Kennedy McMann Talks 'Nancy Drew' at PaleyFest: 'She's Not The Perfect Detective'

Kennedy McMann is spilling on her favorite part of playing Nancy Drew!

The 22-year-old actress joined the show’s cast for 2019 PaleyFest‘s fall TV previews on Saturday night (September 7) at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, Calif.

She was joined by her co-stars including Tunji Kasim, Maddison Jaizani, Alex Saxon, Leah Lewis, Kennedy McMann and Scott Wolf as well as writers Kennedy McMann and Melinda Hsu Taylor and producer Stephanie Savage.

During the panel, Kennedy explained that she loves that Nancy isn’t the perfect character.

“For me it’s refreshing because she’s not the perfect girlfriend, daughter, robot, detective girl. That’s not interesting at all to me. The stuff that drives me is this realistic messiness that’s displayed in all the grey areas of life,” Kennedy said on stage.

Make sure to check out the first trailer for the upcoming series!

Nancy Drew premieres on October 9th on The CW.
