HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Stars) 2017/04/18 – “It was a very strange show to make,” says Famous In Love star Carter Jenkins. “It’s about the making of a movie. So, we are on the set of Famous In Love while we are on set of Locked, which is the movie that we are making in the show. So there were times where hair and makeup would come and do last looks. The director would call action. Then hair and makeup would come and do last looks. And then the director would call action. It’s like Inception, going deeper into this show. It was confusing at times.”

There’s nothing you can do to prepare for that. It’s hard for everyone in your life because fame is funny thing. It does distort reality.”
