Calling all #Porcupines! We have some big news.

Ever since “Team Kaylie” was released, we haven’t been able to stop watching. So we recently caught up with Eliza Pryor (aka Valeria in the fun-filled series) — and she revealed that she actually originally auditioned an entirely different character. Who knew?!

When Eliza first went in to read for a role, she was going out for the part of Jackie (played by her BFF Symera Jackson). OMG! We’re so glad Eliza ended up nabbing her eventual role as Valeria. The show would have been so different without her as the fearless go-getter!

“I actually auditioned for Jackie…So, I auditioned as her and then they had a callback and then they went straight to the testing with all the kids. And for the test they were like… why don’t you come in as Valeria, too.”

And this isn’t the first time! Did you know these stars were almost cast as different characters, too?
