“I don’t think Lily thought anything of it,” the actress, who is playing a teenage version of Lily in the HBO Max spin-off, said. “I really don’t. I think she was curious. She was excited.”
The 26-year-old performer known for voice-over work in Netflix’s animated movie Over the Moon, is stepping into the series as the grown-up daughter of Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis). She is getting ready for the exciting new show, which is being hailed for its more-diverse-than-the-original cast.
“It’s scary, but also exciting to know that a person like me can be on the show,” she told the publication. “I never thought of myself as sitting on a show that was so spectacular and iconic. I hope people enjoy seeing Lily and that there’s a lot of young girls out there who feel akin to her. I hope I can be a light for that.”
