Paris Berelc Dishes On Her Favorite Wigs She Wore For 'Alexa & Katie' (Exclusive)

Paris Berelc Dishes On Her Favorite Wigs She Wore For 'Alexa & Katie' (Exclusive)

Have you gotten the change to binge watch Paris Berelc‘s new Netflix series, Alexa & Katie?

We’re not ashamed at all to say that we’ve watched it more times than we can count on our hands – and the one thing that we’re still obsessed about is the wigs that she, and co-star Isabel May, wear in the series.

JJJ spoke to Paris about getting to wear not only the wigs and picking her favorites, but also how it felt to wear just the bald cap on set.

“Wearing the bald cap was me in the chair for a few hours getting that done” Paris explains to us. “When I first saw myself bald, I’ll admit that I don’t look so bad bald. (laughs).”

She adds, “There’s definitely a shock when all your hair is gone and even watching it on screen it’s like ‘Woah. I’m bald.’ Going through that with Isabel was really eye opening. I can’t imagine what it is like for someone who actually is bald, from cancer.”

However, there was that perk of the wigs.

“We tried on so many that we didn’t even use,” Paris reveals, but her favorites were definitely the short blue and pink wigs in the second episode. “They were so much fun to wear.”

Another of her favorites actually wasn’t used though.

“One that we didn’t use was one with bangs that was brunette,” Paris says. “It was really cool and really cute, but it just didn’t make the cut.”

Maybe we’ll see it in season 2?

Alexa & Katie is streaming now on Netflix.

Netflix Renews 'Alexa & Katie' For Season Two!

Just like JJJ predicted, Alexa & Katie is coming back for a season two!

Netflix confirmed the rumors today with a studio audience shot on the sound stage.

Starring Paris Berelc and Isabel May as the title characters, the series centers on two best friends eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school; despite the fact that Alexa is undergoing cancer treatment.

Her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie by her side.

It’s not easy playing someone with cancer on a television show or in a movie, but Paris Berelc is doing it really well on Netflix’s Alexa & Katie.

While chatting with the 19-year-old actress recently, JJJ discovered that Paris and her cast mates did a lot of research before diving into the material for the series.

“We definitely did the research,” Paris tells us. “We went online and tried to get all the information that we could on the cancer that Alexa does have and how to handle it.”

On top of that, Paris and her co-stars also went to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles to meet with patients there.

“We met with a girl, who was actually named Katie, to hear her story,” Paris adds. “She was my same age, but still went to high school and has a boyfriend, and went to prom. Learning from her experience definitely helped me and the whole cast out in how to approach the story. I also have some other people in my life who had gone through cancer.”

If you’re still wondering what type of cancer Alexa is supposed to have, it’s a specific type of leukemia called ALL, acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

“We didn’t want to risk losing that audience who hasn’t really seen that character before by going too dark,” showrunner Heather Wordham shared with IndieWire. “So we picked this type of leukemia that has an incredibly high survival rate.”

She adds, “It’s common in kids and it has about a 90 percent survival rate. We didn’t want to be cavalier about, ‘Oh, she has cancer. It’s fine.’ We wanted to make sure we were depicting a type that this is most likely this child’s journey.”

“We picked a time in the process where she would be coming through it, so that we could still show that character but not scare away an audience that we really thought was an important audience to see this.”

Alexa & Katie is streaming on Netflix now.
