Sofia Wylie is living proof that once you’re a Wildcat, you’re always a Wildcat!
In case you missed it, the 15-year-old “Andi Mack” actress is taking on the role of Gina – a very confident, outspoken girl who isn’t afraid to use her voice – in Disney Channel’s upcoming “High School Musical” TV series. In a recent interview, Sofia revealed that this new role has always been a dream of hers, saying:
“Deep down, I’ve always known this was what I wanted to do, but I never actually thought that this could happen. I mean, it’s just a surreal thought that I would be on ‘High School Musical: The Series’… that doesn’t seem real to me.”
But that’s not all! To celebrate this epic casting news, the talented teen took to social media posting an adorable throwback video from three years ago showing jumping up and down in front of the real East High. She even penned a heartfelt message about what this role means to her! Check it out:
This was taken 3 years ago! The first thing I did when I arrived in Utah was visit East High where they filmed ##HighSchoolMusical ❤️ If someone told my twelve your old self that three years later I would be on the show I wouldn’t believe it! 😳 #Thankful https://t.co/gcsQIltLQw
