TWIST: Can you tell us a little bit about what's in store for your character Lexi on the upcoming season of A.N.T. Farm? SS: Well, we just started [filming] Season Two, and so far, I'm absolutely loving it! I think Lexi is really evolving as a character, and I know she's really sassy, but you get to see more of her. And, you know, I think she has a heart underneath all of that sassiness! You get to see a sweeter side of Lexi! And we still have lots of crazy costumes, and comedy, and some very fun situations, but it's going so wonderful, and I think Season 2 is going to even better than Season One!
TWIST: Awesome! That sounds great. Your character Lexi is kind of a bully. Do you have any experience dealing with bullies yourself, or mean girls? SS: Yes! I've dealt with bullying and mean girls my whole life! And I still deal with them, you know, whether it's rumors, or just people - girls can be kind of mean! I just try to deal with it by staying close with my two true friends, and kind of - you know, you can't let it effect you! Because if you let everything everyone says effect you it would literally eat you alive! So I deal with it even now! I'm going through the same thing a lot of TWIST readers are going through, and I think that's really cool. I'm not perfect; I go through the same things that they do, so I definitely deal with it.
TWIST: So, what is the vibe like on set with the rest of the cast? SS: Oh, it's so fun! We've been together on the show, from when I was 13, and China [McClain] was 11 - everybody was really young, so we have been growing up together! And it's kind of cool to see everybody grow up, and we're pretty close! We go to set every day, so it's just like having a family, and seeing them all day every day, except it's also work too. And it's really fun. And I love all the episodes, and when the writers write cool things for us to do together it's really fun!
TWIST: That sounds like a lot of fun! Can you tell us about your favorite memory or your favorite prank that was pulled on set? SS: Jake Short, who plays Fletcher, loves to scare people! He has this thing where he loves to pop out from corners! He always gets me on video! Literally, every time I walk into the classroom, he pops out of nowhere and just scares me! It's to the point I know it's coming, but I think he won't do it, but he still does it! And he's probably going to make this huge YouTube video of like, twenty times where he scares Stefanie. 'Cause he scared me so bad one time where I fell to the floor! And he was just laughing, and laughing! And I was... [sighs]. TWIST: That's funny though! SS: Yeah, it's funny for him! TWIST: Can you tell me about any upcoming projects that you're doing? SS: I love music! And I'm getting really involved with it. It's something I've been doing for a long time - you know, I did lots of theater and things when I was younger, and I've been writing for a long time. My song "A Girl I Used To Know" came out iTunes last year, and my music video for "A Girl I Used To Know" is on my YouTube channel, and I decided to do a couple of cover songs, too. I loved Adele's "Rolling in the Deep", so I had my friend play guitar, and I sang to that, and then I covered Taylor Swift's "Safe & Sound" - I had my friend do harmonies with me, and it was really fun! And I also have a song coming out later this year called "FYI" - and I'm SO excited because I've been working really hard on that one. It has to be one of my favorites! I've been writing a lot lately too, so I'm going to be recording more, releasing more music. And I have a new animated Disney film called Wreck it Ralph, and I get a voice in that! I love doing voice-over, 'cause even though you're not seen, it's kind of fun to get to do different things with your voice! It's really cute. I'm so excited! TWIST: Great! Thank you so much for talking with us! SS: Thank you, TWIST!
