Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the talented young actress offered this, “Something that I worked on a lot with my mom, who is also my acting coach, is trying to remember that grief isn’t just crying.

I was like, ‘I want that! I want that moment!’”

Mikayla adds that she managed to portray the right amount of emotion and just the right time for her character. She added, “I feel like I definitely got that in the hospital when Trina found out her dad died. But then my mom always has to remind me there’s definitely different stages of grief. There’s anger, there’s the kind of forgetting for a second that your dad isn’t there and you are just trying to piece the moment. There’s trying to go on, there’s regret, there’s even laughter sometimes. I think that playing with those levels was the biggest part of trying to do a good job of the sadness. That was really important in my process, knowing that the grief is always there, but grief doesn’t always mean tears. I had to make sure to do different things so that the audience wouldn’t get bored!”
With that said, many fans definitely agree that Mikayla has been doing a phenomenal job of expressing all of those emotions, one stage at a time, too! Of course, fans will have to tune in to find out what happens next.
