It was so much fun to sit down with the main cast of “Footloose.” The film is a love story after all and these two actors succeeded in making us believe in their against all odds romance.
Kenny Wormald is perfect in the role of Ren, the rebellious teen who challenges the status quo, and Julianne Hough can act! We all know her from “Dancing with the Stars” but trust me when I say, she can emote lines as much as performing her dance routines. She plays Ariel, the preacher’s wild child daughter.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Their interest in working on the movie
*** Working with writer-director Craig Brewer
*** Is Ken nervous that he’s stepping into Kevin Bacon’s big dancing shoes?
*** Julianne is a triple threat – dancer, singer, and now, actress!
*** The dramatic confrontational church scene for Julianne
*** The warehouse, angry dance for Kenny
*** The cameos in the movie
*** Shooting the final dance scene
Here's more info on "Footloose" from Yahoo:
Ren MacCormack is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont's local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister's troubled daughter Ariel in the process.
