Hey Guys!! So excited to be chatting with you!! Can you tell us how you first got into acting?

Selena-Marie: We started doing a lot of modeling and print jobs when we were young.

Andrea-Marie: I booked Babies R Us and it just went from there.

You guys just announced that you are in a new Holiday film! How excited are you for your supporters to see you in your new film “Holiday Rush”?

Andrea-Marie: We’re so excited! We cant wait for everyone to enjoy this wonderful holiday movie! Its feels like we’re in a dream!

Selena-Marie: We’re super stoked! The cast worked so hard and we hope everyone enjoys it!

What was the process like to get these roles?

Selena-Marie: We had to audition a few times before we got the official call that we were the twins they chose. We were so excited. We couldn’t believe that our dream had actually come true.

Andrea-Marie: The process was a lot of fun because we pretty much picked out who we wanted to play during the auditions but we also memorized each  others lines in case they wanted us to switch roles for the movie.

Can you spill any details about the new film?

Andrea-Marie: We dont want to spoil anything but its about how our dad in the movie, Rush Williams, loses his job at the radio station and our family has to move into a smaller house. We don’t like it very much because we know we’ll have to make a few sacrifices and take things off our christmas lists.

Selena-Marie: In the end they learn a lesson, that “it’s not what you have but its what you have around you.” It’s a great lesson to hear especially on Thanksgiving Day when we should be thankful for what and who we have.

Do you have any rituals that help you get pumped up to shoot a scene?

Selena-Marie: When we were shooting, it was really cold so we had to find ways to keep warm and stay pumped. So we would have a small dance party in our trailers.

Andrea-Marie: Those were fun especially on the days we had an early call time, we would play music and make videos before we had to go on set or to our tutor. 

Is there anyone you want to thank that’s helped you get to where you are today?

Andrea-Marie: We would first like to thank God, our parents and big sister. They’ve done so much for us to make sure that we can pursue our dreams.
