In anticipation for Disney’s sequel, ‘Teen Beach 2,’ HollywoodLife.com caught up with Mollee Gray, who plays Giggles in the movie, and she reveled that that ‘stud’ Ross Lynch has always been like that — she’s know him for years!
“I’ve actually known Ross [Lynch] since he was a little nugget,” Mollee Gray told HollywoodLife.com on our podcast this week. With Teen Beach 2 hitting the Disney Channel this Friday, June 26, we had to know what it’s been like working with him, and of course, if there was any crushing going on. Hear the interview below!
“He grew up a dancer, so he went to dance conventions,” Mollee told us. “How you guys know him now, as like a stud and ladies man, he was like that then at like six [or] seven-years-old. He’s a stud, he’s a stud. Especially for the Disney fans, they love him. If you imagine a little six-year-old blonde boy — he had the blonde hair already — with his whole family, they all came into conventions and Ross would walk up to the older girls and he’d be like ‘Hey, what’s up?’ And you’re just like, ‘Ross!’ And he was so little. Finally, he had a growth spurt but he was just a little nugget.”
A little nugget huh? Well we see Ross as a little more mature these days because he’s talking about kissing his costar, Maia Mitchell and winning the hearts of basically everyone. But for Mollee, he’s still like family to her — nothing more. “My little brother is his age, 18,” she said. “Like he’s like my little brother, you know? I always like tease him and everything, you know?” You can download the entire podcast episode here.
She also raved about how humble he is, and isn’t cocky — even though people think he is. Basically, she’s ready to join R5. “I’ve known his whole family for forever. You know, I’m blonde, I should change my name to Rollee and I’ll be perfect.” Well, we’re in! Make sure you tune in to Teen Beach 2 this Friday, June 26 at 8PM ET on Disney!
