TWIST: Could you tell us about Austin & Ally? Calum: Absolutely. Austin and Ally is a great new comedy about following your dreams and the friends you meet along the way. Austin is an aspiring singer and Ally is an aspiring songwriter. When Austin becomes famous from using one of Ally's songs, the two decide to become partners.
T: Why should TWIST readers definitely watch the show? C: I think that they have to watch the show because all the characters are really relatable and I think in every friend group you'll find a "Dez," a "Trish," an "Austin," and an "Ally."
T: Can you tell us about your character, Dez? C: Yeah, Dez is a crazy out of this world kid. He's an aspiring filmmaker. He and Austin have been best friends all their lives. When Austin becomes famous he lets everything go to help his friend out on his new journey.
T: So you find him very relatable? C: I think he is very relatable. I feel as though I have this inner Dez inside of me. He's that crazy personality that we all wish we could let out all the time.
T: Okay, that's really cool. Could you explain to me the idea of your perfect date? C: My idea of a perfect date is one that's very relaxed and the two of us can have a lot of fun. I love a lot of laughter. I think the more you can laugh on a first date the better. Wherever it is, it has to be a place where you can really get to know the other person. Where you can find out their quirks and the stuff they don't want to let out normally.
T: Could you explain your ideal girl? C: The ideal girl is someone who makes me laugh. I love laughter. I feel laughter is the best medicine. It makes life so much easier if you're surrounded by people who make you happy and laugh all the time. The girl who can make me laugh is a huge plus. And just someone who's fun and loves life because I really have a passion for life. I love every single day and I love every single moment. I just feel so blessed to be here living life. I like to see girls who have that common interest with me--who can really love every moment and see the positive side of life.
T: Thanks for talking with us Calum! C: Thanks TWIST!
