Rita Volk Reflects on 'Faking It' & Imagines Where Amy Is Now

Rita Volk Reflects on 'Faking It' & Imagines Where Amy Is Now

Faking It has been over for over a year and no, JJJ still isn’t over it.

Katie Stevens is one of the stars who opened up about what it felt like when the show was cancelled, and now Rita Volk, who played Amy, is doing the same.

Speaking with Clevver, Rita shared that when the show was cancelled it was “scary and it’s depressing. There were definitely a few moments where I was like, ‘Okay, well, what now?’ Because you book something like that and you’re working consistently and that show ran for three seasons so it was all that we all knew…”

For Rita, personally, she went through “a dry spell,” she calls it. “But then you feel bad complaining about it because it’s not anything that any actor hasn’t gone through. It’s just the life of an actor.”

She adds that the impact the show had was something she was touched by.

“One girl – I mean, not just one girl – but one I remember was, ‘I came out to my mom while watching your show,’ and that was beautiful,” she remembers. “That was amazing. None of us predicted that we would have that sort of impact, so I think the pressure was just in doing this group of people and community right and portraying the subject matter in the most authentic way that we possibly could.”

So, where does Rita think Amy is now? With Karma perhaps?

“I definitely see her as someone who goes on to college and really finds her group and is able to live her life and no one cares, which, is a good thing, that she can just be who she is just like any other college student today,” Rita says.

Or, “Maybe she’s out there in – I don’t know – Peru making some sort of documentary about some sort of weird animal species or whatever. I don’t know. Something weird, but that’s probably where she is right now.”

Katie Stevens Reveals How She Really Felt When 'Faking It' Was Cancelled

No lies, when Faking It was cancelled by MTV, it was one of the hardest things for us to come to terms with — and it looks like Katie Stevens is with us.

The actress, who starred as Karma on the show, wrote a beautiful thank you to fans afterwards.

Speaking with THR recently, Katie opened up about how she really felt after the show ended.

“I tried to always set myself up for the failures so that it wasn’t such a tough fall,” she says. “It’s like, ‘Cool. First season down. That was amazing. That was an experience that I’ll never forget in my life, but if we don’t get a season two, then we don’t.’”

“But, at the same time, when we found out that we were canceled, I sobbed. I sobbed like my life was ending.”

Us too, Katie. Us too.

Faking It was hard for me to let go of because I knew how many kids it helped,” she adds. “These kids’ stories that we were telling…I got so many heartbreaking messages of like, ‘This show helped me, and now I feel like there’s not something like this for me to watch to get past this.’”

When can this show be revived? We miss it sooooo much!

Katie Stevens Looks Back on 'Faking It' Finale One Year Later

Can you believe that it’s been a full year since the series finale of Faking It? Neither can Katie Stevens!

“I can’t believe this was one year ago. I remember the Faking It Series Finale like it was yesterday,” Katie wrote on Instagram, looking back at the moment.

“I had found out a few days prior that we would not be coming back to TV, and I was heartbroken. Watching the finale, I cried.. sobbed actually. I was thinking of all the beautiful memories I made, all of the wonderful people I had met, and was crushed for all the fans that would no longer have this show that meant so much to them. And selfishly, I was nervous about where my career would go, worrying about if I would book anything else.”

Katie continues, “And I’m so happy that ‘The Bold Type‘ came into my life when it did. Because I think it will be another show that reaches people’s hearts. And Faking It will always be there for the fans that need it.

I can't believe this was one year ago. I remember the Faking It Series Finale like it was yesterday. I had found out a few days prior that we would not be coming back to TV, and I was heartbroken. Watching the finale, I cried.. sobbed actually. I was thinking of all the beautiful memories I made, all of the wonderful people I had met, and was crushed for all the fans that would no longer have this show that meant so much to them. And selfishly, I was nervous about where my career would go, worrying about if I would book anything else. And I'm so happy that "The Bold Type" came into my life when it did. Because I think it will be another show that reaches people's hearts. And Faking It will always be there for the fans that need it. It makes me so happy seeing all the "Save Faking It" posts even a year later, and to see that the show is being newly watched by people, and reaching so many. Unfortunately the show is not coming back for another season, but I know that it will be in my heart and so many other people's hearts forever. And I'm so thankful we got to tell the stories we did. We all know Karmy should've and would've had a shot ;) Karma will not be the only character I play, but she'll always be special to me. I hope that all of the Faking It fans will follow my journey into "The Bold Type" and embrace Jane with the same fierceness that you embraced Karma with. I love you all so much! Thanks for being on this crazy ride with me, and I'll see you on Freeform July 11th ???? #fakingit #loveislove????

'Faking It' Cast Says Goodbye To Show - Read Their Emotional Tweets Here!

That’s it — Faking It is officially over and JJJ is still not okay with it.

Especially now that showrunner Carter Covington has dreamt up this awesome season four!

“It was always my intention to make ‘Karmy’ happen during our final season. Karma would finally realize that her possessiveness of Amy might be a sign of deeper feelings for her best friend. She’d struggle to share these feelings with Amy, knowing she couldn’t lead Amy on again unless she was sure,” he wrote in a letter on THR. “Unable to let another chance go by, Karma would impetuously kiss Amy, and a fresh ‘Whoa …’/'I know …’ moment would spark this new phase of their relationship. If this makes you deliriously happy, then please stop reading and let this be the ending in your mind.”

He continued, “How satisfying it would have been to finally see Karma and Amy as a true couple! There would have been lots of kisses, none of them dreams! But slowly it would have become clear that in becoming a couple, the two of them had lost something that made them … them. Eventually, they would both realize they’d have to sacrifice their relationship to save their friendship. The series would have ended with Karma and Amy’s life goals intact: roommates in college, houses next door to each other, best friends forever. That is what Karmy always meant to me.”

'Faking It' Series Finale Airs Tonight!

'Faking It' Series Finale Airs Tonight!

Get some scoop on tonight’s series finale of Faking It!

In “Up in Flames,” with the new year approaching, Karma (Katie Stevens) goes to great lengths to make Amy (Rita Volk) happy; and Lauren’s (Bailey De Young) self-esteem takes a hit when someone from the past returns.

So how will it all end?

“I didn’t want the fans to be left literally hanging off a cliff. I wanted there to be some sort of resolution,” executive producer Carter Covington told TVLine.com. “I felt that it was most important for Amy and Karma to be in a good place, and for Amy and Karma to be happy. If we’d ended in a place where Amy was still unhappy, it would have felt very unrewarding.”

Faking It ends TONIGHT, May 17 @ 10:30PM on MTV.
