MEG

When you’re not acting, what do you like to do in your free time?

I like to write music – I’m constantly writing down lyrics. I like to take dance classes, because I love to dance, and I also love to hang out with friends and family as well.

 

What would your advice be to readers that would like to get involved in acting?

I would say keep training, take acting classes, and try to constantly meet new people who are actors as well. Having support from people that understand where you are coming from is really important. It takes a lot of time, hard work and dedication but, if you stick with it, you can be successful.

 

Who is your role model and which actors do you love?

I love Daisy Ridley who is in Star Wars. I think she’s so cool. I definitely want to be like her.

 

What is your dream role?

When I was 5, my dream was to be in a Disney Channel Original Movie that was a musical! Now, I think my dream role would an action movie; maybe a Marvel or a Star Wars movie. Something like that would be really fun to do.

 

What’s the most fun role you have ever played and why?

Addison was pretty fun – and I say that because there was singing and dancing. Filming in Toronto was so much fun. We were in a different country, with all these new people and new experiences. I was learning and growing so much on Zombies, so that was a really important time in my life.

 

Describe your character in three words?

Brave, optimistic and caring.

 

How did you prepare for the role?

I definitely didn’t think there would be that much dancing! Once I realised that, I tried to dance all the time to keep up with it. I took voice lessons as well.

 

If you could be any other supernatural being that wasn’t a zombie, what would you be?

I think I would be a vampire – that would be really cool. Vampires can go out in the night time and not the day, which I am fine with as I am really not a morning person!

 

If you could sum up the show Zombies in one word, what would it be?

Spectacular!

 

What is the most important message of the show?

Accept yourself and also accept others at the same time. Always embrace your differences, because what makes you different makes you amazing!

MILO

Have you always wanted to be an actor?

When I was younger, I wanted to be a director. I spent so much time behind the camera, watching my mom, that I just thought that would be really cool.

 

What would your advice be to readers that would like to get involved in acting?

I didn’t go out and try to look for this part. I just kept doing musicals and was spotted! If you keep doing what you love — something good will happen!

 

Who is your role model and which actors do you love?

The role model I haven’t met is Jim Carrey — he is just so unique. And, my mom!

 

What is your dream role?

I don’t know, I’ll maybe have to get back to you on that one!

 

Are you similar to your character Zed, in any way?

Yeah! Well, other than him being a zombie!

 

If you could sum up the show Zombies in one word, what would it be?

That’s impossible! One word? Important, it’s important that people watch this show!
