With Mother’s Day just around the corner (it’s this weekend!), our friends at Zooey magazine recruited some of our fave celebs to reflect on the best thing their mom’s have done for them.
Teen Beach 2 star Garrett Clayton opened up about the sacrifice his own mom made for him: “When I first spoke to my mom about wanting to be an actor, she was the person who clued me in to the reality of the situation. She said, ‘If you get your grades up, and keep them up, I’ll help you get into acting. Make sure this is something you really want, because it will be years before anything happens’.”
He continued, “After I went about getting my grades up, she got me a meeting with an agent in Chicago and a meeting with an agent in Detroit (my hometown). From that point on, it was me and my mom taking Greyhounds back and forth for years. She taught me what it means to really want something and have to work for it; nothing worthwhile in life is handed to you.”
Teen Beach 2 picks up at the close of summer. With surf season over and high school back in session, laid-back Brady and studious Mack’s relationship is headed for a wipeout when they receive a surprise real-world visit from their 1960s silver screen friends, Lela and Tanner, who have remarkably departed “Wet Side Story,” quickly followed by their 1960s bikers and surfer friends led by Butchy, Cheechee and Seacat.
Knowing first-hand that the “real” world and the movie world don’t mix, Mack, Brady and all of the “Wet Side Story” friends must quickly devise a plan and use the magic of Lela’s necklace to get everyone back to their movie world before it’s too late.
Ross Lynch shows off his buff arms in one of three new clips from his upcoming DCOM Teen Beach 2!
Also starring Maia Mitchell, Garrett Clayton, and Grace Phipps, the TV movie is set months after surfer sweethearts McKenzie (Mitchell) and Brady (Lynch) return from a summer adventure that transported them into Brady’s favorite 1960s beach party movie, Wet Side Story.
But they receive a surprise real-world visit from Lela (Phipps), Tanner (Clayton), and their other newfound surfer and biker buddies.
