Hey TWIST girls,
TWIST just got to chat with the stars of "Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures" Dillon Lane, Taylor Gray, and Ashley Argota! The show is about two best friends, Bucket and Skinner, who are complete opposites of each other! Bucket (Taylor) and is super smart while his best friend Skinner (Dillon) is laid back and carefree. In the first episode, Bucket tries to win over the affection of his classmate Kelly (Ashley) and you have to see what he does! Be sure to tune in on Friday at 8:00pm. And don't forget to check out the behind the scenes vid below!
TWIST: So first, can you each tell us a little bit about your new show, Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures and the characters you play? Taylor: Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures is about two best friends and all the crazy things they did through high school. Bucket's a cool guy. He's very down-to-earth and he's the relatable guy who everyone has something in common with. Ashley: Bucket has a massive crush on my character, Kelly! It's the story of him trying to win her over. And he does everything from dress up like an 8-foot taco, to stage a robbery in our surf shop so he looks like the hero! It's a lot of fun! Dillon: Skinner is a kid that is basically Bucket's best friend in the entire world! He'll pretty much do anything it takes to make Bucket happy and to have a good time. He just wants to see himself succeed and his best friend succeed in everything that they want to do.
TWIST: Do you have anything in common with the characters you play? Taylor: Well Bucket's in love with Kelly, who's played by Ashley Argota, and I mean, I've always had that situation. Every guy has, where you see that cute girl and you're like, "I really want to talk to you but I don't know what to say," and Bucket does that all the time! Ashley: Yeah, she's the smart, popular, really confident girl in school. I was always the smart girl in school. The kids would always come up to my desk and try to touch my pencil before every test because they thought it was like, good luck. [Laughs] Dillon: I can definitely relate to Skinner... I think we look a lot alike! But seriously, he has a very positive outlook on life. The glass is always half full on his point of view and I can definitely relate to that!
TWIST: So what's the craziest thing you've ever done to win a crush over? Or the craziest thing someone has ever done to win you over? Taylor: Craziest thing I've done to win a girl over? Um...I've, like, exaggerated stories before. Like, "Yeah, I've killed a shark," and things like that, which I have definitely never done! Ashley: There's this kid who's had a crush on me since I was in elementary school and he literally comes to my house all the time! Thankfully, I'm not home half the time so I don't have to worry about it. I went to the park with him once because he said that one of our friends was at the park and I ended up like spending like 5 minutes there and then I was like, "I gotta go! This is really awkward! Bye!"
TWIST: How do you guys spend your downtime on set? Dillon: We recently got a basketball hoop set up outside! So now, countless hours are spent outside playing basketball and getting sweaty and making the hair and makeup department extremely mad!
TWIST: Thanks so much guys! Dillon, Ashley, Taylor: You rock TWIST! Hope you enjoy the show.
