cae2xuuuaaejnzs

Most of you guys recognize Kylee Russell as Corbin Bleu’s adorable TV sister. Ever since Disney’s ‘Jump In’ aired in early 2007, the 20 year old actress has made her own name for herself. Guest starring on hits such as ER, Girl Meets World, Just Jordan, & Modern Family put her on the map! This beauty also has a hidden talent: she can sing. Plus, her fashion statements are the BOMB. Style steal coming atcha soon 😉

You may recognize her sister, Chelsea Tavares, who’s also in the acting business. The two are peas in a pod. Kylee is such a doll, and I had the best time doing this interview. Surgeon’s Warning: You may fall in love with her. Read ahead at your own risk.

What was it like working with such an amazing cast on Girl Meets World? Favorite person to work with? Girl Meets World was SO much fun to work on! I loved every single person on that set! Cast and crew! They are all unbelievably talented and were an honor to work with. Plus I got to see Cory and Topanga in action. They will forever be couple goals!

Is it true you guest starred on Modern Family, but totally forgot to watch the episode? Haha, have you watched it yet? What was your experience like on set? YES!! ? I guest starred, had the cutest costume (70’s disco chick) and was in a scene with Rico Rodriguez. But yeah, I totally missed the episode and just kept missing it every time it came on and I’ve still yet to see it!

Out of everyone you’ve worked with, who do you stay in touch with the most? There’s a good amount of people that I stay in touch with mainly through social media but I’d have to say KeKe Palmer. We were like family before Jump In and I absolutely adore her.?

What projects are you working on now? I can’t say much on it now BUT it’s an exciting one and can’t wait for everyone to see it.

You’re well known for your ADORABLE role as Karin from Jump In. How do you feel it has played a part in your acting career today? Jump In definitely pushed me further in my career. And also reassured me that I wanted to act for the rest of my life. When it first came out I was no longer “Kylee”, I was “the girl from Jump In” and I didn’t mind. ? It was an amazing experience and I’m forever thankful.

What your favorite fan interaction by far? I received a fan letter from Germany and she told me I inspired her to pursue her dreams. And reading/hearing that from fans truly makes my day and encourages me to never give up and keep on going.

I’ve watched your vlogs & I’m a long time subscriber! What advice do you have for others who want to start vlogging? What camera do you use? Oh no way!! Thank you!!❤️ Well first things first, just be yourself! Post what YOU want to post and have fun with it. I always wanted to vlog but never started right away because I didn’t think people would find my life interesting. But then I was like “you know what? I’m just doing this for fun! If people like it, great! If they don’t, oh well.” And I film on an iPhone 7! The camera is bomb!

The Time I Crushed Jesse McCartney’s Foot

2014 was the year I met Jesse McCartney. As I dragged my little brother along, my heart was beating at an agressive rate. Every 10 year old girl grew up with Jesse & the fact that I had the opportunity to see him live was insane. As we poured into the B93.7 Studio, I could feel the anticipation. My brother grumpily crossed his legs, upset that I pulled him away from his bed. Finally it was time & all cell phones were prepared for that first glimpse. As soon as he walked out my heart sunk. Jesse was old. His wrinkles painted his face, but his smile was just the same. He was no longer that heart breaking teenage boy from the J-14 posters on our walls. He was a grown man promoting his new album.

My Brother & I on TV

His girlfriend was parked in the corner of the room the entire time. I remember asking about her, and apparently she was some actress on some show. She looked annoyed & gloomy. To her I’m sure we were just a roomful of kids. But Jesse. He was just like everything I’d seen on TV & his music videos that I watched on repeat. He poured his heart into his songs & you could feel the energy he gave off.

As we formed a line for the meet & greet, my brother was just about fed up. I made sure we had everything ready to take our picture & go. When security gave the okay, we headed into the room. Words can’t explain how enchanting that moment was. I’d been imagining that moment for YEARS. He addressed us & thanked us for coming out. I headed for the right side of him, while my brother sluggishly stayed on the left. The photographer told us to lean in & in my starstruck state, I CRUSHED HIS FOOT. I’m not talking stepped on his foot, I had on combat boots. I could barely walk in them myself. All the weight on my body shifted his way. I could hear a sharp gasp in pain as his girlfriend & his publicist, startled, jumped up at the same time. Nonetheless, he still managed to take a great picture & I’ve never bolted out of a room so fast. We bumped into his guitarist on the way out & I made sure to grab a picture before we left. I don’t have it anymore because my phone got stolen in Myrtle Beach (which you can read about here if you haven’t already).

The only thing I thought about that entire day, was how I was probably the conversation of his night. I’m sure he didn’t expect to show up to a meet and greet & leave with a killer limp. Still, one of the most memorable meet and greets I’ve been to & I have no regrets 🙂 hopefully he still thinks I have a “Beautiful Soul”.

You can watch the entire performance here. In fact, the concert made it on Jesse’s official website here which was kinda cool. love you xx thanks for reading
