorite movie in the universe," she admitted. "I was Natalie Portman's character for Halloween."
Speaking of Halloween, she expressed that her character, Molly, dressing up as the iconic Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RGB) on General Hospital was just the "coolest thing."


She revealed that her heritage is half Greek. "I am half Greek on my father's side. My dad has been learning the language for years," she said. "You can always tell by the name," she said with a sweet laugh.
In her spare time, she shared that she enjoys doing Pilates, watching TV, and hanging out with her best friend. "I enjoy Pilates even though it takes up a lot of time," she said. "My circle consists of one best friend and also my cat. Also, I love my baby niece more than anything in the entire world."
Pullos defined the word success as "being able to do what she loves every single day, that's my goal." "I want to work consistently all day, every day," she said.
For her fans and supporters, she concluded, "I love you guys so much. I've come to know a lot of you, and I wouldn't be here without your love and support. It does not go unnoticed."
