While the acrobatics on the show “Make It Or Break It” are done by doubles, a lot of the choreography falls on the actresses. “Scenes where it’s us working out in the gym, that’s us working out.” Loren said in addition to attending boot-camp style training with yoga, she also trains with the cast.
After her time on “Make It Or Break It,” she said, “People think there’s like a project already lined up for me, but there’s not. You have to go back to the drawing board and start auditioning again. So that’s what I’m doing – auditioning.”
Josie Loren said on Facebook, “I’ve always been a lover of the arts. It doesn’t matter what it is – music, dance, theatre, photography – if it’s a means to express yourself, it has my attention. I like to make people smile whether it’s through my philanthropic work or with a random act of kindness.”
She said in a different interview, “There are times in my life when I haven’t been happy. Sometimes it’s not even physical, it’s something else. The key is identifying why you’re unhappy and doing whatever you can to fix it in a healthy way. It’s not about being the skinniest; it’s about your well-being.”
Josie Loren resides in Los Angeles.
