‘Mean Girls’ Musical Star Allison Winn Reveals How Her Caroline Krafft Is ‘Different’ From the OG Version
The actress also called her co-star Angourie Rice, who plays Cady Heron, ‘an absolute doll' and described what it's like to work with Tina Fey.
2024 is going to be so fetch thanks to the new Mean Girls musical movie! Actress Allison Winn exclusively opened up to Hollywood Life about her role, Caroline Krafft, what it was like working with Mean Girls creator Tina Fey and sharing the screen with Angourie Rice. This new version of Miss Krafft, Allison emphasized, is different from the one we all saw in the original film.
“I will say that Caroline in the first movie and in this movie is everything that Cady is afraid of becoming herself,” Allison explained. “In the first one, Caroline is unglamorous, she’s confident and openly smart. And, you know, she’s awkward. And that is just like — for Cady — looking in a mirror. So, in 2024, we’re going to have a similar type of fear, but very different characteristics; I’ll say a different reflection for Cady.”
As die-hard fans recall, actress Clare Preuss’ Caroline Krafft is the student whom Lindsay Lohan’s character, Cady Heron, goes head-to-head with during the mathletes’ competition against Marymount Prep. Cady ends up defeating her when she remembers what Ms. Norbury taught her class about limits, coining the infamous line, “The limit does not exist!” In the upcoming musical film adaptation, Angourie — whom Allison called “phenomenal – portrays Cady.
