Whether it’s her roles in It and It: Chapter 2, HBO’s Sharp Objects, or the currently-in-theaters horror Gretel & Hansel, one thing is clear: Sophia Lillis is a star on the rise. And now she turns her attention to Netflix for I Am Not Okay with This, a series that boasts the combined talents of the minds behind Stranger Things and The End of the F***ing World, so it’s got a good shot of being a huge hit.
The series stars Lillis as an awkward teen dealing with all of the usual angst that comes along with being a high schooler, only on top of that she’s also dealing with her growing superpowers.
