I’ve got HQ photos from the shoot in the gallery and you can read the interview by visiting the website here.
In the show you pretty much play the lead villain. As an actor, what’s the most gratifying part in portraying a villainous character?
Well my character has many layers. I mean, every artist and actor wants to be challenged and variety is the spice of life, and that’s exactly what Cheryl is. She does have all the characteristics of a typical “mean girl,” but underneath it all, she’s actually a very damaged human being, what with her brother being dead and her parents being completely terrible people. There’s so much going on beneath the surface. It’s every actor’s dream to play a complex character.
