The role of ten-year old Piper will be played by (ironically enough) ten-year old Nina Kremer:
Even though she’s relatively new to film acting, Nina is a theater work veteran. I typed with her on the ol’ computer box as she took a break from doing whatever it is that ten-year olds do:
Brendan: Are you a really fast typer like I am?
Nina: Not at all.
Brendan: Want to have a typing race?
Brendan: Ok, so we each type the first sentence of the Constitution and whoever gets it first gets a dollar. Ready? Go! “We the people of the United States in order to form a more perfect union…” that’s all I know.
Nina: We the people… you win
Brendan: You owe me a dollar.
Nina: I don’t have a dollar.
Brendan: Betting with kids is the worst. So what do you like about acting?
Nina: That you get to step out of your own life a step into another person’s life. My mom says it keeps me off the streets.
Brendan: Is your life that terrible that you want to step out of it? You seem like you’ve got a pretty good life going.
Nina: No, but it is fun to see what it is like to be another person. I like my life.
Brendan: That’s good. So you’re in what grade now? (I know nothing about kids.)
Nina: 4th grade.
Brendan: Have you told the other kids you’re going to be in a movie?
Nina: I have fun reminding them. They think it’s cool.
Brendan: Anyone jealous of you?
Nina: Oh definitely.
Brendan: Nice. What are you most looking forward to about making the movie?
Nina: Seeing what it’s like to work with people taller than children for a change.
Brendan: Yes, Grayson‘s very tall.
Nina: And not a child!
Brendan: Technically not, I guess.
Nina: Which character do you most identify with?
Brendan: Ooooo… good question. I think I actually relate the most to Tracy, who is your mom. How about you – which one do you relate to the most?
Nina: Piper, I guess.
Brendan: It’s ok. You already got the part. Did your agent tell you to say that?
Nina: No, my mom did.
