-It’s a “wizards-full” year for Jennifer Stone. Season 3 of the hit show “Wizards of Waverly Place” just started filming and the TV movie based on the show opens in August and already looks like it will be a fan favorite.
SO-M had the chance to chat with Jennifer on the phone recently about working on the popular Disney show, the “Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana” special, her favorite things about Summer and more. Check it out. Check back later to see Jennifer’s answers to your questions.
How did you get started in acting? I got started because my older brother did theater. I was always the younger sibling that got dragged to all the rehearsals. So, I sort of, after watching so many rehearsals, realized that I kind of wanted a piece of it. So that’s how I got started, with the theater, and it kind of naturally progressed to where I am today.
Can you tell us anything about the “Wizards of Waverly Place” movie? It all depicts the Russo’s going on vacation and the trouble they get into. Of course they wouldn’t be the Russo’s if they didn’t get into trouble. [laughs] You have to tune in and see how they get in trouble specifically, but it’s pretty intense.
Do you have a favorite scene from the movie? There’s a scene Selena [Gomez] and I did on a subway car. I’m a big fan of action movies and it was my first stunt thing I got to do. We had to like slide and fall and it was very action involved. I was very excited about that. I felt like Angelina Jolie in that scene.
