Lindsey on her character, Lisa: “I was so much like Lisa in high school. I was very into my schoolwork and had little to no social life. I was shy and hadnâ€™t yet found my own voice which I think is a stage everyone can relate to. High school is the time when you start to find where you fit in the world. Itâ€™s scary but totally necessary.”
Cassie on working with Tim Gunn: “Amazing! I learned so much from him during our short car rides back and forth to set and between scenes. I believe in learning from our elders, especially if they share the same career, dreams and goals. I absolutely loved working with Tim. Heâ€™s a fashion God and his dynamic with my character is hilarious. I couldnâ€™t think of a better fit for that role!”
Lindsey on how to impress a guy: “The craziest thing Iâ€™ve ever done to impress a guy was pretend that I was totally into this musical artist he really liked. I was going on and on one day about this artist in front of the guy and it turns out Iâ€™d been mispronouncing his name the whole time! He knew immediately that I knew nothing about the music and got a good laugh out of it. It was so embarrassing.”
Cassie on playing the mean girl roles: “I love playing the feisty, bad girl roles. I wouldnâ€™t want to go to work every day and play myself. Every bad girl/bully is that way for a reason and thereâ€™s always a lot of unexpected depth to the bad girl. The people who bully are usually the insecure, messed up ones to begin with. Which is why I always tell fans who are being bullied to laugh it off and realize theyâ€™re the ones with the problem. Youâ€™ve gotta let it go in one ear and out the other. Every challenge makes us stronger.”
