The Girls of "Prom" Defy Stereotypes
Starring in Walt Disney Pictures' new dramatic comedy “Prom” are six of today's most promising young actresses. They are Aimee Teegarden, Kylie Bunbury, Danielle Campbell, Yin Chang, Janelle Ortiz and Raini Rodriguez.
“Prom” portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite as the big dance approaches. For Nova Prescott (Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one “Prom.”
Producer Justin Springer states, “Casting was top of the list for us in what we had to do to make a great movie. The big thing was finding great young actors. We spent a lot of time and put a lot of emphasis on finding the right actors for each of the roles.”
Aimee Teegarden (Nova Prescott, the “True Believer”). We all know the type…the straight-A student and head of the Prom Committee who makes it all look so easy—possibly because she is a perfectionist who pays obsessive attention to detail in everything she does. Nova is a born pleaser and rule abider who loves her family and wants them to be proud of her. She is passionate about every project she undertakes…but just can’t seem to see beauty in imperfection.
Kylie Bunbury (Jordan Lundley, “Born to Be Prom Queen”). Oh, to be Jordan…the most popular girl in school! There’s no question she was born to be prom queen and wind up with the hottest guy in school...one look at her will tell you that. But Jordan will soon find herself forced to go beyond her comfort zone and find out who she really is…and what she is really made of.
Danielle Campbell (Simone Daniels, “The Fresh Face”). Simone is the girl next door. Beautiful, friendly and accessible, Simone has no agenda—she is free-spirited and approaches life with an open innocence, appreciating the moment. Somehow this outwardly-and-inwardly beautiful girl has flown undetected under the teen-guy radar…until now.
Yin Chang (Mei Kwan, “The Perfect Partner”). Mei is a playfully artistic and stylish senior who has had a long, loving relationship with Justin—a sweet, smart guy who is an understanding, attentive and all-around great partner. They are the perfect couple for all the right reasons. Although Mei thrives on the security of her established relationship, a part of her yearns to experience what lies ahead and discover her own individuality. Their relationship is tested when a secret that could impact their future comes between them.
Janelle Ortiz (Ali Gomez, “The Gossip”). Nova’s gossip-hungry best friend is a buzzing ball of energy, sticking her nose into everybody else’s business, especially classmate Rolo’s—she’s the most skeptical that his Greek-Canadian girlfriend actually exists.
Raini Rodriguez (Tess, “Her Brother's Biggest Fan”). As her big brother Lloyd struggles to find a date for the prom, freshman Tess stays steadfastly by his side. Encouraging his every endeavor to ask a girl to the big event, she also isn’t shy about pointing out which of his tactics appear overly desperate and lame. And Tess is not about to let Lloyd blow off prom because he comes up dateless—she has an awesome contingency plan.
Opening soon across the Philippines, “Prom” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
