Erin was inspired into acting by her younger brother. When her younger brother was born, she started singing and performing plays, which was a coping mechanism to lure back parents' attention towards her. In addition, Erin’s parents were extremely supportive of her. In an interview, Erin recalled:

“I guess it was my brother who pushed me into acting. What started as a need for more attention developed into a real passion and love for me...My family in particular has a lot of respect for the arts. My brother and I write music together, and my parents have always supported that”. She further added “they’ve also been at probably every performance we’ve ever had. We’re very lucky.”
