WILLA HOLLAND, 21
Profession: Actress in the CW series Arrow.
Obsession: Playing the ukulele.
Why the ukulele? When I moved to Vancouver to film Arrow, I had nothing to do on my days off. A friend said, "Get a ukulele. If you can't pick it up, then you've just wasted 30 bucks. Big deal."
When I started, I thought: I can't do it. I have no hand-eye coordination.
Then I realized: Any human can pick up the uke. The kind I bought, an Emus, came with a booklet of chords. I learned those, then and there.
Work in progress: My biggest problem is I can't play and sing at the same time yet.
Accessorizing: I use a shoestring as a strap.
Music is ... One of my favorite things. I've always envied musicians. Now I've found something that I can play.
What's next? The banjo!
GET STARTED! Holland's tip: "Look for a ukulele that's well-crafted but cheap. Think wood, not plastic."
