Aberdeen Centre served as the backdrop this week for a Disney made-for-TV movie starring power couple Sarah Hyland of Modern Family fame, and High School Musical 3's Matt Prokop.

Hyland and her real-life boyfriend Prokop are starring in Geek Charming, a coming-of-age movie which explores teen popularity and the social hierarchy of high school.

The movie was filming on Wednesday and Thursday around the musical fountain at Aberdeen Centre, which wasn't closed down for the photo shoot, therefore allowing fans to get relatively close to the heartthrobs.

The movie is based on the young adult novel Geek Charming by Robin Palmer.
