Meet The Lying Game’s Kirsten Prout
August 13, 2011
We’ve been counting down all week to the premiere of The Lying Game on ABC Family – the hot new show about twins Sutton and Emma that switch places and then Sutton mysteriously disappears! The show is finally here on Monday night at 9 p.m. ET and CG is psyched to catch up with one of the show’s stars, Kirsten Prout. You may recognize her as Twilight’s (Eclipse) own Vampire Lucy and now she’s playing Sutton’s BFF Charlotte on The Lying Game. Kirsten dished on how she’s like her character, if she’s Team Edward or Team Jacob and what being a part of Young Hollywood is really like!
Cosmogirl: What is it like on the set of The Lying Game?
Kirsten Prout: It is so refreshing. The cast is honest, kind, inclusive, and talented. You very rarely get sanity and talent in one package but all our girls and guys are good, upstanding people with huge careers ahead of them.
CG: Are you anything like your character Char?
KP: Char and I both love to shop . . . a little too much. We are also both alarmists, I have a definite panicky side, albeit I’m a little less hysterical . . .most of the time!
CG: How are you guys different?
KP: Char is far more popularity obsessed. She just tries too hard socially, and she means well, but it’s just not healthy to be stifling a nervous breakdown every time she sees a social snafu. I, on the other hand, have never even begun to understand the art of Queen Bee-dom. That was definitely clear all throughout high school!
CG: What’s the worst lie that you have ever told?
KP: I always find the worst lies are told in relationships – I learned to never lie about your happiness in order to save someone’s feelings from being hurt. It always ends up being so much worse down the line. It’s better to be honest about how you feel.
CG: How about the worst lie ever told to you?
KP: I dated a guy for over a year who lied about his age the entire time. I found out after the fact and couldn’t believe it! I even threw him a birthday party for the wrong age… I couldn’t get over how hard he had tried to keep it a secret! It was really pathetic and embarrassing!
CG: What was it like being in Eclipse?
KP: Being a part of the Twilight phenomenon was life-changing, there is a whole other world of Twilight fandom! Going to the premieres and meeting the fans who live and breathe the books and movies was pretty unbelievable.
CG: Are you Team Edward or Jacob?
KP: I’m going to turn over a new leaf and not choose favorites – neither hero needs any more fans! They’re set for life.
CG: Who is your celebrity crush?
KP: Who can resist the boys of True Blood? All of them. Please, don’t make me try to choose!
CG: How would you describe your style?
KP: Bohemian yet polished. I like sundresses with cowboy boots, little shorts with big wedge heels and a big piece of turquoise. I also love classic, Old Hollywood romantic styles. I’m country girl meets city girl circa 1930.
CG: Explain what it’s like being a part of “young Hollywood”?
KP: Young Hollywood is overexposed and misunderstood. I think anyone can find faults in someone who shares too much about themselves. With social media today, you have these fresh young celebrities who would usually carry an air of mystery but instead start announcing their every thought, cellphone picture, and the occasional misguided opinion. We all make mistakes while we’re young, but it’s now just easier to make those mistakes and have them immortalized through technology. I think it’s just important to remember that everyone, especially young people, change almost every week, and we are always learning.
