Are you as obsessed with Nickelodeon’s brand-new show, Ride, as NickALive! is?
To celebrate Nick's all-new show, Just Jared Jr. caught up with the cast and learned that as much as fans love what’s happening on screen — Horses, high school drama and much more — so much happens behind-the-scenes when the cameras aren’t rolling!
From unexpected moments that make it into the show to a Horse that literally picks your pockets, the cast gave JJJ behind-the scenes stories they’ve never told anyone before!
Kendra Leigh Timmins (“Kit”):
“I eventually got so used to the crazy fascinator (aka hair piece) on my head that I wore it on our lunch break and totally forgot it was there. I got so confused when people were giving me crazy looks.”
Rameet Rauli (“Anya”):
“I was so nervous to shoot the Big Ben destruction scene. It took two weeks to build and we had one take to do it. In the scene, you can see the panic and once it was knocked down, I giggled in relief thinking we cut. You can see me giggling in the scene, so embarrassing.”
Oliver Dench (“Will”):
“Sultan, the Horse that played Wayne, was so clever and rebellious. A few times we saw him mess with people. He would wait until his handler wasn’t paying attention, and then sneakily take their walkie-talkie out of his pocket and throw it in the mud. Sultan never got tired of that.”
Manuel Pacific (“Nav”):
“The scene where Will and Nav are having a competition in their room to see who can score the most points by dunking paper balls into the trash was very special. Not only because we were having incredible fun and it was one of the first scenes we ever shot, but because I improvised the line ‘Andrada Style.’ That line not only made it into the show but got written in for someone else later on.”
Alana Boden (“Elaine”):
“In the scene where Will and Elaine are talking before the competition, Oliver kept poking me in the back. If you watch closely at the end of the scene, I start to laugh!
Jonny Gray (“Josh”):
“My favorite scenes to film were when I was actually on a Horse. The fields we got to ride in were almost mystical, because Northern Ireland is so beautiful. The Horse I rode was also used in the movie War Horse, so I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was to have that opportunity. It really was an amazing experience.”
