1. What was your time on set like for American Girl?

I really liked working with American Girl, I actually photographed in the kitchen and I you know how just love cooking.


2. How did you enjoy shooting for Nevada Health Link?

It was exciting I felt like I was a stunt person. Even though I didn't really get to go down those stairs. But I wanted to!


3. What did it feel like to see your photo up on a billboard?

I was shocked! I didn't know that I was gonna be on a billboard. And my Mom stopped on the side of the freeway and said OMG that is you!

Olivia Trujillo has worked on multiple episodes of General Hospital. This year she has been seen for GAP, Target, and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram.








1. What was your time on set like filming Por Sofia?

I love being on set! Por Sofia was amazing. I love the culture behind the Latin films, meeting everyone with different Spanish dialects and learning about the heritages.


2. How did you prepare for your role?

I worked with PJ Jenkins before filming on martial art techniques; he was a state trooper before becoming an actor. I mean who can prepare you for seeing your father shoot your mother?


3. What was the best part of shooting for Sports Authority?

Hmmm the best part, aside from hanging out with my set family around a campfire? I would say meeting Senator Robert Hertzberg and discussing whom he was going to vote for and why.


4. Do you have a favorite print shoot you have done for Target this year?

Favorite wow that one is hard. I have been so fortunate with working so much this past year, I would have to say making the cover of the back to school issue was really cool.


5. What was the experience like doing an active wear shoot for Old Navy?

I love sports so anything active is so much fun! How do you call work being on a field all day doing what you love to do!


6. What was it like working with Elizabeth Banks on your Old Navy commercial?

Honestly I was in awe! One of my all time favorite movies is Invincible; so working with her on Old Navy was a dream come true. She is so kind, so petite and super, super funny! Watching her improv skills was inspiring.


7. How did you enjoy shooting for Honda?

Honda is always great! My very first commercial when I started was a Honda commercial. Whenever I get to work on Honda it always reminds me of my very commercial.


8. What was your time on set like shooting for GAP?

I was super excited when I booked Gap! This past year was really my first year doing print work.


9. How did you feel seeing your photos up in their stores?

No matter how many shoots you do there is nothing like walking into a store and seeing yourself HUGE!


10. What has been your favorite project to work on this year?

My favorite project this year...ohhhh so tough, but I am super excited about a new Netflix movie that is going to be released the early part of 2017.

It's New Years Eve!




Catelyn Scott is the older sister of Matthew and Nathan who played Tate on Days. She has worked for Spinmaster, VTech and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Instagram.









1. How did you enjoy shooting with Colette Cugno?

I LOVE shooting with Colette! It's been months since I've seen her and I still talk about her all the time. I like that she brings her puppets to the shoots. I thought it was HILARIOUS when her puppet was being naughty, and she put him on a time out!


2. What was your time on set like working for Cosamin?

Cosamin was my first major commercial and I had a blast! I worked with my pretend grandma Carol, and together we got to play with paint. We started the day in a studio with the paint, and then after lunch we had a long drive to the next location. I took a nap in the car, and I woke up ready to go when it was time to shoot again! At the second house we got to film outside in their huge backyard. There was another girl on set who I played with between takes, and she was lots of fun. Mom says I was a silly character and I kept the crew laughing. The directors said I did a great job, so I was very proud of myself :)


3. What was it like filming your VTech commercial?

I enjoyed the Vtech commercial because I got to play with toys and eat yummy food. They had a lady there who made tacos and smoothies, so that was awesome. I also made some new friends on set. I love when I get to work with other kids.


4. How did you enjoy shooting for Maisie Jayne?

Maisie Jayne was a crazy outdoor shoot because it was pouring rain! It was cold, but I still managed to have fun playing in the rain with new and old friends. The photographers brought clear umbrellas, so we could still twirl outside in our dresses without getting the clothes wet. I've done several shoots with Grow Lovely Photography and they always capture beautiful images with natural lighting.


5. What do you like about auditioning?

My favorite part of auditioning is definitely meeting new people and making people laugh with my silly personality. My least favorite part is LA traffic, yuck!


6. How did you like filming your video for Spinmaster?

The Spinmaster commercial was filmed at a home in LA with several other kids. I spent the day playing with new toys and eating pizza, so it was awesome! The directors also took our feedback about which toys we liked, so it was fun getting to be a toy expert for the day :)


7. What was the best part of working for Banzai?

The Banzai project was a blast because we got to play in a huge backyard with blow up water slides and bouncy houses. What's not to love? My older brother Caleb also worked with me on the project, so we got to swim together in between shots.


8. What was the experience like filming Letters to Katherine?

I filmed the short film Letters to Katherine with Hayley Orrantia, who is an actress from The Goldbergs. In addition to being an actress, she is also a singer with an amazing voice. She even let me play around on her guitar. Hayley was so sweet and I loved getting to spend the day with her. This was my first time learning lines and filming multiple scenes, but I was up for the challenge! I've been told short films take a long time to make, so I haven't seen it yet. I can't wait for it to be released!


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

I've really loved everyone I've worked with so far, but my absolute favorites would be my pretend grandma Carol from the Cosamin commercial, and Hayley from Letters to Katherine. Oh, and I also love working with Colette and her puppets!


10. What has been your favorite project to work on and why?

My favorite project was Banzai because it was pretty much a giant pool party! I hope to get to do that job again when the weather warms up :)


We'd like to thank Catelyn for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

It's Christmas!




Brooklyn Silzer plays the role of Emma on General Hospital. This year she was seen in the hallmark movie Christmas in Homestead, Code black, modeling for Discount Dance and more!! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Instagram, Twitter and keep checking back here at the site.








1. How did you enjoy working for Discount Dance? Do you have a favorite outfit you got to wear?

It has been so fun to work with them especially because this has been my first year in competitive dance! The crew is super sweet and love shooting for them!

I love all of the dance clothes but one of my favorite was a light pink and mint sparkly leotard & tutu!


2. How did you like filming The Storyteller?

I filmed this movie during my summer break in Indiana! It was my first lead and loved being able to share their experience with some of my General Hospital family! It was so beautiful in Indiana and can't wait for you see the feature next year!


3. What was it like working with your General Hospital co-stars on a different project?

So much fun! It was exciting because we were all playing different characters especially Constance Towers! She is pretty evil on General Hospital and in this movie you see a much sweeter side to our relationship. And Kristina was so kind and lovely to work with too- loved our scenes together. Also, our amazing Hair stylist Linda was with us and I loved spending so much time with everyone:)


4. What was your experience like working on Christmas in Homestead?

This was really a blessing because my family loves Hallmark Christmas movies and was so excited to be cast as a lead in one of their new Christmas movies! Such an amazing experience filming in this beautiful small town Dahlonega, Georgia! Everyone was wonderful to work with and we became a small family since we were on location for 23 days!


5. How did you like filming your episode of Code Black?

Loved it so much- I loved the script and couldn't wait to be able to drive a car for my scene!! It was for the Halloween episode and was so excited to wear the new Elena of Avalor costume- it was beautiful! My Grandma had to take me for a few of the days because my sister was working in Hawaii and it was so fun to share this part of my life with her! She is the best!!


6. What was it like working with Marcia Gay Harden?

Truly Amazing! She is one of the nicest, sweetest and most talented people you will meet. What an honor to work with such an amazing cast & show- still feel like pinching myself sometimes:)


7. How did you prepare for filming the scenes with Jason and Kelly where Emma learns Sam and Patrick broke up?

Well this is my most treasured work I have done and will never forget it. So much emotion and wanting our last big scenes together with Jason to go well and with Kelly. We all just went for it and I think it came out really good since my Mom and family still can't watch without crying!!!

8. How did you enjoy filming Patrick and Robin's wedding?

It was really bittersweet. I remember my Mom telling me to enjoy the last times all three of us would be together on this stage and trying to enjoy it all without crying all day. There were a lot of tears and still remember walking down the halls knowing that it will never be the same. I still miss working with Jason so much but so happy for him & we still talk and see each other- love both of them so much!


9. What was your last day on set for General Hospital like?

Well I am truly grateful that the show has found some fun & creative ways for me to visit! This is my home and would love to work there as long as hey will have me! This next year it will be 6 yrs- more than half my life!!!


10. How did it feel to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy at such a young age?

I still think it all has not set in. When people bring it up I start to realize more & more that it was such a huge compliment for me to even be considered with so much talent! I worked so hard for those scenes with Jason & it means so much to me that people felt my emotions and that it moved them- that was our goal! Loved that I shared the night with my sweet friend Nicolas and we will always remember running onstage together when the show won he Emmy! It was really the most magical night that I will always treasure:)


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I want to say thank you so much to everyone through the years for your support and kind words of encouragement. It has been a blessed year and excited for 2017❤

It's Christmas!




Eden McCoy plays the role of Josslyn Jacks on General Hospital. This year she has been seen on Game Shakers, in a music video for Maitre Gims and Sia, and more! To keep up to date make sure to like her page on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram.









1. What was the experience like filming a music video for Maitre Gims and Sia?

Shooting that video is one of the coolest things I've ever done! The location on the beach in Malibu was beyond gorgeous, and the director and crew were awesome. It was super fun to wear the Sia wig (I played Sia as a young girl), and the song for the video J'Te Pardonne is beautiful! This is the link to the video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QguoUKqFVo


2. How did you enjoy seeing yourself on Game Shakers?

I loved meeting and working with the Game Shakers cast on The Girl Power Awards episode - we worked together for a week and are all still good friends!! We had a blast on set and I think the episode turned out really funny! We were cracking up the whole time that Kel Mitchell was on. He is hilarious!


3. Do you have a favorite commercial you've gotten to work on?

I did a commercial for Exede Internet a few years ago, and I got to work with a basket full of kittens! They were so soft and cuddly - I could not believe how lucky I was to get that job and hold kittens all day!


4. What has it been like getting to work with Ingo Rademacher?

Ingo is a dream t.v. dad! Literally the nicest guy and a great actor, super fun and cute and he has an awesome real-life family. It's really easy and comfortable to play his daughter.


