If you've re-watched Teen Beach Movie and Teen Beach 2 about a zillion times over (each!) like we have, we bet that it's really hard to imagine the cast of characters looking any different than they do in the Disney Channel Original Movies. But actress Chrissie Fit shared a throwback pic from filming the first movie, and she revealed that her character Chee Chee was originally supposed to look very different than the way she turned out.
"#tbt to my second fitting for #TeenBeachMovie with the incredible Ruth Carter," Chrissie wrote on Instagram along with her behind-the-scnees wardrobe snap. "She had an idea set for #CheeChee based on the script; but it changed after the first fitting."
"She asked me to give her an idea of how I was going to play the character so I did the voice and gave her some of the attitude," she added. "She tossed everything aside and started cutting out new fabric. It was amazing to see! #100DCOMs @disneychannel."
It's so cool to hear that the character's now-iconic costume was made to perfectly match the way Chrissie played her. After all, we couldn't imagine Chee Chee without her big hair and obsession with leather!
