Merit Leighton is telling us more about herself.
The 14-year-old actress voices Lucienda the Witch in Disney Junior’s Sofia the First and now she stars in the new series The Nerd Posse.
“The Nerd Posse is a project about standing up for yourself and being exactly who you are because ‘Itâs weird not to be weird,’” Merit told us. “Itâs a crazy bunch of programmers, gamers, anime, comic loving misfits, played by a group of super talented actors: Ben Stockham, Jacob Hopkins, Marlowe Peyton, Zoe Fowler, Izzy Eggerling, and the amazing Andrew Bowen.”
“I play Sailor Greyson a kawaii app programer who is also wildly obsessed with Cosplaying, Anime and Kpop!” she added. “I had so much fun with this character, and filming with this fantastic cast at the historic âSilent Movie Theaterâ on fairfax. It was a really cool experience.”
Check out 10 fun facts Merit shared with us:
1. When I was 12 I watched all 200 episodes of the original Sailor Moon within 6 months! My wish is that one day I get to voice Sailor Moon!
2. Benji is my nine-pound rescue dog and he is quite the little troublemaker! He managed to survive eating a razor, I swear heâs immortal.
3. I try to eat healthily, but I always fail because of my wicked sweet tooth. For instance, over the course of a month, when I was little, I ate an entire pound of straight sugar by the spoonful.
4. Whenever my boyfriend Jacob Hopkins and I go to the bookstore, we head straight to the Manga section. We spend hours reading Manga till they kick us out.
