Laura Marano has a ton of exciting things in her future, but a free schedule is not one of them. So obviously we just had to get the deets on the super cool projects she's working on. M caught up with the Austin & Ally star at the Nintendo 3DS Girls Love Gaming event, where we hung out and played video games (Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, to name a few) with the star. She even spilled that she and Ross Lynch were big gamers on the set of Austin & Ally.
"I get really competitive. Ross and I would face each other," she spills.
Laura also exclusively tells us all about the big movie she's about to film now that Austin & Ally is all wrapped up.
"I got this movie called The War With Grandpa. It’s starring Robert De Niro. I’m playing Robert De Niro’s granddaughter. Marisa Tomei’s daughter," she tells us. "The cast is insane, so I’m so excited to be a part of it. It’s going to start filming in Toronto. I’ve never been to Toronto. The script is so awesome – so funny."
Laura also has a reason to be excited for her big sister Vanessa, with her latest television project. Vanessa, who starred as April in Gilmore Girls, is coming back to star in the highly anticipated revival, Girlmore Girls: A Year in the Life . Even though Laura is a huge fan, Vanessa hasn't given her sister any spoilers.
"We’re best friends. She has not told me anything," Laura spills. "It was our favorite show, and so when she got it back in the day, we like freaked out. It was awesome."
The mini-series hits Netflix after 10 years after the original show has been off the air, and the sisters are planning on watching it together when it comes out over Thanksgiving-holiday weekend.
"I think the goal is going to be to binge it," she tells us.
We cannot be more excited for these two! Now brb – trying to score an invite to the Marano sisters' Gilmore Girls viewing party!
