Owen Asztalos from Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul {Interview}

This past weekend, we had the opportunity to meet Owen Asztalos, an eleven-year-old actor from Wyomissing, PA, who plays Rowley in the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul movie.

About Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul:

In DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL, based on the record-breaking book series, a family road trip to attend Meemaw’s 90th birthday party goes hilariously off course--thanks to Greg’s newest scheme to (finally!) become famous.

We are fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and were excited to meet one of the actors from the new film!

Our plan was to visit Wellington Square Bookshop in Exton for the Meet and Greet and have AK's book signed in the morning.

{Little did I know that my girls would be so excited to meet Owen, that they would beg their dad to go to Monkey Fish Toys for a Meet and Greet and LEGO build with him in the afternoon.}

AK brought her author signed copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.   We arrived early, so I ended up waiting in line while my husband took the girls over to a festival nearby in the square for a few minutes.

We posed for photos and asked Owen to sign her book.   His manager, Sarah Freymoyer, and her daughter Vivian (who is also an actor) passed out bracelets and business cards for autographs in case fans didn't bring a book.

I did something my usual introverted self wouldn't do.  I asked Owen if he would mind giving a little shout out for my blog. He graciously agreed.   

After we returned home for a bit, AK asked if she could go to the second Meet and Greet at Monkey Fish Toys.  She really wanted to stay for the LEGO build, so her dad agreed to bring her and AB.  It was a super hot day and the air quality was a Code Orange, so I decided to stay home because of my asthma.  

My girls posed for photos together this time (AB was too restless at the book store).  They really enjoyed hanging out with Owen and Vivian and building LEGO bricks.

My husband was even able to ask Owen a few questions on camera, which was a neat surprise!

It was a great experience for all of us! My girls are even more excited about watching Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul now playing in theaters!
