PHOTO! Here is a picture of Tammin Sursok of Nickelodeon’s Spectacular! Who is more spectacular, Tammin Sursok or Vanessa Hudgens?
Tammin Sursok and Nolan Gerard Funk in Nickelodeon’s Spectacular play the Nick version of the Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron’s parts in Disney’s High School Musical.
Spectacular premieres tonight and many say it’s better than Camp Rock.
She talks to MTV about her upcoming role:
On adapting to her character, Courtney: “I’d never been able to play a comedic role with such an A-type personalty before. So I watched a lot of films like Grease and Election. And Courtney’s definitely a perfectionist, so I found the character’s neuroses and the little things that perfectionists do and adapted them to myself. It also came down to how she walked. She walks really upright which is not how I walk. So every time I’d walk upright, I would morph into her.”
On show choirs: “I’m from Australia, and we didn’t have show choir there, so I hadn’t even heard of it! It’s kind of an American phenomenon. But it sounds like so much fun! I would’ve been it!”
On kissing her co-star, Nolan Gerard Funk: “The kiss was supposed to take place on stage, and then there was back-and-forth banter about where the kiss would take place. We didn’t know where we were going to kiss, so Nolan was like ‘Why don’t we just do both?’ I was like ‘Mmhm. Sure.’ But we went for it right at the end, which seemed more appropriate.”
On her music career: “I did music in Australia and London, and I’ve been approached by a few different record labels, but I haven’t figured out where I wanna go. Sometimes if you wanna do music, you have to put your whole heart and soul into it, and I just don’t know where I wanna go with that right now.”
On her Valentine’s Day plans: “I’ll still be in New York, so we’ll see what happens. Maybe I’ll be asked to dinner!”
