Mani is the latest Brat YouTube show that’s been blowing up social media. Its star-studded cast of youngsters includes social media celebrities Piper Rockelle, Hayley LeBlanc, Mariam Star, Coco Quinn, and Txunamy.
As Mani premieres its second season, Everly Mag got the chance to interview one of its newest cast members: Sophie Ferguson (Goth Girl).
Everly Mag: How did you get the part on Mani?
Sophie: I was background and it was my second time ever on a set. Mitch, the director, and Lawrence, who plays Mani, asked me to read a small part. After that, they both loved the performance, and Lawrence kept writing me in.
Everly Mag: How many days did you spend on set?
Sophie: We just finished Season 2 and I spent 7 days on set.
Everly Mag: What was the best part of being on the Mani set? Any tips for being on set?
Sophie: The best part was all the new friends I’ve made. The Mani set is a lot of fun. A tip is to learn everyone’s name that you work with. People are always grateful when you remember their name!
Everly Mag: What was the hardest part of being on the Mani set?
Sophie: The hardest part was getting off the Goth Girl makeup when I got home!
Everly Mag: Who is your inspiration for your acting career?
Sophie: My mom’s friend Jen Marie Baker said I should try background work and helped me sign up. As far as my favorite actress, I love Christina Ricci.
Everly Mag: What advice would you give to young people who want to act?
Sophie: Never stop trying.
Check out Sophie on Instagram and in Season 2 of Mani.
