She has an older brother. At 5'2" in height, Roth is a verifiable tiny person, but appears even tinier in comparison to her 6'1" co-hosts, Dan Murrell and Joe Starr. Roth was exposed to a wide range of films as a child, some of them ostensibly intended for older audiences.... but she turned out just fine! Roth has dyslexia and was inspired by the film Finding Dory to discuss the impact of dyslexia on her as both a child and adult. Roth attended film school. You can watch one of the short films she made in film school here.
Roth is a devoted fan of Doctor Who can be easily enraged by inaccurate references to the show, regardless of whether they are accidental or shamelessly designed to provoke her. Roth likes wide variety of films and TV shows, but is noted for her deep love of the Paddington, films of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Wong Kar-Wai, and the most "perfect" film ever: Robocop. In addition, Roth is renown for her unabiding passion for actor Kurt Russell. In 2018, Roth hotly anticipated the release of the film, The Meg, but was somewhat disappointed that the film wasn't the ridiculous, cheeseball extravaganza promised by the excellent marketing campaign.
