The 16-year-old actor opened up about his photography, learning something new on his new movie, and Girl Meets World. Check it:
On tackling real issues on Girl Meets World: “We did an episode about belief, we did an episode about feminism, so it’s really cool that we can incorporate that, especially in a children’s television program. [For 'Girl Meets I Am Farkle'], when we were shooting the episode, we had professionals look over the script just to make sure we were correctly portraying it. We wanted to make sure that we were doing it right. The whole reason we wanted to do the episode is that, people who have autism or Asperger’s, they’re just people. So I think it was really cool that we could portray that and shine a light on that and get people to realize that.”
On his new role in Mostly Ghostly 3: One Night in Doom House: “We just finished our second week of shooting and it’s been really great so far. We’ve been playing around with a lot of special effects. We’ve done some green screen and stuff like that. It’s a little difficult, but it’s not too hard to get used to. You just don’t know what to expect, so once they put it in post, it’ll be really exciting to see how it all comes together.”
On not really using social media for his photography: “She [my Mom] always brought her camera around. I think that’s how I got introduced to it and I played around with it. The past couple of years, I’ve just gotten really into it and I bought myself a camera. I just try to shoot whenever I can…When we filmed the pilot is when I got an Instagram and Twitter, and before that, I didn’t really feel like I needed to.”
In tonight’s episode, “Girl Meets STEM”, Riley is upset when the boys at school — more specifically Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis) — won’t let her participate in a science experiment and attempts to become more involved.
In tonight’s all-new episode “Girl Meets Belief”, Cory (Ben Savage) asks the kids to challenge one another’s beliefs to see if it changes their perspectives…and it looks like Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya are having a lot of different beliefs.
