To celebrate Netflix’s newest laugh-out-loud series — which officially premiered on Monday and follows Kaylie Konrad, a shallow and selfie-obsessed teenage celebrity billionaire who is court-ordered to serve her community by mentoring an after-school wilderness club for inner-city tweens — we caught up with Bryana to catch the inside scoop on her on-screen persona.
According to the multi-talented 22-year-old actress, even though Kaylie seems unrelatable at first, she grows, evolves, and discovers that she has so much more to offer than just a pretty face:
“She finds the realness and finds that she can be herself, and she doesn’t have to put on this persona all the time. That’s really important, especially with social media, to really own who you are and be okay with that. You don’t have to be what you think everybody else wants to see! That message is really important to me.”
In case you missed it, Bryana gave us a behind-the-scenes look at recording process for the “Team Kaylie” theme song!
