Dirty Dancing's Shane Harper Knows The Pressure of Taking On The Musical Remake

Dirty Dancing's Shane Harper Knows The Pressure of Taking On The Musical Remake

Shane Harper is prepared for all the nay-sayers who are coming after the Dirty Dancing remake — in fact, most of the cast is.

The actor, who plays Robbie in the TV special tonight, opened up about taking on a remake of a classic movie like this.

“Oh yeah, we’re terrified. Everyone understands that the comparisons are going to come. Our version of it is a musical. It’s a reimagined universe that this Dirty Dancing story is happening in,” he shared.

But, he still knows that everyone watching will actually enjoy it.

“The script is incredible. It’s Lionsgate and our producer and director and musical composer, they’re all so good,” Shane adds. “It’s going to be amazing, it’s going to be incredible.”

“We know it’s going to be compared too, and I don’t want anyone to be too harshly criticized. No one’s going to be Patrick Swayze. He was a legend.”

Flashback Friday! 5 Stars You Never Realized Were on 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Until Right Now

Confession time — JJJ is seriously still in love with the brilliance of Wizards of Waverly Place.

We love everything about it — from Alex’s snarkiness, Justin’s smartness, Max’s weirdness, Harper’s crazy outfits to the magic, the monsters and everything. We just love it.

But up until last night, we didn’t realize how many guest stars, who starred alongside Selena Gomez, David Henrie, Jake T. Austin and Jennifer Stone, took a big leap in their careers and are killing it.

Everyone pretty much knows the big guest stars — Shakira, Dwayne Johnson, Jeff Garlin, Gregg Sulkin, Bridgit Mendler — but we totally forgot about these five guest stars that are pretty big in Hollywood right now.

Shane Harper Reveals 'Like I Did' Is About Ex Bridgit Mendler

Shane Harper Reveals 'Like I Did' Is About Ex Bridgit Mendler

Shane Harper gets close with Sarah Hyland in his new music video for “Like I Did”.

The 23-year-old singer and actor recruited his Dirty Dancing co-star for the visual which aludes to a past relationship.

Speaking with Seventeen, Shane admitted that the song is about his former girlfriend, Bridgit Mendler.

“Yeah, I mean I don’t want to get too much into the details of it, but the song for me definitely has that connection to my life personally,” Shane shared. “I think it’s important for people to know that when I do write music, it’s not made up stories.”

He added, “It’s about the heartbreak of knowing that the person that you once loved is not with you anymore — they’re with someone else. And just battling those emotions which I think are super relatable. There are a lot of personal references, obviously, and it’s very close to my own experience. I hope people can connect to it in an emotional way.”
