Tune in for #ABCFamily’s Holidaze #25DaysofChristmas Movie Starring Cameron Mathison and Find out What He Wants for Christmas #Interview

reblogged from RCR article found here

In case you’ve missed it, hunky, sometimes shirtless, Cameron Mathison, aka Ryan Lavery from All My Children to millions of fans, is starring in the new ABC Family movie “Holidaze” with Jennie Garth tonight. We talked to Cameron about his role, love, Jennie and what he wants for Christmas… so be sure to tell Santa when you see him in the mall that you know what he wants, and he’s been “nice.”

About Holidaze

Jennie Garth (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “Dancing with the Stars”) and Cameron Mathison (“Dancing with the Stars,” “All My Children,” “Good Morning America”) prove you can go home again, in the all new ABC Family original movie “Holidaze,” premiering Sunday, December 8 (8:00 – 10:00pm ET/PT). The movie airs as part of ABC Family’s annual “25 Days of Christmas” programming event. Mary Kay Place (“The Big Chill,” “The West Wing,” “Big Love”) also stars.

Tune in tonight on ABC Family at 8 PM – or DVR it… Don’t Miss “Holidaze”

Our Interview with Cameron

The morning we interviewed Cameron, he was on “elf” duty for ABC’s Good Morning America, delivering a new car to a deserving winner of their “Great Car Giveaway” and like many of us out there – we cried seeing the joy that was on the mom-to-be’s face and how truly authentic and happy Cameron was to be the one to give it to her. Which is the best thing we got from our interview, Cameron is a super awesome family man and a versatile actor.

This movie sounds like it could be a new twist to “Groundhog Day” for Christmas where a twist of fate could change how the love of your life remains in your world or not.

Cameron tells us he enjoyed exploring being a character that has a childhood sweetheart and the nuances that it brings including butting heads. He told us he had a high school teacher who would do exercises where you would put yourself in an alternate universe and think about the “what if’s” but it isn’t one of the things that he spends time thinking about, he’s very happy in the life he has “for real.”

Why this movie?

Cameron’s a big Jennie Garth fan and was excited to be working with her on this movie. He liked his character
“Carter” as he is a “good guy” with values and knows what he wants in life. His character likes living in a small town and so does Cameron, although he lives in LA, it’s more LA County being he’s lives in a smaller community in the mountains that surround LA.

Cameron also tells us that  he likes how the underlying theme of this movie is about how society and life in general pull you into a fast pace, pushing you to get a better job and climb the corporate ladder and how his character is the polar opposite, one that values community, is grounded and connected to those around him.

Personally speaking, Cameron likes the contrast. He prefers to focus on balance in his life and getting to more meaningful aspects of life – getting off the freeway and slowing down.

Favorite Holiday

Cameron’s favorite holiday is Christmas, he tells us that his family loves to decorate their home and it is part of the traditions they have created from Thanksgiving dinners to ice skating to reading the kids their favorite stories. He tells us they are The Happy Prince, The Gift of the Magi and The Night Before Christmas.

…with that said, he tells us his favorite part of Christmas is their tradition of spending time together as a family and opening presents (from youngest to oldest) and seeing his children’s excitement to see what Santa has brought them.

What Can Santa Bring Cameron for Christmas?

That’s easy – it rolled off his tongue like he wrote a “dear Santa” letter and sent it off the week before… a wireless power drill. Tweet to Cameron about this interview and how much you hope he gets what he wants for Christmas. Here’s his twitter link: https://twitter.com/CameronMathison

Cameron – we hope you get what you want for Christmas!

We got to speak with Kylie Bunbury from the new ABC Family Hit Show, Twisted, about her role and the upcoming season finale tomorrow night.

We asked how she got the role? She said she got the script outside of pilot season and was really intrigues by the dynamics between the three main characters.

Kylie tells us she went in to read for Lacy and Adam (Adam Milch, Executive Producer) liked me. She got a call back and then did a chemistry read with Maddie (Maddie Hasson, her co-star).

Kylie says everything happened very fast, like a whirlwind.

We asked Kylie what she liked about the character she plays and she told us she likes how she has a “hard exterior”  but is nice when it counts and is vulnerable. There are reasons she is the way she is and Kylie says she likes how the character development is not all out in the open, which keeps the audience guessing about what she will do next.

Kylie also tells us that she is like her character and she makes some mistakes but is true to herself and a bit reserved in letting people into her life, but she shares that confidence and softness with her TV character as well.

Since the show is about high school and popular kids play a big role in the interaction of the three main characters and the mystery surrounding Avan Jogia’s troubled past, we asked about the importance of being in the “in crowd.” Kylie tells us that she realized when she got into the real world things aren’t as they seem, her character became popular because she didn’t want the issue that happened in the past when she was eleven to define her.

