Not only that, but McMann has said she was a big Nancy Drewfan as a kid.
She is, however, formally trained as an actress. She's beenon stage since she was 9, and in 2018 she graduated with a BFA from CarnegieMellon University. That served her well when she auditioned for this dream roleand impressed executive producer Stephanie Savage.
The original Nancy Drew was always a little too perfect formost of us, but this version is far from that, which McMann clearly digs.
