Hilary Duff and the cast of TV Land's "Younger" stopped by AOL Build on Monday to discuss the hopes for their new show, which tells the story of 40-year-old single mom named Liza (Sutton Foster), who finds it difficult to re-enter the working world at her age. She ends up pretending to be 26, lands a job at a publishing firm and becomes friends with her younger colleague Kelsey (Duff).
So, what made Lizzie McGuire herself come back to television?
"The script was so perfect from the start," Duff said during the Q&A. "Obviously working with Darren [Star, creator of 'Sex and the City'] and hearing about some of the cast was exciting, but I loved this character for me and really felt like I got to take a risk and show a different side. Kelsey’s such a relatable character, which I love, but she has different sides to herself than I do, so it’s still challenging."
As for picking up her life and moving to New York with her 3-year-old son Luca in the fall, that was a different story. Luckily though, Duff and her little guy ended up enjoying the city so much and truly embraced leaving Los Angeles behind for a few months.
"I think it was a great thing for my life to have a little change and I did fall in love with Brooklyn," she gushed. "I think it rubbed off on me because I have blue hair now!"
