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.

Read the rest of the interview on Decider.com!

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:

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Star Sophia Lillis Takes On The Bustle Booth

Source: Bustle.com

When celebrities hang out with Bustle writers, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. This time, I Am Not Okay With This star Sophia Lillis is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.

Sophia Lillis should be taking a midterm right now, but she didn’t have time to study. Early this morning the high school senior flew back to New York City from Sundance, where her film Uncle Frank, which also stars Paul Bettany, got picked up by Amazon. She’s promoting Gretel & Hansel, a moody retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm tale, and a new Netflix series, I Am Not Okay With This, based on Charles Forsman’s graphic novel. It’s not that school isn’t important to Lillis. It’s just that so much else is important to her, too.

“I’ve kind of gotten used to the whole trying to talk to the teachers and figure out a way to do [schoolwork and acting],” the 18-year-old It actor says as her mom looks on from across the room. “I’m just looking [to end] the school year with passing grades [so I can] continue with acting.”

Lillis talks about acting with a certainty that belies her age. By 7, she’d already started ruling out other visions of the future. “First of all, I couldn’t do any sports,” she says. “I couldn’t remember any of the rules.” Her twin brother had quickly emerged as The Smart One. “I even saw that and thought, Wow, I’ve got nothing.”

Lillis cast her net wide, trying dance classes and singing. While she liked the arts, she insists she wasn’t improving as fast as the other kids. Around that same time, her stepfather recruited her to perform in a short movie he was making for film a class. “I dragged a red wagon around New York,” she remembers. “That was it. That was the whole thing.” Fast forward 11 years and that seemingly random afternoon spent roaming Times Square in a Halloween costume feels like a turning point. “That was the first time I really had a lot of fun doing something, and other people noticed, and I started taking acting classes.”

Watching her twin fill out his college applications this year has only reaffirmed Lillis’ choice. Far from growing tired or burnt out by a decade of performing, she’s more eager to do good work. “Whenever I look for a script it’s like, is it a good story? Is it a good character?” she says.

“You don’t usually see that, actually. Sometimes you get some roles where the girl is just mean, and without a reason to be mean. That old angsty teenager thing without a reason to be angsty, and I always feel like that isn’t totally accurate, being a high schooler myself. I’m not that angsty, am I?” Suddenly a teenager again, Lillis looks to her mom for confirmation. She shakes her head. “Nice,” Lillis says. “That’s good.”

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!

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.
