Did you watch Teen Beach Movie last month (a.k.a. THE movie of the summer!)? Maia Mitchell played surfer girl, Mack, the girlfriend of Ross Lynch’s character, Brady. We interviewed her to find out her thoughts about school, saving the planet, and what Ross is really like.
Q: How was it working with Ross in Teen Beach Movie?
Maia: Awful!!! No, I’m totally kidding. He’s a dream to work with. He’s super-talented and cares a lot about this work and has a lot of energy and brings spark to the show.
Q: What do you do to save the planet?
Maia: My roommates and I came up with a plan to be more environmentally friendly because we have been a bit slacking. We always recycle and make sure we turn lights off, but there is so much more you can do.
Q: Are you going to come back onto Jessie?
Maia: Maybe. I’d love too. It was a lot of fun to film. Debby [Ryan] and I are good friends so it was real comfortable, and all those kids are great.
Q: When you were young, what was the hardest word for you to pronounce?
Maia: Cucumber. I used to say “cucombombom” I could never get it and I was like seven years old.
Q: What was your favorite school subject?
Maia: I was in the arts, so my favorite subject has been drama. I really love English, so I loved my English class. That was always fun!
Q: What is the most important issue do you feel for kids today?
Maia: That is a very interesting question. I think it is really cool for kids to know that they have a voice and that they can stand up for themselves.
So sweet, right? Leave a Comment and tell us how much you love her!
