YEM was able to speak with Ava about what it was like to film during Covid, lessons she learned from her cast mates, and about similarities that she has to her character Charlie.
Young Entertainment Mag: Are you similar to your character Charlie in any ways?
Ava Grace: I’d say I’m very similar to Charlie. We both write songs and play guitar, and even personality wise we share some of the same qualities. Charlie is definitely the more quiet and reserved one of the group.
YEM: What was it like shooting a movie in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic?
Ava: Honey Girls was my first movie, so shooting during the pandemic is all I’ve known. We had to quarantine for 2 weeks in Vancouver before working, but I didn’t really mind it. I don’t mind the masks or regular testing either. I’m just glad and thankful everyone is taking the precautions to stay healthy!
YEM: Did you learn any lessons from your fellow castmates?
Ava: A lesson I learned from Ashanti, is to pour a soda like coke on the floor before a performance so it’s not slippery. Will remember that in the future!
YEM: What was your favorite memory from being on the set of Honey Girls?
Ava: Aliyah, Frankie, and I have so many incredible memories together. I can’t pick just one! Most of my favorite memories are just hanging out at the hotel and acting totally goofy together. We actually knew each before we were cast in Honey Girls, so we were already friends, and that made it even more fun.
YEM: What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making videos on TikTok?
Ava: The advice I would give would be to always stay authentic to yourself, and never compare your qualities to someone else’s. Also I think it’s important to make sure you know your boundaries and surround yourself with good people.
YEM: Can you share anything about your latest single coming out in October?
YEM: Who is your biggest role model and why?
Ava: Some of my biggest musical inspirations are Fiona Apple, Lauryn Hill, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and many more.
YEM: Where do you hope to see yourself in the future with your content creation, music, and acting?
Ava: I hope in the future I will continue to write songs and make albums. I’ll continue to keep finding ways to express myself, whether it’s poetry, art, etc. Also, I’m currently working on a new acting project. I can’t wait to share more about that in the future.
YEM: What do you hope the message the audience gets from the movie Honey Girls is?
Ava: I hope the audience will take notice of the strong stances women take in Honey Girls. I also hope they will see how magical the presentation of friendship is, and take away the love and care for others that we actually felt on set.
