  • Name: Kendall Schmidt

  • Interests: Horseback riding, camping, fishing, surfing, the great outdoors

Class Act

Kendall got into acting for one simple reason: because his brothers were doing it. Backed by the “most supportive parents you can have,” Kendall and his family moved out to Los Angeles so that he and his brothers could pursue their entertainment careers. “I remember when I was younger my dad was like, ‘I don’t care if you’re a trash man, as long as you’re the best trash man you can be.’ That always encouraged me,” he says. “As long as you can work hard, you can do whatever you want.”

Casting Call

Kendall’s part in Big Time Rush took the longest to cast, so the Kansas native ended up being the last person to join the group. His audition consisted of reading lines from a script and playing two songs of his choice. He decided on performing a Forever The Sickest Kids cover, and a song that he wrote himself because “I figured I knew it best,” he admits.

Rocking Out

Although Big Time Rush is heavily influenced by pop and R&B, Kendall, the rocker of the group, says the new album still allows his true colors to shine. “Ultimately, you can sing a song any which way you want to,” he says. “I personally think that I kind of have a rock voice, and there’s stuff on the album that I never thought I’d be able to sing. But I hit notes that I never did before, and it just really tested my limits. I think people are going to be really excited to hear what we can do.”

I am actually a shipper myself. In fact, I didn't really believe in that many shippings except three. But I honestly think this is a nice pairing for whatever reason. Maybe it's the fact that this time Serena ACTUALLY has canonical crush on Ash? I usually base my beliefs on true facts. And they're in a region based on France. It is a rather romantic atmosphere, which I guess is why I get challenged by so many honeymooners in the Pokemon Y game... Anyway, why don't you post what you think? Are they a nice pairing, or do you think other shippings are better? I understand, because Pokeshipping is a worthy opponent.
