Q&A: Kat McNamara


In the new Disney Channel original movie, Girl vs. Monster, actress Kat McNamara, 16, plays a classic high-school mean girl named Myra, who is also the lead singer of a band. But there is a spooky twist on her character. Myra “gets possessed by a monster, and she becomes even more evil,” Kat told TFK. The monster was accidentally unleashed by Myra's foe, a fearless teen singer named Skylar (Olivia Holt), who learns she comes from a family of monster hunters. Soon it’s up to Skylar to put a stop to the monster madness. Recently, Kat stopped by the TFK offices to chat about the Girl vs. Monster, bullying and some fun facts about herself.
