What is the show "Chicken Girls'' about and what's your character?

Chicken Girls revolves around a group of girls who call themselves the Chicken Girls and it’s about them navigating their life, school, and growing up and all that. I play Gus who was introduced in Season 7 of the show.

 

How different are you from the character you play? And what do you like ?

I would actually say that Gus and I are pretty similar, he’s kind of introverted at first but once you get to know him he’s super extroverted. He also cares about his friendships a lot. I’d say that Gus is a pretty nice guy. 

 

Where do you film the show?

We filmon 2 different sets and occasionally at a school for outdoor school scenes. 

 

What makes the Gen Z audience happy? Tell me what do we need to know about your generation?

I think what makes the Gen Z audience happy is the inclusivity that the show has and how relatable it can be to some people. Chicken Girls shows how the characters navigate their way through school and drama and I think a lot of people who watch the show can totally relate to some of the characters. 

 

Name 5 artists/songs that you place on repeat?

Some artists that I play on repeat are The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Lana Del Rey, Doja Cat, and Billie Eilish.

Where do you call home? Where would you love to visit one day?

Home for me is San Diego, and I really want to visit Europe one day. Especially France, Italy, and Greece.

 

How did school happen with your fabulous career?

I’ve been doing online school since 6th grade and I’m actually going back to normal school this year. I’m in 10th grade now so I will see how it goes and see if I’m able to balance my career and school. If I can’t, I’ll have to go back to online school.

 

Where do you see your career in 10 years? Any hidden talents you'd like to share?

I for sure see myself still acting in 10 years, I’m hoping to have done tons of movies and TV shows by then. I’d love to see myself in a Marvel movie in the next few years. 

 

Do you have any other projects to mention for 2023?

Nothing as of now, I’ve just been auditioning and continuing with my acting classes.
