Danielle Campbell outshines our JJJ coasters by a mile in this new shot from our recent interview.
The 16-year-old actress chatted with us about her upcoming film, Prom, high school dances, love triangles and what she would’ve loved to get for her 16th birthday. Check it out below:
JJJ: Hi Danielle. Tell us about Simone, your character in Prom.
Danielle Campbell: Simone is a sophomore, which is just like me in public high school. She has kind of just blossomed over the summer. She is kind of just discovering herself and finding herself this year because sheâ€™s now getting noticed by boys, like one of the seniors, a very popular boy, Tyler Barsow. Sheâ€™s trying to figure out who she is right now. She loves music and she plays her guitar all the time and thatâ€™s her favorite thing to do. So this is kind of her coming out year.
JJJ: Are you the type of girl who plays guitar?
DC: You know, I started to want to pick it up. My brother is really good at guitar, so he started teaching me a couple of things. Playing on set, Nolan Sotillo, he is really good at the guitar, so he was teaching me a couple things too so I would like to pick it up more. That boy knows how to sing. He is a man of all trades.

JJJ met up with Danielle earlier this month to chat about her character, Simone Daniels, who is described as “the fresh face who has been undetected by every guy’s radar…until now.”
Danielle shared with us, “Simone is a sophomore in high school, which is just like me. She’s just blossomed over the summer. She’s really just finding and discovering who she is and is now really being noticed by boys especially Tyler Barso (played by De’Vaughn Nixon), who’s a senior. Simone loves music and is always playing her guitar. This is really her coming-out year.”

While Nicholas Braun may not have any luck asking girls to prom, Danielle Campbell does.
JJJ caught up with the 16-year-old actress earlier this week and she told us how she asked a guy to Turn About, an upcoming dance at her school in Chicago where the girls as the guys.
“We have a dance called Turn About, where the girls ask the guy. I asked one of my good friends named Ryan. I cut out letters of Turn About and put an inside joke on the back of each letter,” Danielle dished. “It was like a huge scavenger hunt. The last one sent him to my house. On my front door, I had a sign that said ‘Bring Me Your Answer.’ I had two other cards on there with ‘Yes’ or ‘No.’”
“But, of course, he brought the yes one in,” she laughed. “So, we’re going to Turn About next weekend and I’m really excited.”
TELL JJJ: What was the most creative way you got asked out?
