Kiersey Clemons talks all things Sophia and 'Eye Candy'

On MTV’s Eye Candy, if Sophia (played by Kiersey Clemons) had her way, life would go back to normal. The terrifying Flirtual killer, and the string of murders, would no longer be tormenting her life or her friends. Her attention would be on running IRL, her friendships with Lindy and Connor, and her fabulous life in New York City. No killer in sight to ruin things!

We chatted with Kiersey Clemons about Eye Candy‘s resident party girl and her thoughts on the drama with the killer!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COMMUNITY: Sophia is a fun character on Eye Candy. What have you loved about playing her?

KIERSEY CLEMONS: I think that she is someone I want to be like, because when she wants something, she goes after it. I’m the same way: I think I’m a go-getter too, but she’s more aggressive than I am. [Laughs] I get to be that part of me through my job, which is cool.

Do you find that she’s similar to you?

I think we’re similar. We’re both sassy, and our friends are a priority in our lives. We’ll do anything for the people we love; I think that we’re similar in that way. She’s definitely more fashionable than I am.

What has been your favorite moment from filming Eye Candy?

Oh, that’s a hard question. I would need to go back to look through pictures and talk with everyone to remember. But I think overall, being in New York made the whole experience what it was. It was a lot easier for us to hang out and get to know each other. The people, the cast—those were my favorite parts.

The story with the Flirtual killer is definitely getting intense. How would you handle the drama with the killer differently from Sophia?

Well, she wants to go away–she wants to leave New York. I think that would be my same first reaction. She allows Lindy to do her thing; she’s very understanding of what’s going on. Sophia doesn’t want to stop Lindy from figuring out who her sister is and finding Ben’s killer, but I personally would be like, “We need to chill, it’s getting really serious.” I don’t think I would be as down as she is.

Especially with all the murders, and the break-ins in her apartment …

Yea, I’m pulling out of all that. [Laughs]

Are you surprised Sophia is still living with Lindy?

No, I’m not surprised—that’s so Sophia. That’s the thing, though, I wouldn’t. I would be like, “No, one of us needs to go. You gotta take it somewhere else.”

How would you describe the difference between the friendships she has with Lindy and Connor?

I think with Connor, if he was doing all this with the killer, Sophia would make it all stop and knock some sense into him. But with Lindy, she lets her be the independent woman that she is. Her and Connor’s relationship is more straightforward, and maybe not as sugar-coated.

Obviously Sophia and Lindy have a real friendship. They’re like each other’s family; they’re definitely not as harsh with each other. Connor and Sophia aren’t very good with words—they pick at almost everything about each other—but I guess that’s what makes their friendship. It’s a very honest but brutal friendship.

If you had a choice, who would you want as your friend: Lindy or Connor?

Well, everyone needs a gay best friend, so I would pick Connor. [Laughs] Like, one of them has a stalker, so naturally I would go with the safe option!

Speaking of the Flirtual killer, any hints at who it could be?

I feel like anything I say is going to be held against me, or everyone is going to be like, “Oh, it’s exactly who it is because she said it.” I thought the whole time that it was going to be someone totally random. I’m the type of person who thinks it’s a random person from the Cyber Crimes team, like someone we don’t even see—which may or may not be the case!

We have a really great writer who wrote the show really well, so it’s definitely someone who, maybe if you don’t know them yet, you’re going to get to know them.

You’re actually one of my top bets for being the killer. It’s either you or Tommy.

You know what, from the first table read for the first episode, it’s changed every time. Every episode, you’re going to think it’s someone else, to be honest. But by the next episode, you’re not going to think that anymore—and that’s the best part.

For a couple of table reads, I was like, “Oh my god, Casey [Deidrick], it’s so you, it’s you!” And then sometimes I would be like, “Oh my god, is it me?” or, “Is it Lindy? Is she just crazy and she’s making this all up in her head?” There’s so many things that it could be.

Any fun teasers you can share coming up for Sophia in the next episode?

In the next episode, it’ll be taking place at IRL. She’s opening up her club to Lindy to throw a party to get the killer to come, and it kind of backfires. It turns into this giant mess; Sophia is trying to keep everything under control. It’s fun because everyone plays their part, even though Lindy and Connor aren’t the best of friends, and they weren’t on the best of terms the last time you saw them. Everyone comes together and they all do what they need to do to catch this person. But I can’t tell you if they catch them or not. [Laughs]

Where can your fans see you next?

My movie Dope is coming out in June, so everyone can look out for that.

Eye Candy airs Mondays at 10/9C on MTV.
