Avan Jogia Interview

By: Sindy

Sindy: Hi Avan, what are you working on right now?

Avan: I just finished Spectacular! It’s a Nickelodeon movie about a show choir. I play a brainiac foreign exchange student. He’s really passionate about show choir and he was such a fun character to play.


Sindy: Did you sing and dance in the movie?


Avan: Yeah, I did the dancing, but I lip-synched the songs because I don’t sing. The soundtrack is really cool, though, even though I’m not on it (laughs). It came out last week.


Sindy: Cool! Did you train long for the dance sequences?


Avan:: I had to do three weeks of rehearsals so yeah, lots of dancing.


Sindy: Do you have a dancing background?


Avan: Mm no, I mean, I could always dance, but I didn’t take choreography lessons or anything.


Sindy: Just a natural rhythm, right?


Avan: Right. (laughs)


Sindy: So tell me about the TV show, Caprica.


Avan: It’s a Battlestar Galactica spin-off series. I play a character who is pretty confused—he thinks he’s doing the right thing but he’s very much not. It’s a darker role; very intense—it’s going to be fun and it’s a bit of a switch to do this after Spectacular.


Sindy: Were you a fan of Battlestar Galactica?


Avan: You know I’d heard great things but I’d never watched it before. But when I got the role I started watching it obsessively and I became a huge fan. It challenges so many things and it’s a really awesome franchise.


Sindy: Do you feel a lot of pressure since there’s such a big fan base?


Avan: Well, I feel like Caprica is a different kind of show than Battlestar. There is a lot of pressure, but Caprica is a show that does something different, but just as well as Battlestar.


Sindy: What makes it different?


Avan: Instead of taking place on a ship and being so sci-fi, it’s more close to home. It all happens on Caprica and it’s more the personal stories of the families that live there so it’s less of a battle/war story and more of a life story..


Sindy: Wicked, I’ll have to watch it! I also hear you got to work with the guy from Law & Order: SVU.


Avan: Yeah, Christopher Meloni. We worked together on a movie called Gym Teacher. It’s coming out on DVD really soon, actually. Christopher Meloni was great, he taught me a lot. It was fantastic to watch him work—I like learning from example. He was really funny too. Law & Order: SVU is an intense show but he’s really got a gift for comedy that you wouldn’t guess.


Sindy: Who else would you really like to work with??


Avan: Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., Philip Seymour Hoffman. Ever since I was a little kid I’ve been watching movies, so I really appreciate great acting.


Sindy: What would you say is your favourite movie?


Avan: Benny & Joon, a romantic comedy with Johnny Depp, which is probably surprising since the genre I like is usually darker, but yeah—very cool movie.o problem, thanks Kidzworld!


Sindy: And who's your celebrity crush?


Avan: Natalie Portman. She is all kinds of hot and she’s ridiculously talented and ridiculously smart.


Sindy: Most definitely. Good pick. Thanks so much, Avan.


Avan: Thanks!

Here are my top 9 worst TV shows I have ever watched. 1. Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig (tie) 2. Marvin Marvin 3.  Pickle and Peanut 4 Fred Figglehorn  5. Annoying Orange 6. Austin and Ally 7. Dog on a Blog 8. The Day My Butt Went Psycho (I'm not Canadian but it doesn't look like a good show) 9. Lab Rats  Basically every show that has a laugh track.  If you are looking for a good show, watch Doctor Who. No laugh tracks, humor is used properly, good storyline, DOESN'T take place in a school ALL OF THE TIME (well, it does in some episodes such as school reunion) The cast isn't full of teenagers and parents won't get so annoyed of the show. It's about a 900 year old time lord (who looks like a human) that travels in a TARDIS. He has 13 regenerations and almost always has a female companion with him. He is the last of his species so he's always lonely on Earth.

Plus he said MOST on cartoon Network. Not every show. I have to agree. There is better TV out there... Such as.... *takes deep breath* Doctor Who (Better than ALL of the trash they show on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and most cartoon network shows combined) Old spongebob (not the new spongebob episodes) Sherlock (hmmm I have never watched the show but i have heard it's awesome) I worship the BBC for making good things happen to the world.
