“I feel like there is a side of me that is so bubbly and so energetic and so positive, and I love being able to play her all the time,” Peyton told Pop Culture of portraying Ari. “I love being able to really dive deep into that mindset and my own personal life. So playing that side of Ari and just being happy and being in my own world and having a sense of confidence and having the sense that no matter what anybody thinks, I’m going to do what I want to do and what makes me happy. I really love that, and I think that that’s a mindset that most people should have and that I should have more. I should have the confidence in myself that Ari has.”
