The 26-year-old actor opened up to the mag about his highly-anticipated remake of Jem and the Holograms, and more! Check it:
On the Jem film: The movie is about bringing Jem into the new century and making it relevant. It’s about a group of girls and how they evolve on their rise to stardom. I play Rio, who is their road manager. Rio and Jem have a spark between them that is undeniable, which leads to an adventurous journey between the two.
On why he took the role: I initially decided to get involved with the project because it would be a chance to work with an amazing director, Jon M. Chu, and also to have an opportunity to work with Blumhouse productions again. I also loved the fact that they were reinventing Jem. I’d be stupid not to take this role.
On the Step Up franchise: I randomly heard through one of my friends a couple of years back about the auditions for a Step Up movie when I had just signed with a manager. Acting was so new to me, but I thought I’d give it a try. After a month and a half of auditioning, I got the lead role in Step Up Revolution and haven’t looked back since. When Step Up All In was presented to me, I, of course, said yes and the rest is history.
