INTERVIEW: WonderCon 2014 – Star-Crossed Cast & Writers

Star-CrossedRomeo & Juliet is a classic because we all love a forbidden romance, and so who can argue that throwing that dynamic into a science fiction setting is dramatic gold? Such is the story of Star-Crossed, the tale of forbidden romance between a human girl (Aimee Teegarden) and alien boy (Matt Lanter) as the aliens (Atrians) are integrated into a high school setting after having been banished for ten years. But what’s Romeo & Juliet without the dramatic “family” rivalry? As their romance causes a violent encounter between their two families, can this couple’s love – and peace between the species – survive?

We sat down with the entire cast of Star-Crossed on Friday, April 18th at WonderCon in Anaheim, California. They told us about the crazy shenanigans on set, and star Matt Lanter even showed us a personal video from the filming of the epic under water kiss (complete with fire cannon being fired over the water, while our two stars were feet below!).
