Teen Music Insider caught up with triple threat Zara Jirgis to talk celebrity drenched red carpets and more!
Welcome Zara! We have seen you on multiple red carpets in Hollywood, but there are times you get to walk the red carpet and interview celebrities during different film and TV premieres. How did you get started doing celebrity interviews?
Honestly, I received an invite out of the blue from AppleTV one day, with a media coverage request. I had replied accepting the offer and the next thing you know I’m not only walking the red carpet but also doing interviews with celebrities on the red carpet as well! From then on, I began getting more requests.
Does it feel different being the one doing the red carpet interviews than being the one being interviewed on the red carpet?
I’d say the first time I began doing interviews of celebrities walking the red carpet at a premiere, it felt a little strange because I’m usually the one being interviewed. Also, there were a few celebrities who I personally know in which I got to interview them so it felt a little awkward. But now I’m so used to it and look forward to all the requests I get.
Out of all the celebrities you have interviews on the red carpet, who has or have been your favorites?
Oh this is a tough one! I would have to narrow it down to a few. I’d say getting to interview John Ratzenberger (Cheers), Terry Hu (Zombies 3), Benjamin Valic (Spidey and His Amazing Friends) and Sean Giambrone (Jurassic World) are my favorite so far.
Who do you hope to get to interview on the red carpet one day?
I would love to be able to interview Eminem, Adam Sandler, Johnny Depp, Britney Spears and Gabriel Iglesias on the red carpet.
How do you prepare for the interviews?
The way I prepare is I’ll research to see who the cast members are off the premiere I’m attending and will also get a glimpse of other confirmed celebrities attending. I’ll put together some general questions and I’ll put together a couple personalized questions for each celebrity I’m going to interview.
Out of all the premieres you have attended, which Premiere has been your favorite?
My favorite Premiere that I’ve attended would have to be Disney+ Zombies 3 works premiere. That premiere was everything I could have imagined especially since I’m a huge Zombies fan!
Are there any premiers in 2023 that you would like to get invited to for the red carpet and to do interviews at?
Yes, I would love to be able to attend Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live action premier and the Super Mario Brothers premiere!
We can’t wait to see who you interview next!
