Sofia Black-D’Elia is a talented actor who can express raw human emotions in a believable way that never dips into feeling cheesy, and her career has led her to developing this skill in incredible ways. Perhaps the most fundamental series for her was her role as Sabrina Pemberton on “The Mick,” and when chatting with her, Black-D’Elia revealed exactly why. “I don’t think I ever would’ve been able to do this job without them,” she explained, referring to Dave and John Chernin, the creators of “The Mick.” “I actually called them a lot during the making of this show for support and guidance and reassurance.”
“[T]hat show is, I think, definitely a bit broader and a bit darker than [‘Single Drunk Female’] in a weird way,” Black-D’Elia said generally of “The Mick.” “It’s like I viewed Sabrina as a true sociopath. I think she was capable of murder. Sam is not like that at all.” She added, “Sabrina blames everybody else for anything that goes wrong because she genuinely believes that to be the case, whereas Sam blaming everybody else because she doesn’t want to take any responsibility because deep down she knows she’s a s**thead.”
Black-D’Elia considers Sam and Sabrina completely different, but her experience playing Sabrina – as well as becoming “best friends” with the Chernins — undoubtedly prepared her for her comedy work on “Single Drunk Female.” Ultimately, Black-D’Elia said, “‘The Mick’ helped me enormously.” So, what do you think about “Single Drunk Female” so far?
