Read on for the interview with Maddie Hasson below:
How would you describe the Winter premiere in one word?
Maddie Hasson: I would say: “180.” The entire show flips on its head. By the end of the first episode, it’s very shocking what happens. I’m excited for everybody to see it and see what they think.
What was your favorite upcoming episode to film?
Maddie: I really like the first episode, the winter premiere. It flips the entire plot, and it leads us in an entirely different direction than we were going in our last season. It’s a really cool way to start out the new season.
What do you think is going to happen with Danny?
Maddie: Let’s just say he gets into a lot more trouble than he was already in!
How does Jo deal with the relationship between Danny and Lacey?
Maddie: She sees that Danny isn’t interested in her, so she lets go of that idea. She is a little bit jaded by Lacey not telling her about her relationship with Danny. I think she’s more apt to rebuild her friendship with Lacey than she is with Danny.
Which moment between Jo and Danny is your favorite?
Maddie: I really enjoyed the dancing at the festival. I got to wear that big dress — and we did a funny dance and a cute little waltz. I really enjoyed that because I was a dancer before, and so was Avan, so we got to play around and make that up ourselves, which was fun and creative.
Could you describe the relationship between Jo and Rico?
Maddie: I don’t think she’s ever thought about him as anything other than her friend. She’s always thought of him as her best friend and someone who really gets her. They’re interested in the same things, they have fun together, and she can laugh with him. She can be child-like with him, she doesn’t have to deal with the serious things in her life.
What do you like most about playing Jo?
Maddie: With Jo, I really like to delve into all of her angst. It’s fun to work with those insecurities and add to them. Little things like biting my nails or twirling my hair helps with that persona. It’s really fun for me to get into that.
We’d like to thank Maddie for taking the time to answer questions for everyone.
