JustJaredJr.com recently got a chance to catch up with Spectacular! hunk Nolan Gerard Funk. Check out what the 22-year-old actor had to say about acting at an early age and his most embarrassing moment:
On how he caught the acting bug: “From my dentist! I was only 13. I was diving at the time and I got a really bad toothache, so I really needed to find a dentist. My dive coach recommended somebody, and the dentist’s receptionist happened to be the wife of the dentist. She had kids in the business and she said, ‘Go check out this acting school!’and I did! But I’ve always wanted to sing and act every since I was a little boy.”
On how comfortable he was in speedos for diving: “The speedo thing was always a hard bullet to bite. I do remember one time, I had this really big crush on this girl and she came to watch me do a dive. That day, I forgot my speedo, so I went to the store that they had at the pool and I bought one. All they had was a size that was up from mine! I did a dive, I came out of the pool and I wasn’t wearing the speedo. (laughs) The girl was right there! It was so embarrassing.”
Thankfully, Nolan found his speedo in the pool and quickly put it back on!
Spectacular! airs THIS Monday, February 16 @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
