Kennedy McMann Says Her Nancy Drew is 'Extremely Fearless & Bold' In New Series

Kennedy McMann Says Her Nancy Drew is 'Extremely Fearless & Bold' In New Series

Tonight’s the night – Nancy Drew finally premieres!

The premiere ep introduces us to the title character, played by Kennedy McMann, a brilliant teenage detective whose sense of self had come from solving mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine – until her mother’s untimely death derails Nancy’s college plans.

Devastated by her mother’s passing, Nancy swears off crime-solving while crossing off the days until she can re-apply to college. But when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene.

“She is Nancy Drew as she’s always been in a lot of ways,” Kennedy shared in a recent interview about the new version of the iconic character. “She’s willing to do anything to pursue good and right wrongs and be extremely fearless and bold in the pursuit of that, but we’re seeing her in the confines of the modern world.”

She adds, “She’s figuring out who she is, what she’s capable of, how far she can push herself, and then, as a person, what her needs are as her life is just radically changed with the passing of her mother. It’s unraveling her college plans and all of that. She’s saying, ‘what is my life now? Who am I? If I’m not my mother’s daughter and I’m not this perfect student? Who am I?’ She’s fiery and commanding. She’s not afraid to stand up to authority, but she’s also emotionally numbed a little bit in her emotional jury that we get to witness throughout the season. I think it is really special.”

Nancy Drew premieres TONIGHT, Wednesday, October 9th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Kennedy McMann Has Been Preparing to Play Nancy Drew All Her Life

Kennedy McMann Has Been Preparing to Play Nancy Drew All Her Life

Kennedy McMann and Leah Lewis speak on stage during the Nancy Drew panel at 2019 New York Comic Con at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Sunday (October 6) in New York City.

The two actors were joined by co-stars Tunji Kasim, Alex Saxon, Maddison Jaizani and Scott Wolf as they promoted the new CW show.

In a recent interview, Kennedy opened up about how it was fate for her to play the title role.

“I come from a super literary family. My mom’s an author. I grew up reading the books. I played the computer games all through college. I was hogging the family computer when I was a kid, and then it just became my laptop, when I was 19, (with) different ‘Nancy Drew’ games on it,” she shared. “So I was pretty well versed. When it came about I was, like, ‘Ah, ah, I’ve been doing this my whole life. I’m ready to go.’

Kennedy adds, “But then when I got the part, it had been a while since I read the books. And I intentionally did not reread them because I was confident in the history that I had with the character, and I felt like I knew her really well.”

“I feel like I wanted to just be true and dedicate myself to the Nancy that we were creating, with all the knowledge that I already had to back up the historical relevance of her traits and things like that.”

However, Kennedy‘s Nancy is a bit different from the 1930s book version: “She’s very prim and proper in the 1930s editions of the books, and we’re showing her in a more modern context. But, yeah, I think that there is just a broader market for a lot riskier material.”

Nancy Drew premieres THIS WEEK on The CW!
