Joey As Ramona
Beverly Cleary’s popular book series comes to life with Joey in the lead role! She plays Ramona Quimby, the quirky little sister to Beezus, the mature older sister played by Selena Gomez in Ramona & Beezus. “Selena is a super person,” Joey said. “I feel like we are almost real sisters. Her mom and step dad are so nice. I love spending time with them all.” Joey says Ramona “has a really good imagination, but sometimes that imagination gets her into all kinds of trouble.”
Did You Know?
- Joey loves to watch UFC fights with her dad.
- She loves ketchup so much that she puts it on almost everything.
- Joey’s sisters, Haley and Kelli, are also actresses!
- “My family and I watch Survivor every week. We even yell at the TV like someone is listening in there.”
- “I don’t really have a favorite role. I love to act, so I get excited about every job I am lucky enough to get.”
- “The rejection is hard sometimes. You might really want a part so bad, and you think you did a great job auditioning. You even go for call backs a few times, and then someone else gets the job. I get disappointed like everyone else. I remember there was a part I wanted really bad recently, and when I didn’t get it, I had a hard time not thinking about it. My mom always says, that you have to experience the disappointments to really appreciate when a job does come. I guess that’s why I don’t have a favorite job or part; I feel lucky to have them all.
