The Young Hollywood Awards celebrate the emerging young talent in Film and Television throughout the entertainment industry. Regarded as the “Oscars of Young Hollywood”, the red carpet event is a launch pad for the future careers of actors, directors and entertainers.
A.N.T. Farm is back with new shows starting TONIGHT on Disney Channel!
JJJ recently hopped on the phone with actress Sierra McCormick to find out all about the new season, her audition and casting Olive’s parents. Check it:
JJJ: Is it true that you continually talked about tigers in your audition and it actually helped you get the part of Olive?
Sierra McCormick: Actually, I guess that is true. I am not even sure why I did that but it worked! I love watching Animal Planet and Discovery Channel. I guess I am a little bit like my character Olive in that we both like “interesting factoids.” Mine just happened to be tigers that day.
JJJ: Do you have a favorite episode from this upcoming season so far?
SM: There are a couple of upcoming episodes that were so much fun shooting but I would have to say the season 2 Halloween episode is my favorite so far. Of course I have been sworn to secrecy so I can’t give any details. So you will just have to tune in and see….a lot of Olive.
JJJ: If A.N.T. Farm could cross over with any Disney Channel program, which one would you want it to be?
SM:Lab Rats! I love the entire cast. The characters on Lab Rats have superhuman talents so they would fit right into the A.N.T. program.
JJJ: Who’d be your dream guest-star on your show and what would they play?
SM: Andy Samberg! I love him! He would be great as my dad. His wacky sense of humor would fit right in with Olive’s.
The season two premiere of A.N.T. Farm happens tonight @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
The whole A.N.T. Farm cast snaps a pic with the Heimlich Heroes at the Hollywood Center Studios on Friday afternoon (May 25).
Beanie, Aniyah and Anthony, first graders from Sacramento’s Caroline Wenzel Elementary School, were honored as “Heroes” during the event on the set of the popular Disney Channel show.
The trio made national news this month when in the school lunchroom, Beanie performed the Heimlich maneuver on her friend Aniyah who was choking on an apple slice. Beanie said she learned the Heimlich maneuver from an episode of the show!
“Had the honor of meeting 3 heroes + surprising them with a Disneyland trip! Such an inspiring story,” starlet Stefanie Scott tweeted.
