Jordan Fisher‘s head is still spinning just days after the premiere of Grease: Live.
Speaking with Cosmopolitan, the 21-year-old actor opened up about the mishap you didn’t see, his “Frenchy” Carly Rae Jepsen, his heartthrob moment and more. Check it:
On working with Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy: “She’s incredibly gifted, incredibly talented girl, very hard-working, very easy to work with. She deserves a stage the size of the world, like she got yesterday. We actually were talking yesterday about collaborating in terms of music and we’re going to try to make that happen.
On dropping “Counterfeit” just before the premiere: “We wanted everybody to have something to hear. It’s not the first single for the album, but it is a song that is on the album. We’re not doing the first push for the big single for another couple of months, but me and my team were all excited for people to hear [something], just in case they saw Grease and liked what they saw.”
On the behind-the-scenes moment that could’ve been a disaster: “There was one moment right after ‘Greased Lightning.’ It includes all of those wardrobe changes — I think a total of eight wardrobe changes in a matter of 10 minutes — [and] going from Stage 23 to Stage 26 to begin ‘Magic Changes.’ All that’s happening in my mind in between those two numbers it’s like, ‘All right, catch a breath. You only have a second.’ Then we hit a bit of a traffic jam. We hopped on the golf cart after ‘Greased Lightning’ and there was a truck that pulled up at an intersection that we needed to get by. [We] ended up making it all work, thank god.”
On being everyone’s new crush: “I really appreciate that. That’s very sweet. Like I said, I didn’t really expect what came last night. You can’t really prepare yourself. I feel like last night was a Super Bowl moment — and I’m looking forward to the next one.”
