Kiernan Shipka Reveals Why She Was Drawn To Role of Sabrina

Kiernan Shipka graces the December 2018 cover of Seventeen magazine.

Here’s what the 18-year-old Chilling Adventures of Sabrina starlet had to share:

On why she’s drawn to Sabrina’s girl power: “I gravitate toward feminist content because that’s just who I am. But there was something so cool about this show being so feminist while still having this very separate fantastical element. It’s sort of set in this “timeless” period where there aren’t many references to pop culture, or what’s happening now or what happened in the past. But at the same [time], it’s related to what’s happening in many different ways and resonates on so many levels.”

On being too busy to date: “I’ll wrap on Saturday at 6 a.m., so I’m pretty much useless on Saturday. And then Sunday, I have to get all my stuff done for Monday. Occasionally, the cast can drive me out for a fun time, but work is my number one priority right now.”

On the best advice she’s ever received: “Stand up for yourself, and be your best advocate. That’s something that’s so important and can be applied to any career. I’ve definitely learned to speak up when it’s called for and to ask questions and to not be afraid to own it and just go for it. And being supportive of other women is always essential—essential! It’s important to have conversations with other women. We are all in this together.”
