‘Bucket & Skinner’s Epic Adventures’ will be coming at you soon with all new episodes on Nickelodeon. We got to chat with the stars of the show.
Tiffany Espensen is the young actress who plays the sassy Piper Peckinpaugh. With a spiteful nature towards Bucket and a soft spot for Skinner, find out that behind ‘Bucket & Skinner’s’ little firecracker is much more fun and sweeter in real life!
Fanlala: What do you like most about your character Piper on ‘Bucket & Skinner’?
Tiffany Espensen: She’s definitely a LOT of fun to play. Piper is very much the opposite of me. She’s not that very nice to people, and I consider myself to be very nice to people. That’s the main difference between us.
F: It must feel great being a part of the Nickelodeon family. Do you have any favorite Nick shows new or old?
TE: I loved ‘Drake & Josh’, I watched it all the time. It was so much fun. I loved Miranda on it. I’m a HUGE ‘iCarly’ fan. And ‘Catdog’, I kind of remember it. I was so young when it was on. Oh, and I still enjoy watching ‘Dora the Explorer’.
F: Bucket, Skinner, and Kelly are all great surfers. If you could become instantly good at any sport, which would you pick, and why?
TE: Well, definitely NOT football. I wouldn’t want to get tackled and bruised. OH! Snowboarding would be a lot of fun. I always when skiing when I was a little girl, and I thought that snowboarding would be really cool. Except I wouldn’t want to get hurt. I wouldn’t have to worry, though, if I was automatically good at it!
F: On the show, Piper hates Bucket, and we’re not too sure why. Why do YOU think she hates him?
TE: She loves Skinner, so that might have something to do with it. He just spends too much time with Skinner. That’s my guess as to why. Then again, maybe she secretly likes Bucket, too!
F: You’ve already starred with some big names in ‘Hop’. Are there any other actors or actresses that you’d want to act with?
TE: I LOVE Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway. I would love to work with all of them. And my HUGE celebrity crush right now is Logan Lerman from the ‘Percy Jackson’ movies. I’d love to work on something with him and Sandra Bullock. I’m also really into ‘The Hunger Games’ right now (Team Peeta all the way!) and when my friend told me she was friends with Josh Hutcherson, I almost freaked. I’d love to do something with him.
