Career[]

Career beginnings[]

Upon hearing a commercial on the radio for a Disney Channel casting call, she was able to get into acting. Her first acting part was in Aaron Sorkin's Molly's Game. She later became a series regular on the Netflix original series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

2021: Gossip Girl[]

Whitney booked the role of Zoya Lott on the HBO Max revival of Gossip Girl, which required her to fly from Canada to the United States. She lived alone at the age of eighteen in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, where she began filming the series with her thirteen co-stars in a secluded area of New York. She was still in high school at the time of filming, so production assigned her a teacher that would help her graduate. Ironically, her teacher at the time was named Nathaniel Archibald, which is one of the reasons why Whitney accepted him as her on-set teacher.[1]
