Some fans felt some characters’ arcs didn’t get enough screen time, like Twyla. Do you agree?
Many fans felt some characters’ arcs didn’t get enough screen time, like Twyla. I agree because she was the most prominent character in season one but not in season two. In the first season, she has a lot of depth and is more than just the ditzy waitress at Café Tropical. She is dating Patrick Wheeler, who abuses her and forces her into prostitution to make money for him.
After Season 3 ends with you putting your name on Café Tropical, can fans expect more of that moving forward?
After the season 3 finale, fans are wondering if Twyla will own more of Café Tropical. According to Sarah Levy, she doesn’t know what lies in store for her character but she does know that Twyla will always be a waitress.

Tell me about working on your new film project, Surreal Estate.
I had a blast playing the ditzy, yet troubled waitress and later owner of Café Tropical, Twyla Sands. I loved that she was a bit of a klutz with a heart of gold, and I was happy to have the opportunity to show off my comedy skills. I also enjoyed getting the chance to play her in one of her earlier years as an awkward teenager who wants nothing more than to escape her small town life.

Sarah Levy, who plays the ditzy yet troubled Café Tropical waitress and later owner, Twyla Sands, is no stranger to acting. She has been in several movies and TV series before landing her role on Schitt’s Creek. Her most notable work was in SurrealEstate as Rhonda, a young woman with a traumatizing past that she cannot escape. Sarah Levy started off as an actress at a very young age – at just five years old she got her first agent for modeling jobs. It didn’t take long for her to get into acting too and start booking commercials!
Is the daughter on Schitt’s Creek Eugene Levy’s real daughter?
This is one question that has been on the minds of many since the show premiered. As it turns out, Sarah is not Eugene’s daughter, nor does she have any family ties to him at all. Instead, she was cast in the role because of her talent as an actress and her chemistry with Catherine O’Hara.
How much did Alexis get from Twyla?
Alexis immediately knows that Twyla is the wrong person for her. She sees an opportunity, however, when she finds out that the Café Tropical is up for sale. She offers to buy it and give it to Twyla as a gift, but on one condition: if she leaves her job at the café, she’ll be given a more prestigious position.
Twyla takes the offer without thinking twice.
Is Twyla related to Levy?
Twyla is not related to Sarah, but they are close friends. They met when they were children and have been friends ever since. It was Sarah who got the idea for her character in Schitt’s Creek. I thought it would be really funny if she was so crazy and yet kind of normal at the same time, she told Entertainment Tonight Canada.
When asked how she became such a good actress so quickly, Sarah said it came naturally: I’ve always wanted to do this, I didn’t even think twice about being an actor.
Do Sarah and Dan Levy have the same parents?
