The 26-year-old actress recently told Hardly magazine about playing both characters on screen, “Playing the two roles has definitely gotten easier. I feel as though I really know these girls now, which helps me make choices about the characters much more quickly. The workload tends to be challenging and extremely time consuming, however, it really is an incredible thing to see once it is all said and done. It is helpful as well that I have a great double, Nikki, who acts as Sutton when I’m Emma and vice versa.”
In the winter premiere “Cheat, Play, Love,” Sutton (Chando) steps up her plans to win back Ethan (Blair Redford), and makes a point to let Emma (also Chando) know her intentions. Feeling left out of Emma and Thayer’s (Christian Alexander) growing closeness, Mads (Alice Greczyn) visits her father in prison and shocks Emma with a family revelation.
“Cheat, Play, Love” airs Tuesday, January 15th @ 9PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
