Meet 'Get Even' Star Bethany Antonia with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

Get Even is one of Netflix’s hot new summer shows and we caught up with Bethany Antonia, one of the rising stars from the show.

The 22-year-old actress plays Margot Rivers in the thriller series, which is based on the popular book series “Don’t Get Mad” by Gretchen McNeil.

The show follows a group of four high school girls who form DGM (Don’t Get Mad), a group determined to expose bullies at their school. When one of their targets is suddenly murdered, the girls realize someone is trying to frame them and set out to uncover the truth. The full season is streaming now on Netflix!

Bethany has appeared in some British projects throughout the past few years, but this is her biggest role to date. Check out 10 Fun Facts about her below:

  1. Before I realized I wanted to be an actor, I used to watch television programs and mimic what the actors were doing. I would write out the scripts from all of my favorite shows and films out on paper and perform them back for my family. I thought that was what everyone was doing, but turns out it was the acting bug grabbing a hold of me!
  2. I am from Birmingham, in England, which is the second biggest city in the UK and around 2 hours away from London. People from Birmingham are known as ‘Brummies’ and we’re told that we have a really distinct accent (even though none of us can ever hear it)!
  3. I’m a Capricorn!! I cling to my Star Sign like a badge of honor and always get very protective when NASA announces new horoscope dates. Capricorns are very driven, loyal, incredibly stubborn, hardworking and career-minded.
  4. I believe in The Law Of Attraction. I have been practicing the law of attraction for a couple of years now, and have complete faith in manifestation. I manifest things every single day of my life and believe that with unwavering faith in your abilities you can achieve anything you set your mind to. If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.
  5. I’m Vegan! I have been eating and living plant based since I was 16, so for the past 7 years. And I was vegetarian for 2 years before that. I initially went vegan because of my love for animals, and I have since learnt about the positive benefits that living a vegan lifestyle has on the planet, and on my body.

  1. I spent a chunk of my childhood growing up in France. I moved there with my mom and my grandparents when I was 6, and we stayed there until I was 11. I learnt the language within the first year and looking back, I’m so envious at how easily children pick things like languages up.
  2. I started teaching myself how to play the piano when I was 12 years old. I have never been able to read music, so I learned by ear, but I would love to learn! For my 18th birthday my mom gave me a beautiful white piano that I treasure and now has pride of place in my bedroom.
  3. I have taught my 6 year old Pomshi (A Pomeranian crossed with a Shitzu), Barnaby, how to sing with me. It’s the only trick he can do but I feel like a proud momma every time he does it.
  4. I love lists, and numbers, and making spreadsheets. I think in a past life I must have been an accountant or something because I LOVE them, and make them for fun.
  5. I would love to build and run my own animal sanctuary one day. A home with acres of land for rescued ex-farm and wild endangered animals to live in and run free. I haven’t quite figured out how I would get say a chicken, and an elephant to co-exist together, but I’m working on it!

Watch Get Even, now on Netflix!
