Octavia recently opened up about choosing to be a part of an ensemble cast for Red Band Society instead of taking on a leading role.

“I have the prize in the Cracker Jack box. I don’t need to be the prize. Big distinction. Big difference,” Octavia expressed (via Khou). “I like the fact that it really is about (the kids) and their journey and you have these adult characters who kind of keep them within boundaries.”

FYI: Octavia is wearing a Tadashi Shoji dress on Late Night. She’s wearing an Anne Klein dress on Meredith‘s show.