5. How do you like working with Ava and Grace Scarola?

They are the CUTEST babies ever!! Their personalities are so different from each other, and whenever I get to be on set with them I know it's going to be a fun day of filming! Picking them up and carrying them on screen is my favorite. They have a great acting future ahead of them!


6. What is it like filming with Chad Duell?

Chad is super professional and I'm so happy he plays my big brother. He is always prepared and he nails his scenes, and he brings out the best in the actors around him. I hope we have more scenes together in 2017!


7. How did you enjoy attending your first GH Fan Weekend?

I was thrilled to see how many incredible fans the show has! Everyone I met was really knowledgeable about the stories and the characters throughout the years, and it really touched my heart to see how big a part of their lives General Hospital is! It made me feel even more honored to play Josslyn and it inspired me to bring everything I have to the character, because I want to make the fans proud!


8. What's it like to be part of major storyline revolving around your character on a soap?

Josslyn's storyline about her kidney was really emotional for me - I loved my scenes with Laura (Carly) so much - she made me really comfortable when I had to fight with her or cry. And Chloe (Nelle) is just incredible - I love every scene I get to shoot with her. She's so beautiful and smart and a very powerful actress.


9. What was the experience like singing on the show?

I was SO nervous! Amazing Grace is a beautiful song but it is so sad, and then to sing it at a funeral made it even more emotional! Everyone on set was crying that day, and I was honored to be a part of the tribute to Morgan.


10. What has been your favorite scene to film this year?

I think the scene were I found out that Nelle was my kidney donor. I got to be in the scene with Maurice, Ingo, Laura, Chloe and Chad, so that was really special. It was beautifully written, and it actually didn't even feel like acting because in that moment everyone was so committed to their characters and to making Josslyn's discovery and reaction as real and heart-felt as possible. I am so blessed to work with these amazing people!

1. What was the first day on set for Y&R like?

Our first day on set was almost 5 years ago and it was the day "baby Johnny" was being born!! The set nurse who was wonderful put warm yogurt on the boys for the birth scene and the boys smiled through the whole thing!


2. How does it get decided who films which scenes?

Usually we switch back and fourth each episode but they love the episodes that they get to eat snacks and treats in so we definitely have to make sure they alternate those scenes!

They love the Halloween episode every year...lots of candy and lots of other kids to play with on set!


4. What is it like filming with Jason Thompson?

Jason is awesome with the boys! They definitely feel comfortable with him and he knows how to keep the scene going when the boys decide to add their own lines or things to scenes that aren't suppose to be there (which happens often with 4yr olds!) He's a natural with kids!


5. How do Ryan and Holden enjoy working with Sienna Mercuri?

Holden and Ryan Love their TV sissy! They go into each other's dressing rooms to play in between scenes!


6. What was it like filming with Sophie Pollono?

It's been awhile but she was a great little actress!!


7. What is it like working with Eric Braeden?

The boys know him as their tv grandpa! He's been doing this for years so he's great when the kids are on set!


8. Do the boys have a favorite set to film on?

They always ask if they get to go to the coffeehouse...they have figured out that scenes at the coffeehouse means sitting at a table eating yummy snacks!


9. Have Ryan and Holden been recognized in public at all for playing Johnny?

Actually yes a few times! Out to dinner twice and once we were in line for Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland and some women approached us and said they recognized them as Johnny and were shocked that there were two of them...they always thought it was just one child!


10. Do the boys have a favorite episode they've gotten to film this year?

Ryan says "My favorite was when I got to eat the Ketchup and hotdog with Jason (tv dad) and the days when Aly (Faith) is there and when I got to brush my teeth in the scene!" Holden said his favorite was "Being with Amelia (tv mom), the thanksgiving dinner when I ate turkey and when I ate all the chocolate"


Is there anything else you would like to add?

The boys wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season and thank you for all your support!!

1. How did you get into acting?

I started in a modeling agency in Cincinnati called Wings Model Management, to possibly start doing print work.

It's Christmas!




Caitlin Carmichael played the role of Emma on The Neighbors. This year she has been seen in The Night Visitor 2: Heather's Story and on Z Nation! To keep up to date make sure to like her page on Facebook follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram.









1. What was your experience like filming for The Neighbors?

Wow! That was so long ago! It was so fun to work with Max Charles again. We played brother and sister on Hot in Cleveland a few years before that. It was kind weird to go from playing his sister to playing his crush, though haha!! I had a blast in hair and makeup on The Neighbors for our Halloween episode. That was actually my real hair that they teased to make it zombie-fied. I also met one of my closest friends, Kyla-Drew Simmons, on set of that episode! It's always fun to meet and work with friends on set, especially in awesome Halloween costumes!


2. What was the best part of filming Operation: Neighborhood Watch!?

The best part of filming Operation: Neighborhood Watch are the friendships I've made with Tyree, Luke, and Jacob on set. I'm an only child, so it's really cool to have three sort-of "brothers!" I really hope the four of us can work together again. We got along so well, which made playing best friends much easier. We're basically family now.


3. What was it like working with Denise Richards?

She is so beautiful!!!! Denise was so nice to film with. She was very very personable. She told me all about how her daughters compete in horseback riding champion-ships and how she has given so many dogs an amazing family and home. I really look up to her!!


4. How did you enjoy filming with Tyree Brown?

Oh my... where do I start?? We have become such friends since set. Over the weeks we filmed, we became literally inseparable, on and off set. We would even carpool to set together so we could watch movies in the car. On set, they gave us phones to take behind the scenes pictures and after one day we had taken so many goofy pictures of each other that there was no memory left on our phones! I'm super bummed that he and his family moved to Sacramento, but it's so fun when they come down to visit us. My mom and I are planning to road-trip to see them soon!!


5. How did you feel returning as Bridget in Wiener Dog Internationals?

Julian Feder and I became best friends while filming Wiener Dog Nationals when we were eight. So, I'm really lucky to have gotten to film another movie with my best friend! We didn't even have to try to act like brother and sister. We got to eat tons of candy and jump on lots of hotel beds, play dress-up,and hang out with puppies! Couldn't of asked for a better summer.


6. What was it like working on Grace Stirs Up Success?

Grace Stirs Up Success was one of the most amazing set experiences I've ever had. We filmed for five weeks in Europe. I was exposed to so many new cultures, traditions, foods, and languages. I will forever be grateful for the friendships and memories I made. We traveled to Budapest, Vienna, and Rome. Olivia Rodrigo (Bizaardvark), Notlim Taylor (Marlon on NBC), Eloise Webb (Cinderella), and I became sisters ♥


7. What was your experience like working on the movie Martyrs?

You have no idea how much I admire Troian Bellisario. Can't believe she just got married!!!!! I truly believe booking Martyrs was God's way of telling me to watch Pretty Little Liars. It was awesome to hang with with Troian with all her prosthetics on during breaks. I love filming and watching horror so Martyrs was a super fascinating set for me.


8. How do you prepare yourself to film such dark scary emotional scenes?

I love LOVE LOOOVVVEEE horror movies. I started acting in scary movies when I was 4. I've grown up always knowing all of the behind the scenes tricks and understanding all the effects were just pretend. Therefore it's easy to just act scared. It's really fun to watch how a crew plays tricks with their special effects.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your Q&A!! Happy Holidays!! XOXOX ♥ ♥

This is the one to never forget! I love working on American Horror Story. Ryan Murphy and the writers are just brilliant! I'm so grateful to have a part of that show. I played Wren, one of Lady Gaga's (The Countess) vampire children who decided to get out of such mental and physical trap in which she was locked up in the Hotel. It was such an honor to have worked with so many famous and talented actors such as Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters...and many more.


5. How did you enjoy working with Sarah Paulson?

It was something special. I've watched her in so many shows and movies and it was such incredible challenge to work with her. And don't forget that she was the one who played critical role in Wren's decision to quit...


6. Did you do anything special to prepare for your role?

I run my lines over; I talk with directors about characters. And then I put my input in and make them alive.


7. Do you have a favorite scene that you did?

I have many but two are very special: when The Countess (Lady Gaga) breaks the window to get Wren free and when Wren says goodbye to John (Wes Bentley). Both are very emotional and powerful scenes.


8. What was it like attending the premiere for American Horror Story?

It was a big honor to stand together with all the wonderful cast and creators on the same red carpet. Being reunited with all these people who have literally become like a family is the best feeling ever!


9. Have you been recognized in public at all for AHS or another role?

Yes, I have! It's been quite fun to meet the fans of the shows I've been in. I love my fans!


10. Can you tell us anything about your upcoming part in An American Girl Story movie?

I play Carolyn Larkin, one of Maryellen's older sisters. The movie is about coming together as a family, helping others, and celebrating Christmas providing support to whom needs it the most. My character Carolyn is a fashionista and a diva. She is polite to others but snarky and very competitive to her little sister Maryellen. My best memory about filming this movie is a special Christmas spirit on the set despite very hot days in LA at the time. Jamie Pachino wrote the story beautifully and director Valerie Weiss did such an amazing job bringing our story to life.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you to all of my fans for supporting me! I could not have done all this without you! Thank you Star-Kidz for this interview!


Best,

Jessica

Tate Berney played the role of AJ Chandler on All My Children. This year he has been seen on Henry Danger, the Kids Choice Sports Awards and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, like his page on Facebook, follow him on Twitter and follow him on Instagram.









1. What was your time on set like filming your NBA 2K17 commercial?

Filming the NBA 2K17 commercial was very cool! I got to totally be myself and ride my bike. It's fun doing what you love!


2. What was it like seeing it on TV for the first time?

I wasn't sure how they were going to put the whole thing together so it was fun seeing that it started with me!


3. How did you enjoy attending the Young Entertainer Awards?

The Young Entertainer Awards was really fun. Such a great experience! The awards show was really well put together AND my family and I got to go to Universal Studios after!


4. What did it feel like to win?

It was awesome to win. Being up against so many other great young actors, it was an honor to be chosen for the award film Insidious Chapter 3.


