The talented young actress and dancer will be seen in the upcoming Disney Channel film, Teen Beach Movie, which tells the story of two teens (Maia Mitchell and Ross Lynch) who get sucked into their favorite teen beach movie.
When she's not acting and hoofing it on the beach, Gray is also a budding musician who loves singing and writing her own music (you can check out her songs "You Don't Know Anything" and "Wasted" on iTunes). Zimbio recently chatted with Mollee Gray about Teen Beach Movie, the songs she's currently got on repeat on her iPod, her TV obsessions, and more!
What can you tell us about your character Giggles in Teen Beach Movie?
Giggles is a quirky, fun character a part of the surfer clique! She is always very happy-go-lucky until she has confrontation with the biker gang, then she lets her tough side comes out.
What's your favorite teen movie of all time?
The Breakfast Club!
What's the best and worst part about shooting on the beach all day long?
The best was simply the fact we were on a gorgeous beach all day! The view was amazing and the water was gorgeous. The only difficult thing was how hot it was. It made the sand hot, but that just meant in between takes we got to dip our feet in the ocean, which was awesome!
In addition to being an amazing dancer, you're also a singer. Who are your musical influences?
I have always looked up to Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Paramore.
What songs are getting a lot of play on your iPod right now?
Taylor Swift's "22," Selena Gomez's "Come and Get It," and Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop."
Have you gotten the chance to watch any of So You Think You Can Dance this season? Any favorite contestants yet?
Yes! I love Nico and Malece.
Teen Beach Movie airs on The Disney Channel this Friday, July 19. Check out a trailer for the beach-tastic musical romp below:
