All of our Alex Mack stans, please stand up. This exclusive interview with Larisa Oleynik is going to make you very-very- nostalgic.
Exclusive! Larisa Oleynik , the star The Secret World of Alex Mack and 10 Things I Hate About You, goes down a 1990s rabbit holeJan 10, 2020 at 6:44pm PST Now, Oleynik is back in the kid-friendly series The Healing Powers of Dude . She plays mom Karen to Noah ( Jace Chapman ), a middle schooler who has a? social anxiety disorder. After years of homeschooling, Noah enters public school with the help of an emotional support dog named Dude. Seeing Oleynik, who was the quintessential 1990s crush for many, as a mom in a TV comedy might be a shock to some. Oleynik, however, welcomed the shift in roles. "Being in the mom zone is the best! That's…what I'm going out for right now, not exclusively, but that's just where I'm at. And it's actually a huge relief," she said. Oleynik, who is not a mom in real life, said she has maternal instincts thanks to nieces, nephews and friends, and felt a kinship when she auditioned with her TV son. "And so, for me, it feels really full circle, especially since Jace is the age—I'm glad you asked me this question, nobody's asked me this—especially because Jace is the age that I was when I started doing Alex Mack. There's something about that that feels really sweet and perfect. I'm especially sort of tuned in to what he's going through. He and I actually read together at my final audition, he'd already had the job, but he did sort of like a chemistry read and I just felt so protective of him right away," Oleynik said with a laugh."So that really, really worked in my favor." Netflix The full circle moment also had Oleynik examining the difference between being a child actor then versus now in the era of social media. "Oh gosh, I mean, I'm so glad that none of this stuff existed when I was doing press. I mean, I barely know how to handle it now," she said. However, regarding the younger people she has seen dealing with new fame in the 2000s, she said"they're navigating it beautifully." "But I totally don't understand how you figure that out and how you deal with the pressure of likes and things like that," she said. When she was on Nickelodeon or starring opposite Heath Ledger, Oleynik had the luxury of just leaving it at the door."I was able to completely remove myself and just go on with my regular kid life. It's different now." After declining a deal for a fifth season of The Secret World of Alex Mack , she did leave it at the door and turned her attention toward education. The daughter of a doctor and nurse, Oleynik said education was always emphasized. She went to Sarah Lawrence to expand her mind and have time with her peers. Going to school also helped her out of a typecasting hole as the girl next door."There are worse things in this world," she laughed. Nickelodeon "Even if I'm saying I'm in the mom zone right now—but I'm very happy to be there—then I can take it upon myself to go do play or even just being in class where I get to explore other roles. I think being typecast is something...you can always work with it. You know what I mean? If you're really determined to take on different things, you can always find a way," she said. But there is a mom role Oleynik didn't seem too keen on pursuing: Alex Mack. Series co-creator Thomas W. Lynch Read more: E! News
