Get to Know The Passage Star Saniyya Sidney

Thanks to the new FOX TV series The Passage, we've been able to follow the thrilling story of Amy Bellafonte. She's a character played by actress Saniyya Sidney, a girl you should know if you don't already.

Saniyaa chatted with Sweety High this week and shared fun facts. Her life isn't quite as "scary, suspenseful and action packed" as she says the show is (thankfully!), but it's just as interesting!
