Ryan Cargill Talks 'WITS Academy' With JJJ!

Check out this brand new interview with the super talented Ryan Cargill!

The WITS Academy star chatted with us about the show, how he got his start in acting, and more!

JustJaredJr.com: Tell us about how you got into acting!

Ryan Cargill: I actually started in a community theatre, in Texas, after my mom made me go. Three days in, I was hooked, and was dragging her to all the auditions.

JJJ: What was your audition for WITS Academy like?

RC: Surreal! I went in thinking “all I can do is bring everything I have to it.” I wound up watching David Schwimmer on Friends, to get a comedic rhythm and to calm me down. I didn’t think I had the part, and was actually looking for a waitering job, the night before I got the role.

Kennedy Slocum Gives JJJ the Scoop on Nickelodeon's 'WITS Academy'!

Kennedy Slocum Gives JJJ the Scoop on Nickelodeon's 'WITS Academy'!

Check out this brand new interview with the super talented Kennedy Slocum!

The young actress stars on Nickelodeon’s new show WITS Academy, which is a school for young witches and wizards in training, where Guardians are assigned to help develop student’s magical powers and get them ready for graduation.

Kennedy stars as Ruby, a 16-year old who beneath her candy-coated facade is a ruthless manipulator. She will go to any length to get what she wants, and what she wants is magic powers- she’s the only powerless witch in her entire family.

WITS Academy airs every weeknight @ 7PM on Nick!

JustJaredJr.com: Congrats on the show! How was the premiere week for you?!

Kennedy Slocum: It’s a little surreal to see it all. Especially with the format of the show being daily instead of weekly, I’m seeing three months of work go by in only one month. It’s exciting to see it all put together with the magic, but it’s also terrifying to know that the season finale is only three weeks away.

JJJ: You filmed in Miami right? What was that like?

KS: I loved filming in Miami! Although the heat wasn’t necessarily ideal, the location we had for shooting the outdoor scenes was beautiful. I also loved the people there and being introduced to new cultures. Cuban coffee is my new obsession.
