J-14 caught up with Another Cinderella Story star Drew Seeley who is currently playing Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid on Broadway through August 30.
He chatted with us about his opening night, working with Selena Gomez, and which High School Musical cast members he still keeps in touch with (remember, he went on tour with the HSM crew as Troy Bolton!).
J-14: How did you land the role of Prince Eric?
Drew: I've been working with Disney for a number of years, but I've never worked with them on Broadway. When the opportunity to audition came up, I came right to New York, I auditioned and met the whole creative team. Then about two weeks later I got a call and they said, "Yeah! Let's do it!"
J-14: What was opening night of The Little Mermaid like?
Drew: It couldn't have been more perfect. My parents, my drama teacher from high school, and a lot of my best friends were there. Everybody came out to support me. The cast made me feel welcome right away and everybody has been awesome. It's going to be a great summerÂ -- I'm really excited!
J-14: We hear there was a huge crowd of fans waiting for you when you left the stage door -- what was that like?
Drew: It was crazy! I was like, "Are the Jonas Brothers here? What's going on?" It was great!
J-14: Selena Gomez said that you were her favorite co-star of all time. What was it like working with her in Another Cinderella Story?
Drew: She's such a sweetheart and always a professional. It was funny when we first started working together because she had experience being on set from Wizards of Waverly Place and I had experience with music, so we helped each other out a lot. We learned a lot from each other and we still keep in touch.
J-14: Is there anyone that you still keep in touch with from High School Musical?
Drew: I still talk to Corbin [Bleu] and his band all the time -- those guys are really good friends of mine. And a few weeks ago I shot a few webisodes with Lucas [Grabeel] for a series that's called, I Kissed a Vampire. We both play vampires, but that's all I can say about it. It's going to be released over the summer.
J-14: Speaking of vampires, are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Drew: I'm Team Bella -- she's cute!
