My Time Hanging Out in the Middle of the STUCK IN THE MIDDLE Cast!
I recently had the chance to hang out in the middle (literally!) of Disney Channel’s STUCK IN THE MIDDLE cast. Don’t you think that I fit right in? I think I could blend right into this family! How much fun that would be because let me tell you, this television family is loads of fun!
If you haven’t seen the show, it’s a fun show about the large Diaz family and it centers around middle daughter Harley (played by Jenna Ortega) who is the middle of the seven children.
The show is written and produced by Linda Videtti Figueiredo and stars Jenna Ortega, Ronni Hawk, Isaak Presley, Ariana Greenblatt, Kayla Maisonet, Nicolas Bechtel, Malachi Barton, Cerina Vincent, and Joe Nieves.
On screen, this cast has a very fun and loving chemistry. I had a chance to meet them behind the scenes and get a peek at how things look without the cameras rolling. One thing that really stood out to me was the off camera chemistry … these people really love each other! In fact, it seemed like one big family up there – the way that they joked and kidded with each other, but also in the way that they spoke very highly of their time together. In fact, Cerina Vincent who pays mother Suzy Diaz in the series actually got teary eyed a few times talking about “her kids” and in her words “love is love.” LOVE!!
Here’s a fun clip from our interview in which she shares her love for her on screen children:
Seeing the entire cast together, they really do come across as a very believable family. The bigger kids seem to look after the littles and the parents were just beaming watching their “t.v. kids” talk about their family. I also loved how playful they were with each other, you could really tell that they enjoy their time together. My daughter had recently shared with me an article in Discovery Girls that she read about Jenna Ortega being a big prankster, so I had the chance to ask her if there were any pranks happening on set. She quickly took full pride and responsibility and I got it all one film! Here’s a fun clip featuring the cast members sharing an prank that they played on brother Ethan Diaz ( played by Isaak Presley):
My daughter adores this show, and I enjoy the fact that main character Harley (and all the kids for that matter) is very motivated and hard working. Harley is actually very smart and is a bit of an engineering prodigy, always inventing and creating and I think that sends such a wonderful message to young boys and girls.
Here in this clip, Harley Diaz (Jenna Ortega) and Georgie Diaz (Kayla Maisonet) sent my daughter Lauren a sweet message that absolutely made her day:
I also love that no matter what the episode is about, there is a strong theme of family (obviously) but kind of an all for one and one for all mentality. A great show for the entire family!
