She was there with her co-star Robbie Jones signing mini footballs and supporting the athletes. She plays the very physical role of college student Marti Perkins, who was planning to get through Lancer University on her scholarship, go to law school, and leave Memphis and her hard-drinking mother behind. Instead her scholarship gets cancelled and her mother "forgets" to tell her.
Out of options, she finds herself fighting for a spot on the Hellcats -- Lancer's legendary cheer squad -- and for the scholarship that comes with it.
Plus, we took a bunch of pics of Aly at the Supergirl Jam. You can check them out, just below our exclusive interview. Finally, Aly and Robbie were kind enough to sign two mini footballs for us to giveaway. We're looking for one lucky fan! Scroll past the pictures and take our simple one-question quiz for your chance to score both signed mini footballs.
To get a sneak peek of the series, just go to the bottom of the page. Were you an athlete before? I definitely had a big dance background, hip-hop and free styling. That was basically taught to me over a span of two weeks. For all the tumbling I have an amazing stunt double who does anything with back flips and dangerous stunts because that should really be left to people who have done it for years and years and are professional.
I feel really good about it. You and your co-star Ashley Tisdale are both former Disney Channel series teen stars. Did that shared experience help you bond with her? Oh yeah, we definitely have some stories. We have a great time together. I see Raviv Ricky Ullman a little bit. We all keep in contact, but Raviv is the only one I see on a monthly basis. No, we are not dating. Me and Raviv never dated, which is really funny. How has it been working with her?
We got such a great connection. What do you think of the comparison? Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? A GLEE knock off?
Maybe if we were doing a show about glee clubs, but our show is not based on GLEE. We definitely have a lot of music based performances so I can see the comparison. And we have high energy and are charismatic as GLEE is, but when it come to the world that we are set in, it is very different. We are based in college and GLEE is high school -- this opens up more mature storylines, which will appeal to a wider demographic.
