JJJ was so stoked this afternoon to see Italia Ricci‘s name on the second wave of 2014 Teen Choice Award nominations!
So we had to get the 26-year-old Chasing Life star on the phone to get her reaction.
“It is so cool! It never crossed my mind that I would even be in the same league as the TCA’s,” Italia told JJJ exclusively.
She adds, “I thought someone was pranking me. I keep refreshing the page to see if I’m still up there.”
Italia also sent her congrats to co-star Richard Brancatisano, who was also nominated, on Twitter.
ARE YOU EXCITED that Italia was nominated?
Italia Ricci and Haley Ramm dress to impress at the ABC Family panel during the 2014 TCA Summer Press Tour held at Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Tuesday morning (July 15).
The two actresses were joined by their co-stars Steven Weber and Mary Page Keller to chat up their new show, Chasing Life.
Executive producer Patrick Sean Smith told press at the panel that The Fault In Our Stars, “[made 'Life'] feel a little bit less scary to go to that place. I think we’re all fascinated by the end, and death, and [we] like to talk about things that make grownups uncomfortable.”
Don’t forget there’s an all-new Chasing Life episode tonight @ 9PM ET/PT on ABC Family!
FYI: Haley is wearing an Erickson Beamon necklace.
