Lilia Buckingham: The 411

BRAT - The Valley Capri-78.jpg

Lilia Buckingham plays Autumn on Total Eclipse AND Dirt, but on her off-time she's planning on taking over the world. Here's a sneak peek into the workings of her busy mind:


Lilia, you play Autumn on two different Brat shows. Of all the scenes you've shot, what's your favorite and why?

We have this really intense scene in Dirt 1B with basically the whole cast and it just felt so real and emotional. That was really amazing to shoot! Also the scene in Total Eclipse where Diana and Morgan try out for the cheer squad, we had a blast doing that scene together.

Where are you from and what's your birthday? 

I'm from LA and I was born on April 9th! I'm an Aries. 

What do you love about being on set? 

Getting to do what I love while hanging out with people I love!

What do you hate about being on set?

How sometimes it gets to be 110 degrees outside and there's no air conditioning! 

What would you tell someone who sees your life as perfect and glamorous?

I'd tell them not everything is as it seems. We're all human, and we all have our issues. Social media is always filtered. We show people what we want them to see, so remember that we're all more than just our Instagram accounts. 

What's your favorite thing to do when you're not on set?

Reading, writing, or being with my friends!

What's your favorite TV show these days?

Sharp Objects on HBO. It's super creepy, but I'm hooked. 

What's your favorite YouTube video that you've posted?

My Behind the Scenes of Total Eclipse vlog! It was just such a fun day getting to be back on set and with the cast that I think the video reflects that. 

Is there a celebrity you were really excited to meet? 

My mom is close with Holland Roden from Teen Wolf and when I met her I kind of freaked out a little bit on the inside. I feel that Lydia (her character on Teen Wolf) is so much like Autumn, so I studied her character and took notes on how she played such a complex "mean girl." I think she's an amazing actress so meeting her felt a little unreal.

If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?

I think I'd want to be Meryl Streep or Emma Watson. Just to see how their minds work, how they manage to transform into completely different people. That'd be amazing.

Before we wrap up, can you tell us one last fun fact about yourself?

I am obsessed with baking! I'm not very good at it, but I love it!
