‘The Detour’: Get To Know Ashley Gerasimovich
Ashley Gerasimovich doesn’t get a lot of the humor in her new TBS series, THE DETOUR.

She’s only 12.

“But I think it’s a really funny show anyway,” she says.

The road-trip comedy — from executive producers Samantha Bee and Jason Jones — follows a family from upstate New York as they encounter an unbelievable string of comic setbacks and cooky characters while driving to a vacation in Ft. Lauderdale.

Ashley is the comedy’s breakout star, stealing almost ever scene she appears in.

The sixth grader, who attends public school in New York City, plays smart-mouthed tween, Delilah Parker.

“You are so quick to give up on pushing,” she reprimands her mother in one episode. “I guess that is why we weren’t born vaginally!”

Ashley is no stranger to adult language or innuendo. She previously played Louis C.K.’s youngest daughter on the FX comedy, LOUIE.

But when it was time to film a scene where her TV parents give the “sex talk” to Delilah and brother, Jared (Liam Carroll), Ashley’s real-life mom and dad were forced to do some quick explaining of their own.

“My mom and I did have short and deep talks,” she remembers. “They’re glad it’s done, but sooner than they expected.”

Happy Birthday to us!
We are celebrating 9 Years Online today! Who knew that when we started off as a blog we would be here today with a site that supports the young talents of the daytime soaps, several primetime shows, and a social media family full of talented young actors and models. We would not be here today without all of the support we have received over the years from the families, reps, and fans, and we would like to say thank-you to all of you.

This year to celebrate we have been busy working on a video project with many of the kids who are a part of the site and our social media family. We gave them a series of questions, and those who were able to participate chose which question(s) they would like to answer on video. Those were all put together to create this video below which we think turned out pretty great! It has been so much fun to see the variety of answers coming in, and we hope everyone will watch it below. You can also head on over to our YouTube to view the full versions of some of the videos sent in. Some have longer answers than we were able to include while others feature some very sweet messages to wish us a Happy 9 Years Online. Now for us to get working soon on our 10 Years Online, it's going to be big!

February Q&A Series - Ainsley Crouse




Ainsley Crouse is a young model and actress from the New York and Philadelphia area. She has recently been seen on QVC and in ads for Boscov's. To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Instagram.








1. How did you get started in the industry?

My mom did it when she was little like me and we decided to give it a try when I was about 4 years old. It is fun to spend time with my mom when we go into the city. My mom told me that she mailed my photos to people to see if they would want me to be a part of the agency. The agency is the one that tells me when there is an audition. I have an agent in Philadelphia who is Renee from Click models. My mom said that she is really nice. The agent in New York City is from Funny Face Today. (mom helped me remember those names). They send my mom messages and they tell her where we need to go. It is always exciting because we get to take the train or cabs.


2. What was your first day on set for QVC like?

QVC is so much fun and I get happy when my mom tells me I got another job there because they have nice workers and one time I even got a fluffy jacket and bear after appearing on TV. The first time I went there, I didn't realize that I would be on TV and when the job was over, people in the hallway told me that I did a great job and I didn't understand how they saw me. I thought that was funny. It is really neat to go home and see myself modeling or doing cool things on the big TV. I am also on their online store a lot.


3. Do you have a favorite segment that you have done for them?

My favorite time at QVC was the time we got to play with race car toys because I like them. I did a lot of the Christmas gift shows and they were all toys and I even got paid to play with toys. Another time that was really awesome was when I got to dress up like Elsa and Anna and have a pretend tea party.


4. How did you enjoy working for Maniere Accessories?

We had fun that day because the photographer is really fun and nice. (Elizabeth Pettey). She made me laugh a lot and the other girls I was with were really nice. Oh, and we got a big box of headbands to take home!


5. What is your time on set like shooting for Boscov's?

We love when we get a job at Boscov's because it is only 10 minutes from my house! And then we eat at Panera afterwards, where I always get the yummy macaroni and cheese, apple, and lemonade. The people at Boscov's are so kind. I met many friends there and even got to wear a bikini one time and it made my mom laugh because she doesn't let me wear bikinis at home. It was cool seeing me in the newspaper and catalogs and my grand dad was so proud to see me too. I worked there many times and hope to get a job there again soon.


