Troop Zero is a new Amazon original movie, and it has already been a hit with families. I talked with some friends who saw the movie as soon as it came out this past weekend, and they said it was FABULOUS and very uplifting. So I had to see it and totally agree – it was so heartwarming, and had such good messages for all ages.
And the Twin Cities Frugal Mom team had the privilege of interviewing Milan Ray who plays Hell-No in the movie!
My contributor Cassie Davis got to sit with Milan and ask some questions about the film, which she shares with us below.
First, here’s a brief synopsis of the movie:
In rural 1977 Georgia, a misfit girl dreams of making contact with outer space. When a national competition offers her a chance at her dream, to be recorded on NASA’s Golden Record, she recruits a makeshift troop of Birdie Scouts, forging friendships that last a lifetime and beyond.
My Interview with Milan Ray, from Troop Zero
(by Cassie Davis)
I had the honor of interviewing the young actress, Milan Ray, who portrays Hell-No in the new movie Troop Zero. During this time, I got to talk with her one-on-one to discuss the movie and herself. Ray is a smart, charming, extraordinary actress who has the ability to find herself within her character and identifies the multitude of messages within the movie. She gracefully conversed with me about how this movie is a perfect fit for everyone of all ages, and how the audience can find themselves in the characters on screen. We discussed about childhood and how so many kids and teenagers experience the same things that this movie presented, then tend to build walls around ourselves to protect us from others. I’m very excited to see what she does next and I hope you all enjoy this non-spoiler interview.
