    • Condor stars alongside Cole Sprouse, Mason Gooding, Emily Rudd and Zach Braff.

    • In February, it was announced that Condor will also be starring in “Boo, Bitch,” an upcoming eight-episode series on Netflix, reported Variety.
    • In the half-hour series, the actor plays a high school senior who “seizes the opportunity to change her narrative and start living an epic life, only to find out the next morning that she’s a ghost.”
    • Condor is also set to star in “Girls Night,” a comedy with Brianna Hildebrand (“Lucifer,” “Deadpool”) that is currently in pre-production.