6. How did you feel seeing yourself in Babiekins Magazine?

I love getting the magazines I am in because it is cool to see my photos in there. I am not sure what Babiekins Magazine is, but it looked cool and I also saw some of my other friends in there. My mom puts all of the magazines and catalogs that I have been in in a pink box on my bookshelf and then I like to show my friends when they come over to play. My mom said that Babiekins is one of her favorite magazines.


7. What is the best part of working for Vanity Fair Outlets?

I worked at the outlet place 2 times and each time was easy and it is close to my house. They had me wear a bunch of clothes and some of them were so pretty and my mom let me buy one of them because I loved it so much. I had a full page of just me on their website.


8. What is one of the funniest things to happen on set for one of your projects?

I did a photo shoot for a home place shop (Lowes Home Improvement) and I got to cover my fake dad in stickers, all over him. I even put them on his nostrils and in his ears. That was a fun day because there was a dog on set, too, and I love animals.


9. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with?

My friends that I have met always make me excited to work. Some of my model friends are also ones that I have playdates with. I also really like the photo people we have met because they like to make me smile and laugh.


10. Do you have a favorite project that you have worked on?

My favorite project would be when I filmed an episode of a TV show (Orange is the New Black) because I got to dress up and run around with a couple of other kids on a farm. There were chickens and cows and really pretty flowers. There was also a tree swing that went really high.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I really love modeling and acting, but definitely acting. I started taking acting classes because it would be fun to get better at it and hopefully, one day, be in a big movie or TV show like the ones I watch. Oh, and my favorite movies are Star Wars, all of them, Pippi Longstocking, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. If I don't become an actor, then I want to be an animal shelter worker.

I love the dresses and outfits that LuLu et GiGi and Couture does. I was invited to go to Los Angeles, California in October and walk 2 shows of hers for LA Style Fashion Week "LAFW".

At the same show I also met Disney child actress Ava Kolker from the Disney TV series Girl Meets World. She is also a well known movie actress. We are now very close friends and I stay at her home when I go to Los Angeles. The second show I did for LuLu et GiGi all the models wore these incredible head pieces by an Italian designer named Fiori Couture.

8. What was it like to be involved in the fashion show at the United Against Ebola Benefit?

MacDella Cooper is very passionate about her homeland in Liberia. She approached my mom and asked her if she would help her with this fundraiser. At the time this was the first fundraiser in New York, it was December 2014. My mom brought in Designer Bonnie Young and turned the show into more about children. We all wore Bonnie young dresses and had flowers on our feet and walked the runway barefoot. My mom called a lot of press people in and had my friend Frenie Arakoba to sing (she is a child Broadway star, and played Lavender in Matilda for 2 years). At this event I knew all the models because they were all the Bonnie young "dream team". I was very proud of my mom and all the hard work she did for such an important cause in Africa. Famous designer Dan Karen, as well as Sean Combs’ " Diddy" twin daughters, and Fatima who was a child model and now an actress, she is the voice of the cartoon Dora the Explorer.


9. How did you feel when you saw your image from your Max Eremine shoot featured on Vogue Italy?

When my mom and I saw my photos for Vogue Italia I was so excited and I think my mom cried. For a model these truly are the pivotal moments in your career.


10. Do you have any advice for youth looking to get started in modeling?

1. My advice is to always be nice to everyone. 2. Don't be a show off, kids and other models won't like you. 3. Don't take it personally if you don't get picked for a job. 4. Never be late to a job, and respect the client's clothes and their belongings. (Don't eat or jump around while wearing them.)


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I want to thank the people who work so hard for me and have mad me the success I am. Thank you to my agency & bookers at Generation Model Management. They have been representing me from the beginning when I was 6 years old. My acting manager Lisa at Calli company, Lisa Pettit who runs my website for the last 4.5 years, my model friends and their moms who keep me in mind when they spot a photo of me and post it so I can see it or pick up a poster of me at a store because they know I am waiting for one. I also want to thank my fans! They have been so good to me I keep and post all their artwork of me and I love how they show me so much support. I now have over 5200 followers on Instagram. Some that are very loyal have started fan pages, fan sites and they tell me I am their inspiration. I only want to inspire for the good and I thank them everyday for there unconditional support. Most of all I want to thank my mom Sunday Galiano-Porcelli. I never say thank you enough to her for all she has done for my career for the last 6 years. I know she works very she on my social networking, she travels around the world with me for my work, she organizes the thousands of photos of me and everything she does in some way is for me, my happiness, and the success for my future.

