Maddie Ziegler Dishes On Her Role in 'West Side Story'

Maddie Ziegler just recently opened up about her new role in the remake of West Side Story.

The Steven Spielberg film stars Rachel Zegler and Ansel Elgort in the roles of Maria and Tony in the modern-day re-telling of Romeo & Juliet.

“I’m one of the Jet girls,” Maddie explained to Entertainment Tonight, adding that “it was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. To work with Steven Spielberg was a pretty life-changing thing, so I’m really grateful for that.”

As for the movie itself, Maddie assures big fans of the film that nothing big has changed.

“We stayed really true to the value of the first movie . . . so the costumes, the hair, and the makeup [are] all very from that era, which is amazing. I think we just added more flair from this new cast,” she adds. “I learned so much from all the dancers and the actors. Everyone is brilliant.”

We can’t wait to see the movie! West Side Story is expected to premiere in December of 2020.
