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
