And Syzmanowicz is RiRi: "A vibrant and fun-loving member of the cheerleading squad, RiRi is often the pawn in Addy (Herizen Guardiola) and Beth's friendship drama. Saddled by a very ambitious mother who has huge dreams and high expectations for her, RiRi is anxious for freedom and eager to rise in her squad." (Deadline.com)
