Freaky Friday's Jason Maybaum Reveals His Favorite Magic Trick (Exclusive)

Jason Maybaum is taking on the role of a budding magician in his brand new movie, Freaky Friday, which premieres TONIGHT on Disney Channel.

Speaking with the 10-year-old actor, JJJ got him to reveal just how good he is at magic now and his favorite trick ever.

“I love magic. I’m better with the movie magic behind me, but I have been learning card tricks and illusions since Freaky Friday because magic is so cool,” Jason tells us.

However the craziest one he learned isn’t even in the movie!

“I learned a crazy trick where I could make things appear and disappear, but it was too freaky, so it isn’t in the movie,” Jason says. “But there is a cool trick in the movie where I pull endless streamers out of my mouth.”

Freaky Friday airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

Based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name, Freaky Friday tells the story of a mother and daughter who, strangely, spend a day in each other’s shoes.

Directed by Steve Carr, the music-driven contemporary body-swap comedy stars Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Heidi Blickenstaff, as well as Ricky He, Alex Desert, Jason Maybaum, Kahyun Kim, Dara Renee, Jennifer Laporte, Isaiah Lehtinen, and Sarah Willey.

Here’s the synopsis: Ellie (Cozi) is a 16-year-old attempting to assert her independence from her mom, Katherine (Heidi), a mother struggling to understand her stubborn teenage daughter. When Katherine won’t let Ellie participate in the school’s all-night scavenger hunt, a heated confrontation leaves both women wishing that the other would change their ways.

The mother and daughter magically swap bodies through the power of an hourglass which then accidentally shatters. Now, they must hunt down the matching hourglass in order to switch back before it’s too late!

Freaky Friday premieres on TONIGHT, August 10th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

Jason Maybaum Got To Pursue Some of His Directing Dreams While Filming 'Freaky Friday' (Exclusive)

Jason Maybaum stars as Fletcher in the upcoming Freaky Friday movie musical on Disney Channel this week, however, that wasn’t his only role.

In between filming, the 10-year-old actor was also learning what goes on behind the camera too. Jason started to pursue more of his interest in the camera and lighting aspects of filmmaking and bonded with the crew, who gave him advice and took him under their wing.

“I want to be the next Ron Howard or Steven Spielberg,” Jason revealed to JJJ in our exclusive interview.

“When I started acting I saw that the director is the boss, so I decided to learn as much as I could from everyone on set so someday I could be the boss,” he adds about his inspiration in wanting to learn more.”

Jason goes on to tell us what he learned, which was “to look, listen, watch and learn from everyone. Anyone who is older than me can teach me something. I have learned how to change the lighting intensity on shots to control shadows to make the actors look different or better, depending on what the director wants.”

He also gave a lot of thanks to the crew who did help you out.

“The camera and sound crew were awesome, they set me up with gear and taught me how to run the equipment so I know not only how to shoot a scene, but what it takes to make the actors look good.”

As far as transitioning from in front of the camera to behind it, it wasn’t that difficult.

“The crew was so awesome and willing to let me learn,” Jason says. “I was able to use my acting skills and link them with what the crew needed to make things work, so it made me a better actor.”

At the end of the shoot, the crew even gave him a video camera as a gift – and yes, he’s been using his video camera a lot!

“I film everything. Sometimes it is great, sometimes good, sometimes bad. But that it is why I do it. No matter how I turns out I learn something about framing the shot, the lighting, the blocking, or the feel for the scene. I love to film stuff.”

Freaky Friday premieres Friday, August 10th on Disney Channel.
