'Bunheads' star Kaitlyn Jenkins dishes about the Joffrey auditions and breaking the ballet body type mold

While "Bunheads" seemed like it was going to be a "Gilmore Girls"-esque meditation on small-town life with a dance studio at the center of the action, things got a little heavy when a main character died in the pilot. Now that we've reached Episode 4, the dancing is back front and center as the girls at Fanny's school audition for the Joffrey Ballet.Except there's not actually much dancing in "Money for Nothing," star Kaitlyn Jenkins tells Zap2it in a recent on-set interview. The 20-year-old actress who plays young dancer Boo Jordan promises that it'll be okay, because there's plenty of character development."You really get to see Boo and Sasha mature in this episode. You get to see Boo's passion and how dedicated she becomes to this -- kind of obsessed a little bit," Jenkins explains. "I think lots of girls will be able to relate to Boo especially in this episode because she's talking about,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/bunheads-star-kaitlyn-jenkins-dishes-about-the-joffrey-auditions-and-breaking-the-ballet-body-type-m.html

'Bunheads' Sutton Foster: 'Every 10 days or so I have a brain meltdown'

Zap2it: What was your first reaction when you read the "Bunheads" pilot script?Sutton Foster: What was strange was that when I read [Michelle's] lines, I could actually hear my voice. I was attracted to her because she is so lost. She is seeking meaning and purpose, and that was something that resonated with me. I wanted to figure that out with her, and I knew what that felt like. I could recognize myself in her.PICS: 'Bunheads' Season 1Zap2it: In a play, you know your character's entire journey. That's not true in TV. Is that a challenge?Sutton Foster: I am getting to know her more all the time. There's a bit of mystery, because you look at her and you wonder, "What's her story?" I mean, Michelle is just such a free-floater. She's not attached to anything, and she doesn't have roots, or want them. I'm curious about that, and we're peeling back the layers more... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/bunheads-sutton-foster-every-10-days-or-so-i-have-a-brain-meltdown.html

Bunheads: Should Michelle Consider Dating Grant?

Thus far in its brief run, Bunheads has been defined by grief and sadness, particularly Michelle's uncertainty about the next step in her life now that Hubbell is gone. Alone in the world and lacking direction, she's kind of flailing about right now, stuck in a town where she's "the stripper from Tahoe" and living in a guest house. In the most recent episode, though, she met someone that could end up playing a major role in her adaptation into Paradise life, but the major question going forward is: should she let him play that role? The introduction of wealthy businessman Grant might have had all the makings of a syrupy meet-cute, but it ended up being one of my favorite parts of "Inherit the Wind", the most recent episode of Bunheads . Their obvious chemistry and the lived-in feel of their conversation made them seem quite compatible, like they got each other from the word "go". If nothing else, having him become more involved in her life will make for entertaining television, giving Michelle another Paradise resident to bounce off of and someone that understands her plight as an out-of-towner. And quite frankly, getting involved in another relationship could help Michelle heal her broken heart that came from Hubbell passing away. Though she only (really) knew Hubbell for a couple of days, his death made a tremendous impact on her and since she doesn't have anyone else to lean on right now, maybe Grant can serve multiple purposes. He can give her a foothold in town, a friendship to count on and an ear to listen, while also keeping her mind (and heart) to the love out there in the world.
