How has she been reacting to the fame?
Of course, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons is truly no stranger to fame as she has already made her big break as Lily on Modern Family. However, being a famous TikTok star is a whole other thing, and fans have begun to know her for something else other than her famous role in the comedic sitcom. So what has that all been like for the star? The actress explained: “I did not expect it at all because I’ve been on TikTok since 2019”.
Aubrey Anderson-Emmons admitted to TMRW over the phone: “But then I woke up a few days ago and I saw that one of my videos blew up and it was insane”. When talking about making her content and asked how long it takes for her to plan and make her clips, the star said that “It depends on the song. I’m a perfectionist. It could take a day to learn the dance. A lot of them are super hard”.
Her mother, Amy Anderson, says that while she let her daughter use TikTok, she does monitor her actions on the social media platform regularly, and said: “She’s a good kid and she’s a smart girl and she’s on there just to have fun. She understands that when you put something out there the whole world is going to see it. It’s a fun way for her to have a creative outlet and I think it’s really cool that it’s encouraging her to dance”.
