Jasmine "Earth Girl" Alveran Interview

Very few people get a chance to meet a legend, but Jasmine Alveran got to work with one of the biggest—Michael Jackson! Check out Kidzworld’s interview with Earth Girl from This Is It!


Check out Jasmine as Earth Girl when This Is It comes to DVD on January 26, 2010!


Michael Jackson handpicked Jasmine to play the part of Earth Girl in his 2009 tour—that’s her holding the earth at the end of the movie. The This Is It tour was supposed to hit dozens of major cities, but Michael’s untimely death on June 25th cut the tour short. Instead, the behind-the-scenes preparations were turned into the hit movie, This Is It.


A Lucky Girl

“Some people don’t get the opportunity to be with Michael on stage,” says Jasmine. “It was great to meet him—he was very friendly.” Jasmine didn’t have a lot of acting experience before she landed the role of Earth Girl, but her enthusiasm and easy-going disposition make it easy to see why Michael would choose her. “I have a very outgoing, friendly personality,” laughs the cheery second-grader. Was she a Michael fan before the show? “Oh yes, I have lots of favorite Michael Jackson songs,” she says. Jasmine names Thriller and Smooth Criminal as some personal faves.




Acting + Dancing

Jasmine has been refining her acting craft since the wrap of This Is It. Her favorite part of acting class is the warm-ups. “You just have to pretend there’s an imaginary ball in your hand—you make a noise when you throw it and when you catch it!”


Jasmine also spends time working on her fancy footwork. “When I first started [with the This Is It tour], I met the dancers and they were very nice,” Jasmine says. She was so inspired by MJ’s dancers that she signed up for hula classes! But as much as she loves shaking her hips, acting is still her first love. “I had lots of fun getting ready for that!” Jasmine says of the This Is It premiere. “I like that part of [the job] a lot!”


Jasmine’s not sure who her favorite actor is, but her favorite movies are Another Cinderella Story and Princess Protection Program. It sure sounds like Jasmine is a pro at her first job—being a kid!

    “Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
