Lexi DiBenedetto discovered her passion and dedication to her craft at a very young age and grew up in front of the camera. Before she landed her role on Nickelodeon’s series Knight Squad, she appeared on a few hit television shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family. When she’s not busy acting or working, you can find her going horseback riding and going to the beach. We chatted with Lexi DiBenedetto about her character, Prudence, her experience working on Knight Squad and more.
Cliché: How did you first get involved with acting? What inspired you to pursue becoming an actress?
Lexi DiBenedetto: I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be an actor. My parents had me in commercials and local theater when I was young, but that grew into a serious passion very quickly. I talked my way into an adult acting class and began a character study when I was 8 years old. I fell in love with it and knew it was what I wanted to do.
I love being able to bring important stories to life and being part of telling them and I also find people fascinating.
What’s the experience like working on Knight Squad?
The experience working on Knight Squad was a lot of fun. We were able to learn some stunts and wear the coolest costumes while we were filming on a set based in a magical land. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
Can you describe your character, Prudence? What are some of the character traits that you share in life with the role you play in the show?
Prudence is a quarter giant on her mother’s side which gives her tremendous strength and a huge heart. She is the caregiver of the group and is extremely loyal to her friends. I would say Prudence and I both share that we are loyal and determined. We also both never miss the opportunity for a snack.
What’s the message of the show and what life lessons do you hope viewers take away when watching the show?
I hope that people learn to embrace themselves and do the right thing. We focus a lot on what makes everyone unique, is their greatest asset.
What’s your relationship like with the rest of the cast?
We clicked right from the start and worked well together while we all found our way with our characters. It was a blast working with the cast.
What have been some of your favorite experiences in your career so far?
I’ve had so many wonderful experiences and I’m very thankful for all of them. However, Knight Squad has been a highlight of my career and I learned so much from working on it.
What was the best advice that you’ve received about the acting industry and who was it from?
The best advice that I received was from my parents and they told me, “Believe in yourself and work hard.” They tell me that weekly.
What are some things you enjoy doing when you’re not acting or working?
I enjoy being outdoors. When I’m not working, I like to go horseback riding and go to the beach.
Are there any future projects that you are working on?
I have a few things I can’t talk about right now. I’ll keep everyone updated on my social media accounts. You can follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook @dibenedettolexi.
