Ava Jules: The 411


On The Ropes premieres today at 3PM! Before you watch, scroll to get acquainted with one of the show’s stars, Ava Jules:

What was your favorite scene to shoot and why?

Any scenes when we are all in the classroom where I get to be with everyone and show who I am as a character.

How did you originally get into acting?

I used to do acting Summer camp as a kid. My first play was Oliver, and I played an orphan. I loved it right away, but stage acting is so different from camera acting.

What makes it so different?

When you’re acting in front of a camera you have lots of time to get it right. There’s so much more flexibility to work with your emotions and perfect the scene.

What do you love about being on set?

Interacting with the other cast members! They’re really awesome and it was fun to get to know them.

Did you make a best friend on set?

I’ve gotten really close to Bella Shepard. Our characters hate each other, but off camera we really get along!

What do you hate about being on set?

I don’t think anything…

Who is someone that you admire or look up to?

Sandra Bullock. She’s a great actress and it’s inspiring to see how many different people she can portray.

Did you see her in Birdbox?

Yes, I was so blown away!

If you could be another character on a Brat show who would it be, and why?

I’d like to be Jackie, that’s Bella’s character on On The Ropes. She gets to play a mean girl, and I think it would be fun to pretend to be mean.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

I’ll be 28...hopefully married but still doing something creative...I don’t know…that’s crazy...I don’t even know what I’m doing in ten minutes!

Your YouTube channel has almost one million subscribers. How does that feel?

It’s really fun! So cool to know I’ve reached that many people.

Do you have any advice for someone who wants to build a following on YouTube?

Just start now!

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not on set or working?

I like to go to restaurants just to eat bread.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

Where I live now. Awahu, Hawaii. I wouldnt change anything.

What’s your favorite show currently?

I love Gossip Girl.

Who’s your favorite Gossip Girl character?

Blair Waldorf.

If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?

My sister Kayla. She’s a professional dancer in musical theatre...people in her world are so fun!

What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?

Probably my friends.

Do you have a favorite ice cream flavor?

Chocolate chip cookie dough.

Do you have a favorite ride at Disneyland?

Space Mountain.

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

Jules was my great grandfather’s name, so I use it as my last name!

We’ll see you at 3PM for the big premier—you won’t wanna miss this!
