Sophie Turner volunteers to play Miranda in 'Lizzie McGuire' reboot


She’s got a picture-perfect plan.

“Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner has volunteered to play the role of Miranda in the new “Lizzie McGuire” reboot, which is currently on hold as the series searches for a new showrunner.

“Is Miranda appearing in this season? Because I’m here. I’m available. I am your new Miranda,” Turner, 23, told her Instagram followers on Monday night. “‘Lizzie McGuire’ people, please reach out to me.”

The Disney+ reboot series was set to premiere in 2020, but was stalled earlier this month when the show’s original creator quit.

“I’m obviously devastated like the rest of us,” Turner said of the production news.

The Disney streaming service announced plans to reboot the Hilary Duff-led show in August 2019. In November, the company announced that Adam Lamberg, who played one of Lizzie’s best friends Gordo, would be returning to the show. However, there was no news about bringing back her other best friend Miranda, played by actress Lalaine. Miranda appeared on the original run of the series from 2001-2004, but was not in the 2003 movie.

On Jan. 2, Disney+ released a video of its 2020 line-up, including a quick snip-it of Duff back as Lizzie, but eight days later, the creator and showrunner Terri Minsky mysteriously left the show, and the streaming service is still looking for a replacement.

“After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show,” a Disney spokesperson told Variety. “Fans have a sentimental attachment to ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and high expectations for a new series.”

Actors Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine and Jake Thomas, who played Lizzie’s family, are also set to return.
