Crushin' On: Girl Vs. Monster star Brendan Meyer
The movie focuses on Skylar, a teen girl getting ready for the big Halloween bash. But when she sneaks out after her parents say she can’t go to the party, an evil monster is unleashed—and determined to chase after Skylar. The night of fun turns into a battle as Skylar discovers her family’s ancient secret (that they’re monster hunters!) and what she must do to protect the world from this evil Hallow-meanie.
We got a chance to sit down with the super-friendly, super-cute cast on the film’s Vancouver set. Here’s what the adorable Brendan Meyer, who plays Skylar’s scaredy-cat BGF Henry, had to say about some of our spookiest Qs…
GL: What’s your favorite thing about your character, Henry?
Brendan: My favorite thing about Henry, is that he really wants to be there for his friends and family.
How are you guys similar or different?
We both like to have fun with friends and are kind of goofy, but I’m not as much of a scaredy-cat as him.
What would you say is one of your biggest fears at the moment?
What I’m really scared of is just people being in my house when I don’t know. I swear I can hear things like a creak or a shuffle downstairs sometimes!
Have an embarrassing horror story you’ve experienced in front of a girl?
I don’t have a specific moment, but it’s when I make a joke and I’m the only one laughing. That’s always awkward.
Have any girls played any crazy tricks on you lately?
Yes! I’m a huge fan of George Clooney, and these girls from my movie Mr. Young gave me a hard time about it. [One day] I went into my trailer and someone got me this gift. I expected it to be candy, but I pulled out all these pictures of George Clooney! It was a pretty funny prank.
What’s been your favorite Halloween memory so far?
Instead of trick or treating one year, I decided to stay home and scare people. I wore a mask, robe and had a bat and I’d jump out and scare the older kids when they’d come up to the door. And it was pretty fun.
What’s one thing girls do on Facebook that totally freaks you out?
Well, it’s the infamous picture in the mirror shot for me. I mean, it’s every girl, like all the time, and it’s funny. It kind of looks strange because you can see yourself in the mirror taking the picture, and it doesn’t really work! I just want I know why you do it, I guess.
