Ciara Bravo is opening up about Red Band Society in the April 2015 issue of NKD mag.
The 18-year-old actress chatted about the research she put in and working alongside Octavia Spencer, and more. Check it:
On Big Time Rush: “It was overwhelming at first, but I didn’t take the grunt of the fan base because it was the boys who had to deal with the screaming fan girls. I got to witness it a few steps back. It’s important to be nice to the fans because they’re the ones keeping the show alive.”
On Red Band Society: “I prepared a lot for this role. I did a lot of research so I could make sure I could do people suffering from eating disorders justice. I read books, talked to people who have experienced it and did research on the Internet. It was enlightening to learn more about this topic. It makes me appreciate life more. I saw loads of tweets from people who understood what she was going through, and ‘thank you’s’ as well. Red Band started off as a happy and healthy show and then deteriorated, really showing how diseases affect people emotionally and mentally.”
On Octavia Spencer: “Octavia is honestly full of the best energy, light spirited and constantly laughing. She’s got a boisterous personality and is so much fun to be around. Octavia has so much to teach about this business because she’s been in it for a very long time. She tells me always to put my own happiness first because that’s best for my mental state.”

The 17-year-old Red Band Society actress spoke with our pals Teen.com at the photo opp and got the scoop on what’s coming for Emma on the Fox show.
“The most difficult scene I had to do is coming up in [Episode] 110. Emma really, really breaks down. We thought that she broke down in 108 or 109 when she was throwing those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in her room, but this is a whole new level,” she shared.
Ciara added, “Like, panic attack, freaking out, she doesn’t know what to do, she’s scared, she doesn’t have anyone to talk to, she’s back in this environment that’s so toxic for her, which is her home. So it was incredibly difficult.”

We’re super upset about this news – Fox will not be ordering more episodes of Red Band Society after production on episode 13 is completed next month.
The hospital dramedy, which stars a great group of young talent including Astro, Ciara Bravo, Griffin Gluck, Zoe Levin, Charlie Rowe, Nolan Sotillo, will air one more episode next week before going off the air. The final three episodes will be scheduled at a later date.
According to TV Line, a second season of the show is unlikely. It opened to low ratings back in September despite positive reviews from both critics and fans.
