Sabrina Carpenter plays Maya hart on Girl Meets World ad it's really hard to imagine anyone else portraying the role. Sabrina has really made Maya her own and in a recent interview, the starlet explained exactly why she's still so happy to be a part of this already-legendary show.
"We are so lucky to be able to further break the boundaries with the subjects that we cover, and really help this generation. The more and more that our show is going on, the more that we are in the know of what’s happening in the world, and that’s the audience we want to cater to," Sabrina explained.
The fact that everyone who works on the show is aware of how much of an impact they have on their viewers is not only important, but so commendable. The actress went on to talk about how Maya is rather "complex," and she herself has learned a lot from bringing this character to life.
"She’s gone through a lot, but she is also such a loving human being. I think she is very confident in who she is, and she might hide some of the bad things she’s gone through in her life with her confidence and with her rebellious attitude, but that’s just what makes her who she is. She’s blunt and she’s to the point, and she really cares about people. [Through Maya, I've learned] some things about teenage feelings – being a teenager and all the things that come along with it. There’s something new every day. Especially in high school, you meet different kinds of people, and they change your point of view and you’re changing every five minutes, and it’s really something crazy."
So not only is the audience learning some valuable life lessons from this sow, but the actors themselves are too. What a time.
