Quinn Copeland Dishes on Punky Brewster and her Perfect Weekend

Quinn Copeland is spunky, energetic, and extremely colorful, which makes her the perfect fit to play Izzy in the new Peacock revival of the iconic ’80s series, Punky Brewster!

Just like Punky Brewster, Quinn’s character Izzy is independent and totally fierce, while also a little rough around the edges. As an orphan, she’s been through a lot and has had to take care of herself at a young age. Punky sees a lot of herself in Izzy, which is why from the moment they meet, she knows that she has to make her a part of their quirky family. The show is sweet, comforting, and a ton of fun to watch, and Quinn totally steals every scene she’s in!

Outside of the series, Quinn is just as much of a showstopper! She lives to sing, dance, and perform, and even took on the role of Lulu in the Waitress musical. If you scroll through her Instagram, you can tell that she’s just as imaginative and creative IRL as she is on screen!

Get to know Quinn Copeland as she dishes on Punky Brewster, the similarities she shares with Izzy, and her idea of a perfect weekend!
