In a recent interview, the actress dished on exactly what she was doing the moment she found out she booked the part, and it is too cool! Much like her down-to-earth character, the 14-year-old star was doing totally normal teen things when she got the life-changing news.
According to Ruby, her mom distracted her by asking her to come upstairs to talk about real estate and buying houses, while her friends and family hid in her room with balloons and silly string! When the singer walked inside, she was totally surprised!
“Finally after about five minutes of me being, ‘What the heck?’ somebody moved a balloon and behind it it said, ‘Congratulations, you booked ‘Holly Hobbie,’” and I started to freak out and probably cried.”
