We recently caught up with the 12-year-old actress – who’s playing the younger version of Yara Shahidi‘s character in the upcoming film based off the Young Adult novel of the same name – and got the inside scoop on the all-time best moment from the movie’s set. Looking back at her time filming, Anais revealed that the scene the trailer opens with was her absolute favorite to film and made for some amazing memories.
Getting the chance to run around on the roof of an New York City building does sound like a dream come true!
“My favorite scene that I shot in the movie was the one where I was running around on a rooftop in New York and it was so cool because I see the New York City skyline and I was playing Hide and Seek with my set dad. It was super fun and it was one of my favorite memories that I made on set.”
