“When you adapt such a beloved series, people already have attachments to the characters, and you never know how the fandom is going to react. There are preconceived notions of what someone should look like or how they should behave,” the 19-year-old actress shared with TeenVogue when asked about adapting the book series into a TV show.
Kat added, “I don’t know if people will love or hate me. The series was already turned into a movie starring Lily Collins, so there are two adaptations to compare us to! Our saving grace is that we’re doing our own interpretation and taking on a brand new point of view.”
