Recently my 8 year old had the opportunity to interview two of the cast members of the hit Netflix show Project Mc2, one of her absolute favourite programmes. You can read how her video chat with Victoria Vida (Adrienne Attoms) went here. This time I’m sharing her interview with Ysa Penarejo who plays Camryn Coyle, the analytical and highly intelligent member of the group of teen spies that loves her souped up skateboard. N got to find out how much Ysa is like her character and some cool behind the scenes stuff.
What is your favourite thing about being in Project Mc2?
My favorite thing about Project MC2 is the awesome missions the girls go on. Some of the missions are pretty crazy but a lot of fun. Also, I love the outfits! I wish I was as stylish as the girls!
Any funny moments that you remember from filming?
We had so many funny moments on set! It’s hard to keep track haha! My favorite funny moment was when Genneya, Victoria, and I were just standing, waiting to start a scene. Something happened and it reminded us of an inside joke, we looked at each other and started laughing! No words needed.
Are you anything like your character? If so, how?
Cam and I do share some similar character traits. Camryn doesn’t have the best communication skills and I can totally relate! Also, we care for our friends very much.
What was your favourite subject at school?
My favorite subject in school is math!
Were you good at science and technology?
Science and technology aren’t my strongest suits, but I love them just as much as math.
As a child, what did you want to be when you were older?
When I was a child, I wanted to be either a doctor or a dancer.
What have you learnt whilst filming Project Mc2?
I learned a lot about balancing school and personal time.
Why do you think it’s cool to be smart?
Being your best and true self is cool!
What one piece of advice would you give young girls at school?
Always put your best foot forward and don’t be afraid to explore elements out of your comfort zone.
What personality traits do you think girls need in order to be smart and successful?
Three personality traits I believe girls need in order to be smart and successful are confidence, dedication, and motivation.
We really recommend Project Mc2 for any pre-teen girl, it’s such a fun show with a great message. We hope you’ve enjoyed the cast interviews, be on the look out for our review on the new dolls coming soon.
