What is 'Second-Born Royals' about?
Peyton's latest project, The Secret Society of Second-Born Royals, features her in the lead role. Peyton plays Sam, the second in line for the throne of Illyria. Sam is not very into the idea of being a royal, but discovers that, because she's second in line, she will be given a superpower and a chance to protect the world. In preparing for the role, Peyton said she found she had a lot in common with her character.
“Honestly, I connected with Sam a lot from the very beginning, from the very first time I read the script because we both have this natural instinct to want to do things ourselves and to be super independent," Peyton told Collider. "And I think that characteristic can be both good and bad, you know? It’s great to be independent. It’s great to want to do things by yourself, but in a sense, it sort of distances you from other people sometimes."
"And when you’re not asking for help, when you’re not pulling people into your life, you can feel alone," she continued. "So I think that’s definitely something that I see in myself that I see in Sam, and that is both a great strength and can feel like a weakness depending on how you use it.”
