Cierra Ramirez and Raini Rodriguez have a new movie out TODAY — Girl in Progress!
The flick follows Ansiedad (Ramirez) who plots a shortcut to adulthood after finding inspiration in the coming-of-age stories she’s reading for school. JJJ caught up with Raini and Cierra to chat about the flick.
Cierra told us, “The whole auditioning process and finding out that I would play Eva Mendes‘ daughter made me feel so honored being that this is my first film.
“Going into it I was really intimidated and I felt all this pressure being a lead. I thought I knew what I was going but when I got to the set I didn’t realize what I was in for. Everyone just made me feel right at home and it just really helped with my nerves,” she added.
Raini also dished on her own character, Tavita: “It’s awesome to be coming from a Disney comedy to this dramatic film. I love acting! I love that everything is portrayed in this movie, growing up and family. What’s important is that Ansiedad tries to grow up really fast and it doesn’t work, so my character Tavita who is perfectly fine the way she is, is the one who goes through this right of passage going into adulthood and does it so innocently. I had to hit a lot of emotions in this role.”
