Monique Coleman/Taylor McKessie #6: "Come on everybody, get up and dance!"

:love:The thread to fulfil all your Monique & Taylor needs:love:
Taylor is protrayed as highly intelligent, mature and independent, with a sophisticated flare in her and an extensive vocabulary that make her out to be a "business-woman-type". She's a bit snobby, when first seen, and has a fiery temper. She always speaks her mind. She's kind of cynical when it comes to boys and has a passion for anything having to do with science, politics, and math. It is stated that she's extremely efficient and is seen to be sentimental at times. She's also very determined and would do anything for her friends. She may also have a photographic memory, seeing as she remembers the school lunch specials. She loves the feeling of being in control. Taylor's dream is to become like the women she's influenced by, such as Frida Kahlo, Oprah Winfrey, Sandra Day O'Connor, Madame Curie, Jane Goodall and Eleanor Roosevelt, to name a few. And to do so she keeps her gifted mind in tacted and walks the halls with all the ambition and confidence in her body, making her very well respected in her school. Never the less, Taylor's come a long way from her early days of staying in the classroom with her own "species". She's transformed from a stuck up brainiac to a wonderful friend with a fierce way of tackling situations and the love of staying true to herself.


"Ugh, behold the zoo animals heralding the new year. How tribal."

Ms. Darbus: That'll be 15 minutes for you as well, Mr. Danforth. Count 'em!
Taylor: That might be difficult for Chad, since he probably can't count that high.

Chad: All right. Then we're on a go mode for lunch period. Exactly 12:05.
Taylor: Yes, Chad. We're a go. But we're not Charlie's Angels, okay?
Chad: I can dream, can't I?

Gabrilla Montez: How well do you know Troy Bolton?
Taylor: Troy? Well, I don't consider myself an expert on that particular sub-species. But, unless you know how to speak cheerleader, as in..."Ohmygosh, isn't Troy Bolton just the hottie superbum?"

Taylor McKessie: [about Sharpay] That girl's got more moves than an octopus in a wrestling match.
Chad Danforth: [about Troy] Nah. He knows how to swim.

[to Troy]: I don't recall you mentioning the boss is such a creep!"

[to Gabriella]: Honey, two minutes is being late. But an hour? Is approaching a felony. Just because Troy's a nice guy, doesn't mean he's immune to boy disease."

My older sister has ten rules about boy behaviour. And nine of them involve boys forgetting things they should never forget, like dinner dates.

May I get you a cup of tea, Mr. Fulton?

Taylor: Don't ask questions, we're leaving!
Gabriella: Is this about Troy?
Taylor: Hey, that's a question!

Taylor McKessie: [to Chad] Oh, honey. If that's what you call an invitation, you'll be dancing with yourself.

Chad Danforth: So, um, hey, I was kinda maybe wondering if you'd, you'd maybe go with me.
Taylor McKessie: Oh, hey Chad. They have tuna surprise on the menu. It's good. REALLY good.
Troy Bolton: Dude.
Chad Danforth: Taylor, hey, I'm asking you to prom.
Taylor McKessie: Oh, I'm sorry, I can't hear you 'cause it's so loud in here.

"As an African American actress there are people who have been staples in my life that opened a door that I can walk through. I hope that I can have that impact."

"When I get recognized, every time feels like the first time."

"I love the idea that somebody is going to compare me to my character or think that I am like my character when they see me. I feel like that is a role that I am willing to fulfill. I think it is important for girls to see movies where it is not all just about 'the boy' or it's simply being about 'the relationship' or 'Am I pretty enough?' or 'Am I cute enough?'. Here [the focus] is something that has to do with 'Am I talented enough?' or 'Am I smart enough?'. I love that. It is a big responsibility but it's exciting."

"High School Musical is definitely the best thing that's happened to my career and I walked away with great friends from it. "

"I was babysitting the night High School Musical premiered last year.('06) I watched with the kids and we sang along to the lyrics. I was making $12 an hour."

"My character, Taylor McKessie, is a little bit brighter in the math and science department than I am... okay, a lot.

Sweet! I've been gone from here for a week (spring break). Thanks 4 the new thread. Here's a pic of Monique from when she went to see Corbin on Broadway a few days ago.

I'll post a Corbin/Monique photo in the Corbin/Monique thread.

I'd noticed you hadn't been around, hope you enjoyed your spring break and welcome back! :D Thanks for bringing the pics over too. We were totally gushing in the Wildcats thread :lol:

Full Hearts 03-24-2010 11:15 PM

Aww did Momo go as well :love: I'm not surprised, the woman is like everywhere :lol: She better be careful or she's gonna get a rep for being a socialite :lol:

I don't think she'll get that rep. I think she has too much self respect to go that low. Look at what happened to Lindsay Lohan.

heartunprepared 03-26-2010 02:13 PM

I was joking love ;) I was just making reference to the massive volume of events that Monique makes appearances at. And even so, it is the media who attaches the negative connotation to the term 'socialite'; I didn't mean it in that way at all - Lindsay Lohan was never a socialite, she just partied a bit too hard.

WhereverYouAre_ 03-26-2010 02:34 PM

Monique is definitely all in there. She gets to go to all the awesome events! :D
