"Faking It has such a novel concept. I haven’t ever seen anything on tv like it, especially for a younger demographic. It tackles serious issues but never fails to be lighthearted and funny. In terms of writing, it’s a hard balance to achieve, but the writers somehow manage to make awkward, sad, painful and scary experiences digestible and enjoyable to watch. The show has such a great mix of genres…we could be shooting a funny scene, and then cry in the next one. There’s something for everybody, and as actors, we never get bored. In terms of Amy, I loved how funny and quick and strong she was when I read the script. She’s an independent and smart girl, but she has a huge heart and is innocent in ways that make her incredibly endearing. I loved her sarcasm and her wit. I think she’s a great role model for young girls."
