Dana Ward talked with Ashley Argota at the GBK, Tiger Beat & Bop Gifting Lounge celebrating the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards. The two chatted about college life, and Ashley dished on working with Cody Simpson.
‘Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures’ will be coming at you soon with all new episodes on Nickelodeon. We got to chat with the stars of the show.
Ashley Argota plays the ambitious Kelly Peckinpaugh. Her character is the apple of Bucket’s eyes, but she seems not to take much notice there. See how Ashley got to land the roles she’s known for today below!
Fanlala: What do you like most about your character Kelly on ‘Bucket & Skinner’?
Ashley Argota: She is an over-achiever in real life. She’s a part of every single club in school – a cheerleader, part of the welcoming committee. Kelly’s everything, and I was a lot like that when I was in school.
F: It must feel great being a part of the Nickelodeon family. Do you have any favorite Nick shows new or old?
AA: I absolutely loved ‘The Amanda Show’. That was one of my favorite shows in the world when I was growing up, it was hilarious with the dancing lobsters! I also really liked ‘Drake & Josh’!
F: Bucket, Skinner, and Kelly are all great surfers. If you could become instantly good at any sport, which would you pick, and why?
AA: Oh man, I actually think it would have to be surfing. I’m the only part of the cast who doesn’t know how to surf. I know on the hiatus Tiffany took the time to learn how to surf, and I feel like I should learn now.
F: We know you started out on a show called ‘Star Search’. Can you tell us about your performance on the show that launched your career?
AA: Ah yes. I was ten years old at the time, I had a little red dress on, braces. I was an absolute nervous wreck, but it was a lot of fun. The girl I was competing against in the preliminary rounds was actually one of my best friends. Everyone was like “they’re going to be so competitive,” but we worked really well together. I also remember Arsenio Hall picking on me a lot. He always said I had something in my teeth, but he just meant my braces. He was really funny. It was basically my introduction into national television, and it was just a great time.
F: Right now you’re attending school at New York University. What goals do you have for your future?
AA: Right now I’m on a break, but I’m planning on going back sometime soon. I really do want to finish school. Things happen, even in show business, and I really want to have a Plan B, so I want to finish nursing school. I took a chemistry class my first semester. Hopefully I’ll be finishing school very soon!