5. How did you prepare your acceptance speech?

I didn't really prepare anything because I didn't know I would win. Before I went to the event though I just kind of thought of who I would thank if might win.


6. What was your shoot for Riddell like?

Riddell was fun and easy because I love football and am used to wearing football gear and playing. They seemed really happy with me because I knew what I was doing and they could tell I was an athlete.


7. How did you like going to the Kids Choice Sports Awards and being slimed?

The KCS Awards was great! I have ALWAYS wanted to be slimed...and it finally happened! I got to meet Steph Curry and Klay Thompson!


8. Do you prefer commercials, print, or TV and why?

I actually like all of it. They are all so different. Print is easy and fun! Commercials are really fun too, just much harder to book. Both commercials and print are easier because there are no lines to learn. I really like TV and Film because even though its more work to learn the lines, and prepare for the scenes etc. it is so awesome to work with the cast and crew over time and become close to everyone. Then at the end to get see the finished movie or tv show and see how it all comes together its very rewarding.


9. What was it like getting together with your fellow AMC Kids this past summer?

I loved seeing everyone. My mom still talks to their moms, and I sometimes see what the girls on doing on IG and stuff, but it was cool to actually see everyone in person and catch up!


10. What else have you been up to this year?

I filmed an episode of Henry Danger that just aired a couple of weeks ago. It is filmed on the same lot as Days of Our Lives, so when my mom and I were walking back to the dressing room we saw Jordi Vilasuso driving out in his car, we were so happy to get to see him and catch up. He could not believe how big I was. Then at the end of the day we went over and saw some of the crew, that were also worked on AMC. I also just filmed a commercial for Orkin as a log roller boy. It was hard work because we had to be hooked up to wires and everything, but I think its going to turn out awesome! Cant wait to see it! I also just finished working on a show called "The It Girls" It will be on YouTube!


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I really hope that everyone has a Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!

It was cool to be asked to be there but I was really nervous. I had a couple funny scenes that were cut but I heard we were lucky it aired at all!


2. What was the experience like filming with John Cena?

He is so nice. He is so big and friendly. I actually got a little shy around him.


3. What was your time on set like filming Upended?

That was my first role and I loved it. The cast was amazing, supportive and helpful. The best coaching I ever got was from Amy Landecker who played my mom in the movie. I got to hang out with Ian Harvey a lot too. We hula hooped together. The whole experience was so much fun. I still keep in touch with them and director Tessa Blake when I can. I was really lucky they chose me for the role.


4. How did you react when you found out you were cast to play Danny?

I had a feeling since Mark had taken me back to meet Frank during my audition but my mom said that I shouldn't get my hopes up. I got lucky that they liked my acting and look as Danny and when they hired me I was jumping around so excited. I love working there still.


5. What has the experience been like working on General Hospital?

It has been wonderful. I'm hoping they don't age the character for awhile. I'd like to stay there forever but I know that is probably not going to happen. I'll be disappointed when they change the character but I'm enjoying it now. I love the cast. My GH parents, grandmother and all the kids I have met. I just love everything about it.


6. Whats it like getting to work with Kelly Monaco?

I can't believe I get to work with her. She is really smart and helps me a lot. She is sweet and beautiful. I couldn't have a better tv mom.


7. How do you enjoy filming with Nancy Lee Grahn?

She is so funny and nice. She is fun to work with. She seems really young to be a grandma.


8. What is the best part of working with Billy Miller?

I have only met him a couple times but he is super cool. Last time we filmed together we talked about football and he gave me a soft football with a bear inside. I sleep with it now.


9. Is there anyone you would like to work with that you haven't gotten to yet?

I'd love to work with my sister Devin sometime. It would be cool to meet Nicolas Bechtel and work with him sometime.


10. What is your favorite scene that you have filmed this year?

The GH wedding scene was my favorite. I got to meet a bunch of people and have cake. Plus I got to meet and spend the day with Hudson West and we get along really well.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Just want to thank you for including me in this. I had fun answering your questions.

1. What was the best part of working on your episode of About A Boy?

Singing the silly song and getting to meet everyone.


2. What was your time on set like filming your Subaru commercial?

I loved it. It took 6 days and we went everywhere. The crew was super awesome and I had so much fun getting to drive the car. But I got bored because I drove around in circles so long and I fell asleep and the director had to lay down in the back of the car and talk to me to keep me awake.


3. What was the casting process like for Days?

I loved going to the office because they have a picture of Jensen Eckles on the wall because he used to be on the show. The process was pretty easy. Marnie is an awesome casing director. She was super nice and fun.


4. What has your experience been like working on the show?

It's been super great. Everyone is super nice and I have lots of fun. It's my first time working on a project where they move fast and don't do a million takes. I like that.


5. How do you like working with Nadia Bjorlin?

Nadia is so nice. She's super fun. I like hanging out with her backstage too. I love practicing with her too.


6. What is it like filming with Arianne Zucker?

Arianna is super fun to work with she always gives me big hugs. I love seeing her.


7. What was it like meeting Shawn Christian?

It was super cool to finally get to meet my dad because when I first started he had just died. I wanted to meet him the whole time and I finally got it. It was great.


8. Is there anyone in the cast you hope to get a chance to film with?

Well in the funeral scenes I got to film with almost everyone, but I didn't get to film much with my sister Melanie much and I wanted to do more with her. I also really want to work with Patrika Darbo, my grandma. I've met her several times and love her.


9. Do you have a favorite scene that has aired this year?

The ice cream scene with Nicole. I love ice cream and loved getting to eat it. Plus it was just a fun scene. We laughed a lot.


10. Can you tell us anything about your upcoming film The Nanny?

It's a paranormal thriller that was a lot of fun to shoot. It's about my mom and my sister and me and the new nanny my mom hires that isn't exactly what you think she is. It was creepy fun being part of it!


Is there anything else you would like to add?

My favorite things about acting are working with new people, going new places, and of course craft services. I had lots of fun filming The Bay this last week for Amazon with other soap opera friends.

Scarlett Fernandez plays the role of Charlotte Cassadine on General Hospital. She has also filmed the pilot for Broken, done a commercial for Ross, and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram.










1. How did you get started acting?

I started as a baby, so I don't remember a lot, but as I got older, I would go to a lot of auditions with my older sister Reagan. When I saw her in commercials and on TV, I really wanted to do it.


2. What was your time on set like filming Broken?

I loved filming the pilot, Broken. I flew to Texas, made a lot of new friends, got to use fake blood in my mouth, and worked with some famous actors.


3. What was the best part of working on your commercial for Ross?

The best part of the Ross commercial was being able to jump on the trampolines, because I'm a gymnast!


4. How did you react when you found out you booked General Hospital?

"WOOOOOHOOOO"...Then I called my Daddy to tell him!


5. What has your experience been like working on the soap so far?

I love working on General Hospital! Everyone has been really nice and everyone has helped me with every single thing I need to improve.


6. How do you like working with Bree Williamson?

Working with Bree is great. We have fun. She was really helpful when I was new, and I like that we look alike. She has big eyes like me.


7. What is it like filming with Matt Cohen?

Filming with Matt is fun. He is so nice every time I see him. I like that he is fighting for Charlotte. Did you see Griffin fight Valentin?


8. What is the best part of filming with Finola Hughes?

Finola Hughes is one of the nicest people on set. She always plays funs things with me and treats me like one of her own kids.


9. Is there anyone in the cast you hope to have a chance to work with?


I really hope I get to do some scenes with Eden McCoy.


10. Do you have a favorite scene that you have done?

My favorite scene at GH was the tantrum I got to do at the Halloween Party in Metro Court. I like the scenes where I eat too. Jimmy in props always gets me the best treats!

Tyree Brown played the role of Jabbar on Parenthood. This year he has been seen on Criminal Minds, heard in an episode of Mack & Moxy, and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, follow him on Twitter and follow him on Instagram.









1. What was it like working with Denise Richards on Operation: Neighborhood Watch!?

Denise was really nice and very professional. She was sweet to all of the kids and even bought food for everybody one day.


2. What was the best part of filming with Caittin Carmichael?

Caitlin is one of my good friends now because she is so real, funny, always happy and just a really good person to be around. She is a really good actress too. I've seen her in other movies and she can act! Her mom and her are the best.


3. How did you film the scene with the lion?

They brought the lion on set in a special cage and filmed the lion separately because of rules with animals and filming. We got to see the lion up close in his cage though and that was really cool. He was beautiful.


4. What was it like working on Camp Cool Kids?

Camp Cool Kids was one of best times I have had filming. The whole cast and all the crew members were wonderful. The weather in Louisiana was hot so that made some of the days harder to film but it was really pretty there also. We got to swim in a lake for some of the scenes and it was like we were at summer camp instead of actually filming a movie. I made some close friends on the set of this movie also. That is always one of the best things about working.


5. How did you enjoying doing your voice over for Ice Age The Great Egg-Scapade?

My voiceover job for The Great Egg-Escapade was very quick since it was the background characters for that episode. I think i was in the booth for no more than 10 minutes. It was fun though.


6. How different was you to film for Criminal Minds versus Parenthood?

Criminal Minds was another great job I had. My scene where I'm in the car with my tv father was pretty intense since I had to watch him get shot. I felt very privileged to have played Young Derek Morgan for that one episode. It was very different from Parenthood just because I was working with actors I had never worked with and it was more dramatic than Parenthood.


7. What was your time on set like filming your episode?

My time on set seemed to go by pretty fast. We filmed one day on the lot and the next day was on location. Those two days flew by. I would have loved to have worked more days.


8. How did you prepare for your role?

I always just learn my lines first and then try to see myself in the scene. My mom will help me understand the scene if it's more complicated.


9. Do you have a favorite cast member that you got to meet?

I unfortunately did not get to meet Shemar Moore since my scenes were not filmed with him, but I did get to meet the awesome Thomas Gibson, who actually directed the episode which was way cool. Also met Joe Mantegna who plays David Rossi on the show and he was so nice. I would have LOVED to have met Danny Glover, who played my grandfather in the episode but he was not in any of my scenes either. I will hopefully meet him one day.


