KW: How old are you and where are you from?

  • Aedin: 12 and a half and I was basically raised here in California.

KW: What made you interested in becoming an actor?

  • Aedin: I love movies like Lord of The Rings and Star Wars. My brother actually wanted to become an actor and when I saw him meeting with agents it kind of fell into place- they all wanted to meet with me as well and the rest is history.

KW: How do you relate to your character, Angus, in A.N.T. Farm?

  • Aedin: I think I am funny and fearless like he is. I am not as good as him with computers although I would like to be.

KW: What has been your favorite A.N.T Farm episode so far and why?

  • Aedin: That’s a tough one. We have so many great writers on the show - it’s hard to pick a favorite episode, I would have to say Season 3 has been great- it has been my favorite season.

KW: Are you friends with any members of the cast off-set?

  • Aedin:  I am friends with all of the cast members but I hang out with Sierra McCormick off set mostly. Our families have become great friends.

KW: You've appeared in some movies with big name stars, did you ever feel star struck?

  • Aedin:I was super excited when I met Seth Macfarlane, Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Giovanni Ribisi working on Ted. But, I didn’t know what “star struck” meant until John Rhys Davies pulled up on set to work on an independent film I worked on last year. Words were not coming out right and I felt very nervous -which never happens.

KW: What are some of your hobbies?

  • Aedin:  I am really into the Ranger’s Apprentice books by John Flanagan. I love anything to do with Medieval period. I like going to the archery range and shooting my bow and arrows. I also like jumping on my trampoline, riding my bike, fishing and swimming and cooking.

KW: We hear you're interested in food issues and are vegetarian, can you tell us a little bit about why?

  • Aedin: I actually am not a vegetarian but eating whole, healthy, organic foods is important to me. I do have vegetables be the main portion in my food choices now. If I do eat meat, it is organic and grass fed- but mostly I eat organic vegetables, fruit and fish. I try to avoid sugar (I don’t drink sodas ever) and do my best to avoid GMO’s (genetically modified foods that are dangerous to your health and the environment)

A.N.T. Farm kicked off Season 3 on May 31st, 2013A.N.T. Farm kicked off Season 3 on May 31st, 2013Courtesy of Disney

KW: What kind of projects do you hope to work on in the future?

  • Aedin: Star Wars or a Lord of the Rings movie or something like that.

KW: Which actors do you look up to the most?

  • Aedin: I think Johnny Depp is cool because he transforms into his characters so well.

Your Fave...

  • Animal: Bulldogs
  • Movie: Lord of the Rings
  • Snack: Carrots and Majestic Raw Vegan Garlic Dip and Hummus
  • Sport: Hockey

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
