Lucy Hale is a treasure. She’s adored by legions of her fans and is one of the most endearing to watch actors out there. Similar can be said about Kunal Nayyar. One of the biggest fan favorite TV stars. I mean who doesn’t know or love Raj from The Big Bang Theory?! Now the two favorites come together on-screen in The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.
I had an opportunity to speak with Lucy Hale and Kunal Nayyar about working together on A.J. Fikry. Kunal talked about his memorable one-take scene. Lucy discussed working on book movies and searching for love on and off-screen. Plus, much more from them!
How cool was that! I’ve been trying to speak with Lucy for a while and it finally happened. She’s fantastic. First time connecting with Kunal also, he’s cool also. Lucy has this great energy about her. She’s very engaging. Kunal seems like a nice and laid back kinda guy.
So I had to ask Kunal about that TV dinner swipe. I can’t believe he did it in one take. That scene really caught my attention and relayed all I needed to know about how A.J. Fikry was feeling and what headspace he was in. Well done Kunal, well done.
Lucy might have convinced me that finding love in a bookstore might still be a possibility, thanks Lucy. Kunal echoed her sentiment on that. Now, Lucy Hale is becoming the “it” girl of romantic movies. Emma Roberts falls into that category also. So Lucy is also the go-to girl for book turned into movie stories also and she acknowledged that. She also stated that she’s looking for romance on and off-screen!
Kunal had some really nice words for Lucy Hale about her characters being so easy to fall in love with. I wholeheartedly agree with Kunal.
