TWIST just chatted with actress Meaghan Martin! Meaghan was so nice and told us about her involvement with the ACUVUE 1-Day Contest. She also revealed whether or not she plans to record an album and spilled some exclusive deets about a few of her upcoming movies! Check out the conversation below!
TWIST: Can you tell us about the ACUVUE 1-Day Contest?
Meaghan Martin: I was a part of the 1-Day Contest last year and it was a lot of fun! I got to spend the day with my winner and I also got to play the host role, so I got to see everybody's story and meet all of the winners and watch their dreams come true. When ACUVUE asked me to come back again this year, I was really excited and I had so much fun again!
TWIST: What made you originally want to get involved with ACUVUE?
MM: Well, first of all, I wear ACUVUE contact lenses, so that was a great match! And then also, I thought it was such a cool idea to take these kids and help them get one step closer to their dream because that's so important. I think it's great to encourage people to do what they love to do and what they dream of doing.
TWIST: What was the best part of working with a mentee?
MM: My mentee was great. He was such a nice guy and was really passionate about performing and being a great music artist. I think my favorite part was watching his reactions throughout the day. I loved watching the surprises and how they affected him. His smile kept getting bigger and bigger.
TWIST: You've recorded several songs in the past. Do you have any plans to record an album?
MM: No, no album for me. I love singing, but it mostly just goes hand in hand with acting for me.
TWIST: Are you currently working on any movies?
MM: I just finished filming a movie called Geography Club, and I had so much fun making it. It'll probably be out next year, but I'm not sure exactly when. I think a lot of people are really going to enjoy it. It's a fun movie.
TWIST: Do you have any other upcoming projects TWIST readers should know about?
MM: Yeah, I have a movie called Sironia coming out in October in theaters. It's about a songwriter and his journey of deciding whether he wants to live in Los Angeles or Texas. I play a small role, but it's really fun. I'm kind of like a Taylor Swift-type country popstar. It was a lot of fun to do.
TWIST: Did you sing at all in the movie?
MM: Yeah, I have two songs in the movie, so it was great!
TWIST: We can't wait to see it! Thanks so much for chatting with us, Meaghan!
MM: Thanks, TWIST!
