Is Amy Faking It?

I don’t think so … in a recent interview with Terry Check of Cliché Magazine, Rita Volk, playing the role of Amy in the latest MTV hit, Faking It, is the real thing. The 23 year old actress, born in Uzbekistan before immigrating to USA at age 6, learned English and about American culture by watching movies. Acting came naturally to her which led to parts in TV commercials and theatrical plays while in middle school. After graduating from Duke University she decided to forego a more conventional career, and instead, pursue her love of acting. In 2012, she packed her bags and headed to LA like so many want-to-be actresses … auditioning again and again until luck/persistence/talent prevailed. During the casting call for Faking It, Rita read for the role of Karma, not once but three times. The casting director, Carter Covington, who also happens to be the series’ creator and executive producer, gave Karma’s part to Katie Stevens, and asked Rita to read the part of Amy. Magically, Rita truly bonded with the part of Amy ….. and she wasn’t faking it.
