Sophia Lillis Interview:
I and a few other bloggers had the chance to interview Sophia Lillis. Now, you may know her name from her role as Beverly Marsh in the horror film It. She also had a role in the HBO thriller mini-series Sharp Objects.
We all had a chance to ask Sophia a few questions about her life and her role as Nancy Drew in The Hidden Staircase. I learned that she hadn't read the books prior to getting a role in the movie. But, that she has been working her way through them all. And, she shared that the third book - The Bungalow Mysteries.
And, Sophia also mentioned that one of the things she enjoyed about the movie is that it updated a classic book. She hoped this would get more kids interested in the series. She really hoped that the movie would help emphasize the importance of friendship. And, she wants it to inspire kids to follow their own dreams.
Now, if you haven't already, make sure that you pick up a copy of this Blu-ray / DVD so you can see Sophia Lillis as Nancy Drew. And, check out my thoughts on Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase.
