Friends of Brat: Meet Brighton Sharbino
Fifteen-year-old Brighton Sharbino has appeared on eleven different TV series and nine feature films. But what you can't find on her IMDB page is the fact that she's one of the coolest, most genuine girls we've met. We got to know her over caramel Frappuccinos; now it's your turn!
Of all the many, many scenes you've shot what was your favorite scene and why?
In Miracles From Heaven they built this huge tree--like thirty feet tall--and we got to climb up on it and then jump off wearing harnesses. I like doing action stuff. I practiced rock climbing to get ready for this scene. Lots of fun.
How old were you when you started acting?
My professional acting career started when I was seven and booked a role on Hannah Montana.
How did it come about that you got into the acting world?
I was doing competitive cheerleading and hated it. I wanted to get out and do another activity. I had a friend whose mom was a professional actress and I thought it seemed like something I'd be into. There was an acting school in our neighborhood, so I signed up for classes!
What do you love about being on set?
Honestly, I love Crafty. There's all kinds of food. I love spending time with my cast and crew. The main thing i’ve learned from being an actress is teamwork. It's really cool working together to create one thing.
What do you hate about being on set?
Sometimes you dont have good phone service and you're stuck there for a long time. Once I was waiting in a trailer alone with my grandma and the crew completely forgot to tell me I could go home, so I I ended up being stuck there for hours.
What's your favorite thing to do when you're not on set?
I like hanging out with my friends, going to theme parks and water parks, going to see movies.
What's your favorite theme park?
What's your favorite movie?
I have a few. 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Outsiders, and Up.
What's your favorite TV show currently?
American Vandal because my sister is in it.
Who has been your favorite celebrity to meet?
Jennifer Garner is the sweetest person ever. She overheard me talking with my friend about how I've always wanted a typewriter and she sent one to my house. I don't know how she got my address, but it was a delightful surprise.
If you could be anyone for one day, who would it be and why?
JZ. I'd get to hang out with Beyoncé all the time. And I could go to people's houses and just be like “Hey, I'm JZ,” and they'd be like “Whoa”.
One last fun fact?
I tested out of high school when I was thirteen. I'm great at memorizing formulas, so that's how I did it!