It was exciting but I was a little nervous since it was my first. But, I got the lead (female) role. It was a student film called "We Love Wren".


2. What was the best part of working on Philadelphia: The Great Experiment?

It was outside, a beautiful day, close to home and the best part - a late call time.


3. How did you enjoy working on your Montgomery County PSA?

Actually, it was not good to start. We were filming outside and there were tons of gnats. The crew kept spraying bug spray (which smelled awful) and it did not help. Then we did move inside a house. The director and crew were amazing and great to work with.


4. What was your time on set like filming Who the Bleep Did I Marry?

It was fun!! Everyone was so friendly. One scene was on a playground. It was a Spring scene and it started to snow while we were filming. Luckily everyone worked hard and we filmed the scene very quickly.


5. What was it like working on The Cookie Scout?

It was very interesting because all my scenes were shot on a bus. My director and her team were so amazing. She was a perfectionist which meant we shot each scene several ways. The end result was amazing!


6. How do you spent your time between takes while working on a project?

Eating - not kidding.


7. What was the experience like filming Billy on the Street?

Billy was so nice and funny. Had a blast. Wish I could say more but had to sign a NDA.


8. Do you have a favorite type of character to play?

Funny/comical, esp if I don't have to dress up.


9. What is the best part about seeing yourself on television?

It's weird and cool. To think about how many people are watching the show and seeing you is kinda neat.


10. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with?

Billy Eichner - from Billy On The Street.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Have also been in several theater productions - played Gretl (Sound of Music) when I was in 2nd grade. That was my first professional theater production. Loved playing the Lion in Wizard of Oz. I also study Tae Kwon Do (karate) and have a wonderful instructor. Currently a Blue Belt.

In the beginning it looked as though I would need to look like I was shot and crawling down a wet road while covered in blood. Due to the weather change the director decided to cut the scene.

February Q&A Series - Kristin Flynn





Kristin Flynn is a young actress from the New York and Philadelphia area. She has recently worked on a Montgomery County PSA and was seen in an episode of The Blacklist! To keep up to date make sure to visit our Facebook Page.







1. How did you get started in the industry?

A neighbor of ours was filming a promo video for the movie The Tooth Fairy. He knew we did plays so he asked us if we would be in the video. Since we had a great time we started to submit for student films and it grew from there.


2. What was the process like filming the Avenue X music video?

The process was similar to a movie but the difference would be the director would give us directions while filming since the music would be dubbed in.


3. What was working on your Montgomery County PSA like?

We started early in the day after a rain storm. It was hot and muggy with tons of gnats. We were constantly swatting the bugs when not filming. Once we moved in the house it was much better. The team was so nice to work with.


4. Do you do anything special to prepare for auditions?

If sides are sent a head of time then I study them and prepare at home. If nothing is given to me a head of time I just try to relax and have fun with it.


5. What was the experience like filming Monsters & Mysteries in America?

It was kinda creepy at first. The story line was about a girl named Tanna, who had a doppelganger haunting her. The part of Tanna was played by my sister Megan. I was her doppelganger. The makeup artist did an amazing job making me up. I also had to wear black contacts. It took a while to get used to seeing myself looking like that. Had fun playing in a creepy role, especially when I had to torment my sister.


6. What was your time on set like filming The Blacklist?

It was a very short day. Everyone was great! The production team was awesome and the shoot moved very smooth & quickly. Would have been great if I could have met James Spader, Maybe next time ;)


7. How did you feel seeing yourself in the episode?

It was really cool. When I went to school the next day some of m teachers and friends were talking about how they saw me on the show. One of my teachers told me it was his favorite show.


8. If you could work on any kind of project with your sisters what would it be?

I would like for it to be something positive. Maybe a movie that touched on serious issues kids our age are going through.


9. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with?

Might sound crazy, but I really enjoy working with my sisters.


10. What has been your favorite project to work on so far?

Even tough it was a very sad video, I would have to say the music video "Never Trust A Junkie" by Avenue X. The video showed how drug use can effect children and their future.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Also enjoy working in theater. Been performing on stage for years. I also have been studying Tae Kwon Do (karate) for years. Currently a brown belt and looking forward to getting my black belt.
