If you’ve been keeping up with the new season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, you’ll want to tune into this interview! YEM got the chance to sit down with Liamani Segura, who stars as Emmy, a new addition to the cast. Emmy is an eighth grader at Camp Shallow Lake who gets cast as Young Anna in the production of Frozen. Check out everything Liamani had to say about her experience on set for the show in the full interview!
Liamani first tells us a little bit about how she got into acting, which was super interesting to hear about. HSMTMTS was actually one of her first roles ever, so talking to Liamani about how she went from growing up in Wisconsin to being on one of the most popular Disney shows was really cool. It was also great to hear Liamani share her experience of being on set and meeting everyone for the first time. Specifically, Liamani got close to Aria Brooks, who plays Emmy’s best friend Alex, and Sofia Wylie, who plays Gina. We loved hearing all about these on and off-screen friendships!
We also got to talk with Liamani about some of the behind-the-scenes action that took place during season 3. We talked about what it was like filming some of the audition scenes and some of the fun the cast had while filming. Liamani and Aria were the pranksters on set, and it was so great to hear about what they got up to! Liamani also shared some advice about being a young person in the industry, which was really inspiring. Be sure to tune into the full interview to hear Liamani’s perspective and how she grew her confidence as a singer and actress.
