We spoke with Mika Abdalla on the Popternative show who stars in the teen comedy film Sex Appeal, which recently dropped on Hulu.

The Deets on Sex Appeal

Avery Hansen-White (Mika Abdalla) doesn’t do things she isn’t excellent at. So when her long-distance boyfriend hints at wanting to take their relationship to the next level, she sets out to master her sexuality, employing her oldest friend, Larson (Jake Short), as a test subject. In this hilarious teen comedy, Avery’s study results in the realization that there’s more to sex, and love, than mechanics. Relationships require both head and heart.

Cast: Mika Abdalla, Jake Short, Mason Versaw, Paris Jackson, Margret Cho, Fortune Feimster, Rebecca Henderson, Tate Hanyok, Hayden Szeto, Artemis Pebdani.

Filmmakers: Sex Appeal is produced by Jeremy Garelick, Will Phelps and Ryan Bennett for American High, Mark Fasano and Tobias Weymar for Nickel City, Kendrick Tan for Lit Entertainment, and Michael Glassman for LD Entertainment.
