Have you watched Netflix’s new series, Prince of Peoria, yet? Well, if you haven’t, get on that because it’s hilarious!

Gavin Lewis is one of the stars of the series and opened up to JJJ about playing Emil, a 13 year-old prince from a wealthy island kingdom, who gets hit with a bit of culture shock when he moves to the U.S. to live incognito as an exchange student.

“As an actor, I love playing Emil,” he told us. “His joy and optimism remind us to look for what’s good and positive in the world and in our relationships with others.”

Gavin adds, “I can’t imagine a better team than the people I worked with on Prince of Peoria. Every day, the cast, crew, creators, writers, designers and producers taught me what being part of a television family truly means.”

We learned even more about Gavin with these 10 Fun Facts. Check them out below!

  • I’m an only child. I don’t want siblings because I always get the front seat and I never have to share my bedroom.
  • In between takes on Prince of Peoria, Theo and I use the mini basketball hoop on the back of the bedroom door to shoot hoops.
  • I have type 1 diabetes. I always carry a bag with me so I have my necessary supplies. It’s super practical. All dudes need a man satchel.
  • I love to play guitar. I wrote a song. It’s about doughnuts. I’m considering starting a Go Fund Me page so I can get Michael Bay to direct the music video.
  • I like spicy food. It gives your tongue little fire hugs.
  • In an episode of Prince of Peoria, I had to stuff my face with chicken fingers, but they let me use french fries instead because cold chicken fingers make me gag… more than cold french fries.
  • When I was younger, I had to have a different fork for every type of food on my plate.
  • I built myself a gaming computer and I’m currently obsessed with COD IIII.
  • I think chinchillas are underrated.
  • I’ve always been homeschooled, and yes I’m socialized. I have lots of friends, and the majority of them aren’t imaginary.

DWTS Juniors' Ariana Greenblatt Says Her Salsa Was Extra Special - Read Her Blog Here (Exclusive)

DWTS Juniors' Ariana Greenblatt Says Her Salsa Was Extra Special - Read Her Blog Here (Exclusive)

Ariana Greenblatt is telling us all about her amazing salsa on last night’s Dancing With the Stars Juniors.

The 11-year-old actress and partner Artyon Celestine gave thanks to both their families with their fun salsa, which earned them 27 points.

Check out her exclusive behind-the-scenes blog below!

As Thanksgiving is near, we came up with who we wanted to give thanks to and who has impacted our lives. For me it was a no brainer, my family! My family has made so many sacrifices for me to be able to follow my dreams. Like they say, “It takes a village” and I have a very close village! It was so incredibly special for me to have my family here for this dance because no one lives in California. So the fact that both my grandparents came from across the country to surprise me made it so very special and I was determined not to let them down! It was also a chance for me to honor my Puerto Rican heritage by dancing the Salsa to Elvis Crespo’s “Pintame,” a song that has always been a family favorite. It gets us up and dancing! I even caught some crew members moving to the beat during camera blocking! So this one’s for you, Puerto Rico!

Rehearsals were crazy because a tricky part to any salsa is getting close to your partner and moving together. It’s a very close contact dance which is funny at first. It took some getting use to. LOL Brandon had some tough moves for us, especially for poor Arty who had to fully extend lift me and spin three times at the end of the dance when where both totally spent. Shout of to Artyon for pulling it off perfectly!

The night was filled with so many wonderful surprises like Mandla’s Dad Stevie Wonder coming on stage to sing “Isn’t She Lovely” while he danced the foxtrot with his awesome partner Brightyn Brems. I mean, c’mon, that’s pretty awesome! Backstage was also really chaotic, like crazier than usual, because even though there are only 6 contestants left, everyone had lots of friends and family in the audience. The atmosphere was electric! I really had a lot of fun introducing my grandparents to everyone, showing them around the backstage and ballroom. Everyone dressed up so nice. I was so proud to have them there and it was a really a big deal! To say this dance was extra special for some extra special people in my life would be an understatement.

Fun Fact: After the dance ended, I immediately looked over to my family and saw my Abuela crying tears of joy. I almost lost it right there but it meant so much to her to see me dance to this song. It made my heart so full. I wanted to run over to them and give them all a big group hug! I just really took in the moment and smiled. :)
