Liv­ing the Pi­rate Life

We chat to Dy­lan Play­fair who plays new VK Gil!

Little Angel - - CLEVER ANGEL -

Hi Dy­lan! Tell us about Gil – what are the sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences be­tween you guys?

Prob­a­bly the big­gest dif­fer­ence be­tween Gil and I is our abil­ity to Pi­rate. Gil’s a much bet­ter pi­rate than Dy­lan. Sword fight­ing, swash­buck­ling, sea ship liv­ing, he does it all re­ally well... I like to be on boats with my friends too but that is as close as I have ever been to be­ing a pi­rate.

Do you think you could be a pi­rate in real life?

100%, just be­cause I am. Or one now does not mean I can­not be one in the fu­ture... it is pos­si­ble. I also have some friends I am pretty sure would join

my crew, so I am half­way there. What was it like be­ing one of the new kids on set?

I was a bit ner­vous to join a cast that al­ready had such close re­la­tion­ships, but we were wel­comed like fam­ily and that is the way the set felt dur­ing the whole shoot. It was re­ally great. Was tak­ing on a mu­si­cal a chal­lenge? It was one of the most ex­cit­ing and dif­fi­cult chal­lenges of my ca­reer! We re­hearsed for two full months and the boot camp got us into amaz­ing dance/ bat­tle shape. I am very proud of the work we all put into D2.

What’s your favourite mu­si­cal num­ber from D2?

It is hard to pick one! ‘ It’s Go­ingDown’ had some great dance moves and story el­e­ments with some ma­jor cli­mac­tic mo­ments in the film so I’ll go with that one! Be­fore you landed the role of Gil, had you seen Descendants? Did you have a favourite char­ac­ter? I had watched Descendants be­fore au­di­tion­ing for the se­quel and I think my favourite char­ac­ter Ben... Dy­lan used was King hockey to be a Hope is just player Mitch still and charm­ing not en­joys play­ing too ice hockey to love! He is a in his free time! great dude too.
