Molly is a rising star and her appearance on Disney’s “Andi Mack” (as Iris) and Netflix’s “American Vandal” (as Paige Wodecki) proves it. We had the delightful opportunity to speak with Molly about her latest projects. Check out the interview below.
Thank you for granting the interview, Molly! “Andi Mack” is an awesome show that depicts teen life. It has received amazing reviews. You play Iris. Tell us about your character.
Iris is a fun, sweet, and caring girl. She sees the best in people and has a variety of people in her life.
“Andi Mack” is forward-thinking! The episode where Cyrus (Joshua Rush) comes out as gay will help a lot of teens facing similar situations.
The series has already helped teens and kids with many parts of life, and I love how they are branching out even farther. I am honored to be a part of a show that promotes inclusion and respect.
What can the audience expect from Iris?
You will have to wait and see!
What do you enjoy most about playing Iris?
I like how positive she is and that she sees the best in everyone.
You have starred in roles from comedy to horror. Do you have a favorite genre?
My favorite genre is drama because it can get so messy and raw. I love making people feel, and I think drama is the best at that.
Is there a role in your career that you would love to play?
I would love to play a character from the DC or Marvel universe someday, or a character who has a disability.
You also do voiceovers for Pixar. Tell us more.
It’s a lot of fun. I enjoy the challenge of having to express a full range of emotions with just your voice. I do a lot of ADR, which takes place during the post-production of a film. It can range from matching a voice to doing screams in the background. You never know what to expect in ADR until you show up.
You also appear on Nickelodeon shows “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn” (as Brianna) and “Game Shakers” (as Jenna). Tell us more about your characters.
Brianna is a cool kid at the Quad’s school, who starts by being mean to them but ends up befriending them. Jenna a smart coder who helps the Game Shakers defeat an evil robot. Both sets are a blast to be on. I love working on those shows!
On Netflix, you play Paige Wodecki on “American Vandal”. Tell us about your role.
You don’t see much of Paige in season 1, but she is pretty much your average teen. She loves gossiping about the vandal and coming up with conspiracies.
What do you like to do when you’re not filming?
I love working out. I try to get a workout in every day. I also love to be around animals, read, watch TV, play my ukulele, and travel.
Is there anything you would like to add that we haven’t asked?
