Check out what she had to say. You can see the Amber Montana Full Interview here:
Being on Set
Amber described her experience working on set as always changing but also fun. The schedule for her current role in The Haunted Hathaways involves filming, rehearsals, table reads and of course keeping up with school during the day. “We all have a really great time and we get to film and go through hair and makeup and work with new actors every week and new sets and it’s an amazing experience,” said Amber.
The support received from her family was and continues to be an important aspect of Amber’s success. “My Mom she does everything for me, without her I would definitely not be anywhere close to where I am today,” said Amber. “I mean all the support I get from her and my family and my brother and my dad and everybody is amazing and I don’t know what I would do without it.”
Advice for Kids
Amber’s experience breaking into the entertainment industry gave her some insight, which she wanted to share with other kids. “One thing is definitely know that this is your passion – this is what you want to do,” she said. “And you know being young and doing the business there is a lot of rejection that comes with it and just not to get upset over it and know that your time is coming and that what’s meant to happen will happen and just to believe in yourself and be yourself.”
We were pleased to have Amber as a guest at our most recent program at Disney World. At the conclusion of her Premiere experience Amber shared her thoughts on what she had taken part in. “I’ve had such a great experience. I got to meet so many people who are so passionate about what they do and they are so motivated,” said Amber. “I think Premiere is such an amazing way to get your name out there and I mean I’ve had like four friends who’ve done this program and they are all working actors.”
“I think if I had known about it I definitely would have done it because it’s just so awesome that you get to experience the callbacks and learn a bunch of stuff instead of having to do what I did – I went to acting classes for years. You kind of learn all that in just a short week,” she concluded.
Amber is currently involved in the second season of The Haunted Hathaways. The Nickelodeon sitcom began airing on July 13, 2013 and revolves around the story of a single mother and her two daughters who move into a home that is already occupied by three ghosts. The ghosts consist of a single father and his two sons and the families work together to solve their problems using both supernatural powers and ordinary human methods.
