'It's been fun'

"It's really hard to put words to it because there's a familiarity there, and then there's also the pressure of who she is now and what has changed and what is still the same.

''When I was younger, I don't think I was putting a lot of effort into creating a role that was Lizzie McGuire. I think Lizzie McGuire was who I was at that time. I'm trying to use a little piece of that. Also, I think she has a little more confidence than Lizzie McGuire did when she was 12. She's made a pretty cool life for herself. It's been fun," Duff told Elle magazine.

I filmed with them all this week, and it's a trip, it's crazy. ''We want the show to be able to stand alone and not be just a full extension of the one that was almost over 15 years ago. We want it to feel fresh but also serve up some nostalgia.''
