Hey M Girls,
Remember Disney's PROM? Well, then you probably know Robbie Tucker who played Charlie Richter!
You can also catch Robbie and Joey King in the upcoming movie Family Weekend where a family is held hostage by the oldest sister after they miss her big jump-roping competition!
Robbie took time out of his busy schedule to give M some exclusive scoop about his past and present projects! Check out what he had to say below:
M: What was your favorite experience during the filming of Disney's PROM and are you still friends with any of your cast mates?
Robbie: My favorite experience was working with Thomas McDonell. He played my big brother...he would pick me up and twirl me around a lot! I made friends with Raini Rodriquez's brother Rico. I met him on set because he came a couple of times to see his sister. We hung out at the PROM wrap party. I see him at events once in a while.
M: Can you tell us a little bit about your role in Family Weekend and what it was like working on the film?
Robbie: I played Mickey, the youngest of the four Smith-Dungy kids...Mickey would repeat things and remember things that no one else could. Working with the whole cast and crew was great! Olesya Rulin & Chloe Bridges were so funny in their roles and fun to be around. Kristen Chenoweth was always singing on set!
M: In Family Weekend, you have an older sister Emily, but you have a big sister in real life too, Jillian Rose Reed who works on MTV's Awkward as Tamara. Can you tell us a little bit about your relationship with Jillian?
Robbie: Jillian and I are very close and have a great relationship...She is my #1 fan and coaches me for a lot of my auditions!
M:That's so sweet! It looks like you guys get into some pretty crazy stuff in Family Weekend! What was the craziest scene to film?
Robbie: The puppet scene was really crazy because we had to work these huge hand puppets and give them personalities along with playing our own roles.
M: What would be your advice for kids who want to start acting?
Robbie: To really study hard by taking acting classes and learning from different coaches. Stay confident in yourself because in this career it's easy to take things personally....don't give up your dream!
M: That's great advice! If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Robbie: To fly! I just think it would be really fun and I could avoid all the traffic!
