James Maslow from Big Time Rush and Dancing With the Stars chatted about his two upcoming films, future plans and proudest moments.
This past year, Maslow appeared in Sequestered, which was a great deal of fun. "It was crazy trying to fit that in with the Dancing With the Stars schedule, but it was fun to work on a different project, and then I did two more films," he said.
For Maslow, Dancing With the Stars was yet another fun experience. "It was different than everything I had done in my career. I got to learn a skill that otherwise I probably would have never partaken in. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of talented people. It also opened so many doors, in terms of audiences that didn't know who I was before," he said.
Through that experience on Dancing With the Stars, he was able to fulfill a young girl's dream named Hannah, which was quite moving, especially since she invited him who her prom, but he made it up for her by bringing Hannah and her family to Los Angeles to watch the live dancing show. "That was really cool and an awesome opportunity to make somebody else's day," he said.
His new film, Seeds of Yesterday, will be coming out on April 12. "Filming that show was so much fun. It was a huge departure than the characters I played in television before. I am really excited to see it myself and what other people think about it and how they react," he said.
Maslow's known for his cover song videos on YouTube, which are quite popular with his fans. Most recently, he covered Jennifer Lawrence's "The Hanging Tree." "That was fun. I tried to pick an unconventional song and I put my own twist to it. I will keep doing covers and in the near future, I will be releasing original music," he said.
In addition to Seeds of Yesterday, he will have another movie coming out later in the year called Wild for the Night. "I am very excited about them, since they are both different roles than the ones that I played in the past," he said.
Aside from his acting endeavors, Maslow started his own production company and he will be recording new music. "It will be a great year," he said. "I accomplished a lot of my own personal goals."
Gracing the cover of FitnessRX Magazine was another awesome experience for Maslow. "I have always been an advocate of a healthy lifestyle and fitness, and it was one of those covers that I had always dreamed about being on. I am glad I did it because it set a standard for me. I grew up as a chubby kid and I really changed my lifestyle with exercise," he said.
Maslow extended his appreciation for his fans. "I am more excited for the future for all of the things that I wanted to accomplish. I would like to thank the fans for their patience, and I hope they are excited as I am," he said.
He defined success as "Achieving your goals, and then setting new ones. Success means reaching a goal, and setting a bigger and higher one."
