While sports may be our primary focus here at Page Q, we also happen to be big fans of anything and everything pop culture, and nothing in pop culture has been as talked about in the last month as SyFy’s sure-to-be-award-winning movie, Sharknado.
We spoke with one of the stars of the film, Aubrey Peeples (@AubreyPeeples), about everything from the difficulties of pretending to be scared of imaginary sharks to singing the national anthem for the Orlando Magic to the time Nicolas Cage cried on her shoulder.
- The wonderful ridiculousness of a Sharknado audition: “I went to the audition and I walked in and I was like, ‘Okay, so just to clarify, the sharks are falling from the sky?’
- Shooting her new movie, Tokarev, with Nicolas Cage: “I had to be completely still and not move in the first scene that we had to work on together, and all of a sudden, the director calls action and he’s crying on my shoulder and my shoulder is wet from his tears, and I was just like, ‘This is the most amazing moment of my life this far…but I cannot move or say a word.’”
- Oh, and she also might’ve sang “Ain’t No Sunshine” for us… That’s a thing that may or may not have happened.
It’s also important to note that in the movie Sharknado, Peeples plays Claudia, the daughter of Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, so good luck trying to get the image of those two having sex out of your head. You can’t unsee that. I tried.
