Nolan Sotillo Q&A

Nolan Sotillo starred in Disney’s hit teen drama/comedy Prom as the loveable and love-struck soccer-star sophomore Lucas. Off-screen Nolan is a talented musician as well as an actor, and he couldn’t be more excited about Prom’s release on DVD and Blu-ray later this month! Find out more in his Kidzworld Q&A.

KW: Are you excited for the release of Prom on DVD and Blu-ray?

  • Nolan:  There’s so many great things that are gonna be on the Blu-ray, cause I know the DVD only has a couple things,  the Blu-ray had bloopers, deleted scenes, seven music videos, it also has this thing with Nicholas Braun where “boy needs to find a prom date” continues.

KW: How did you get the part of Lucas?

  • Nolan:  When it actually occurred, when I found out I booked it I was freaked, it was just another audition you know? It kind of pays off to try your best at every audition you never know what can happen, you can get a hundred nos but if you just get one yes it can change your life. I really love the character Lucas so I think I was really feeling it at the time, and when I read the script I thought it was funny and interesting.

KW: Do you think you’re similar to Lucas in any ways?

  • Nolan: Yeah I feel like there are a couple aspects of us that are similar, music is a big part of his life, he’s in love with his band and his best friend, music is a big part of my life and I have a really close best friend, but thankfully I’m not as awkward around girls as Lucas, but other than that I feel like we’re really close.

KW: What was the best part of being on the set of PROM?

  • Nolan:  Bringing my guitar to set everyday and just jamming with anybody from people in the caf or extras behind the scenes, it was such a great experience

KW: What did you like most about the story?

  • Nolan:  My favorite part is when Yin or May I should say, tells Justin that she’s going to dump him, it’s a really harsh and touching scene and it kind of shows just how they were so close and they’re supposed to be this perfect couple, and he says “Look at me, it’s enough.” That for me, personally, was the best line in the movie.

KW: What has been your favourite role you ever played?

  • Nolan: Prom is the first film I did, so it would definitely be Lucas.

KW: We hear you are musical, what instruments do you play?

  • Nolan:  I play guitar, piano, and I’m learning to play the drums

KW: Do have plans to pursue a career in music?

  • Nolan: Yes that’s definitely an interest of mine, I would like to be able to do both, and a lot of the times they won’t take an actor seriously in the singing industry or a singer seriously in the acting industry. Singing was probably my first love, and song writing. I write a lot of love songs and heartbreaking songs.  

KW: When did you first start performing?

  • Nolan: I always liked performing in front of my parents friends, my dad bought me a karaoke machine  and I would put on a Michael Jackson song like Thriller, and I would come out with like a hat and a jacket and like moonwalk in my socks, so I was always performing. Sixth to eighth grade I used to do musicals at my school, but I really started getting serious about it January of 2010, that’s when I moved to LA and decided to really pursue this.

KW: Do you have any projects coming up soon?

  • Nolan: Yes I have a Disney pilot called Madison High, and it’s a spinoff of High School Musical, so it’s singing and dancing. I play a character called Colbie Baker, he’s an anime artist and his drawings are incredible but his number one motto is “don’t stand out” and his cousin comes to school and he tells her that and his cousin doesn’t really listen and she does the exact opposite, she signs up for clubs and starts talking to everybody, it’s kind of a fun storyline.

KW: What actors or musicians do you look up to the most?

  • Nolan: I look up to Michael Jackson a lot, he’s just so incredible and his message was just amazing, I feel that if we have the ability to make a difference we should and he did, and his family still does. I’m a big fan of Bruno Mars, he’s a strong writer and producer.

What’s Your Fave...

Would You Go to Prom Without a Date?

  • Yeah, why not?
  • Maybe if I'd asked every available guy already.
  • No, there's no way I'd be seen without a date.
  • I think prom is for losers.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. '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.”
