Famous in Love sneak peek: Bella Thorne really wants to be an actress

To audition or not to audition? That’s the question Paige (Thorne) and Cassandra (Georgie Flores) are facing in this exclusive clip from Freeform’s new series

Dating is hard enough, but try doing it as a celebrity.

That’s more or less the premise of Freeform’s upcoming series Famous in Love which follows Bella Thorne’s Paige, a college student and aspiring actress, as she earns her big break and falls for not one, but two, attractive costars… and maybe also her best guy friend.

In the exclusive clip above, Paige is grappling with the idea of auditioning for Locked, a surefire blockbuster based on “the biggest series since Harry Potter.” Her best friend, roommate, and fellow aspiring actress Cassandra (Georgie Flores) and wannabe screenwriter/indie filmmaker Jake (Charlie Depew) are on hand to give her a little push.

Cassandra assures Paige her acting is worthy of the big leagues, referencing her ability to convince her parents she’s a fan of math. It’s enough to persuade her, and they’re off on a shopping trip to prep.

The new show is based on the book series by Rebecca Serle who adapted the novels for television alongside Pretty Little Liars‘ producer I. Marlene King. Famous in Love premieres Tuesday, April 18, at 9 p.m. ET on Freeform.
