It was an exciting Friday night when patients welcomed “Teen Beach Movie” and “Grease Live” star, Jordan Fisher, to Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Cheers and applause erupted as the actor/singer appeared through the glass doors of Seacrest Studios as patients exclaimed, “Teen Beach Movie is my favorite!” Immediately, patients started interviewing the star asking questions like “What is your favorite movie?” which Fisher embarrassingly answered From Justin to Kelly and “What will you name your future pet?” a question Fisher pondered before replying “Carly,” after one of the patients in the room. Fisher also revealed his start in the acting industry began in 5th grade, all because of a girl! When she asked if he was going to the Drama Club meeting he quickly responded yes, and has been an actor and singer ever since.
Fisher also revealed to patients that he procrastinates getting out of bed in the morning, even though he feels the most productive when starting the day early. We learned that with a busy day on set or a long day in a hospital, Fisher recommends always finding things that bring you joy. Hang out with family, find a hobby, watch shows or movies, read books, or listen to music to distract you from all the waiting.
Finally, after a fast paced round of the “Hum Along Game” Fisher ended his visit with a skeptical patient asking if he really starred in Teen Beach Movie. To prove himself Fisher was able to remember and perform part of the “Surf’s Up” dance from the finale of the film.
