自那时候起, the 33-year-old actress has found steady work, but the roles she were initially offered usually asked her to play a similar character.

I definitely went through big frustrations of being like, ‘Why can I not get a shot at being someone else?” Duff recently said to Cosmopolitan. “Not that I want to dog every casting director out there, but there’s a very small handful of people who are character actors and can be hired for roles that are truly different from one another. From age 21 至 25, before I became a mom, there was a lot of frustration.

The star said in an Instagram post in February that she hoped to break free of the original show’s PG-tone, as the reboot was set to follow a 30-year-old Lizzie.

I’d be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30 year old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating,” 她写了, adding that she hoped her character’s experiences could remainrelatable.

It seems not all hope is lost just yet, as Duff told the outlet that producers arepretty confident thatthey can make a show that will please both its star and Disney, while keeping the property at Disney+.

I don’t want to do it unless I can speak to the people I care about, 和 [Lizzie] can be there for those people again.
