ABC News via Good Morning America spoke to Derek about his new film MAKE YOUR MOVE, out this Friday, April 18. In the article, Derek speaks about how he relates to his character ‘Donny’ as he falls in love with Aya. He says that now that he is older, he can appreciate love stories, like his own film! LOL!
“Hough added another benefit of growing and maturing is he finally in a place in his life where he can appreciate love stories, which is the theme of his new movie out Friday.
“It’s amazing how much clearer you get when you fall in love with somebody,” he told ABC News of how his life now relates to his character Donny.
Though he didn’t say whether there was a certain special lady in his life currently, he added, “love clarifies everything, makes it more enjoyable.”
“I see similarities in Donny [his character] and myself, just trying to figure out what it is you’re meant to do, following your passion,” he added.
Something that was different for the five-time “DWTS” champion was that acting in a movie isn’t live like it is in the ballroom or in some of the theater he has done in London.
He said he was pleasantly surprised after he felt he didn’t quite nail a take that he would get a second chance.
“With this film, I’d be really mad at myself and they’d say, ‘Derek it’s okay, we have more shots today,'” he added.”
