Veronica Dunne stars as the fun-loving, best friend Marisa on K.C. Undercover but in a new interview, she opened up about just how seriously she takes her role on the show, and her position as a role model for girls who watch her on TV.
"I’ve been given an incredible platform by being on Disney. So many young girls look up to the female roles on that network. I know I did. And I think growing up a girl in today’s society is really hard with all the Photoshop and airbrushing. All these girls who are portrayed as ‘perfect’ when in reality, no one is perfect," Veronica said. "We all have our flaws and there’s something beautiful about every single one of us. I think that’s really important to acknowledge. I want to be a real girl that others can look up to. This fact that girls can look up to me, and do look up to me, is an honor and a privilege. I want to make the best of it."
Veronica doesn't take her responsibility to the viewers of K.C. lightly, and she wants to serve as a voice of reason the best way she can. And that in and of itself is just so admirable.
