Marcus Scribner had never heard of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power before he was asked to audition for it. The show is now in its third season. Dreamworks and Netflix reimagined the classic cartoon with a cast of powerful princesses—and Scribner’s character, Bow, an upbeat archer and engineer. He doesn’t have magical powers like Adora, who can use her sword to transform into the mighty She-Ra. But Bow still helps fight against the invasion of the Horde. “I got drawn into the show because of its message that it’s ok to be different and to be uniquely you,” Scribner says.

Number of times Bow says “Best Friend Squad” in Seasons 1 and 2. That’s what he calls the core trio of Glimmer, Adora, and himself.
