“The mystery, drama, scandal, and lies unfold from there and they keep you on the edge of your seat,” Desiree told JJJ about the show. “I play the role of Sophia. Sophia starts off just wanting to fit in, like most kids would and she is in the midst of finding her way as a person.”
Desiree added, “She also gets into some mischief with her crazy silly cousin, but in the end Sophia is the only one in the show that is pure at heart and has a pure faith.”
Be sure to catch her Greenleaf every Wednesday night @ 10PM on OWN.

The 21-year-old social media star also gave JJJ the behind-the-scenes scoop about choosing the song and filming the romantic music video.
“I’ve loved ‘Like I’m Gonna Lose You’ ever since it came out, so when I had the opportunity to cover a new song I knew exactly which one to cover! I’ve been performing it with Willie Jones for a while and it’s been an amazing experience every time,” she told JJJ.
The video even features Mahogany‘s boyfriend Carlos Esparza and her BFF Jazzmin Rose!
“I got to sing it to my boyfriend Carlos, and Willie sang it to my best friend Jazzmin — so it was easy to make the video and cast our loves,” Mahogany explained. “We had an amazing time filming the video, and since we’re all such good friends it was really comfortable and easy. It was also Willie‘s first music video, and that made it even better.”
The 22-year-old actress/dancer breaks it down for their “Calvin Kleins” video, given exclusively to JustJaredJr.com!
In case you don’t know them, The Johnsons is comprised of three brothers born just a year apart – Clayton, Chantry, and Connor – who grew up teaching each other instruments and discovering their musical talents and abilities at a young age.
“‘Calvin Kleins’ is the first of our summer singles,” they said. “We wanted to create a video that would capture the sentiment of the lyrics as well as the danciness of the music. We were so lucky to have legendary dancers Alyson Stoner and Shonnie Solomon help us bring the story of the song to life!”
The 15-year-old actress shared her top 6 favorite moments from the first season of the series, which hits Netflix TODAY, June 21!
Check them out below! And don’t forget – Landry is taking over the JJJ Snapchat today!
1. We had a lot of fun last season as a cast, both on set and away from work. We bonded last year with a pumpkin carving party for Halloween. We did them during school time. Lauren and I did the more traditional Jack o’ Lanterns but the guys were more intense. Ricky did Spiderman and Gus made his a TV screen.
2. For most of us, the flashback to the 70′s episode was our favorite. We shot a crazy silly video with Ricky’s band, Forever In Your Mind, to support the episode but the actual dance we did for the episode was really amazing. I was paired with Gus and I could hardly keep a straight face with his 70′s wig.

We’ve got a double dose of Jessica Darling’s It List fun for our readers today!
Not only do we have an exclusive clip from the movie, but we also caught up with executive producer Debby Ryan!
“I loved the book and knew a lot of my fans had read it,” Debby told JJJ about taking on the project. “My mom and I have a production company and thought this would be a great project to work on together.”
“I loved and adored this cast so much. Going into this I was aware this would be a lot of people’s first major vehicle and I think they all have such futures ahead of them,” she said. “I’m so proud of the work they did on the film.”
Debby has enjoyed stepping behind the camera lately.
“I love them both in different ways,” she told us about acting and producing. “I think I had to be an actress and then begin directing to know what was required of me as a producer. But there’s no feeling like watching this movie and seeing it come to life. “”
So why should you go see Jessica Darling’s It List?
“One of my favorite parts of this movie is that things start going right for Jessica when she starts playing by her own rules,” Debby said. “I worked with Marvista that produced my movie Sixteen Wishes and we produced Radio Rebel together – so I’m excited for people to see the particular breed of magic we make together.”
Jessica Darling’s It List is available on Digital HD and On Demand June 21st. Watch the exclusive clip below!
Based on the hit books, Jessica Darling is a smart, witty, opinionated girl heading into 7th grade, who wasn’t too concerned about where she’d fit in the middle school hierarchy.
But before her first day of school, her older sister—the super popular Bethany, now in college—decides to help by giving her the “IT List”—a cheat sheet on how to navigate the middle school maze and rise to the top of the popularity chain.
The instructions appear simple enough, but, like life, nothing is as easy as it seems and Jessica soon realizes that embracing your true self is much more important than any “IT List.”
Jessica Darling’s It List is available on Digital HD and On Demand June 21st.
