JustJaredJr: How did you land the role? What was your audition process like?
Jorge Vega: I went to a regular audition and to a callback – it was pretty simple and they didn’t take a long time to decide.
JJJ: How can you relate to your character Jorge? What do you like most about him?
JV: My character is a regular kid who needed a little encouragement to face bullies. Although I have not been bullied like my character, I can relate to him not fighting back the bullies. I like his courage in the last scene!

JJJ: What was it like working with Andrew Garfield? Any fun stories about filming you can share?
JV: Andrew was great with me on set – he was like a big brother. He was interested in why and how I became an actor and what I want to do next. He also helped me get into character. Marc Webb and him were great mentors.
JJJ: How did it feel to be on your first big red carpet?
JV: Awesome! I mean, I never imagined it would feel that great. To be able to finally share news about the movie felt good. And, to finally meet the rest of the cast was icing on the cake.
JJJ: Have you ever been starstruck meeting someone? If not, who would make you starstruck?
JV: Funny you should ask! At the premiere after-party I met Katy Perry and I was just completely starstruck. She is my favorite female singer and she kissed me! Someone took a picture and I was blushing!
JJJ: That’s amazing! So what do you like to do for fun?
JV: I like to play tennis and video games, specifically Minecraft. I also love to build Legos.
JJJ: What other projects do you have in the works?
JV: I am the voice of Ogre Doug in the new animated series Wallykazam! on Nick Jr. I love the series and my character. He is the resident animal expert and the heart of the show.
