The cast of Paper Towns has already proven just how tight knit they all became when they filmed the movie based on John Green's bestselling novel, and they've just done it again. We recently went out on a road trip to the actual paper town the characters from the movie visited in the search for their friend Margot in search of our own soul-searching journey, and were joined by Jaz Sinclair and Justice Smith — who play Angela and Radar in the movie. They shared with TWIST exactly why they loved playing these characters.
"I just remember reading the script and loving it and all the characters because they felt so real and then working on Angela, I thought it was so funny how honest she is with Radar and how she's just like 'Hey, this is what I feel like,'" Jaz shares. "I love how she just said it like it is, and it was a really interesting dynamic for them. The way they communicated with each other was funny, beautiful and authentic. Relationships are filled with awkward conversations like that so it was very honest."
Jaz really gravitated toward Angela's honesty, which allowed for her to have some pretty memorable lines in the film. Seriously, everything she said was funny yet totally true!
Justice on the other hand really admired how Radar learned from his mistakes, something everyone experiences.
"I think [Radar's] just a real person and especially at that age, we try to do right by everyone, and that's what he does for part of the movie. His friends, his girlfriend, he's just trying to balance the different aspects of his life," Justice tells us. "And at first unhealthily though, because he's compartmentalizing, trying to keep everything separate until that doesn't work. Eventually, they all blend together and he realizes that actually works better when his girlfriend knows his friends. So that's what I admire about him," he ads.
And now we long for a friends just like these two in our lives, really.
