You’re starring as Angie in the new season of Chicken Girls! How did you react when you found out you landed a role on the show?
SISSY SHERIDAN: I was actually in the Grand Cayman Islands when I found out I was cast as Angie. I freaked out for like ten minutes and then had to immediately start packing and leave straight for LA to start filming!
Were you a fan of Chicken Girls or any Brat series before being cast?
SISSY: I had seen Brat’s Instagram, and knew who the kids in the shows were, but had never seen Chicken Girls until I found out I got cast. Then I binged watched the whole thing!
What do you love most about acting?
SISSY: I love how acting is so freeing and you get to play so many different people and just be in the moment.
Many of your fans probably recognize you as the host of the DIY With Me series from Nickelodeon. What has been your favorite DIY With Me project to work on?
SISSY: SLIMEEE!! In episode 2 of Nickelodeon’s DIY With Me, I made a bubblegum fluffy slime, and it was so much fun to make. I really love slime, so it was awesome that I got to show the viewers how to make it! The bubblegum flavor also smelled really good LOL!
When you’re not on-screen, is crafting something you like to do at home?
SISSY: Yes! I love to craft and I’m always trying to make the newest DIY, although I don’t always succeed. ?
You’ve performed in quite a few theater productions, is there a dream Broadway show you’d love to star in?
SISSY: I would love to play Jenna in Waitress or Eliza in Hamilton one day!
If you could plan your perfect weekend, how would it play out?
SISSY: I would fly to the Bahamas or some tropical island with my besties, then we would go on a shopping spree at Brandy Melville, then have a photographer take artsy pics of us on the beach for Instagram! Also, there’d have to be a ton of food (but mostly desserts!).

Do you have any advice you’d like to share with your fans?
SISSY: I want to tell my fans the only person they need to please is themselves.

I also want to let them know that I love them so much and appreciate all their support.
