Beau Mirchoff at 22 years old, originated the role of Matty Mc Kibben, a jock with the face of a model and a hidden heart of gold, and whose love affair with Jenna is just one in the story bag.In this Farewell interview, Mirchoff, now 27, looks back on his time at Palos Verdes High-school.With work in the collections of Mo MA, the Whitney and the Met, Condo was commissioned by Kanye West to create artwork for his 2010 album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” Condo’s wife, Anna, filed for divorce in 2015. That explosive episode promises to answer the burning questions of who Jenna (Ashley Rickards) will choose – either her longtime secret crush, Matty (Beau Mirchoff), or Jake (Brett Davern), the guy who wants everyone to know he likes her – and who really wrote her that letter. I didn’t sleep with anyone in summer camp in the janitor’s closet, but I definitely can relate to Matty. You also may or may not find out who wrote the letter. Were you surprised with the choice that Jenna made, or do you think she made the right choice? MIRCHOFF: There’s a lot going on in the half-hour, that’s for sure. I hope that the next season takes off right where we left off and it doesn’t time jump. I know that all these characters are very personal to Lauren, so she knows them well. Having gotten to play this character for a season now, how do you see him? In the beginning of this season, he definitely wasn’t ready to do that. This is all new for Matty and he is developing, so that’s good to see. The stuff with his brother (played by Zachary Abel) was surprising. He’s never been in a relationship, or been this open about a girl before.
One day, you can be 100 percent certain that breaking up is the right thing to do.
You graduated high school when you were 15 — did you do that so you could act full-time?
Yeah, the labor laws and work permits as a minor are pretty complicated. So I just started going through my curriculum at school and began handing in stuff early.
is a darn good coming-of-age comedy in which Ashley Rickards plays Jenna, a high school wallflower who captures the attention of two good-looking nice guys. Rickards, 20, didn’t go to high school for very long (she graduated when she was 15), preferring instead to pursue acting and screenwriting.
She talked to Vulture about going to one very weird prom, why she considers herself a reverse Method actress, and where her dark streak comes from — and she means Gaspar Noé dark.
