We are back with another exclusive “One of Us is Lying” interview! This time around YEM talks to Sara Thompson, who plays Vanessa Clark, girlfriend of TJ and best friend to Addy in the show. In our interview with Sara, we discuss many topics centered around her character, other characters in the show, how she prepares for her role, behind the scenes moments and other things all about “One of Us is Lying”. But before we jump into our interview and give you a link to where you can watch it, let us discuss the show’s synopsis, where you can watch it, Sara’s character, and her career!
Four distinct personalities are followed as their lives develop in “One of Us is Lying” after their classmate Simon Kelleher passes away while in detention after drinking from a tumbler coated with peanut oil.
The four protagonists of the series are Bronwyn Rojas, Nate Macauley, Addy Prentiss, and Cooper Clay, who were all in detention with Simon. They were all detained for allegedly bringing their phones to class, but the devices were planted on the students and were not their own smartphones.
Simon accuses them of fitting into four stereotypes while in detention: the jock, the brain, the princess, and the criminal. An automobile accident briefly diverts the teens’ attention. Simon then experiences an allergic response.
The remaining four students are made suspects in Simon’s killing because they each had a reason to murder him: Simon ran the salacious gossip app called About That, and his upcoming post would reveal their most sinister secrets. The accusations force the secrets to surface because of the alleged murderer’s Tumblr entries.
The four suspects develop a close bond at school at begin to stand up for one another as they are frequently teased and taunted by their peers. They all firmly feel that they are innocent and try to learn the truth, even at their peril.
Sara Thompson, as we mentioned before, plays Vanessa Clark. Vanessa is Addy’s best friend and the headstrong, popular girl at Bayview High. Sara seizes the opportunity presented by Simon’s passing to increase her fame and reputation. She is also TJ’s highly sought-after girlfriend.
