Is Andi Mack's Sofia Wylie The Next Zendaya?

Sofia Wylie has been killing it as Buffy Driscoll on Andi Mack, and she’s only just getting started!

The 14-year-old dancer and actress seems to also be following in the footsteps of fellow Disney star Zendaya, from dancing to acting… Up next, singing.

“I’ve grown up watching Disney Channel like everybody else, and I always really looked up to Zendaya,” she told InStyle. “I mean, what can’t she do? She’s just kind of everything. It’s because of her that I wanted to be an actress and a dancer. She’s really shaped me into the person I am today, and now I want to be able to do that for others.”

“We met on the set of her show, K.C. Undercover, when they started filming season three. I had so many things that I wanted to say to her, and the second I saw her face, I completely choked,” Sofia dished. “I was so starstruck. She and the rest of the cast were so nice, and it’s crazy to me that other kids see that in the Andi Mack cast—especially because I don’t see myself as a ‘Zendaya.’ When I see Zendaya, I see this queen or goddess.”

“I was with my co-star Peyton [Elizabeth Lee], who plays Andi Mack on the show, and Zendaya gave us both advice,” she continued. “She just said, ‘Have fun with it. Don’t let anyone try to bring you down, because then your career is going to plateau and it won’t continue. But if you have fun, enjoy each other’s presence, and surround yourself with the people that you love, then you’re going to go really far.’”
