So the movie was filmed in Puerto Rico; what was that like?

Oh my gosh. It was incredible and it was magical! There is just something about the air, and also, we had free time so we got to explore the island. We did El Yunque, so we climbed up in the rain forest. I became the translator for everyone. And I had way too much mofongo, for sure, but it was amazing. I love Puerto Rico!

What was your favorite part about doing this Disney movie?

My favorite part was the cast in general. We all became really good friends. Everyone is so supportive and incredible. All the stuff I learned not just through filming, but also dancing, that I’m going to get on So You Think You Can Dance. Watch! [Laughs] No, I’m just kidding. But I learned so much from my cast mates and there is nothing that can measure up to that for me.

What message would you like to send out to your fans about Teen Beach Movie?

I feel very blessed and overjoyed to be part of this Disney movie. It is so much fun and the whole family can enjoy it. It is incredible and I can’t explain how much you are going to love it. The musical numbers are amazing, the music is incredible, and you got a Latina in there so you have to support.