10. What do you miss most about Parenthood?

What I miss most about Parenthood is the cast and crew. They were and still are really a family to me. I spent half of my childhood with them. I miss everything about Parenthood and what it stands for. I am hoping on a Parenthood reunion of some sort in the future. You gotta keep dreaming!

Declan Mueller played the role of Joseph Gaffigan in season two of The Jim Gaffigan Show. He has also worked for GAP, Toys R Us and more! To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.









1. How did Declan get started in the industry?

When Declan (and Dylan, for that matter) was a baby, we'd be complimented whenever we'd go anywhere and we knew he had the look and temperament to work if we wanted to but we didn't bother pursuing it. Then one day, Declan was out with his mother and was complimented by someone with intimate knowledge of the industry and pretty much told us what to do and how it would go. Five days later, he was with the Gap people.


2. What was his first booking?

Declan's first booking was when he was asked to be the holiday 2013 Gap baby. Leading up to Christmas that year, he was everywhere and it was such a whirlwind. It was very exciting and humbling to be chosen to represent such a major brand in such a high-profile, iconic capacity.





3. What was Declan's time on set like shooting for Toys R Us?

Toys R Us was unique in that it was the first time that Declan had shot with an adult model. Declan looked at me with some priceless expressions when he was introduced to his "father" at the set.


4. How did your family react to seeing him in the circular?

Every time we've seen something he's done, it's just been so humbling and flattering. I'm not sure anything compares to that first Gap campaign because it was all so brand new to us and we hadn't even told anyone about it. There was one time when my mother went to The Children's Place to buy something for her grandchildren and she didn't realize until she got home that Declan's picture was on the coupon that the cashier had put in her shopping bag. Stuff like that is really fun and memorable.


5. What was the best part of Declan's shoot for GAP?

It was just all so thrilling. We'd never done anything before; the boys had never even had their portraits taken! Then, all of a sudden, we find ourselves at this big-time studio with big-time photographers shooting a big-time campaign for a big-time brand. It was never a goal nor a plan.





6. How did he enjoy shooting for Adidas?

Adidas was another shoot that was really neat as it was the first time Declan had ever shot outside of a studio before. He was on location; the beach at Coney Island in Brooklyn. He was originally slated for only up to two hours, but he was doing so well that they kept him for six hours to do some other things with him that they hadn't even originally planned for. Again, it was very exciting and flattering to be chosen as the representative for such a high-profile, major brand.


7. What was the experience like for Declan to be on The Jim Gaffigan Show?

It's hard to believe that there could be a better experience or environment in the industry than the one created and fostered by the folks at The Jim Gaffigan Show. It's a smart, funny show made by smart, funny people. Everyone, from the top down, was so kind and made us feel so welcome. We are not exactly the most outgoing people yet we are actually still in contact with a number of people we met through the show, be they the families of some of the other children, production assistants and even an associate director. Having said that, it was a lot of work for Declan- early calls, a lot of traveling. He handled it all so wonderfully.





8. What was it like working with Jim Gaffigan?

I was impressed with how pleasant Jim always was toward us. He, along with Jeannie, were involved in every single aspect of the making of that show. They both had a lot on their plates but were always great with the children; that is really evident when you watch the two episodes I mention below in the answer to number 10.





9. How did Declan enjoy filming with Ashley Williams?

Declan was pretty coy with Ashley at first, but there were a few times early on in the season when she went out of her way to make Declan comfortable. Ashley is as talented, bright, funny and kind as she is beautiful and she is a great mother in her own right.





10. Do you have a favorite episode that he worked on?

Two episodes are particularly special to us: Season 2, Episode 8 ("He Said, She Said") and Season 2, Episode 10 ("Jim at the Museum"). Declan has some memorable scenes in both.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thanks for always being so nice to us. Happy holidays to all.

Ryder and Gunner Gadbois play the role of Connor Newman on The Young and The Restless. To keep up to date make sure to follow them on Instagram and keep checking back here at the site.








1. How do Gunner and Ryder enjoy auditioning?

They absolutely love it! They are such great listeners at auditions, too!


2. What was the experience like filming their Pampers commercial?

It was so much fun. It was filmed at a gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion and the boys got to meet other adorable babies who they are still friends with today!


3. What is a typical day on set at The Young and the Restless like for Gunner and Ryder?

We typically arrive and head to the cafe on the lot for some snacks or food (and Starbucks for me) then we head to their dressing room where all of the toddlers who are filming that day usually gather together to play and share food. We get them dressed then head to get their hair done. The kids all play until their scenes are up!


4. What do they do to pass the time between filming scenes?

They play with all the other kids either in a dressing room or the school room with their amazing set teacher, Linda!


5. How do they enjoy filming with Ryan and Holden?

They love Ryan and Holden. They always want to do what the older boys are doing, you can tell they look up to them. Whenever the 4 boys are together in the dressing room, it gets a little wild!


6. How did Gunner and Ryder enjoy working with Cali May Kinder?

They absolutely love Cali! They were always so excited to see her when they arrived. I remember during one scene, they hadn't seen her yet and she walked on the stage with "Chloe" and one of the boys yelled "look it's Cali!" They had to redo the take!


7. What is it like filming with Elizabeth Hendrickson?

She is such a sweet and kind soul. She always makes a point of talking to all the kids and playing with them.


8. Was it hard for the boys to film the scenes for Adam's funeral?

I'm not sure, they did it so effortlessly! I think they definitely played off the emotion in the room and that seemed to make them a little sad on film but they were fine once they were off the set.


9. How did Gunner and Ryder react to going to YR without Justin there?

At first they kept asking where tv dad was. I just kept saying "I don't think he's going to be here today" after several days of asking they finally started asking if "uncle nick" would be there.


10. Do you have a favorite scene that they've done this year?

Gosh, That's so hard. So many scenes they have filmed this year have been so important and great for many different reasons. I especially love the holiday episodes because it's so fun having so many people on set and the boys eat up all the attention they get.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you to all the amazing and kind fans for watching and following the adventures of Gunner and Ryder. We are so grateful to be a part of the Y&R family!

Alina Foley played the role of Claire Brady on Days of our Lives. This year Alina has appeared on Celebrity Family Feud, continued as the voice of Leah on Shimmer and Shine and filmed an episode of School of Rock. To keep up to date, be sure to visit her official fansite or check back here!










1. Is there anyone you miss working with from The League?

Honestly, I miss everyone from The League. The whole cast is great and they were all really fun people to work with. The show has definitely been a big part of my life and it still feels weird not to be going back there in the fall.

2. What was the experience like attending the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards?

Okay, I’m a HUGE dog person so that was like my favorite thing ever. I actually counted and I pet 19 dogs that night it was pretty much heaven for me. It was really inspiring to hear their stories and the whole time I kept thinking, ”What did we do to deserve dogs?!”

3. How did you enjoy attending the Gifting Suite for the Emmy Awards?

Oh, the gifting suite was really fun! I got lots of cool things, including a polaroid camera which may or may not have been my favorite. I mean, I really can’t say anything bad about people handing me free things.

4. What was the experience like for your family to be a part of Celebrity Family Feud?

To be perfectly honest it was a strange experience but definitely memorable. I was able to buy myself a new camera with the money I got so that was cool!

5. Did your family get together to watch the episode when it aired?

Yes, we made a little party of it.

6. What was your first day in the studio like for Shimmer and Shine?

I don't remember it all that well, seeing as it was over three years ago, but I do remember that I was very excited. Spent time picking out the quietest shirt I had and everything!

7. How did you feel seeing the first completed episode of the series?

I was really excited and so were all my friends. It was cool hearing my voice come out of a character, especially for the first time.

8. Other than Leah, who is your favorite character on the show?

Hmm… I think I have to go with Nahal because she reminds me so much of my own pups.

9. Do you have a favorite episode of Shimmer and Shine you've voiced?

That’s a tough one but I think it might be the Christmas episode we did in season one.

10. Is there anything you can share about your upcoming episode of School of Rock?

I had a lot of fun doing it and the whole cast was great. It’ll air January 21st so we’re pumped to see that!

Anything else you'd like to add?

I can’t think of anything else, just want to wish everyone a happy holidays and I think everyone’s ready to welcome the new year!

Jared Breeze plays the role of Max Rayburn on The Young and the Restless. He has also been seen on Your Family or Mine, in the film The Boy, and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow him on Twitter.










1. How did you get started acting?

That was about five years ago. Jimmy Kimmel filmed a Halloween special at his cousin's house in Studio City where I lived. Basically they were pranking the trick or treaters. Then they showed three or four clips on the show, and mine was one of them. To see myself on TV totally got me hooked and it was really fun doing that!


2. What was your time on set like filming your movie The Boy?

It was great flying to Columbia and seeing this foreign country and it's beautiful landscape. Being on set every day was a huge new experience but also a bit exhausting. Working with David Morse and Rainn Wilson taught me a few things. The best week though was when Aiden Lovekamp was filming his scenes with me. We had a great time!


3. Do you have a favorite scene you filmed for the film?

Funny enough it was a scene we did on the first day of shooting, the scene where I observe the road from my treehouse. It was a whole production getting me into that tree with stunt coordinators, different harnesses, cables and so on. I felt like James Bond!


4. What was the best part of working on Your Family or Mine?

The best part of doing "Your Family or Mine" was performing in front of a live audience. That gives you an extra kick. After that show I went straight into a theater production for the holidays called "The Littlest Angel", so the sit com was great practice.


5. What has your experience been like working on The Young and the Restless?

Daytime drama took a bit getting used to. The pace is very fast. You need to nail your scene right away but everybody is very and supportive. Really like a big family but that actually like each other.


6. How do you like working with Sean Carrigan?

Sean was great, very professional, always made sure we rehearse our scenes but also had time to joke around. Very funny guy.


7. What is it like filming with Melissa Ordway?

Although Melissa's character and mine fight a lot in the story and become downright hostile, we actually had a good time on set joking around and laughing a lot.


