'It' Star Sophia Lillis Talks New HBO Miniseries 'Sharp Objects'

Sophia Lillis strikes a stunning pose on the cover of Schon! magazine’s new Issue 34, available now!

Here’s what the 16-year-old It actress had to share with the mag about her upcoming HBO miniseries Sharp Objects, in which she plays a younger version of the character also played by Amy Adams:

On preparing for her role in the story, which deals with Munchausen Syndrome: “Yes, the mother has that. I read the book after I got the part. It tells the whole story, so I knew what my character was dealing with when she was my age. It is a bit scary to think about. It was a hard experience for my character to deal with this mother who doesn’t really feel, who doesn’t really love her.”

On this being a recurring theme in her roles: “Yes, it seems to be. I always have really depressing roles and not good relationships with my parents, but I don’t think that’s true in real life!”

The issue also features Darren Criss, Cailee Spaeny, Olivia Holt, and Diplo.
