'The Lodge' Star Sophie Simnett Talks Feminism For 'Wonderland' Cover Story

Sophie Simnett opts for a fun colorful print for the new Winter 2016 cover of Wonderland magazine.

The 19-year-old actress opens up to the glossy about her new Disney Channel show The Lodge. Check it:

On starring in a teen show: “Well it the show has all the classic aspects of Disney in it. And it’s a really local show, and engages with local issues. You have the musical aspect of it, too, which is really wonderful and always engaging. But my character goes through a lot: she’s dealing with the death of a mother, with the massive adjustment from moving from a big city to the countryside — a lot of aspects other teen shows don’t necessarily confront. There’s more to it.”

On being a female lead: “Well Skye is incredibly strong. I think my peers and I are very aware of feminism, it’s a very important topic. I mean, feminism defined is believing in equality in both genders, why isn’t that inherent? We have to embrace it and go with it. There’s such a massive group of supporters for these equal rights, you would hope people who didn’t believe it would see that and be like, ‘Oh, wait.’”
