ABTV: Quarantine with the Stars : Collin Blackford

Rising star Collin Blackford is taking Hollywood by storm, and  proving he’s a force to be reckoned with.

Blackford Joined AfterBuzz TV’s Quarantine With The Stars where he talked about his hilarious character in the Disney+  film Stargirl, and what he has planned next.

The teen star plays Benny Burrito in the film which also stars Grace Vanderwaal and Graham Verchere, and according to Colin, his character loves to eat.

“I eat a ton, in every scene but like two I am eating popcorn, burritos, or pizza; that’s kind of my things” said Blackford. “It was really fun to play a character that’s kind of outside of my comfort zone, and I had to learn how to eat a lot.” 

Playing a character who loves to eat definitely comes with it’s pros, especially when you get to pick and choose what you want to eat.

“The first day on the set when we had the table read, they were like hey, you’re going to be eating a lot so what do you want to eat, what do you not want to eat.” Explained Blackford. It definitely had its pros, I got a lot of good food. I always say it’s like Brad Pitt in Ocean’s 11, he’s always eating something, and it was something that I could have fun with.

The film is based off the novel of the same name which portrays the message of not being afraid to be yourself, something that Blackford says drew him to the film.

It’s got such a prevalent message to it, but I think the best thing that it does is that it portrays it in such a realistic way, especially in today’s age the message is so prominent said Blackford. “The message of being true to yourself is one that’s timeless.”

Since its release the film has been getting rave reviews, and some of Hollywood’s elite have even recommended people to go watch the film.

I saw that Rick Riordan and Ncole Kidman put on their Instagrams to go watch this movie, it’s crazy to think it’s reaching as far out as those people. Said Blackford.

Speaking of big names, there are many actors that Blackford would love to work with in the future, but there’s one in particular that stands out.

“Bryan Cranston, he’s my favorite actor. I watched him  on Malcolm In The Middle when I was younger and then Breaking Bad. Just to see this guy who’s hilarious in that show then to change and go to this amazing character in Breaking Bad,  and he seems like such a nice person, and such a well rounded actor, if I could work with anyone it would be him, he’s amazing.” 

Blackford would love to do more movies and comedy television shows, but acting isn’t the only thing on his mind. He also has his sights set on college.

“Something that’s really important to me is to go to college, and  I’m looking at LA schools right now because I think it’s really important to have a back up, and course if I had a huge opportunity I’d drop everything and say yes.”

We’re sure many opportunities will be heading Collin’s way, and we can’t wait to see what he has planned next.
