16 LOVE starring Georgia’s own CHANDLER MASSEY

20120710-130726.jpg

The Arts Council, Inc. is proud to present 16 LOVE as part of its annual summer MOVIES ON THE GREEN Series. This silver-screen flick is for kids and family and will screen on Friday, July 13, 2012 at The Arts Council Smithgall Arts Center and is RATED- PG. The movie will start at dusk. Our gates will open at 7:30 with pre-movie activities for children. Tickets are $3 Members and Students; $5 Non-Member. For tickets call 770.534.2787 or visit www.TheArtsCouncil.net

Local heart-throb Chandler Massey will display his acting talents on screen in a starring role in 16 LOVE! Gates will open at 7:30PM and the movie will start at dusk.Yes, kids, teens and adults, it is time to get seriously excited. Tennis lovers, your summer tennis season just got a new boost! Ally “Smash” Mash (Lindsey Shaw from Ned’s De-Classified School Survival Guide, 10 Things I Hate About You and Pretty Little Liars) dominates all comers on the tennis court. She has no time for lazy heartthrob Farrell Gambles (Emmy-winning Chandler Massey from Days of Our Lives and One Tree Hill). Ally Mash may be 16 years old, but in tennis she’s, like, 50. She puts in more hours on the court than she does off it — her world exists between the carefully painted white lines of Junior Tennis. Farrell Gambles would rather play tennis on the Wii than in real life. But they don’t give out college scholarships for Wii tennis (at least not yet). Farrell lives in the real world – the one where some day you have to put down the remote and get a job. As cute as he may be, Farrell barely registers on tennis champion Ally’s radar gun. He’s too slow, too lazy, too… unpredictable. She has tournaments to win. She’s going pro soon. She doesn’t have time to mess around with boys and their teenage friends in their teenage world. But in a twist of fate, or rather a twist of ankle, Ally finds herself with plenty of time; time to worry about Katina Upranova, the Russian tennis star who was beating Ally when she hurt her ankle. Time to go through her hard-driving former tennis champion Dad’s rehab schedule of physical therapy and psychotherapy and aromatherapy or whatever it is he wants her to do. And time, lots of time, to coach none other than goof-off Farrell Gambles in his quest to qualify for the upcoming Open and secure a college scholarship.16 Love, released in January 2012, topped iTunes’ Sports Movies chart for several weeks.

Chandler Massey is an Emmy-winning actor, best known for his portrayal of Will Horton on the daytime soap opera, Days of our Lives. Chandler received the 2012 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. He was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, with his two younger siblings. He is the son of Lewis (former Secretary of State of Georgia) and Amy Massey and Grandson of Gainesville’s own Abit and Kayanne Massey. Chandler graduated from Norcross High School in May, 2009. While there, he was active in the Drama Club and took part in many of the school productions including playing a lead role in Little Shop of Horrors, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Guys and Dolls and How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Later that year, he moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA and pursue his dream of acting. In December 2009, after completing his first quarter at UCLA, Chandler auditioned for the role of “Will Horton” on NBC’s top-rated daytime drama, Days of Our Lives and won the role. Previously, he has appeared in episodes of One Tree Hill, Eastbound & Down and Army Wives. In 2010, Chandler landed a starring a role in his first feature film entitled 16-Love. The film released in January 2012. Chandler currently resides in Los Angeles. And where might Chandler keep his first Emmy? “I’m going to put it right on my pillow next to mine where I sleep so I can wake up in the morning and see it,” he said. Reminded that the pointy wings on the statue might not be something he’ll want to roll over on while sleeping, the actor replied, “Maybe I’ll drill a hole in it and wear it around on my neck like a chain.”
