In an essay published in Teen Vogue, on Tuesday, Romano detailed the “pitfalls of early-onset fame” and how she strived to be a “triple threat.”

The actress, who in 2004 starred as Belle in “beauty and the Beast” on Broadway, said that she started acting at 6-years-old, a time in which she is described as “when most children are in primary school and learning to socialize with their colleagues.”

Romano said that they “had a couple of friends of my own age and does not have the ability to communicate my emotions effectively due to my uncertainties with different. That was my full-time job and a constant concern of mine.”

“Nothing had prepared me for the fame and the responsibilities that are on tv screens everywhere,” she wrote. “I was working full days and would go home and be guided in a different subject each night. The idea of a day with a college in the life was my biggest fantasy. I would watch teen movies and be intensely jealous of “normal” children, the feeling, in my moodiest, as an outsider.”

She said that she left Hollywood after “the’Even Stevens,’ which ran from 2000 to 2003, had ended, and on the way to college. When she felt ” like a misfit,” she went on to Broadway where she claims she despised.

“I was very critical for my youth, which fueled my desire to prove everyone wrong. I was a little bit harder edges, binge-drank more on loud nightclubs, and began to accept the transient nature of love, sex and friendship,” Romano wrote.

It was at that time, “she started to flirt with other methods of self-destruction” and said that she tried to scratch her skin with her nails, as she “was too scared to use a knife.”

“I chickened out, and to be honest the feeling that I had failed a number of important race to win the trophy for ‘most tragic, beautiful girl,” the actress admitted.
