Young actress Kingston Foster is already on our radar as a rising star. At only eight years old, she’s already appeared as Joan Gladstone on the Netflix series Fuller House and as Young Katie in NBC’s Great News.
Most recently, Kingston appears as Zoey – the lead character Zed’s younger sister – in the Disney Channel Original Movie ZOMBIES, which premieres on Disney Channel on February 16.
Everly Mag: Tell us about your character Zoey in the movie ZOMBIES. How are you and Zoey alike? How are you different?
Kingston: Zoey is a little zombie who is really nice. She wants to be a cheerleader and have a dog, but zombies can’t do either. Zoey and I are alike because we have older brothers that we love! Zoey and I are different because I want to be a dancer and Zoey wants to be a cheerleader.
Everly Mag: What was your favorite part of filming ZOMBIES? What was the hardest part?
Kingston: My favorite part about filming Zombies was that it was in Toronto [Canada]. I got to work in a different country! The hardest part was having to wake up and put on make-up and a hot wig everyday.
Everly Mag: What’s a typical day like on the set?
Kingston: I’d get picked up by my driver, go to the location, and then into hair and make-up. I would go to my trailer while waiting to go to set. At set I would do blocking with all the other actors, usually Meg, Milo, or Trevor, and then we would film a scene. In between we would play games.
Everly Mag: What should viewers expect to see when they watch ZOMBIES?
Kingston: When watching ZOMBIES, viewers will see zombies, cheerleaders, and some amazing dancing!
Everly Mag: How would you describe your personality? What do you like to do outside of acting?
Kingston: I would describe my personality as outgoing, energetic, and kind. Outside of acting I like to dance. I also like to hang out with my friends.
Everly Mag: You also play Joan Gladstone on Netflix’s Fuller House. What was your favorite thing about filming Fuller House?
Kingston: My favorite thing about filming Fuller House was that the cast was really funny. They made me laugh so much!
Everly Mag: What’s your favorite acting project so far?
Kingston: My favorite acting project so far is Zombies. I got to dance, sing, and be a zombie. I loved all the people I got to work with.
Everly Mag: What advice do you have for kids who want to be actors?
Kingston: My advice for kids who want to be actors would be to focus, you can’t goof around, and you need to learn your lines! I learned that from my brother.
Watch Kingston as Zoey in the Disney Channel premiere of ZOMBIES on February 16th.
She also stars as Emerson in the upcoming film Emerson Heights – according to Kingston, Emerson “is so different from Zoey!”
