Actor Woos Bird-Brained Co-Star

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For once, working with a flighty co-star didn’t ruffle actor Steve Valentine’s feathers.

Valentine, of Crossing Jordan fame, plays a magician in Wizards Of Waverly Place The Movie, premiering Friday (Aug. 28) on the Disney Channel.

His character accidentally changes his girlfriend into a parrot, which left Valentine working closely with a bird for the entire flick.

Ruby the parrot was perched on his shoulder the whole time, and the pair got so close Valentine found himself having full-on conversations with the bird.

He’d tell his parrot girlfriend she “looked lovely” and she’d squawk back, acknowledging their connection.

Valentine says Ruby was a classy lady and never once pooped on him while filming, though she did nibble on his ear out of fright during a scene where he ran with her through the forest.

While the duo have parted ways, Valentine hopes they can flock together again someday – if Ruby’s big-time agent will allow it.
