We first asked Jordyn about her experience playing Shamiah in Home Economics. Jordyn said that she grew up with Shamiah, who grew up across the seasons, and was happy to play a character who was her age. Jordyn mentioned that they were both dealing with the same things, such as emotions, right now. She described that Shamiah is “very relatable” at times, like when she lied about where she lived because she was embarrassed about her family home, like some, if not most, teenagers would feel about their personal lives. Jordyn went on to say that you shouldn’t be ashamed of where you live, where you go to work, etc., and reminded you to keep your passion for your talent(s).
