Rummler got the chance to chat with Connor Finnerty, actor, dancer, singer, and social media star! What doesn’t he do?! Connor dishes on everything from working with Annie LeBlanc to his favorite vine. We’re totally obsessed with him, so here’s your chance to get to know Connor!
Rummler: Connor, can you do a little intro for our Rummlers who may not know you yet, and tell them where they may have seen you?
Connor Finnerty: Hi! I’m Connor Finnerty. I was in a live commercial for The Greatest Showman. I worked with Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman. I did a Sketchers commercial with Meghan Trainor. I’ve also done a music video for Michael Bublé. That was directed by Derek Hough, and I also played Derek Hough’s younger self in that. That’s a little bit about where you could find me. I also have a social media following on Instagram and other platforms!
That all sounds so cool! We also saw you were recently in Annie LeBlanc’s promo video for Annie LeBling! How was that?
That was really cool. It was cool to be part of her first launch of her own brand. Her bracelets are really cool. It was my first time working with her. She’s a good friend of mine!
You also do vlogs. What’s your favorite part about doing Connorville on YouTube?
I just wanted to show all my fans what I do on the daily and take them into my world. They’ve asked a lot about that, so I said, “You know, I’m gonna do this.” And we wanted to come up with a catchy name, so we came up with Connorville instead of just calling it a vlog to make it more fun and appealing to my fans. I love doing that and showing everyone what I do. Some of it’s daily stuff, some of it’s events I went to. I don’t do a lot of YouTube so I thought I should get more active on that.
On top of all that, you’re also an amazing dancer! If you could dance with anyone, who would it be?
Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake. Huge role models of mine.
Time for a quick speed round! NorCal or SoCal?
NorCal is my home and SoCal is my second home. But I definitely like SoCal better because there’s a lot more to do.
Favorite FRIENDS character?
Favorite YouTuber to binge watch?
Either iJustine or Casey Neistat.
What is your phone background?
This cool ocean. I think it’s from Bora Bora or something. I don’t really know, but I really like it.
Who was the last person you texted?
My friend Taya and I said “Nothing much”
What’s the first thing you notice when you have a crush on someone?
The way they act around me. Or their eyes or smile.
Who’s your social media crush?
If you could say one thing to all the #Cayden shippers, what would it be?
We love you.
That’s the end of the speed round! If you’re sweating, we’re done.
What are you focusing on in your career right now?
My music. I have a song that just came out called “Power” on iTunes and Apple Music. I have another song called “A Million Degrees” that’s coming out mid to late August. I’m really excited about that! That’s what I’m looking forward to. I’m also working on putting out my content on YouTube and Instagram. And I’ll probably be having a music video for one of those songs that will be coming out! That’s what’s in the works.
Where can people follow you?
You can follow me on all social medias. Instagram, musical.ly (TikTok), and Twitter are all @connorfinnerty_. My Facebook and YouTube are Connor Finnerty. And if you want to add me on Snapchat, I’m @connergfinnerty.
And last but not least, spill some tea or pick a flavor!
I don’t really have any tea to spill right now, but my favorite tea to drink is either chai tea or honey milk boba tea.
Thank you so much, Connor!
Thank you so much!
