We love Cruel Summer! After enjoying the premiere and reading our review, you already know why we love this show. Surely, the premiere left you with many unanswered questions. We had the pleasure of interview Olivia Holt and Chiara Aurelia AKA Kate and Jeanette for some secrets about what awaits their characters. Ready?
Here we go!
As you can see, we wanted to delve into the experience of Olivia and Chiara in Cruel Summer, to know how it had been for them to put themselves in the shoes of Kate and Jeanette. In addition to that, we were excited to know what they had learned from them and what lessons they expected them to teach us.
An artist, when they choose a role and shape it, make it their own, always understands their character and hopes that fans, when they learn their story, will do so too and learn something in the process. For Olivia and Chiara it was no different.
Also, do you know those icebreaker questions? Well, we play a game with both of them: describing their characters in words. These types of games always relax the environment while allowing us to learn a little more about the characters and how the actresses perceive them. And we loved the words they chose.
Of course, we couldn’t help but ask what the future held for Kate and Jeanette because, after the premiere and all the unknowns that the two episodes brought us, we have questions and can’t imagine what will happen next. There’re so many possibilities … Olivia and Chiara gave us their thoughts on what was about to happen and we can’t wait to see it all.
Cruel Summer already had us hooked but, after talking with Olivia Holt and Chiara Aurelia, it has us dazzled. They’re sweet, kind, friendly and absolutely lovely, they really adore their characters and understand them, even if they sometimes disagree with them. That’s the best thing about talking to an artist, when we notices the love they have for the project they are part of and in Olivia and Chiara you can see that love.
It’s clear that both of them left a bit of themselves with Kate and Jeanette and they marked Olivia and Chiara in a way that they also left something in them. And this connection shows not only on screen, but also when you listen to them. It’s beautiful.
We look forward to interviewing Olivia Holt and Chiara Aurelia again. Perhaps, fingers crossed, for season 2 of Cruel Summer.
