Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam on TV2

7:30pm Saturday, October 16 on TV2

Don’t miss the stunning sequel to Camp Rock starring teen sensations The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato.

Mitchie, Shane, Jason, Nate and their friends return to Camp Rock for another summer of music and fun. This time around, producer, Kevin Lafferty, told Disney he was adamant Nick Jonas’ character, Nate, would spend more time in front of the camera. “When it came time to start to playing Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, everybody realised that it was going to be crucial to have more for Nick to do,” he says.

And director, Paul Hoen, agreed: “I think when Nick walked on to the set, I thought wow, it’s like he’s a whole new guy. He really impressed me with his acting this time.”

For Nick, having more screen time was hugely exciting, but also a natural progression. “After we shot [Camp Rock], a lot changed in our careers, but to have a more predominant role in this one is so great. I’m just thankful they let [me and my brothers] be in the second one.”

With Nick and his brothers now seasoned actors, starring in a television series and Camp Rock, they were able to have a little more fun filming the sequel. “We learned a lot while shooting the [The Jonas Brothers], and being here again to shoot Camp Rock 2, we feel a little more comfortable in our own skin as actors,” says Nick.

“Shooting a TV show and being on the set of a movie are all so different. They each have their things that we love and that we would not trade for the world,” he continues.

Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam opens a whole new can of worms for the Rockers and their fellow performers as they soon learn a new state-of-the-art performance camp, Camp Star, has opened across the lake and lured away many of Camp Rock instructors and campers.

However, the arrival of Camp Star spells the beginning of a summer romance for Nick’s character Nate, and he couldn’t be happier.

“I think the fun part about my storyline is that it’s got that kind of Romeo & Juliette feel to it…it’s kind of a forbidden romance that ends up happening,” says Nick. “It’s a cute story and I think the songs that go along with it make it even better.”
