WOODBURY - A new film out today in select New York City theaters and on demand showcases growing up in Great Neck. One of the stars of “Affluenza” sat down with News 12’s Elisa DiStefano to talk about the movie and shooting on Long Island.

Gregg Sulkin, of “Pretty Little Liars” and “Wizards of Waverly Place,” says they shot parts of the film on the North Shore of Long Island. The film is about a group of privileged teenagers enjoying the summer months in 2008. Sulkin says “Affluenza” focuses on the financial crisis and how the teens deal with that reality.

Sulkin grew up in London and says he had to work on his Long Island accent for the role. He adds that he spent some time checking out the homes on the North Shore and the neighborhood where the film is based.

For the full interview with Sulkin, head to Channel 612 and select News 12 Extra.
