Ciara Bravo stars as Katie Knight on Big Time Rush, which means she’s got the real scoop on your fave BTR boys. Read on to find out what it’s really like to play Kendall Schmidt’s little sister on TV, why she keeps getting stuck in vents, and what BTR guest star Russell Brand is really like!
J-14: Can you tell us about your character, Katie? Are you anything like her in real life?
Ciara Bravo: My character is very sarcastic and conniving. She is great at thinking up a plan on the spot, but she also has a sweet side to her — she does have feelings, which can be very hard to believe sometimes, especially for her brother. I’d say she’s very different from me. I don’t think I could be as conniving as Katie. I would describe myself, without trying to sound narcissistic, as a nice person. I love making friends and just being completely goofy. With my best friends around, I just go crazy. I’m talkative too!
J-14: What was your fave BTR episode so far?
Ciara: I love the pranks episode ["Big Time Pranks"] because all of the crazy stuff we had to do. For example, when I had to spray the silly string, I was flopping down from a vent and just like going completely crazy with it. I love Big Time Rush because every day on set, something new happens and you’re just like, ‘Bever before would this ever happen!’ In the “Robin and Hoodie” episode, I was dropping from vents again and from a locker. I’m always popping out of something — a duffle bag in one episode or from a vent or a trash can [in another]. I’ve done it all.