8. What is the best part of working with Eileen Davidson?

She was really nice. She was really helpful in our scenes and made it easy for me to have Max trust her.


9. Do you have a favorite scene that you have filmed?

The whole baby shower story actually. There was a lot of action and acting out the plan was great fun, even though it was a mean thing to do.


10. Is there anything you can share about your role in American Kings?

Only that I play the son in a mafia type family.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Just that I had an amazing time so far working with really great people. And thank you guys for doing such a great job on your website!

4. What was your time on set like filming your Mr. Clean commercial?

I spent a REALLY long time in hair and makeup. They needed to make me bald with a tiny patch of hair.


5. How did you react when you found out you booked Rocco?

I was excited and happy that I was going to play Rocco and see myself on TV!


6. What was your first day on set at General Hospital like?

The first day on set at General Hospital was fun because when I was all done they clapped. Everyone I met was really nice.


7. What is the best part of filming with Emme Rylan?

Kayla Madison played Lila Rae Alcazar on General Hospital. This year she has been seen on Transparent, The Middle, and more! To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.










1. What was your experience like working on Transparent?

Working on Transparent was a lot of fun. Loved the wardrobe, so my style. It reminded me of the clothes I got to wear in Masters of Sex. I enjoyed shooting the scene in the music room because I got to interact with other kids which always makes my job that much more exciting.


2. What was your time on set like filming The Middle?

Being on the show The Middle is one of my favorite shows that I have worked on. It was a super funny show with great actors. Even though I shot a few episodes with no lines it was still nice to be there and have such great actors for my set family.


3. How do you like working with Jen Ray?

Jen Ray is so sweet with a great personality and a great actress. We became good friends while working together. I look forward to working with her again.


4. How did you like appearing on Children's Hospital?

I couldn't take the scary clown seriously while he was pretend playing the guitar and especially with the face makeup.


5. What was your experience like working on Henry Danger?

O.MG. Henry Danger was my favorite by far. I was so happy to work with my friend Ella Anderson even though we played enemies on the show. I thought it was so cool to get slimed and yes it was super messy but so worth it. I hope they bring back my character Jana back because I had the time of my life on this show.


6. What was the process like filming Win, Lose or Love?

Win, Lose or Love was a great movie to be part of. I worked on this project for 3 weeks and I enjoyed every moment of it. I loved working with Corey Sevier who played my Dad. We had fun working on Soccer techniques together. The production crew was so kind to me especially because I was scheduled to work on Halloween and they did a candy scavenger hunt in my trailer and I got to trick or treat on set with all the crew. I got a lot of candy.


7. How did you enjoy working with Griffin Kunitz?

Griffin was so funny and sweet, we spent a lot of time hanging out.


8. Do you have a favorite scene that you filmed?

I enjoyed them all, but I enjoyed the soccer scenes the best. It was fun learning a new sport.


9. What was one of the funniest things to happen on or off set while working on the movie?

One thing that I can think of that was super funny was when they were filming me trying to kick the ball to make the goal, I completely missed the ball all together. That definitely got everyone laughing.


10. What has been your favorite project to do this year and why?

Henry Danger was my favorite show of the year. Nothing better than working on one of your favorite shows.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I'm thankful for the experiences that I have had and I hope that 2017 brings great opportunities to work again on other jobs as well as Nickelodeon and maybe even Disney

Sloane Morgan Siegel did an episode of The Neighbors. He stars as Gortimer in Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street and recently filmed an episode of Pure Genius! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, like his page on Facebook, follow him on Twitter and follow him on Instagram.








1. What was your time on set like filming Pure Genius?

It was great to be back in front of the camera and some of their crew were even from Gortimer. It was a challenging role since I was paralyzed and in a wheelchair for a lot of the filming. The cast and crew were awesome to work with and I loved the chance to stretch my character.


2. What was it like attending the "Knott's Scary Farm" event?

It's always a fun but frightening time there. I had a blast.


3. How did you enjoy attending Tiger Beat's pre-party for the Teen Choice Awards?

I had just finished a photo shoot for Tiger Beat, and had a full page in the new magazine launch. Tiger Beat knows how to throw a party and most of my friends and fellow entertainers were there to share the good food and music.


4. What was the experience like doing a STEM Panel for Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street?

Who wouldn't want to go to Google Headquarters in LA to see how those technology rock stars live? I got to share the panel with my Gortimer cast and friends and the questions from the young kids were awesome. Also, it was our first time to actually screen "The Abnormal Formal" episode where Gortimer gets his first real kiss.


5. Do you socialize with any of your Gortimer Gibbon's co-stars outside of filming/show events?

Absolutely. Chandler Kinney and David Bloom and I are the best of friends. Sadly, Drew and Ashley live in Texas and Coco is going to college. However, Drew and his family did surprise me by flying in for my 16th birthday party.


6. What is it like working with David Bloom?

David and I actually worked together on a CBS show, "Partners" where we played the same character at different ages. He's a blast to work with because of his tongue in cheek humor. We are at each other's homes often as our families have become very close.


7. How do you like filming with Coco Grayson?

Coco is a true professional actress, we never broke character in a scene, and the results really show.


8. What was your last day on set like for the season?

I was Gortimer for 20% of my life at that point. It was the saddest day of my professional career, seeing an end to three beautiful years of my life. The cast and crew became a real family and it was hard to say goodbye to everyone and to Gortimer himself. However, Hollywood is a funny place where you continue to run into old friends on different projects.


9. How has Gortimer grown from the start of season one to the end of season two?

The whole point of the show is about growing through puberty and adolescence. He's done that. He's become a teenager, navigated relationships, family, friends, and school. I basically went through it with him as well.


10. What was your favorite episode to work on for the second half of season two?

I loved the entire season, but I'd say it was "The Mystery of Marlowe Mansion". We got to portray multiple different characters, worked in an actual haunted mansion, and did our table read in a fancy ballroom. It was awesome.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you all for watching "Gortimer" and supporting me so far in my career. Be sure to catch me on CBS in my role as Evan Coleman in the new hit hospital drama, "Pure Genius" Episode Ten, "Hero Worship" early in January of 2017. It was definitely a very challenging role and be sure to bring your tissues. There will be tears.

Matthew and Nathan Scott played the role of Tate Black on Days of Our Lives. This year the boys have also booked Superstore and shot for Hazel and Holly! To keep up to date make sure to follow them on Instagram.










1. How did Matthew and Nathan get started in the industry?

I definitely regret not getting the twins started in the entertainment industry earlier. I know identical twins get a lot of direct bookings in that first year. However, I did not submit them to an agent until after their first birthday. My friend had her baby in the industry and she encouraged me to submit photos of my twins to her agent. At first I was very skeptical, but I did some research and prayed about, and then decided to give it a try. I did not really think that it would go anywhere, but a few weeks later I got an email from the agent asking for more pictures of my twins and then she accepted them.


2. What was their time on set like working on Superstore?

The best part of working on Superstore was getting to be on the Universal lot and the craft services! So many great shows are filmed on that lot, so it was an honor to be there. And the food was unreal! We did not have craft services on the set of Days of Our Lives, so that was a special treat for us.


3. How did the boys enjoy shooting for Hazel and Holly?

Shooting for Hazel and Holly was probably the boys favorite job. They shot those beautiful images outdoors, so my nature loving boys were absolutely in their element! The photographer did not want staged smiles, but more authentic expressions, so the boys spent the shoot playfully gathering pine cones and sticks :)


4. What was the audition process like for Days?

On a Friday I got an email from my agent saying that the twins had an interview with the casting director from Days of Our Lives on Monday morning. I had not submitted headshots to the agent yet, so I was shocked that they already had such a big audition! They needed pictures ASAP, so I had to take my own headshot that day. The agent also recommended dressing them in solid colored onesies for the audition, so I had to go shopping too! On Monday morning my mom and I drove to LA and met with the casting director at 10am. She had me take the boys out of their stroller and she observed them as they played in her office. Then she called a male employee to come hold one of the twins to see how he would react to a man he didn't know. The employee walked around the office, and then took Nathan to another room. Then the casting director picked up Matthew and had me go hide in her office. Neither of the twins noticed that I left the room and were happy to play with their new friends. The casting director took some pictures of them on her phone and said they were "perfect". I remember her telling me "these twins should be working!" She was surprised that it was their first audition. After we left the office the babies feel asleep in the car immediately. My mom and I were very excited on the way home, but we tried not to get our hopes up, just in case.


5. How did you react when they booked the soap?

By Friday I had not heard back about DOOL, so I was starting to think they did not get the job, but by the end of the day I got an email from my agent saying they booked the recurring role! I was so excited and I messaged my friends and family to tell them to good news and to thank them for their prayers! Then I set the DVR to record the show, so I could figure out who their parents were on the show :)


6. What was the experience like for the boys to film for Days of Our Lives?

Working on DOOL was a blessing, and I will always be so grateful for the experience. The boys had their own dressing room where we would play with toys, read books, and eat snacks until they were needed set. Most days we only had one scene to film, so we were in and out quickly. We were never there more than four hours, and it was often only about 2 hours.


7. How did they enjoy working with Jen Lilley?

The best part of DOOL was working with Jen Lilley! I absolutely adore her! In fact, we are still in touch, and I hope we will be friends for years to come. From day one she was so warm and friendly, and the boys absolutely loved her! She truly went above and beyond to make the boys comfortable on set. If she thought it was too cold in the dressing room, she would be the first to advocate for the boys. She spent hours of her own time playing with the Matthew and Nathan in their dressing room. We were so spoiled with the best ever TV mom. We love you Jen!


8. How did the boys enjoy working with Eric Martsolf?

Eric Martsolf has twin boys in real life, so it was cool that we had that in common. He was commuting back and forth from Las Vegas, so we didn't see him as much as we saw Jen. But he always kind to the boys on set.


9. Is there anyone you wish they would have had a chance to work with?

The actors who played Marlena, Maggie, Nicole, Gabby, and Paul were all so kind and welcoming to my boys, so I would have loved for the boys to have more scenes with any them!


