Netflix’s ‘Anne with an E’ Actress Amybeth McNulty Talks About Nasty Criticism

by

The Anne of Green Gables reboot, Anne with an E returns on Netflix with season two. Although there are a lot of fans of the update, there are a faire share of critics. Some seem to think that Anne with an E is a far cry from the 1985 miniseries with Megan Follows. Whether you like the reboot or not, it’s clear that many take it a step too far with rude, unwarranted comments. Actress Amybeth McNulty talks about nasty criticism in a recent interview with Independent.

Amybeth McNulty’s Attitude Toward Unnecessary Criticism is Golden

Amybeth was fifteen when she read the initial responses from online trolls about Anne with an E. Most of these were based solely on McNulty’s appearance. McNulty voiced her shock and initial feelings to Independent.

“Bearing in mind this was the first thing I had ever really done that was really that big, I never expected criticism, because they hadn’t even seen my performance yet. I remember specifically the first 12 comments were just so nasty towards me and specifically towards my appearance. It really hit me. I was 15 when that trailer released and that’s such a tender age.”

She has agreed to take the high road, moving forward with her head held high. After letting the bad vibes roll off of her back, McNulty has stated that “in the end I’m just doing my job…and the criticism is not going to change anything I’ve done or will do in the future.”

Here at Cliché, we love to highlight new musicians that provide enjoyable content on the most accessible platforms. I owe many of my nights scouring for more material to add to my current music library to platforms like Bandcamp or even Pandora in its early days, recommending new artists and new sounds to my ears. Think of this as an ongoing mixtape series, from a person who wants the absolute best for you: good music and a great, growing collection. Read on for some indie artists you should know about.

His stage name, a play on words, references extensive journey or travel, from the Homer work “The Odyssey” and Odysseus’ decade-long post-war trek. This artist seems to do the same within his own lyrics in “Things.” The track brings memories of a car with suede or leather seats on a bright sunny day cruising through the neighborhood. How often do so many of us fall into the trap, believing that no one understands what we’re going through during our trek in this life? The rapper speaks of the common habit, but in the end, we’re going through the same ‘things.’ (So I’m holding onto pressure like it’s all mine/That ain’t sweat, it’s just the way I keep the floor shined/Everybody queued up in the long grind/Thinking that we next in the short line) The beat and pacing may be a bit off for us all, but sometimes the lyrics, the show, or presentation, may read the same.

Intro Track: “Things”
New Listen: “Like Really”
