Hi Luke! How much fun did you have shooting Cloud 9?
I had an absolute blast filming Cloud 9 in the snowy mountains of Park City, Utah. It was amazing! Everyone in the cast and crew got along really well. We had an absolute ball.
How would you describe the movie?
Cloud 9 is a really fun movie set in the competitive world of snowboarding. It is a heartwarming tale that’s really romantic and sporty. It’s also an encouraging movie about facing your fears.
What can you tell us about your character in the movie?
My character’s name is Will Cloud – and he changes a lot throughout the movie. At the beginning of the story, Will is down in the dumps. He’s not really excited about anything. He’s not depressed, but he’s not his old, happy and confident self.
What happened to him?
Will was an up-and-coming snowboarding champion, but he got badly hurt in a snowboarding accident. The accident ended his career in competitive snowboarding, which was his lifelong dream and passion.

Where do we first meet Will in the movie?
At the start of the movie, we see Will helping his mother at her dog-grooming spa. He’s not snowboarding any more, but that changes when he meets a girl called Kayla [played by Liv & Maddie star Dove Cameron].
What happens when Will meets Kayla?
Kayla gives Will a confidence boost. She encourages him to face his fears. She makes him join a snowboarding team so that he can fulfill what he’s passionate about again.
