Welcome Carly Steel!
The multi-talented entertainment journalist is joining the Entertainment Tonight team as a full-time correspondent, and she's bringing with her an impressive background in celebrity news reporting and high-profile interviews, as well as a tenacious spirit.
As Steel begins her tenure as an official ET correspondent, here are eight things you should know about her, in her own words.
1. She's Got a Great Work Ethic
"I think my friends would describe me as fun, adventurous and very hard-working."
2. She Knows How to Handle Pressure
"My first job was at Vogue magazine. I was an assistant to the managing editor so I was like [Anne Hathaway’s character] in The Devil Wears Prada."
3. She's From Across the Pond
"I'm Scottish, born and raised. I'm not a fake Brit. I'm like the reverse Madonna, I'm a faux-merican. My Scottish accent comes out when I'm tired or when I'm grumpy or if I've had a lot of wine. Or all of the above."
4. She'll Surprise You on the Dance Floor
"I love dancing. A lot of people are surprised. They look at me and think, 'That girl cannot dance.' But actually, I can break it down a little bit in a kind of a shocking way."
5. She Has Some Very Specific Favorite Career Moments
"I have two favorite assignments… the first is definitely [my] first film assignment for Entertainment Tonight,going around the world with Tom Cruise [while he was promoting the premiere of Edge of Tomorrow in 2014]. My other favorite assignment is definitely [interviewing] Mariah Carey on her yacht!"
6. She Gets Feedback From Her Mom
"My biggest influence is definitely my mother. She's one of my best friends and she still influences me to this day in everything I do, from how I host to how I dress to what I'm doing in photos… She gives me positive criticism."
7. She Gets A LOT of Feedback From Her Mom
"My mother's first reaction when she first saw me on ET was to [say], 'Stand up straight. You're not Gollum, this is not The Lord of the Rings, you're not looking for [your] precious. It's a mic and a camera.'"
8. She's Got Some Serious Legal Cred
"If I wasn't in this industry I would be a lawyer, because I have a law degree. So I'd be a badass barrister, like Amal Clooney."
