The two took some time to pose for pics inside together, apart and with their moms. How sweet!
“March 17th, we have an episode coming up that I think you guys are going to really like. There’s a falling piano with many things happening in the episode,” Laura recently told JJJ of this weekend’s Austin & Ally episode. “Ally likes Austin, Austin likes Ally. Austin liked Kira and kinda wanted Kira in his life. But then Ally got over stage fright, Austin and Ally kissed, and Kira said, ‘Yes, I’ll be your girlfriend.’”
She continued, “So what I think we’re going to see is Ally really does want to focus on her career. She just got over her stage fright. She’s an independent, strong woman. So if Austin has this other girl in his life, then she’s not going to wait around. But Austin does want to be with Ally, so there’s some miscommunication going on there. We’ll see what happens!”
Ross added, “Austin likes her [Kira], but he likes Ally as well. I think he likes Ally more than he likes Kira. I think he probably doesn’t want to date Ally for the awkwardness, so Kira is his back-up plan almost.”

Laura Marano and Ross Lynch hit up the red carpet at the 2013 Disney Channel Kids Upfront held at Hudson Theatre on Tuesday afternoon (March 12) in New York City.
The two Austin & Ally stars caught up with JJJ inside the event to chat about what’s going to happen for their characters on the hit show.
“Me personally, I think they’re meant to be together,” Ross shared with us. “I think it’s cool. Sometimes the story doesn’t go that way, but it’s cool.”
Laura added, “I think from the first episodes, they’re opposites, obviously. But they make such great music together and they’re a great partnership. The thing is, I don’t know. Hopefully they’ll always continue to be partners.”
Stay tuned for clips from this weekend’s episode! And check out photos of Ross and Laura that we took on the red carpet!
The 17-year-old actress opened up about nabbing the role of Ally on Austin & Ally, her favorite foods and crazy fan moments. Check it:
On her crazy fans: “Honestly, I enjoy every fan experience. It still bewilders me that I have fans. They are always the sweetest people and I am so lucky that they watch the show.”
On her fave eats: “I am so incredibly picky! It’s actually pretty ridiculous. My favorite foods consists of GoGurt, pizza and good old pasta. Honestly, I eat at home most of the time because my gather is such an amazing cook. He makes the best pasta ever.”
On finding out she was Ally: “I had tested for the show a few days prior, and I was literally flipping out. The not knowing was honestly killing me. I knew I was going to find out pretty soon, so I was just waiting for that phone call. All of the sudden, I check my phone and find out that my really good family friend texted me [which said] ‘Congrats. This is such a big deal.’ … At that point, I called my mom and told her what was happening. She told me I got the part, and I finally let myself completely freak out.”
In this weekend’s episode “Chapters & Choices,” When Ally’s (Marano) mom (Julia Campbell) comes home to host a book release party, Ally works up the courage to finally conquer her stage fright and performs a duet with Austin (Lynch) at the event.
