J-14 - - News -

Get ready to be­come soc­cer ob­sessed be­cause Ama­zon is launch­ing their lat­est show The Kicks on Au­gust 26. And lucky for us, two of its stars — Sixx Orange and Is­abella Acres — are telling

J-14 all about the goal-wor­thy se­ries.

J-14: Hey, girls! For those who don’t know much about the show yet, what’s The Kicks about?

IA: It ba­si­cally fol­lows Devon, a girl who moves to Cal­i­for­nia and has to join a new school and soc­cer team ... only to dis­cover that the team isn’t quite what she ex­pected!

J-14: Cool! Do you have a lot in com­mon with your char­ac­ters?

SO: I’d say Devon and I are pretty sim­i­lar. We’re both strong and deter­mined girls who aren’t afraid to go af­ter what we want.

IA: I’m a lit­tle dif­fer­ent than my char­ac­ter Mirabelle, but she was fun to play be­cause she’s the tough girl on the team.

J-14: The show’s based on a book se­ries by Alex Mor­gan. Which of those sto­ries are your fa­vorite?

SO: Mine is the first one Sav­ing

The Team be­cause that one is what the core of the se­ries is about. IA: I like Sab­o­tage Sea­son! It has a re­ally mys­te­ri­ous tone to it.

J-14: If you could recruit any celebrity to play for your team, who’d you pick?

SO: Brec Bassinger! She’d be a killer soc­cer player!

J-14: What’s the story be­hind the name of the soc­cer team, The Kicks?

IA: The school’s mas­cot is a kan­ga­roo, so the name was in­spired by that! If you haven’t seen a kan­ga­roo kick, look it up on YouTube — they’re fierce.

J-14: Which team­mate would you be BFFs with in real life?

SO: Emma, she’s unique and a blast to be around. Plus, I know she’d be there for me when I needed her.

Is­abella Acres Sixx Orange Emyri Crutch­field Sophia Mitri Schloss “We’re re­ally ex­cited for every­one to watch the show!” Sixx tells J-14.
