Booboo & Fivel Stewart are two unique teenagers/young adults with unique names and unique talents. They're actors, models and also musicians who have made a name for themselves in recent years with their work.
Booboo is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Seth Clearwater in a couple of 'Twilight' films and Fivel has also done her fair share of acting and music. Together, they have released a couple of original songs and they also post song covers on their Youtube channel.
Musichel caught up with the Stewart siblings to find out more about themselves, 'Twilight', Fivel's upcoming single "Freeze" and their dream pets.
Fivel revealed that she's currently focusing on music composition for films (which is extremely commendable considering she's only 16) and Booboo has a few films being released soon. He is currently shooting a new film 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', in which plays James Proudstar/Warpath alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.
How did you guys get started in music and acting?
Fivel: Our father is an actor/ stunt coordinator and we grew up on set – music came accidentally. We just auditioned for a Disney group that was forming called T-Squad – I was too young and Booboo got the job. My dad then produced a group for me called My Allowance and we opened up for Booboo's group!
How was it like playing opposite each other as brother & sister in ‘Hansel & Gretel: Warriors of Witchcraft’?
Booboo: We both had a great time!
Do you get recognized while walking on the streets? Is it weird?
Booboo: Since Twilight, it’s a lot harder to go places without being noticed but that’s okay, I appreciate the fans.
What is the most awkward fan encounter you’ve had?
Booboo: [Laughs] Well, I will just say there have been quite a few women my mom's age asking me things or saying things that were pretty awkward…
Are you guys into sports? What’s your favourite sport?
Fivel: We both do Karate.
Booboo – You played Seth Clearwater in 3 of the films in the Twilight series. Were you a fan of the series before you landed the role? What’s your most memorable experience on the set of Twilight?
Booboo: Well, I really didn’t know a lot about it but I did read all the books and became a fan – I would say the best memory is just showing up on the first day & being there.
If you could have keep any animal in the world as a pet, which would it be?
Fivel: A Tea Cup Pig!
Booboo: A monkey.
Fivel – Tell us more about “Freeze”!
Fivel: It’s really a fun song that makes you want to dance. We shot what I think is going to be an amazing music video and I think it will be placed in a film we just wrapped!
Auditions can be nerve-wracking sometimes. Which was your toughest audition and why?
Booboo: I can’t say which is the toughest but they are pretty hard – I will say that the best one was with the director Chuck Russell. He is amazing.
What are your favourite smartphone apps?
Tell us more about your upcoming projects.
Booboo: X MEN! Haha, I’m really excited to start working on that – the series is amazing and Bryan Singer is a beast! I also have a few other projects that I am excited about starting and some great films coming out: ‘White Frog’, ‘Space Warriors’, ‘The Well’, and ‘An Evergreen Christmas’.
Fivel: I am concentrating on doing music for films and modelling – really focusing on Asia!
