How was the auditioning process for Love, Victor? What interested you about this role the most?


IF: I was lucky enough to have a very quick and simple audition process for Love, Victor! I had one audition in New York. About 3 weeks after, my agent calls and tells me that they want to fly me out to LA to screen test the following week. About an hour after that original call, she calls back saying not to worry about the screen test they just want to book me! I was so surprised it kind of came out of nowhere. I was definitely not expecting to book the role after just one audition but I am so grateful. I think what drew me the most to the role of Pilar is her feisty way of being. She isn’t afraid to say what she has to say, and doesn’t care much for other people’s opinions. I really value that about her. 


Pilar is a confident character who’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind. How much do you relate to her?


IF: I used to think we were complete opposites! But when I look back to when I was her age, I was kind of going through a similar thing in a different way. Just feeling like no one really understood me. I was having trouble making friends and felt alone. I just really want to see how Pilar grows.
