    Edmonds native Brett Davern is starring in MTV’s new comedy “Awkward,” which premiered in late July to decent ratings and glowing reviews, according to a story Wednesday from our online news partner The Seattle Times.

    The road to a starring role in “Awkward” began at Madrona School in Edmonds, the Times said. “It’s weird to say an elementary school has a drama program, but they actually do,” Davern said of Madrona K-8’s renowned children’s theater program, noting he auditioned for his first musical in fourth grade.

    At Edmonds-Woodway High School, Davern wanted to join the freshman football team, but being “below five feet tall and less than 100 pounds, I got my butt kicked.” Instead, he auditioned for the soprano lead in “Oliver!” when his voice had yet to change.
