“[Nancy] has taught me so much. I started this show as a young woman. I was at a similar point in life of figuring out who am I and what am I doing here and how am I supposed to go about life? So it’s been really special to go on this journey of growth with her,” the New York native said. “I think I’ve learned so much bravery and boldness from her, and that it takes courage to pursue the right thing and it takes using your voice and being decisive and making old swings. I’ve definitely taken that from her.”

McMann also expressed her willingness to reprise the role if the right opportunity came along, stating that she could potentially see herself stepping into Nancy’s shoes again. While the future of the Nancy Drew series is uncertain, McMann expressed her love for her character and the show as a whole.

“I think we all had a beautiful time working on it and love our characters dearly. You never know what the future holds,” she said.
