HORTON Stylist: SIMONA SACCHITELLA Makeup: LEIBI CARIAS Hair: YUICHI ISHIDA Cliché: What drew you to certain roles such as Anka for Freakish and Sarah for American Vandal? Saxon Sharbino: What really drew me to Anka is that she is a manipulative mean girl who was so intricate and actually had a soft side. I thought that was really fun. Anka got to say something that I would never get to say and I related to her a lot. What I like about Sarah Pearson in American Vandal is that I never actually got to go to high school. I was homeschooled so I never had any of these experiences. Yes, I relate to both characters in different ways. I relate to Anka in the sense that she loved her family and left to protect her family, and I left my family in order to protect my family. I also think I relate to how she puts up walls in the beginning because she thinks she’s tough, even though she is not. I don’t think I do that as much in real life, but I definitely understood that feeling of wanting to protect yourself. As for Sarah, as I said, I never went to high school so I never had the same experiences that she has, but I can totally understand how What was it like filming this past season of both Freakish and American Vandal? Filming was a lot of fun; it was one of my first times working with people my own age and that was really cool. Everyone took their work very seriously, but it was also lighthearted. We filmed some party scenes, which was cool. I had never filmed a party scene and the entire cast got to bond and it didn’t really feel like a job; it felt like fun. Everyone was so humble and nice; it was one of my best experiences on set. “I relate to both characters in different ways. I relate to Anka in the sense that she loved her family and left to protect her family, and I left my family in order to protect my family.” But I know that gossip and who’s hooking up with who actually does affect girls’ self-esteem and how they view themselves for years to come. What I really love about American Vandal is that it is funny and interesting, but it also brought to life some major issues that are going on in our society. Do you relate to your characters in any way? Are you similar or different from them? she is feeling. If I was put in the same situation that she has been in, I would act the same way. Did you pull any pranks with any of your fellow castmates on American Vandal or Freakish? No, not really; we didn’t do anything crazy. We really just had a great time with each other and love being on set together. www.clichem )%́ѡɔѡѡɔ)ѡЁԁɔݽɭѡ)ԁ݅ЁѼѕ́)ɕ́͠ɕ܁)ɥÝͼ܁ɕ)9љก$ͼͽ)ȁ1܀=ɑMYT1Սȸ)ͼ$ٔUɉ չ)ЁͽݥѠͥѕ) ɥѽ'eՑѥ)ݽɭɥѥ͍ɥ́)'eɥѥѥ)䁽ݸ(
