Interview: Sophia Grace and Rosie

posted by Nell Minow

Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray on May 20. I am a big fan of these cute little British girls, and it was a treat to get to talk to them.

Sophia Grace, tell me what character do you play in this movie?

Sophia Grace: I actually play myself, Sophia Grace.

I see and was that easy to do?

Sophia Grace: Yes, it was actually quite easy to do, it quite fun as well because you got to act how you’d really act in real life.

Even though it was a script written by somebody else?

Sophia Grace: Yes, it was still was like life.

Rosie, which what of you is better at remembering lines, which one learn the lines quicker?

Rosie: We’re both the same.

Which one of you is most likely to laugh when something goes wrong while you’re filming?

Sophia Grace: Rosie laughs as well, we both do the exact same thing, we’re both the same.

Rosie why do you think children will love this film?

Rosie: Girls will like it more than boys, but boys will like because there’s a superhero in it and girls will like it because of pink as well, there’s lots of pink.

Sophia Grace, what was the hardest thing about making this movie?

Sophia Grace: I think the hardest thing wasn’t actually anything to do with the movie it was just like when we we’re practicing the lines it goes over and over again because we have to do the scenes over and over again. The director would say “one more time” but it would actually be a hundred more times. That was quite hard to keep doing it all the time but it was really fun to do as well.sophia grace rosie royal adventure

Rosie, did you get to wear some lovely dresses in the movie?

Rosie: Yes, it was mainly dresses and they were really nice, we got to wear a pink dress with a sash, like royalty.

What about you, Sophia Grace? Did you have a special dress that you liked in the movie?

Sophia Grace: We got to wear white gloves, which was really nice, and this big puffy purple and pink tutu one too, actually sequin top it was joined together like the dress.

What’s the funniest thing that happens in the movie that would make kids laugh?

Sophia Grace: What made me laugh was when we were doing the ledge scene there was pigeons, people were putting pigeons there that supposed to be a part of the cast and they were throwing seeds at the pigeons and it was exciting and funny. So I think kids will find that funny. And it was really funny to shoot too.

Rosie: And we got the giggles because the pigeons were like bouncing their heads. We got the giggles.

You have to teach the princesses in the film, right? So Rosie what did you teach them?

Rosie: We had to teach them how to curtsy like royalty and act like royalty.

And Sophia Grace have you ever seen royalty in real life?

Sophia Grace: Yeah, we actually have, me and Rosie we got to perform for the Sultan of Brunei’s birthday. Her name is princess Amira.

Was it like you imagined?

Sophia Grace: Not at all really. She was actually just normal like us. She was wearing a trousers and a top.

I’m very excited about your film and I hope that I get to meet you two in person someday if you come to Washington D.C.

Sophia Grace: I would love to come to the White House!