She does tell us that what she found to be true in real life is to be yourself, be true to yourself and know you worth, that’s what’s important. Kylie says to never compromise and keep your integrity, if you just want to fit in and you compromise to do so, you won’t feel good after.

Sorry – no spoiler here! You’ll have to watch the final season summer final episode entitled  “Out With the In-Crowd,” airing Tuesday, August 27th at 9:00pm ET/PT on ABC Family.

Kylie and her cast mates go back to work in October on new episodes so don’t miss out on the season finale tomorrow night! Be sure to follow Kylie on Twitter! https://twitter.com/kyliebunbury

Imagine summer fun, TV and learning all rolled into one TV show! Spell-mageddon! #ABCFamily

Spell-Mageddon World Premiere July 24 – Watch Each Wednesday at 9/8c on ABC Family

We love this new ABC Family show hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro, imagine the fun and what you could learn in one hour? Yes, the one hour game show makes the spelling bee something to strive for and not be afraid of… but watch out, the contestants on Spell-Mageddon are not only distracted but stuff happens to them while the spelling challenges get increasingly tougher!

Watch this Clip

We got to speak with Alfonso before the premiere and he is just as funny and entertaining as we remember him from his Fresh Prince of Bel Air days.

We had to ask: Were you a good speller in school?

He tells us that spelling was not his “best area” but  math was #1! That’s why he can feel for the contestants when they get a spelling wrong…

Does Alfonso rely on his autocorrect on his mobile?

Oh no, he’s very careful and reads as he goes, he doesn’t do 100MPH, he proofreads… (smart!)

So if spelling isn’t really his passion, why this project?

Alfonso tells us that it’s a fun ride and he always wanted to be involved with something fun, like this, take the spelling bee and add crazy distractions! It’s pure comedy and the contestants are so great and so focused. The Zapp electric shockers and sounds that are made by them when they react are too funny. The best part is they want to be there and we get to see their real reactions and have fun.

Alfonso tells us that people are very excited about a show that is positive and they really enjoy it. It’s truly LOL – laugh out loud fun. It’s naturally, not staged funny and very positive in nature.

How do you describe the show to people who don’t get it?

He says – think of the ABC Wipeout Show and it’s like that but you are learning words.

 

Imagine summer fun, TV and learning all rolled into one TV show!

About Spell-Mageddon

Spell-Mageddon is an hour game show where contestants take on hilarious distractions while spelling increasingly challenging words!

Maia Mitchell Gives The Fosters on ABC Family Heart, Tune In Tonight to See Why

reblogged from The Red Carpet Report Post found here

If you haven’t discovered “The Fosters” on ABC Family, tune in tonight to see what you’ve been missing. We got to speak with one of the “foster” kids about her role and what it’s been like to be on this series a few days ago.

Maia Mitchell, the talented actress from down under, who plays Callie on the series is a hardened character in survival mode and learning to slowly begin to trust those around her. She’s very protective of her younger brother and will do what it takes to be there for him, even if it means breaking the rules and putting her relationship with her foster parents at risk.

We asked Maia how she found this role and she told us that she read the script for the pilot 3 or 4 times and auditioned twice, she really wanted to be cast as Callie because she as she tells us, she was “obsessed” with the character and knew the show was going to be a hit.

Here’s Maia talking to us on the blue carpet a few weeks back at the Monsters University premiere about her role on The Fosters.

How does an actor so young portray such a powerful performance?

Maia tells us that “Callie’s journey is to learn how to trust people” and the upcoming episode entitled “The Fallout” is a dramatic one, where she needs to understand that she has to face her past. She’s being encouraged to go to therapy, but as Maia tells us “a therapy session is not going to do it for Callie, she butts heads with the concept and she can’t face the demon’s in her past…” at least not yet.

Maia tells us that “the dialog is so strong and the character arcs are so clear in the writing that the more (I) am in character, the easier it is to be that character.”

She also tells us that she “learned more about (my)self in the pilot, it was so raw and I allowed myself to get lost in the character, dig deep beyond my comfort zone, and be challenged on a deeper level” than she had been at this point in her career.

Here’s a clip from a past episode about “Callie and her little brother Jude”

Finally, we asked who her favorite cast mate was on the show?

She tells us that’s a really tough question, but she finally shared it was Hayden Byerly, who plays her little brother Jude,”because we have a character history and I have a little brother (in real life) so I enjoy his company he reminds me of Charlie, my brother, Hayden’s very precocious and very clever.”

Be sure to tune in to “The Fosters” on Monday Nights at 9 PM ET. You can also find out more about this series, watch past episodes and even follow Maia on Twitter at  https://twitter.com/MaiaMitchell
