When David Henrie and Halston Sage stopped by for our live Q&A to talk about their new film, Grown Ups 2, they answered questions about their first auditions ever, how they chill out and much more.
It's rare that actors land the first gig they try out for, but David made it happen. "I did, actually. It was for Burger King, and I was 9 years old." Halston's first audition was for a pilot on Nickelodeon. "I didn't get the part, but I ended up getting on a Nick show the next year," she said.
When it comes to chilling out, both actors kept it simple. Halston opts for horseback riding. "I grew up riding horses for eight years," she told us. "I was at a barn six days a week with my horses and friends." For David, it's family first, "I like to do Sunday fun day with my family," he said. "I go with my Nana, she cooks up a ton of food and we all hang out."
What was it like for David and Halson to work with huge comedians like David Spade, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and Kevin James in Grown Ups 2. "It was a crazy experience because you grow up watching these guys in movies and you respect them so much," said Halston. "What all those guys have in common is that they're just normal people," added David. "They're talented at what they do, they're humble and I'm happy that they're successful."
