Abigail admitted that nailing the dance scenes in the movie was the most challenging part of the role.

"I was like, 'Ugh, I want to be like Baby. I want to dance like that. But I’m the most uncoordinated human being on the face of the Earth, so it didn’t seem like a likely scenario for me," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I was terrified. I could, like, feel my heart racing so much. And then when I was up there and we held it, I was just like, ‘Ahhh! I did it. I’m here.'”

Sarah Hyland — who plays her big sister in the film — added: "I wanted to cry. When I saw Abby do the lift for the first time… I've known Abby since she was one, I was six. To see her conquer something like that is really amazing because I really do feel like a big sister to her, in real life as well as the film."

How sweet — we can't wait to watch!
