ALY MICHALKA: ‘CHEELEADING IS IN MY BLOOD’
ACTRESS Aly Michalka loves cheerleading!
The 21-year-old — who stars in upcoming CW series Hellcats, about teen cheerleaders — says she grew fond of cheerleading while filming her new show.
“I have no cheerleading background, but my mom happened to be a Raiderette that went to the Super Bowl, and they won, which is rad, and a Rams cheerleader and a UCLA cheerleader,” Aly told a Canadian newspaper.
“So that’s kind of a cool thing. I’ve never had an interest to be on a squad, probably because there’s no home-schooling cheerleading squads. That might be weird, a home-schooling cheerleading squad. Very small.”
But Michalka admits she was hesitant to look at the script for Hellcats.
“I didn’t really know what the writers had in mind, so I was like, ‘I don’t know, cheerleading, hmmm?’ but I read the script and fell in love with it,” she said.
“then when I actually filmed it, my respect level for cheerleading went up 1,000%. Cheerleading is bad-ass. These people are athletic. These people are trustworthy because they are there to catch you when you’re up in the air, flying.”
And that fine body of hers? “Yeah, but nobody really knew, which is kind of funny,” she said. “I guess I wouldn’t be walking around with a crop-top all the time.”
