The American mystery drama series, One of Us is Lying is an adaptation of author Karen McManus's 2017 novel.
It is about five high school students at Bayview High who faces detention. The five students are Addy portrayed by Annalisa Cochrane, Bronwyn by Marianly Tejada, Nate by Cooper van Grootel, Simon by Mark McKenna, and Cooper by Chibuikem Uche. In addition to Alimi Ballard as Kevin Clay.
Moreover, while in detention, one of the students, Simon, dies of an allergic reaction. Simon being a snitch in the class, each of the four remaining students in detention had an individual motive to murder him. However, the initial examination reveals that his death is not by natural causes. Hence, an investigation ensues on all four of them.

Bronwyn is a Sassy, Brainiac, and Non-apologetic High School Teenager
Bronwyn is a tall woman with brown eyes and a tanned complexion. She wears specs and has long, curly brown hair that she wears in a high ponytail most of the time.
Her character Bronwyn, who is at the top of her class, is so focused on the future that she barely considers the present. Most of her peers respect her more than they like her, and a few of her opponents are curious how far she would go to go ahead.
She is a dedicated student who went to tremendous measures to succeed in school, including taking exam answers from her chemistry teacher's file cabinet. She doesn't enjoy being wrongfully accused of having her time wasted, and she has often expressed her dissatisfaction with her incarceration.
Bronwyn dislikes admitting she made a mistake, even if it was evident, like when Nate observed her stealing Simon's luggage. She is also boldly protective of the people she loves, even threatening Simon's life to protect her sister.
