Our Interview with Sara Paxton About Dancing, Romance and Her New Musical “Lovestruck: The Musical” Premiering on ABC Family

Reblogged from the Red Carpet Report

Mingle Media TV’s Red Carpet Report got to interview Sara Paxton (“Aquamarine”) about her role as Mirabella, the daughter of Harper (portrayed by Jane Seymour AND Chelsea Kane) in the new original movie musical “Lovestruck: The Musical” premiering Sunday April 21, 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT on ABC Family.

Our Interview with Sara

We asked Sara why she wanted to do this movie? She told us that she enjoyed doing musical theatre growing up but never a musical so this would be her first opportunity and she really wanted to do it.

She told us that she felt her character (daughter of Jane Seymour’s character and star of the dance company her mother runs) was relatable to girls and their relationships with their mothers. In the movie Sara’s mom doesn’t want her to give up her dream by quitting and getting married but it turns out it’s really her Mom’s dream not hers. She told us that every girl will deals with some aspect of this as it’s hard for a Mom to realize her daughter is growing up and making her own decisions.

The movie was shot in Pittsburgh and Sara said she loves to travel as part of her job and explore new cities and she loved Pittsburgh.

We asked her how it was to work with Jane Seymour? She told us that Jane was so grew, amazing and impressive as an actress and dancer. She was also very maternal (being the mother of six) and she kept reminding us to stretch beforehand.

Talking about the dancing, she said that Michael Rooney (“(500) Days of Summer,” “The Muppets” and choreographer of music videos for Fatboy Slim and Gnarls Barkley’s “Run,” for which he won his 5th MTV Award for Best Choreography) expected the best from the cast, the routines were really hard but she said that she considers her talent to be actress, singer then dancer.

Sara told us she was like this character in that she would follow her heart but she hasn’t found the right person yet.

Finally, we asked what was her favorite number in the musical? That was easy, it was Everlasting Love with 25 cast members dancing and they did it all in one take.

Oh, we did ask if she was going to follow in Jane Seymour’s footsteps and be on a future Dancing with the Stars and she just laughed.

About “Lovestruck: The Musical”

“Lovestruck: The Musical” tells the story of Harper (Jane Seymour), one of the best dancers to hit Broadway. But an injury caused her to leave the spotlight, become a choreographer, and raise her daughter, Mirabella (Sara Paxton). When Mirabella, the star of Harper’s next big production, decides to quit the show to get married, her mother is determined to put a stop to the wedding and show Mirabella that she cannot give up her career for love, especially to marry playboy Marco (Alexander DiPersia). After the long flight to the Italian wedding site, Harper takes a swig from a strange bottle that is supposed to dull the pain of an old dance injury. Instead, the elixir magically turns Harper 30 years younger.
