Celeb Secrets: Can you tell us a bit about this season on Bella and The Bulldogs?
Lilimar: “These last few episodes are probably the best two in the season. Itâ€™s really cool.”
Celeb Secrets: Why do fans love your character Sophie?
Lilimar: “Sheâ€™s someone that anyone can relate to and some people want to be like her in a way since sheâ€™s confident, has no filter whatsoever, tells everyone what the deal is, and makes everyone respect her and fear her. She has this confidence and sassiness that a lot of people really want to have. I have this sort of personality too in a way, because I put a lot of myself into this character. Itâ€™s a mixture of Sophie and me and I think a lot of girls are as tough as she is, or aspire to be.”
Celeb Secrets: What are your favorite behind the scene memories?
Lilimar: “Before a run through, we have a dance parry with a random song, and then a huddleâ€“ those are always fun times!”
Celeb Secrets: Whatâ€™s it like working with your co-stars?
Lilimar: “Theyâ€™re awesome; honestly theyâ€™re such a breath of fresh air. At first I was nervous wondering what I would do if I had to work with people I donâ€™t like â€“ but no! We all focused on getting along and weâ€™ve never had a fight or anything theyâ€™re so funny and professional and great to work with.”
Celeb Secrets: What are some of your other hobbies?
Lilimar: “I used to model and still do I also enjoy reading, (I spend my life at Starbucks), traveling, and hanging out with my friends!”
Celeb Secrets: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Lilimar: “Hopefully still acting and in a much better place. I hope a lot of people know my work and appreciate it. By then I hope to have done a couple movies â€“ Iâ€™m aiming to be some sort of bad character; I love being the bad character! *laughs*”
Celeb Secrets: What sets you apart from other child actors?
Lilimar: “It all depends; everyone has a different way of acting and portraying a character. There are some child actors that go over board and like to think theyâ€™re all that â€“ I like to think Iâ€™m more humble and I can thank my family for keeping me in check in that sense.”
Celeb Secrets: Do you have any advice for any rising actor or actress?
Lilimar: “Just know who you are! A lot of people are going to try to guide you in a way that might not be yourself so just know when to say yes or no, be yourself and be prepared for all the crazy things they might ask you to do.”
Celeb Secrets: Since we are Celeb Secrets, can you tell us a secret about yourself?
Lilimar: “On set they call me Juke Box because on set I know the lyrics to every song especially Halsey or One Direction. I know all the words after like one or two times after hearing it!”
