Halston Sage had small roles in "The Bling Ring," "Grown Ups 2" and "Neighbors," but the actress has now embarked on her first major part, playing Lacey in "Paper Towns."

"This was the first role where I actually felt a part of the movie as a whole," the 22-year-old tells Made in Hollywood, of the big screen adaptation of John Green's young adult novel.

But simply landing the gig wasn’t what really made the experience so memorable for Sage.

"Bonding with the cast was a big part of that," she says. "I think the thing right in this moment that I'm most proud of and most excited about [is], I'd say, this."

The film - which centers around Quentin (Nat Wolff) setting out on a mission with his friends to find Margo, the girl next door (Cara Delevingne) who mysteriously goes missing - hits theaters July 24.
