Joey King cuddles some stuffed animals close to her as she visits FAO Schwartz in NYC earlier in the week.
The 11-year-old actress caught up with JJJ to chat all about her new flick, her Ramona-isms and the funniest thing that happened on set. Check it:
On how she won the role of Ramona: “It took almost a year process to go through all the auditions and everything to see who they really wanted for Ramona. It was a long process but it was so much fun and Iâ€™m happy I got to play her. We have some similarities and differences. Her and I have like the personality. Weâ€™re both really energetic, outgoing and she has a sister. I have two. But there are some differences too. Like she has a cat â€“ I have three dogs.”
On her favorite on set story: “Oh! Hereâ€™s a good one. Me and John [Corbett], he and I planned this out. He wanted me to pretend in a scene – this was the beginning of filming â€“ He said, ‘Joey, I want you in the scene to pretend to get really mad at me’ and I guess I did a convincing job because the producers came up to us afterwards and said, ‘Donâ€™t ever do that again. You almost gave us a heart attack.’ It as so funny.”
On how she bonded with the cast: my favorite about the castâ€¦ they were all so nice people. I love working with Bridget [Moynahan]. She was always so sweet and we always had fun. John [Corbett], heâ€™s such a goofball. Heâ€™s so hilarious and Selena [Gomez] â€“ weâ€™re like sisters now. Everybody on set was fun to work with and I really liked the storyline because itâ€™s really based on the books. I actually think itâ€™s good that they mostly base everything on the books. I think thatâ€™s nice.
