TBB Talks to … Alycia Pascual-Peña Star of Netflix’s Moxie


Alycia Pascual-Pena rose to fame when she secured the part of Aisha Garcia in Peacock TV’s reboot of Saved By The Bell.

This year, Pascual-Pena makes her feature film debut as Lucy Hernandez in Amy Poehler’s new film Moxie. Based on the bestselling book by Jennifer Mathieu, Moxie is a feminist chick flick for the twenty-first century that follows Vivian (played by Hadley Robinson), a shy 16-year-old, who finds inspiration from her mother’s rebellious past and anonymously publishes a zine that sparks a school-wide, coming-of-rage revolution.

We spoke to Alycia to get the inside scoop on just how much of the film was improvised and what it was like working on set with such a strong female cast…

Moxie is available to watch on Netflix now.
