The 22-year-old actress, wearing Lumier by Bariano, opened up to the glossy about her show Awkward, how she got the gig, and what’s coming up for her character. Check it:
On her audition: “I originally got called in to audition for the project because the casting directors saw me in an episode of Community that I had guest-starred on. I loved the pilot immediately! I found out that I got the part of Tamara two days after auditioning!”
Her favorite thing about playing Tamara: “I’ve been living with Tamara for four years now, and I love every bit of her. She’s super sassy and fun, which is always exciting to play. If I had to pinpoint something I don’t like about her, it’s probably just that she’s a little bossy…but I think that’s fun.”
On this season: “It’s senior year, which screams drama. Jake and Tamara are going through a rough period which ends in Jake awnting to break up. There’s a lot of fun stuff coming up with that situation this year. Tamara is learning to let go, ot not, and learning how to be on her own during senior year. This season is really funny.”
