Level Up's Aimee Carrero just stopped by the TWIST office! We got the inside scoop on this season of Level Up, Aimee's character Angie and what's up next for her! Check out the exclusive convo and video below and be sure to check out Level Up on Cartoon Network, Tuesdays at 7:30 pm!
TWIST: Can you tell us a little more about your show, Level Up, on Cartoon Network? AC: It's about a video game that comes to life. It's three guys and myself and we have to save the town from disaster and destruction every week because we have these evil villains that come out of the game!
TWIST: What do you think TWIST readers would love about this season of Level Up? AC: Well this season, Angie really cements herself as part of the team. There's no mention of [girls being weak] and there shouldn't be. So it's a great contrast to a lot of the things that girls are faced with right now in the media and on TV. Angie's a vital part of the team, she's just as important as anybody else.
TWIST: Can you tell us more about Angie? AC: She's a planner. She wants to go away for college and she sees this opportunity to develop skills that she never thought she'd develop: self-defense skills and the in-game mind skills. Eventually she stays because she forms a friendship with the guys. Angie's a good model for girls because she is interested in dating and has crushes, but at the same time she isn't afraid to have other interests as well.
TWIST: What is the dynamic between Angie and the guys? AC: Just like any group of friends when you're in high school, you ask yourself questions: 'Could this be more? Could it not be more?' She flip-flops between [thinking], 'They're like my brothers,' but then some moments, like in the movie, she looks at Wyatt and sees something maybe a little bit more.
TWIST: Do you have any funny or embarrassing stories from the set to share? AC: The guys are always trying to pull pranks on me! They thought it would be funny to put tons of earthworms in my pockets. It took me an hour to finally put my hands in my pockets and then when I lifted them, [the worms] were just dangling off. They recorded it too.
TWIST: What's coming up next for you? AC: I'm in New York doing an off-Broadway play. It's called What Rhymes with America. It's such a great experience for actors, where you go and you learn, fail and fall on your face and just become better.
