Ariana Greenblatt The One and Only Ivan Interview

Ariana Greenblatt's Last Day on The One and Only Ivan Set Included an All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Truck


In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favourite celebs — from the last thing they texted to the last thing they binge-watched. This week, on-the-rise actress Ariana Greenblatt takes our call.

She's only been acting for five years, but Ariana Greenblatt has already starred in everything from fan-favourite Avengers: Infinity War to Disney Channel's Stuck in the Middle; however, she's only just getting started. Up next, she stars in The One and Only Ivan (based on the book of the same name), which was inspired by the true story of a gorilla that lived in a shopping mall for 27 years before finally being moved to a sanctuary. Ahead of the film's release on Disney+, we chatted with Ariana about everything from the last thing she took home from a set to the last piece of advice she received from a costar.

PS: What's the last thing you texted?
"Uggg. Why? Am I in trouble?" (Responding to my dad telling me to come downstairs.)

PS: What's the last thing you watched on Netflix?
Final Table.

PS: What's the last thing you ordered online?
Three pairs of Vans sneakers.

PS: What's the last photo on your camera roll?
It's a picture of a dog eating a treat. The dog's name is Norbert, and he's so cute.

PS: What was your last day on set of The One and Only Ivan like?
I ordered an ice cream truck for the cast and crew, all you can eat. It was glorious!


PS: What's the last thing you do before going to bed?
Watch YouTube on my computer and scroll through TikTok.

A box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts from my mom.

My character's clothes from Awake.

PS: What's the last piece of advice you received from a costar?
Gina Rodriguez has given me endless great advice, but one piece that stands out was: "Never take a role you don't believe in, that you feel is not inspiring or challenging as an actor. Hold out and fight for the ones you believe in."

PS: What's the last book you read?
The Giver by Lois Lowry.

PS: What's the last song or album you listened to?
[The] Valley Girl soundtrack and "What's the Story Morning Glory" by Oasis.

PS: What was your last workout?
I do Chloe Ting's workout most mornings.

The last audition I did was a taped audition because of quarantine, but it went really well and was fun to get back into the groove again!
