Maia MitchellInterview with Maia Mitchell from Teen Beach Movie

Maia Mitchell is one of the coolest girls on TV. The 20-year-old Australian actress and singer won over American audiences when she starred in last summer’s runaway hit, Teen Beach Movie. We caught up with Maia to talk about her new show, her real-life family, and the possibility of another Teen Beach Movie (!!!).

Q: Are you doing another Teen Beach Movie?

A: It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but if there is one, I’ll be in it. I literally haven’t heard anything or seen a script. I don’t even know if screenwriters have finished writing a script. I know that there are a bunch of different ideas at the moment, but you might even know more than I know! [UPDATE! Production on Teen Beach Movie 2 begins in July, reuniting the cast of Ross Lynch, Maia Mitchell, Grace Phipps, Garrett Clayton and John DeLuca. It will air in 2015.]

Q: Were you surprised by the success of Teen Beach Movie?

A: Yes, I definitely was. I’m very proud of it. You just never know what is going to be a hit and what’s not. It was promoted in the right way and it got to the right audience!

Q: What does your little brother think of your success?

A: He’s not fazed in the slightest! He wants to be a professional cricket player. He plays cricket for a team in New South Wales back in Australia. He sleeps with a cricket bat…he has cricket books under his pillow. All he cares about in the whole world is cricket.

Q: Was Jessie the first thing you did for Disney?

A: I did a pilot for Disney called Zombies and Cheerleaders, which didn’t get picked up, and that was originally what I had auditioned for before Teen Beach Movie. I shot that pilot and Teen Beach Movie at the same time two years ago, and then I shot Jessie a year later.

Q: How was it working with Debby Ryan?

A: It was fun. Debby is a really good friend of mine. It was very comfortable even though I had never done that kind of acting before. The kids are really cool…. the set is really cool. It’s definitely a family dynamic.
