Nickelodeon actress Kennedy Slocum is taking J-14 readers behind-the-scenes of her new show W.I.T.s Academy with some seriously fun photos of herself and her co-stars on the set of the series. Kennedy also chatted with J-14 about the show and her character, and we can't wait to tune in for the new series when it premieres on October 5th at 7pm.
Kennedy spilled about her character, Ruby, "My WITS Academy character is Ruby Webber. She’s very manipulative, and a little bit of a control freak. She has an instant problem with Andi as soon as she gets to the academy because she is the first witch born without powers in her entirely family, and she carries an insecurity about that. When Andi, a human, comes to the academy, she doesn’t understand why someone without powers who is totally okay with that could come in and try to beat her in the competition."
Kennedy not only loves WITS Academy, but also loves being a part of the Nickelodeon family! She told us, "Being a part of the Nickelodeon family is absolutely crazy because it’s always something growing up you watch Nickelodeon and you’re like, ‘I wonder what those kids are actually like, and I wonder how much they work, and what’s it like,’ and now seeing the opposite side of it all, and seeing how down to earth and friendly all of these people are, and how much they want to include you in this family, it’s so fun!"
Kennedy also revealed why fans should tune in for the new WITS Academy series, "Viewers are going to love this show for a lot of different reasons because it’s a spin-off of ‘Every Witch Way,’ which was received so well, they’ll be excited to see how that continues, and see Andi in a magic realm. It will attract new viewers as well because of how much magic and new things that are happening – there are a lot of teens and kids my age, and a lot of younger kids as well – it’s going to draw kids of all ages to come and watch the show."
