Cast and characters[edit]

Delia Logan Lindy Garrett Jasmine
The main characters. From left: Delia, Logan Watson, Lindy Watson, Garrett and Jasmine. (Use cursor to identify)
  • Lindy Watson (Olivia Holt)[6] Lindy grew up geeky, nerdy, an outcast and on the athletic side. She walks into high school with a brand new look with her best friend who shows her how to be fashionable which she is now branching out and becoming a new girl.[7] In "Dance Fever", her nemesis is shown to be a girl named Sherri (Peyton List), and it also shows that she has had perfect attendance for 8 years without missing school. In "Snow Problem" it is revealed that Lindy is a good snowboarder.
  • Logan Watson (Austin North)[6] is very laid back, cool, chill and confident and has big plans on making his mark on high school. But those plans sometimes collide with his twin sister, Lindy.[8] Logan often tries to take the easy way out of things, doing that so much his friends have dubbed it 'Loganing'. Logan has feelings for Jasmine but he seems to not notice them.
  • Jasmine (Piper Curda)[6] is a smart, daring, and fashion-forward teenager. She is also always supportive of her four best friends. A fashionista since third grade, Jasmine thrives on good grades, pulling off daring pranks and having the perfect outfit for every occasion.[6][9]
  • Garrett (Peyton Clark)[6] is a bit of a mysophobic and can be obsessive about the most obscure details. His affinity for cleanliness and order constantly gets pushed to its limits by his four friends. In "Now Museum, Now You Don't", it was revealed that he has a habit of biting his nails. In "Lindy Nose Best", it is revealed that his last name is Spanger.[6] While Garrett tends to take things a bit too far to get to the bottom of hoaxes, he's usually right.
  • Delia (Sarah Gilman)[6] is a lovable, eccentric person. She is very outspoken and if there is something that shouldn't be said out loud, Delia has probably already blurted it out, much to her secret delight. In "Fireman's Freddy's Spaghetti Station" her last name was revealed to be Delfano. Her parents have once kept her in the basement, and she has to sneak out to her backyard if she wants to use the bathroom at night.