10. Do you have a favorite scene the boys the boys got to film?

It's hard to pick a favorite scene...One of my favorite scenes started with Matthew in the stroller, but he was reaching for Jen, so she took him out and convinced the director to let her hold him during the scene. The director said it might be complicated if she had to push the stroller and carry a baby as they exit the room, but Jen told him "being a mom is complicated", which is so true! Another one of my favorite scenes was when Matthew was sitting on Jen's lap at the cafe as she talked to Eric. I packed snacks for him to eat during the scene, but he was so happy to sit with Jen he did not even want them. Instead they gave him a stuffed bunny to hold, which was wet with slobber by the end of the scene. He was teething at the time, so everything he touched became a chew toy. Sorry to the crew who had to clean that wet bunny!


We'd like to thank Matthew, Nathan and their family for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

Emily Skinner played the role of Kim Marston on Days of Our Lives. This year she has done episodes of Angel From Hell, Rizzoli & Isles, and will be seen in the series Andi Mack next year! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Instagram.










1. What was your experience like working on Days of Our Lives?

I had so much fun working on Days of Our Lives! The cast and crew were kind and helpful, and it gave me such an appreciation for how talented the actors are! I was very young, and was only there for one day, but loved being there!


2. How did you like working with Kristian Alfonso?

I remember thinking Kristian was very beautiful and looked up to her because she is an incredible actress... something I have always aspired to be! She was very sweet and took the time to pose with me for a picture after I was done, even though she was very busy rehearsing and getting ready for the next scene.


3. What was it like filming with Lauren Boles?

I got to spend a little time with Lauren that day, rehearsing and shooting. She has a beautiful smile and is easy to talk too! It was fun playing opposite her because her acting felt so real and natural.


4. How did you enjoy filming your Doritos commercials?

I absolutely loved filming those Doritos commercials! I did three of them, Birthday Wish and Chainsaw were directed by Kevin Willson and Fluffy was directed by Chau Luu! One funny moment I remember was when we were filming Fluffy, the dog kept running away during the picnic scene and we were all cracking up!


5. What was the experience like working on Criminal Minds?

I was sooo excited to get to work on this show! I didn't actually watch the show at that time, because I was too young, but I had auditioned for it a few times before and knew it would be amazing to get to work on it! The cast was very friendly and the woman who played my mom was very caring and sweet!


6. What was your time on set like filming for Angel from Hell?

I was so excited to meet Jane Lynch because I watch her on Glee and think she is hilarious! I thought I might not get to meet her because she wasn't in my scene, but then she showed up and I was lucky enough to get to talk to her a little and take a picture with her!


7. How did you enjoy filming your episode of Rizzoli and Isles?

Being on Rizzoli and Isles was a wonderful experience, even though I had to die. It was my first experience playing a character who dies on a Network show, and I found the whole process interesting. The only gross thing is how sticky you feel from the fake blood! You REALLY appreciate hair and make up and I learned that shaving cream can remove the fake blood from my hair!


8. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with so far?

This is a really tough question because I haven't ever had a bad experience... and am thrilled every time I book something and get to be on set! One of my favorite favorite memories was working on the Jessica Biel directed short film Sodales with Tyler Wilkins! I loved filming everything outdoors... it felt so adventurous! Jessica was such a great director and I just loved her so much! I couldn't wait to come to set every day and work with this cast and crew! Another amazing experience for me was working with director Julius Onah on the music video and short film Broken Arrows (song by Aviicii). I don't even know how to explain how safe and comfortable I felt acting on this set amongst this cast and crew! Joshua Fredric Smith played my Dad and is just such a beautiful person inside and out! It was a magical experience for me and I left feeling proud of my work and inspired to book more film work!


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

I love working on Disney shows! Shake It Up and Austin and Ally were a ton of fun! Shake it up was especially fun because we got to do a live taping on the last day! I also got to pet and spend time with a real kangaroo on Austin and Ally! Who wouldn't like that? Working on Nickelodeon's Sam and Cat was a blast too! It was amazing to work with Ariana Grande, Jennette McCurdy, and Cameron Ocasio... and such an honor to be directed by Dan Schneider! There was a lot of laughter and talent on this set and I still hang out with Griffin Kane, the boy who played my on set brother, when he flies into town!


10. Is there anything you can share about your role on Andi Mack?

I am not supposed to reveal much about my character on Andi Mack or the show itself but I can tell you that playing the role of Amber has definitely been one of my favorite experiences so far as an actress... everyone is going to love this show! It is written by Terri Minsky who wrote Lizzie McGuire, and the story is amazing... You will fall in love with the characters! The lead cast are some of my favorite people and I am always so excited when I get to fly out and spend time with them!!!!


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would just like to thank you for asking me to participate in this Q & A session and wish everyone a very happy holidays and a happy new year!!!

Dax Randall plays the role of Moses on The Young and the Restless. He has been seen for Crazy 8, in a commercial for United Health Care and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow him on Twitter and Instagram.









1. How did you get started acting?

By auditioning for commercials.


2. What is your favorite part of auditioning?

Getting to pretend to do different things or be different characters.


3. What was your time on set like filming your United Health Care commercial?

It was fun because they were really nice and followed me around with cameras while I played.


4. How did you enjoy shooting for Crazy 8?

I loved it. They were nice each time I was there and it was fun being with all of the other kids.


5. How did you react when you found out you booked The Young and the Restless?

I just got really happy and excited because it was my first TV show.


6. What was it like filming with Kristoff St. John?

Awesome! He is the best because he's so nice and helped me do my best in every scene. It was like having my real dad.


7. How did you enjoy working with Christel Khalil?

She's really nice and made me feel great about how I did.


8. What was the best part of working with McKenna Roberts and Aidan Clark?

They're both so nice and helped me know when to be quiet on set if we were off camera. They're really fun to be with too.


9. Did you do anything special to watch your first episode on TV?

Oh yes. My dad made popcorn and my two brothers, my mom and my dad got under blankets on the couch and watched our scenes.


10. Is there anyone in the cast you hope to get a chance to work with next year?

Abigail and Brielle Rivera play the role of Douglas Forrester on The Bold and The Beautiful. This year the girls were also seen on Jane The Virgin and more. To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.









1. What was the first day on set like for Jane the Virgin?

The first day on Jane the Virgin was quite surreal. We were brought directly to the stage, put in wardrobe, and shuffled onto set. There was no waiting. The babies were sick and kept crying during shooting. Thank goodness it was a hospital scene and tears were ok because there was no consoling them. E was also there to interview us on our new career - we were really just thrown into it.


2. How different is it working in primetime vs. daytime?

Working daytime and primetime is actually quite different. Daytime moves so quickly. They shoot a scene a few times at most and are done. Some days we worked on more than one episode. Primetime was a lot slower. It would take hours to film one scene. It would take a week or more to film one episode.


3. What was it like working with Justin Baldoni?

Justin was so respectful and great with the babies! He has a young daughter; and you can tell, just embraces the dad role.


4. How did the girls enjoy filming with Yael Grobglas?

This question made me giggle. There was one day the girls had just finished a bottle and didn't have time to burp before shooting the scene. Yael picked up Abby who quickly spit up all over Yael's beautiful silk dress. Wardrobe was able to clean it, but Yael was not happy. Oops!


5. How did you react when Abigail and Brielle were cast on The Bold and the Beautiful?

Being cast on B&B happened so quickly. I had no idea what to expect, but it was very exciting! Our experience with the show was so pleasant. Everyone was so gracious and accomodating. From the first day on set, we always felt welcomed.


6. What was the first day on set like?

To say this was a new experience would be an understatement. The people who work at B&B have been there for so long that everything worked like a well-oiled machine. I was really nervous our first day, not knowing what to expect; and the teacher, the nurse, the PA - everyone - was so calm. I gladly handed over a baby and stood back behind a monitor with a cup of coffee watching the magic unfold.


7. Is there a way to tell the girls a part in their scenes?

I still can't tell the girls apart. Your guess is as good as mine.


8. What is it like working with Thorsten Kaye?

Thorsten was so nice and funny! Unlike some actors, he'd always say hi to the parents and ask how we were doing.


9. What is it like filming with Linsey Godfrey?

Linsey is awesome! She's such a goofball off screen, but as soon as the camera starts rolling, she goes into character. She had a way about her - always able to calm the babies, even if it meant wiping snot of their faces.


10. What is your favorite scene the girls have done?

This is a hard question. Each scene the girls did was so different from the last. The people behind the cameras are the ones who really make or break the experience. Some days of shooting were stressful - tensions were high and things not organized. Other days, things were so easy and even relaxing. In all honesty, I was most proud on two extra jobs. One was for Greys Anatomy and one for Grace and Frankie. The directors came up to me afterwards and told me that the girls were the easiest babies they have ever worked with. It was a proud mom moment.


We'd like to thank the Rivera family for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

To keep up to date make sure to visit her official website, like her page on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram.








1. What was the experience like volunteering with the LA Mission this year for Thanksgiving?

Volunteering at the LA Mission is an amazing experience. We actually work and get to interact with these fantastic people. Serving someone a hot meal and seeing their smile is a gift.


2. What was the best part of attending the Dream Halloween event?

This was my first time at the Dream Halloween event and it was an amazing night for an amazing cause! Our whole squad went, my sister Merit Leighton vlogged it with Ben Stockham, Izzy Eggerling and Jacob Hopkins and his brother Gerad. Fantastic night!


3. How did you enjoy attending the Trolls premiere?

That rainbow carpet at the Trolls premier was amazing and meeting Justin Timberlake was pretty cool, he was so gracious! Trolls is one of our family's favorite movies, especially in 3D. Go see it!


4. Do you have an update for us on The Nerd Posse?

Yes! The Nerd Posse is filming right after Christmas. So excited the producers, crew and of course the cast are all amazing! Stay tuned to @thenerdpossetv for behind the scenes and announcements soon!


