After being asked by Rochelle if her father helped coach her ahead of her singing performance in the film, the actress responded: "No, he's so chilled out."

"My parents are so supportive but they're also so laid back. They are not pushy at all and when I was younger I used to hate it when they wanted me to be at school for a certain amount of time, I used to hate that, but now I look back and I'm grateful. They wanted me to be a kid.
