Marianly Tejada and Cooper Van Grootel on ‘One of Us Is Lying’

Marianly Tejada and Cooper Van Grootel star in the Peacock Original, One of Us Is Lying. The new series will launch Thursday, October 7 on the streaming platform. The season will be a total of eight episodes and be released over the course of three weeks, with new episodes dropping in batches on Thursdays.

Based on Karen M. McManus’s #1 New York Times best-selling novel, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five high schoolers walk into detention and only four make it out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.


Tejada plays Bronwyn in One of Us Is Lying. The actress is best known for her work in The Purge and Orange is the New Black.

Van Grootel portrays Nate. The actor is known for his role in Go Karts. Other credits include The Legend of Gavin Tanner and Mystery Road.


I had the pleasure of asking the duo about their characters, Bronwyn and Nate’s dynamic, their ship name, the genre, what advice they would give their younger selves, and much more!