5. What was the audition process like for Fresh Off the Boat?

I had been into the CDs office for Fresh Off The Boat a bunch of times. When I read this part I was like YEAH, I love Reba! This audition was on tape for producers... and I didn't hear anything for about a week and then they called and I booked it! I really, really love this character. I'm SO blessed to play Reba, one of my favorite roles ever.


6. What was your first day on set like?

Everyone truly is super kind and talented on the set of Fresh Off The Boat. There was one day where I had a few scenes alone so I was the only actor on set for a few hours, that was a crazy cool. Everyone from the producers, writers, directors, hair, makeup, wardrobe and of course the cast all make it an awesome experience every time.


7. How do you like working with Hudson Yang?

Hudson is so great work with we had a fun. He's a super cool guy and working with him always makes for a great day on set! I love stalking him as Reba, it's the best! LOL


8. What is it like filming with Randall Park?

Randall was incredibly kind and came up to me the first time I had a scene with him and told me "You're hilarious!" so that really made my day!


9. Is there anyone in the cast you hope to get to work with?

My dream was to work with Randall Park and Constance Wu in a scene, and that actually just happened in the Halloween episode called Louisween, we had a scene where Reba played a polish ghost, total greatness.


10. What would you like to see happen next for Reba?

I love that Reba gets to sing a lot on the show, I'm a singer so getting to play a character I love that sings, is pretty much perfection. The writers create incredibly funny unexpected comedy for Reba all the time, but I think it would be fun if Reba was the lead in a school play, ran for class president or became Eddies tutor since her and Louis seem to have it off lol!

AJ Hudson was seen in an episode of The Neighbors. This year he has been seen on Pure Genius, in commercials for Chrysler and more! To keep up to date make sure to like his page on Facebook, follow him on Twitter and follow him on Instagram.









1. How did you get started acting?

We had meant to start acting around 5 years old but just didn't know where to start. One day after church someone stopped us in Walmart in Duarte, CA and asked if I acted. My parents said no but we want to get him into it. They invited us out to a showcase later that day at the Doubletree Hotel. I killed it and they invited me to Gary Spatz's The Playground. We didn't enroll though because it cost too much money. But it got my dad started in the process. Getting pictures taken, signing up for casting websites and mailing out my comp cards to a bunch of different agencies. No one ever responded. LOL.

What was your first booking?

My first booking was a short film called Angels Among Us. Me and my dad actually were in it. It's not the only thing we have been in together.


2. How do you prepare for an audition?

Well before I started going to James Marshall of the Marshall Studios, my dad would break down the script for me and help set the scene like time, place, people, my relation to other parties in scene etc etc. I would memorize the lines without any emotion, unless it said how to play it, so that way when I get to audition I can put in what ever emotion they say.


3. What was your experience like filming for The Neighbors?

The Neighbors was actually my first SAG role. Very interesting story, I was doing background but the girl who had the line wasn't delivering and we were losing daylight. The 1st AD comes over and asks who can yell really loud. In sports my dad has always taught me to raise my hand and get to the front of the line whenever doing drills. So this was the same to me. I raised my hand. He had me and another kid scream and he chose me! And that's when I became SAG Eligible. Just like like! It was a Halloween episode called Challoweenakuh. Which is combination of Halloween and Hanukkah (candy and presents for 8 days lol) . It was shot at a park in VanNuys California.

4. What was the best part of filming the Chrysler Pacifica commercials?

Oh man this was so much fun because it was unscripted and a live environment. The families were coming in thinking there were coming to a focus group about the Pacifica. But upon getting there they were greeted by us "Pacifikids" running the dealership. We took over the entire thing. I was general manager of my group and I got to slide down a slide from the 2nd floor into a ball pit! Who wouldn't love that!


5. Do you have any funny stories from filming the commercials?

In the Pacifikids the first couple of times that I slid into the ball pit I couldn't get out! It took me a couple minutes to get out! then after a few times of doing it I saw there was a rope that was intended for us to use! Lol. I wish someone would have told me sooner! Also if you get a chance to see it, after we made a sale there is a loud confetti explosion that we didn't know was going to happen and it startled us! You can see me jump and look up like WHAT WAS THAT! Then I started dancing and singing "we got a buyer"


6. How did you enjoy filming your episode of Pure Genius?

Pure Genius was amazing to shoot! I mean the episode is about me! I got a lay underneath a car like I was being smashed! I had fake legs made too for when I had to go into surgery! I got to lay in a coffin type bed with the fake legs on top and they cut it open. It was so cool! Unfortunately the show was not picked up for the 2nd half of season. But everyone said I did really well! You guys need to hop over to CBS and watch it! Episode 2.


7. What was your experience like doing voice over work for Barbie: Dreamtopia?

I really enjoy doing voice over work! I play Jace in the Dreamtopia series. It's a cute little series. I can't want for it to blow up! Voice is fun because he can act truly silly. But it takes a little bit more acting because you usually have nothing to look at. You have to pull it from within.


8. What was your time on set like filming your Nike commercial?

Nike was so cool! I mean it's Nike and LeBron James and basketball! We got to play basketball. Not much but enough that it didn't feel like work! Ya know! You can see that commercial on NBA2K17 as well as tv across the world! Yes it is an international commercial.


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

Mr. Danny DeVito, Charlie Day, Jamal Mixon aka Hercules while shooting It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And all the cast of Pure Genius they were truly a blessing. EVERYONE was so nice and very talented!


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

It is easily Chrysler Pacifikids. Working with kids my age was fun. And having no script I was able to just improv! Which I love to do. Pure Genius and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was fun.We traveled to Philly for 6 days to shoot the 2nd part of scene. Look for that to come out around Jan 4th on FXX where I play Black Charlie.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

To anyone thinking about getting into the business know that it is a business. Don't take things too personally. Have fun, enjoy and embrace the experience. Know that you will have to make some sacrifices. I am the started point guard and quarterback on my teams and I have to miss games and practices some times. But I understand I'm doing something that will put me in position to live a really good life. We are humbled and thankful by each job that God brings our way! Stay prayed up because in this business you will need something to keep you level headed!


Thank you for allowing me to take a part in your Q&A.
V fingers yall.

Jeremiah Clayton appeared in multiple episodes of Days of Our Lives. He and his twin brother Maverick have done multiple print shoots, been seen on Fear the Walking Dead and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow them on Instagram.









1.How did you get started in the industry?

Our mom's friend has a daughter who has worked on many commercials. She told our mom about the industry and that most toddlers and babies on TV are twins or triplets. She submitted some pictures of us and many agencies wanted to represent us. We ended up working with ZURI Model and Talent.


2. What was the experience like working on Days of Our Lives?

(Jeremiah)-I have worked for DOOL three times. Working on set is very fast paced and everything moves very quick on a soap opera. I had fun because every time I worked it was a holiday scene so I was in costume two of those scenes and dressed in Christmas attire for the other.


3. What was your time on set like filming Jane the Virgin?

(Jeremiah)-JTV was super fun. I got to learn more about the acting industry and the actors were really cool. Justin Baldoni is a super cool guy and came up and introduced himself as soon as I walked on set. I also learned that one scene gets filmed many times from many different angles. It can take a long time just to film one small scene.


4. How did you enjoy shooting for Discovery Toys?

(Maverick)-It was fun! The other kid on the shoot and I got to shoot water guns at each other and play with a water hose. It didn't feel like work at all. The only downfall was that the water was a little cold.


5. What is the best part of shooting for California Costumes?

(Maverick)-Working for California Costumes was fun, as it was just like playing dress up. I got to be a Viking which was pretty cool.


6. What was the experience like working on Fear the Walking Dead?

(Maverick)-Working on FTWD has been the best job I have worked so far. I not only got to work with a super cool cast and crew but I got to travel to Mexico. The studio was located right on the beach and I got to film on the "Abigail" (a boat) on the same water tank where the "Titanic" was filmed. I learned how movies that take place "in the ocean" are filmed. The entire cast and crew made my brother and I feel like we were part of the FTWD family.


7. How did you enjoy working with Jake Walker?

(Jeremiah)- Jake is a super cool guy. On the show he played our big brother and even when we weren't filming he was like a big brother. We actually spent a lot of time with him in Mexico. We even went to the movies one day to watch Star Wars!

(Maverick) Jake is really fun to hang out with. He is a really down to earth kind of guy and an awesome actor.


8. What was it like filming with Frank Dillane?

(Maverick)- Frank is super cool. He was really nice and he was like a big brother. He is a really talented actor and I learned a lot just from watching him on set. Between scenes we would play the PS4 and also sling rocks from the cliff from some slingshots I bought in Mexico. Most of my scenes were with him so I spent the most time with him. I really looked up to him and hope to become a great actor like he is.


9. How do you decide which one of you gets to film scenes?

(Jeremiah)- When we first arrived in Mexico we visited the studios. The director took us on a little "tour" of the lot in the golf cart. Afterwards we had to say a few lines and they decided to use Maverick for the first day of work. Most scenes ended up being filmed by Maverick as he was doing a good job. Also, it didn't help that I had lost a front tooth two days before filming, then lost the other front tooth a few days before the second month of filming OR that I had a little accident at the hotel where I fell and scraped my face pretty bad. When I did end up filming I had to wear fake teeth, made by the special effects crew, and required make up to cover my scrapes.


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

(Maverick & Jeremiah)- Definitely, FTWD as it involved working on location and working with one of the most awesome cast and crews! We still miss everyone we worked with.


We'd like to thank Jeremiah and Maverick for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

Leilani Brosnan filmed for an episode of The Neighbors. This year she has been seen for Old Navy, Guess, and more! To keep up to date make sure to like her page on Facebook and follow her on Instagram.










1. How did you enjoy filming your Raise Our Voices video for Barbie?

"Raise Our Voices" for Barbie was really fun to shoot with all the girls and I thought the music video turned out really well. At first I felt quite nervous when I saw what great dancers the other girls were and I had to just work on my confidence a little and just go out there and do the best job I could. After this experience my Mom decided I should take more dance classes and I have been doing that ever since!


