Emily Osment and ​​Olivia Macklin Preview ‘Pretty Smart’

Emily Osment and Olivia Macklin star as Chelsea and Claire in Netflix’s new comedy, Pretty Smart. The season will be a total of ten episodes and begin streaming on October 8.

After getting unexpectedly dumped by her boyfriend, Chelsea (Emily Osment) — a high-brow, Harvard-educated intellectual and aspiring novelist — is forced to move in with her bubbly, carefree, not-so-intellectual West Coast sister, Claire (Olivia Macklin), and her three lovably eccentric, not-so-intellectual roommates: Grant (Gregg Sulkin), a distractingly handsome personal trainer, Solana (Cinthya Carmon), a former lawyer turned healer, and Jayden (Michael Hsu Rosen), a social media influencer. But Chelsea’s tough, sometimes judgemental exterior starts to soften as she gets to know her new friends, and they begin to form an unlikely found family.


Osment ​​is best known for her television roles in Hannah Montana, Young & Hungry, Almost Family, and The Kominsky Method.

Macklin can be recognized for her work in Filthy Rich, LA to Vegas, Radium Girls, and The Young Pope.


I had the pleasure of speaking with the duo about their characters, the friendship theme of the show, which character they’d want as their real life roommate, and more!
