Introducing Indiana

BRAT - Feb 10 2018-3.jpg

We caught up with Indiana Massara, star of Chicken Girls and Brat Chatto get a glimpse into what it's like to be her! Here's what we learned:

You do a lot in the Brat Universe, what's been your favorite scene to shoot so far?

There's a big dance sequence at the end of the Chicken Girls movie where my character Rooney, and Brooke's character Ellie get back on the dance team. I had never done a dance scene before, so getting to do that with all my friends was really cool. We had a lot of fun rehearsing it too, even though it was way too hot and we were all complaining. But it was still loads of fun. 

What's the best thing about being on set?

I love getting to hang out with my friends basically 24/7. 

What do you hate about being on set?

I don’t think I hate anything as far as I can think of. It’s hard to focus when you don’t want to focus. You want to hang out with your friends but you have to snap back and realize this is your job. 

What would you tell someone who thinks your life is perfect?

It’s definitely not perfect. Im a regular teenage girl. I have to do homework and chores and I have responsibilities and I have a curfew. You might see the glam stuff, and it is definitely fun, but what you don’t see is after all that we go home and put on sweatpants and watch Netflix. We have to deal with hundreds of thousands of people's opinions. It’s not perfect a perfect life, nobody's is.

When you're not working, what are you up to?

Watching movies or going to the beach at night. Not swimming, just hanging out on the sand under the stars. I like going to the movies with my friends, going to In N' Out, normal teenager stuff. We bring our speakers wherever we go so we can have music. 

What's your favorite song out right now?

I don't know what my favorite current song is, but my favorite song of all time is Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley. 

What about a favorite TV show? 

New Girl is so much fun. And That 70s Show. But I mean, Friends is the greatest show of all time. 
Who's your favorite Friends friend?
Rachel. Although I do love Monica...and Ross is so good...look, they're all amazing. Choosing a favorite Friends friend is like choosing between your mom and your dad. I can't do it. 

You have a very successful YouTube channel, what's your favorite video you've posted? 

I'd have to say that's my music video for Smoke in My Eyes

What was your first time on set and what was it like? 

It was Summer of 2017 and I barely remember it. I got a call not even a week before that I had booked the job on Attaway Appeal. I didn't know anyone there and I was so nervous. The first scene was with Cayden Conrique by the lockers. I had to lure him into a room… I barely even remember it, it feels like a million years ago. 

Before we wrap up, can you tell us one last fun fact? 

Red is not my favorite color. Its black. Red is my power color and it makes me feel confident, but it's not actually my favorite. In September of 2017 it just became a theme for my Instagram. I was loving the color at the time and just sort of dove right in. Now it's spiraled into this whole thing where people are like “hey, you're the girl with the red instagram!” I can see how anyone would assume it's my favorite color, but it's not. 

Tune in on Sundays at 3pm to watch Indiana shine on Brat Chat!
