In some ways, Gabby is similar to her Dead Kids character.

In an interview with Candy, Gabby shared a few similarities between her role Yssa and who she is in real life. For instance, they're both headstrong. They both know what they want and they make sure they get it. On the other hand, Yssa and Gabby are different when it comes to their mindsets: Yssa's more privileged while Gabby is more sensitive to those around her.
