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.

Sophie: We just finished Season 2 and I spent 7 days 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!
