‘Tis the season!

Halloween is just a couple weeks away, so there’s no doubt that Nickelodeon’s seriously spooky series “Are You Afraid of the Dark” is our new fave. And with the limited series set to launch this Friday, we prepped by chatting with Miya Cech, herself, who plays The Midnight Society member Akiko.

The 12-year-old actress revealed that she constantly had to face her two biggest fears — heights and clowns — on set. The worst part? She ran into clowns left and right while filming the Carnival of Doom scenes. Miya says what was even scarier was when the director put clowns on stilts:

“I had to deal with clowns and they were on stilts and they were running on stilts. I don’t want to spoil anything, but in the trailer you see me running from clowns and the clowns are behind us… chasing behind us.”
