Sofia Carson has a lot of things coming up this year, with a solo record in the works, and landing the role of the newest Pretty Little Liar on the series’ spinoff The Perfectionists, but first, she will appear on Famous in Love, and fans should be excited for this role.

During a recent interview with Young Hollywood, the star opened up about working with fellow Disney Channel alum Bella Thorne on Freeform’s Famous in Love and even non-Disney fans will enjoy this on-screen dynamic.

“It’s a small world. We always knew of each other, but we never met or worked together,” Carson told Young Hollywood about working with Thorne, who plays the show’s lead character. “She’s been great, it’s been really cool working with her.”

As for who Carson will be playing on the drama? She is stepping in as season two’s “mean girl,” Sloan, who is bound to cause some trouble for Thorne’s Paige Townsend as she continues to navigate the lifestyle of an aspiring actress.

“I can relate to her in the sense that she went to college. I went to college. She’s also kind of fashion forward and I love fashion as well,” Carson revealed about her new role. “She’s a little bit more of a baddie than I am. I’m definitely not as cool as Sloan, or probably as Ava. I’m not very cool at all. So, in that sense it’s fun to play the mean girl.”

Although we’re not used to seeing Carson as a mean girl, this character shakeup is just the beginning for the Florida native when it comes to acting challenges, and we’re ready to see her nail it.

Famous in Love returns for its second season on April 4, 2018 on Freeform.
