Want to know more about the show? We also chatted with Ricky to get the behind-the-scenes scoop on his episode. Check out our exclusive Q & A below.
TWIST: What do you hope fans are going to love most about Crashed?
Ricky Dillon: I hope fans love how different this is for me. I’ve never made or been in anything even remotely close to this before so it’ll be exciting for them to see me doing something so new!
TWIST: Can you tell us a behind-the-scenes story from filming?
RD: Actually yes. I had a horrible eye infection the week leading up to this and it still wasn’t even healed when i filmed this. The makeup artist did the best she could to cover it up but it still looked pretty rough so my eye might look a little weird in it haha. I had a blast filming of course but little did everyone know I had this crazy eye infection.
TWIST: How were you approached with the idea to work on the project, and what was your reaction like?
RD: My team approached me with the idea and I instantly thought it sounded amazing. Like I said before, I’ve never done anything like this before so I was excited to try something extremely new and different. I said yes right away!
TWIST: If you could have someone crash YOUR day, who would it be, and what would you hope to get up to?
RD:Ah that’s a hard one because I’m such a big fan myself of so many people. I have a big goal of getting serious acting roles one day. I’m a huge fan of TV series, I watch so many. So I think I would love to get crashed by one of the stars of one of the shows I watch and get to go on set of them filming and get tips from them personally! There’s so many names I could say but I think it would be really cool to be crashed by Grant Gustin who plays Barry Allen on The Flash. I love that show so much and I love him and I’m always blown away by how incredible of an actor he is.
TWIST: What is something you've taken away from your experience on the show?
RD: I think something cool that I took away was actually getting some inspiration from the fans themselves that I surprised! They’re so passionate and love what they do and work so hard and root each other on so much and I loved seeing that, it was so refreshing and seriously gave me some inspiration.
