Sloane Morgan Siegel & Caitlin Carmichael Go Behind-the-Scenes of 'Dwight in Shining Armor'

Sloane Morgan Siegel & Caitlin Carmichael Go Behind-the-Scenes of 'Dwight in Shining Armor'

The premiere of Dwight in Shining Armor is right around the corner and stars Sloane Morgan Siegel and Caitlin Carmichael are taking JJJ behind-the-scenes!

The co-stars shared their favorite pics from filming including some dramatic moments, their turtle cast mate and taking a turn behind the camera!

The show follows Dwight, a 21st century teen, who falls into an ancient, underground chamber and lands lip-to-lip with Gretta, a gothic princess who has been magically sleeping for a thousand years.

With Greta awakened, the duo must take on medieval villains until her hordes of enemies are defeated.

“Dwight is the outsider to a rich world of characters, customs, creatures, and artifacts. I love being able to play the person that’s new to the whole knights and dragons scene. I get to learn and experience everything for the first time and that’s a whole lot of fun as an actor,” Sloane told JJJ.

Dwight in Shining Amour premieres on Monday (March 18) BYUtv.

Sophia Lillis Teases Ideas for Future 'Nancy Drew' Movies! (Exclusive Interview)

Sophia Lillis Teases Ideas for Future 'Nancy Drew' Movies! (Exclusive Interview)

Sophia Lillis‘ new movie Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is now in theaters and hopefully it’s a big success as she already has some cool ideas for a sequel!

The 17-year-old actress has been reading the “Nancy Drew” books and already has a favorite story that she’d like to turn into a film!

Find out what Sophia told us in our exclusive JJJ interview:

Just Jared Jr: Nancy Drew is such an iconic character. Were you nervous about taking the role because of that? Was there any kind of pressure for you?

Sophia Lillis: Yes! It was a lot of pressure! She is such an iconic character. Even though I didn’t read too many of the books when I was younger, I certainly knew who she was. And everyone on the crew were huge fans and kept coming up to me saying how important she was to them-so, yeah, lots of pressure.

JJJ: The Hidden Staircase is actually the second book of the novel series. Did you know about the series before taking the role? What changed from the book?

SL: The character in the book is much less reliant on her family and friends. In the book her Dad is barely even there but the movie really focuses on her relationship with her Dad after the death of her Mother. In the book she really goes off on her own to solve the mystery but in the movie she definitely needs the help of her friends.

JJJ: What kind of bonding did you do with the cast before kicking off filming, if any?

SL: We had a week of rehearsals. Katt Shea (the director) is also an acting coach so we played a lot of acting games. We would do a scene like we were in a soap opera or sing it like a real opera. It was a lot of fun and helped us learn the lines at the same time.

Are the two reuniting for a possible reboot, or at least a new project together?

“There were our ups and downs about it, but man, I’d go back in a second,” Drake recently said in an interview of a potential reboot. It looks like something might be happening after all!
