Check out this brand new interview with Faking It‘s Rita Volk who just returned as the laid-back and hilarious Amy Raudenfeld in season two of the hit MTV show.
As we saw in the premiere last week, Amy and Liam (Gregg Sulkin) decided to keep their hook up a secret and according to Rita, “Ironically, they’re going to bond over it.”
“They don’t become besties by any means, but Amy is going to learn some things about Liam that will make her see him in a more positive light, and in one particular episode Liam is going to realize that Amy has some qualities he would like to have,” she told JJJ.
She also opened up to JJJ about her friendship with co-star Katie Stevens, what she’d like to see happen for Amy, and advice for fans who find themselves in the same situation as her character. Check it out!
JustJaredJr.com: This season on Faking It, we’re already seeing a more vulnerable side to Amy. How do you prepare yourself for such emotional scenes?
RV: For me, when I’m in that moment and I really look into who that character is, I start to empathize with that person. And that’s where the emotion comes from. I think perception and empathy are the most important things for an actor. Some of what Amy goes through I can relate to, and what I can’t I just try to understand. As the show goes on, I’m really starting to build her in my head and feel like shes becoming an extension of me. So in those particularly vulnerable moments, I feel her downs and the emotions just come out. Most of the time its not something I can even verbalize.
JJJ: What is it like to have such a passionate fan base, especially the Karmy shippers?
RV: They are the most loyal, devoted fans. They get so excited about the show and we’ve had so much positive reception. Everyone wants to root for Karma because a relationship that close is rare. A lot of these girls either see themselves in this relationship or strive to have something like it. I think that’s why people are so passionate and invested. Also, they can make anything trend on social media and they come up with the best nicknames. It’s a whole force, it’s kind of a big deal. They never cease to amaze us. Not to brag or anything, but our fans are pretty awesome.
