Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland stars with real-life boyfriend Matt Prokop in Geek Charming, airing Friday on the Disney Channel. For her, being a geek is “when you have a passion for something that’s quirky.” The actress, 20, says she geeks out for Golden Age movie musicals. Her faves: Singin’ in the Rain and Gigi.
Kimberly Perry was 15 when she started a band with her brothers — 10-year-old Reid and 8-year-old Neil — as roadies. Now, 13 years later as The Band Perry, they’re still together and up for five Country Music Association Awards Wednesday. Their mother is a roadie of sorts these days, making sure everyone stays civil: “We’re all in our 20s now, so we try to be mature and call it ‘discussions,’ not disagreements,” Kimberly Perry quips. “Our mother plays referee and we have boxing gloves stored in the bays of our bus, so we get along just fine. Sometimes after a few punches.”
