Miles Brown Interview

The actor sits down with Mark and Cristina to talk about being part of Cirque Du Soleil’s “One Night for ONE DROP,” which is a charity event that helps raise funds for water issues worldwide. Miles’ character tells the childhood story of this year’s artistic director Hassan El Hajjami. He admits he was very nervous taking on the role, but also had a lot of fun. The show will play in selected theaters on one night only, June 7th. Miles loved the show because he gets to dance and even got to fly 80 feet and do backflips in the air. After the interview, Miles shows off some of his dance moves for Home & Family. He is later surprised and gracious when the show presents him with a $1,000 check to go to the “One Night for ONE DROP” charity.
