'The L.A. Complex': Cassie Steele on 'Degrassi' comparisons and bad auditions
Steele tells Zap2it that the new show ended up being a little racier and a little more mature than her previous gig, where she spent a decade playing the same character. As Abby, she gets to be a little more vulnerable and even a little klutzier as a character.
"Manny and Abby are very different people. I think Manny is very confident and easygoing and loves her friends," she says. "Abby is just so frazzled everywhere, headstrong. She's so much more of a rollercoaster."
In the premiere, Abby bombs an audition that was actually going pretty well by vomiting all over a piano -- and the casting director. Steele says that although she hasn't had any truly terrible audition experiences, she's certainly
"I've definitely done a few things that I wish I didn't do or come out of an audition and realized my bangs were pointing upwards or I swore by accident. It's just too nerve wracking. "She's definitely really strong and I think that's what makes her so complex," she laughs.
"The L.A. Complex" premieres Tuesday, April 24 at 9 p.m. on The CW. Check out Steele's full interview below, and stay tuned for more "L.A. Complex" goodies on Zap2it!
