Exclusive: Jillian Rose Reed Talks Season 2 of “Awkward”

June 27, 2012


The hilarious “Awkward” returns to MTV tomorrow night and we cannot wait to see what happens.

We chatted with Jillian Rose Reed who plays Tamara to find out just what is in store for this new season.

How will season 2 be different from season 1? We spent season 1 introducing you to the characters. Now that we’re in season 2, you’ll get to see a lot more from each character. More about their lives and more story lines from all of us. Each character grows.

What can we expect with your character? A lot more sass and funny words! Tamara grows a bit of a backbone this season in terms of her love life. She stands up to Ricky Schwartz more than last year, but in a very comedic way. I go to a bit of a crazy place!

Everyone on the cast seems to get along well. What’s a typical day on set like? Any pranks? We’re like a big family!! There’s a lot of pranks. The boys love to do the pranking and it’s usually on me! Last season they locked me in my trailer and this season they filled it with over 70 balloons!!

Your co-star Ashley Rickards got “Punk’d” recently. What other castmate would you love to see get punk’d? I would love to see Brett and Beau get Punk’d! Someone needs to get them back for everything they do to me!!

The show has such a great fanbase. Any cool fan stories? We have the best fans in the world!! I had one fan and her mom chase me down in a mall in Atlanta, that was super funny!! I loved her enthusiasm!

What has been your favorite moment so far, from being on “Awkward.” I have a scene where I get to do some “dancing”. You’ll have to wait and see what I mean by that….but it was my favorite scene to shoot this season.

What is the main reason you’d tell fans to tune into season 2? The cute boys, obviously!!! But in all seriousness, this season will be great. There’s so much drama with the boys, I think fans are going to go crazy choosing between Matty and Jake!!

Tune in to season 2 of “Awkward” on June 28 at 10:30pm on MTV.
