Any time that we have time to take off, we love being home.
Australia is so cool that it’s hard to even know where to start describing it. The beaches are beautiful; so is the weather. Not too crowded. Great food, great music, really nice people. It must be a lot like Los Angeles was many years ago.
Getting in shape for the soccer scenes was work, but mostly, just being away from your friends a few weeks-that was hardest.
How can you be organized when you’re in Times Square?
I am a really bad test taker. I can get straight As in school, but I get nervous on test.
I get extra time to take the test because of my ADD. Everybody’s brains works differently and I just need longer for things to register.
I learned how to play the drums. When we were in pre-production, when we were still in LA, I had a couple of drum lessons and then some in Toronto. I got the one beat down and that was it.
I like to go to parties where I know everyone. How are you going to have fun with people you don’t know?
I love to play games. I really like football, and I also like to ride horses.
I think one day I want to be on the other side of the camera-maybe directing.
I think we have the same goals in mind. We are not planning on just all of a sudden taking a film and separating. Hopefully one day she can direct me in something, or I will direct her. Or we’ll produce a movie under our company’s name.
I usually do get the tomboy parts in the movies, which is kind of like me, but not totally. I like to shop as much as Ashley, but she is a little more of a girlie-girl than me.
I want to go to culinary school because I love cooking. One day I’d love to open up a restaurant or cafe.
If they’re going to write a story they’re going to write the story whether it’s true or not.
Just as we have had great working lives, we have also had good personal lives. For instance, we have made school our number one priority. We have been in school our entire lives with kids our own age. We guess that’s pretty regular.
Me and Ashley feel like we’re totally different.
Our career is a dream. I mean, we get to act, travel around the world, and meet cool people. What’s not to love!
Our ultimate goal is to stay in business. We are not here with a specific plan. That’s kind of how our entire career has evolved. We will figure things out as we go along.
The best part was the food. There are some great Italian restaurants we go to whenever we are in Toronto, so the eating was a definite highlight.
The press has been good, but we try to stay out of the public eye when we are not working. And we do not really like to talk about our personal lives.
We are very different.
We did many of our own stunts. We had our hands full. In fact, the roles were physically demanding.
We do a lot for our website-marykateandashley.com, so that’s keeps us pretty active on the net.
We get along really well, but TV and film aren’t reality. We’re best friends, but we do have our fights!
We had to decide: Do we want to do Saturday Night or go to our Senior Prom? We opted for Saturday Night Live.
We have been roommates our entire lives. We just bought a place together.
We kinda look at this as the second or third chapter of our lives. After college, most people figure out what they want to do with their lives. But we already know what we want to do in the future and that is to continue to further our business goals.
We learn a little bit from each new movie we make. We paid a lot more attention to how a movie is directed this time.
We love video games, and Acclaim gave us the perfect opportunity, so we took it.
We played soccer a lot with our friends and at school. We weren’t on an official team or anything, but we’d definitely be up for it in gym or in after-school pickup games where we live.
We really love acting. We are getting a taste of that now with producing and it’s fun, but it’s hard work!
We were always surrounded by people who knew us very well and cared about us.
We were never thrown into the situation in the middle of our lives, but grew up doing it. This is all we know, and some people who were thrown into it don’t really know what to do or how to react and this is just kind of natural for us.
We will probably always be in business together.
We’ve always been fans of a good mystery; we think all kids are, and there weren’t any good mysteries out there these days for kids, so that’s why we decided to do them.
We’ve grown up with a huge family and with the support of each other. We’ve also been able to go to school at the same time.
We’ve played producers almost our entire lives in everything else we’ve created. But when working on a feature and even dealing with something like Warner Bros. or another production company, or other details that you can worry about – we definitely learned a lot.
We’ve read scripts, and I think right now we are just focusing in on school.
