Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle do not simply share names with the characters they painting on Hulu’s PEN15, in addition they share the identical shut friendship in actual life. The manager producers and actresses — who play the roles of Maya Ishii-Peters and Anna Kone, respectively, within the hit sequence — have been pals since junior year of college, as each went to NYU’s Tisch Faculty of Arts for experimental theater. Now each 33 years outdated, their shut bond is palpable as they flawlessly mimic awkward seventh graders with a bit assist from prosthetic braces, horrific bowl lower wigs, and loads of early-2000s-approved outfits.
Just like their characters, Maya and Anna cheer one another on for his or her IRL accomplishments, blessing followers with a heavy dose of #BFFGoals each step of the best way. In honor of their weirdly fantastic friendship and PEN15‘s second season, be a part of me in wanting again on Anna and Maya’s finest photographs collectively, together with some hysterical behind-the-scenes snaps from the set of their Hulu present. Can they simply undertake me into their lady gang already?
