Danielle Campbell outshines our JJJ coasters by a mile in this new shot from our recent interview.
The 16-year-old actress chatted with us about her upcoming film, Prom, high school dances, love triangles and what she would’ve loved to get for her 16th birthday. Check it out below:
JJJ: Hi Danielle. Tell us about Simone, your character in Prom.
Danielle Campbell: Simone is a sophomore, which is just like me in public high school. She has kind of just blossomed over the summer. She is kind of just discovering herself and finding herself this year because sheâ€™s now getting noticed by boys, like one of the seniors, a very popular boy, Tyler Barsow. Sheâ€™s trying to figure out who she is right now. She loves music and she plays her guitar all the time and thatâ€™s her favorite thing to do. So this is kind of her coming out year.
JJJ: Are you the type of girl who plays guitar?
DC: You know, I started to want to pick it up. My brother is really good at guitar, so he started teaching me a couple of things. Playing on set, Nolan Sotillo, he is really good at the guitar, so he was teaching me a couple things too so I would like to pick it up more. That boy knows how to sing. He is a man of all trades.

JJJ: Is Simone any different from Jessica, from Starstruck, for you?
DC: Jessica had a bit of a bite to her. She had an attitude. Simone is really sweet, but sheâ€™s still going to stick up for herself if she needs to. I think that really comes to play toward the end of the movie. Sheâ€™s true to herself. Sheâ€™s a down to earth girl. I think her and Jessica have some similarities too.
JJJ: Simone is involved in a love triangle. Have you ever been involved in a love triangle?
DC: I just started going out on dates and everything, so no. I think thatâ€™s definitely something you want to watch out for and instead of trusting everything and the guy, you want to trust yourself enough to choose what you should be doing in that situation. I think that would be a difficult one to be in, luckily I havenâ€™t been in one yet. Iâ€™m happy for that.
JJJ: You just recently celebrated your sweet 16. How does it feel?
DC: Thank you! I donâ€™t think it will hit me until I have that license in my hands. Iâ€™m so excited. I was on an airplane for my birthday, so I havenâ€™t made it there yet. Iâ€™ve had my permit for a year now, Iâ€™m so ready
JJJ: What would be your dream car?
DC: Dodge Challenger. I think thatâ€™s a classic car. Iâ€™m really big on cars because I have a brother. Camaros are gorgeous. I love Mustangs because theyâ€™ve got a great motor engine. The car that I get to drive [right now] is a Toyota Sequoia, itâ€™s this big truck. I mean, I love my big cars.
Stay tuned for more of JJJ‘s interview next week!
