Decider.com Interview & Build Studio appearance (27 Feb.)

Decider posted an interview with Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff on their website today.

How Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff’s IRL Friendship Inspired the Core Relationship of ‘I Am Not Okay With This’

When you’re talking about Netflix’s new series I Am Not Okay With This, IT is bound to come up.

That’s because IT and IT: Chapter Two stars Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff are reunited in I Am Not Okay With This as awkward friends Sydney Novak and Stanley Barber. Syd is a grieving teenager struggling with her ambivalent feelings towards her own innate superpowers. Stanley, on the other hand, is an all-too normal boy who is crazy cool because he’s not cool. Together, the two make a perfect odd couple and their chemistry zings through the series’ first season.

During a visit to the show’s Pittsburgh-based set, Decider got to chat with the cast and creative team behind I Am Not Okay With This. According to Lillas, Sydney has a lot in common with the Molly Ringwald characters of the Brat Pack era, while Oleff shared that Stanley is loosely based on Pretty in Pink‘s Duckie. As it turns out, Lillis and Wyatt were cast not because of their resemblance to John Hughes’s characters or their work in IT, but thanks to their real life friendship.

And on Thursday 27 February Sophia and Wyatt will be interviewed at Build Studio between 1:00PM and 1:30PM. So if you’re from New York and are free that day, you can buy tickets HERE and maybe see both Sophia and Wyatt there!

UPDATE: I also added a magazine scan from Sophia in Harper’s Bazaar Australia (March 2020) to the gallery. Click on the photo to see it full size:

Hi everyone! Veronique, the owner of Sophia Lillis Fan, here!

Do you visit Sophia Lillis Fan frequently? Do you have any photos, screencaps, magazine scans, photoshoots etc that aren’t on this fansite yet and you would like to donate? You can EMAIL ME. Also let me know if you would like to be credited and how.

What can you donate?
Fanart, Candid + Event Photos, Film Stills + Screencaps, Magazine Scans and Photoshoots. Or even money.

Normally I’m not someone who asks money from people, so that is NOT what this is. Donating means that it is OPTIONAL. I’ve been getting a lot compliments about this site and all the great content. Thank you so much for all of your warm words, it makes it so much easier to keep this fansite as updated as possible!

As many of you may already know it isn’t easy to keep a fansite like this one updated with the best and most recent content. Up to this point I’ve always paid for all the HQ picture content in the gallery! As well as the domain name and the hosting.

Unfortunately it has gotten more difficult for me to finance everything. So that’s why I wanted to try a DONATE button on the website.

Again, donating is optional and all you have to do is click on the button below to be redirected to the donation page. You can choose to either pay with PayPal or with Debit or Credit Card. And you can, of course, choose the amount you want to donate.

All donations will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for all of your continued support. Let’s make Sophia Lillis Fan even better together!
