We’re thrilled to say that we had the opportunity to catch up with Avan Jogia on the red carpet for ABC Family’s 2013 25 Days of Christmas Winter Wonderland event in New York City. Following the red carpet, the stars of ABC Family were invited to try their luck on the ice at the iconic ice rink at Rockefeller Center.
We had the chance to chat with Avan Jogia about the new episodes of Twisted premiering in February. Avan chats about about the holidays, how he handles getting recognized on the street, and what viewers can expect from Danny this season when the show returns.
Twisted returns on Tuesday, February 11th 2014 at 9/10c on ABC Family.
Check out our interview with Avan Jogia below! Watch the video:
We loved seeing Avan on the red carpet. We really appreciate him taking the time to stop for us on such a hectic day. He was so kind and we appreciate it!
What secrets can you reveal about the new episodes of Twisted?
Avan Jogia: Danny does something in the first two episodes that changes who he is pretty profoundly. That’ll be an intense..I can’t wait for people to see. It’s very exciting.
It’s very vague.
Avan: It’s pretty intense. It’s central to the rest of the show. Nothing is going to be the same.
So it sets up the storyline for the rest of the season?
Avan: Maybe for the next two seasons.
Twisted has been a huge success. Have you noticed any reactions on the street? Are you getting more noticed?
Avan: Yeah, sometimes. I don’t go out. I’m working and when I’m not working, I’m sleeping. It’s really cool. Every time that happens I feel really surprised and really lucky. I don’t recognize myself half the time in the mirror. I’m like “Who’s that guy?” I gotta cut my hair. I find it very flattering.
Have you had any extreme reactions? Anything that stood out for you?
Avan: A couple times. Nothing I couldn’t handle. Sometimes it’s very like “Oh, wow. That’s quite a reaction to seeing a person.”
What about just being here in New York?
Avan: New York, it happens a lot more. It’s a walking culture. But it’s been fun. I love New York. It’s my first time being here this time of year. It’s amazing. It feels like Christmas.
Are you going to have the chance to go ice skating?
Avan: Here’s the thing. I’m Canadian. I can ice skate. Because I have to be able to do that. Every year I discover if I can do this or not. I usually can. I’m gonna do one lap. If I can do one lap, I’m gonna go sit down. I don’t want to push my luck. That’s my goal.
Do you have any Christmas traditions?
Avan: I spend time with my family. This year, I think we’re gonna go to London. My father’s English and I’m English. I’m gonna be doing that with my family. That’ll be really nice. I love Christmastime. We’ll get together and drink tea, watch television..simple stuff.