2. What has been your favorite outfit to shoot for Guess?

Wow! They're all great but the Back Cover shot for the Spring 2016 catalogue that they used of me has to be a favorite since I got to wear a cute bikini and a lei and my name after all is Leilani! My mom really liked the outfit and photo of me with the flower covering one eye from the fall campaign.


3. Which type of project do you enjoy working on most out of print, commercial and television?

That's a tough question...but I do more print than anything else so I guess I'll go with that. Print jobs often pay by the hour so sometimes we are in and out in a few hours.


4. What is the best part of working for Old Navy?

I have worked for Old Navy 3 or 4 times. The best time was when we flew to San Francisco, stayed in Marin County, and then shot the first day in the small quaint town of Bolinas Bay. The site was a "designer" farm house with huge grounds outside of rolling hills of grass where all the kids got to play between shots. The Old Navy staff is always really nice and the food is really good. Plus it's always fun to see familiar faces.


5. What has it been like to see your images up in their stores?

It's always a thrill and of course my Mom makes sure they save them for her whenever possible. We have tons of these posters stored in our garage in case we ever have a use for them. It's also sort of fun when friends at school say they saw me in the Old Navy windows or behind the counters and send us texts with the photos - sometimes from Vegas, Canada or Europe.


6. How did you enjoy shooting your Target commercial?

It was really fun because I got to jump up and down popping bubbles while filming and run around with the other girls on set. Plus Target always has the best Craft Services - my favorite!


7. What was it like shooting for Designer Shoe Warehouse?

I just loved the shoes I wore in one of the shots but then we couldn't find my size when we went to try and buy them later in the store! The photographers were also great to work with at that shoot so we got to goof off in the photos!


8. What was the experience like filming your Disney Princess commercial?

It was a two day shoot and the first day we filmed at a gorgeous house in Pasadena with a huge pool. The crew wore wet suits and had underwater cameras and equipment to film me underwater as I did back flips, diving and spirals. Unfortunately though, the water was a bit old. My Mom panicked slightly when they asked me to do these tricks since we didn't know about them ahead of time but luckily I was able to do them ok.

The second day we filmed in Malibu at the beach and I was wearing an Ariel Princess mermaid dress and they had me sitting on a rock while they filmed me as the waves crashed over my head to match the scene in the video. Finally, they had to stop filming because I was soaking wet! Unfortunately this scene was cut from the final clip so we never got to see it...show biz!


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

The photographer for GUESS is named Rus Anson from Barcelona and not only is she an amazing photographer, she is also an amazing person. She is just so nice to all the kids and makes every shot so fun. I also always enjoy the jobs with Wranglers whose job it is to make the kids laugh a lot in shots.


10. What has been your favorite project to work on this year and why?

I love the GUESS shoots - they are always done at the most interesting and exciting places. They also have the best catering people so the food is amazing too. Everyone is always so nice. Their shoots feel like a vacation...and not like work at all.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I love being a model and actor because I always have so much fun on set and get to wear cute clothes and meet nice people in fun settings. Looking forward to more fun in 2017!


We'd like to thank Leilani for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

1. What was your time on set like filming Scandal?

Scandal was a blast to work on. The cast is super nice and I got to work with a great director, Allison Lidi Brown.


2. Do you have a favorite scene you did for the episode?

My favorite scene from my episode of Scandal was the golf scene. I had to make a hole in one. The shot was pretty hard. I practiced and practiced and finally made it. The entire cast and crew cheered really loud; they forgot we were filming.


3. How did you enjoy filming your Emirates commercial?

It was such a cool experience. I got to be on a huge airplane and watch all the Star Wars movies on the plane. The Emirates A380 is a gigantic airplane. I filmed for 3 days inside the airplane. The cast and crew were super nice too.

She is super nice and we chatted a lot between scenes. Also, she gave me a shoulder massage. I loved working with her!


5. How have you enjoyed filming the 2nd season of Colony?

9. Do you have a favorite scene you've filmed for season 3 of Girl Meets World?

My favorite scene was when I was being interrogated by the police officer and screaming "DOOOOOY"! The police officer was played by Reginald VelJohnson. He was very funny and I remember him from Family Matters.


10. Is there anything you can share about your role in Fun Mom Dinner?

I made a lot of good friends such as Owen and Poppy. The actors in the movie do a lot of improvisation so we were laughing all the time. It was so much fun working with such amazing actors!


We'd like to thank Cooper for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

Sienna Mercuri plays the role of Katie Newman on The Young and the Restless. To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.










1. How did Sienna get into the industry?

People were telling me she was a cute baby, so I submitted some professional pictures to some talent agencies, had an interview and then offered representation, plus I knew the business pretty well since I studied to be an actress in college, lived in Los Angeles and pursued it for many years. I am in SAG-AFTRA myself, so I researched franchised agents. Sienna booked her very first audition when she was 18 months old, an Intel commercial. She had a couple of print jobs, but then booked the role as "Katie" as a possible recurring role-not ever auditioning for any TV shows before. So this was very exciting to get this wonderful role.


2. What has Sienna's experience been like working on The Young and the Restless?

Sienna's reply to this when asked, "I like the girl who plays my Mom".

So far, I feel like Sienna has adapted well to her role as "Katie Newman Abbott" She is having fun and enjoys acting with Ryan and Holden ("Johnny") When we film its pretty quick and easy going. I know that that is not always the case in TV so we have had a positive experience and are very thankful.


3. What was her first day on set like?

Sienna's response to this was "I think it was awesome sauce!"

I was very nervous but Sienna had to paint in one scene and eat cookies in another with "Johnny" her TV brother-so it was a pretty easy first day. Everyone was so professional, engaging and nice to Sienna and I. We really had a warm welcome from the cast and crew! Sienna really hit it off with Ryan and Holden ("Johnny") and I believe she has had great chemistry with them.


4. How do you feel seeing her first episode air?

It was exciting not knowing how it would turn out. But Sienna & I watched it live from home by ourselves, then later on with family & friends. I was very proud of her and really felt like she was natural, she seems to be very comfortable on the set.


5. What is it like filming with Jason Thompson?

Sienna says "He is a good actor and she really likes him", I would say that she is just smitten over him as well as her real mother. Hee-hee. But seriously, he is very personable, he always makes a point to say "Hello", joke around, and really engages with the kids, improvises well with them, guides them through the scene.


6. How does she enjoy working with Amelia Heinle?

Sienna says "I enjoy working with her because I love her!"

Amelia is down to earth, very sweet to Sienna and treats her like her own.


7. What has the experience been like working with Eric Braeden?

Sienna says, "He really is a good Grandpa and in real life too!"

He is very sweet with Sienna and she seemed to hit it off with him too. He has a great presence, you know you are working with the best-I used to watch him when I was a teen on this show! "Victor rules!"


8. How does Sienna like filming with Ryan and Holden?

Sienna replies, "I really love them, they are brothers and I wish I could be their sister" (she is an only child btw) She is always excited to see them and play with them in between scenes. She is sort of a Tomboy-definitely likes to keep up with them and do whatever they are doing.


9. Is there anyone in the cast you hope she has a chance to work with?

She really looks up to Aly ("Faith") I see that she is a great actress and started on the show around the same age as Sienna (4 years old). She is so good with all of the kids on the show, I think Sienna could learn a lot from her. Also I hope Sienna can work more closely with Melody Scott Thomas (her character's grandmother Nikki) I know she was a child actress herself, and Sienna could learn a lot from her as well.


10. What has been your favorite scene that she has done so far?

I loved the upcoming Christmas scenes she recently filmed. But I guess I can't elaborate because it hasn't aired yet. Sienna when asked said the same, the Christmas scene that you will see, but also enjoyed the Halloween Coffee shop scene when her and "Johnny" got to eat lots of real candy. Ha! Go figure.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Sienna said she wanted to add that "I really love acting"- and no Mom did not put her up to that. ;-) She seems to get it- She understands that she has a pretend TV family & follows direction well-I stay away from her when she films, I watch on the monitor with the other Mom(s). Jason, Amelia, and Michael ("Travis") whom she does most her scenes with improvise with her and "Johnny" and they really go with the flow of the scenes. We are having a good time and feel very blessed for the opportunity to work with such a great cast and crew on "The Young And The Restless".


We'd like to thank Sienna and her family for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

Caleb Scott is the older brother of Matthew and Nathan who played Tate on Days. He has shot for Morning Light Adventure Co, filmed for Fresh Off the Boat, and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow him on Instagram.









1. How did you get started in the industry?

Although my younger siblings were in the industry, initially I was not interested in being an actor, or a model. But over time I saw all the fun opportunities my siblings were getting and I felt like I was missing out. So, I asked my mom to get me an agent...and here we are!


2. Do you remember what your first audition was like?

My first audition was for a Famous Footwear print ad. I was wearing new black socks and I did not realize they were going to have me take off my shoes AND socks during the audition. When I took off my socks I had black fuzz stuck to my feet...whoops! They had me try on various pairs of shoes and took pictures of my feet. The shoes were a little big on me, so sadly, I did not book that job.


3. What was your shoot for Morning Light Adventure Co like?

The Morning Light Adventure Company photoshoot was a fun job. We shot outdoors at Riley Wilderness Park. My sister and I worked together that day, which made it an extra special experience. There were actually lots of other kids working that day, so I enjoyed playing with them, too.


4. How do you like doing photoshoots with your siblings?

I love doing photoshoots with my siblings, because they are silly and they make me laugh. But I also like working by myself, that way I don't have to share the spotlight! When you are one of 4 kids, its nice to be the center of attention once in awhile :)


5. How do you pass the time at a shoot when you aren't in front of the camera?

When I have a long day on set my mom brings my homework, coloring books and some new toys to keep me busy. There are usually other kids on set that I can play with, too. I also love all the food and snacks I get from craft services.


6. What is the best part of auditioning?

The best part about auditioning is getting to spend time alone time with my mom and listen to music together in the car. We usually get a special treat after my audition, so that's fun too! I also like when I get a chance to make people laugh at my audition...But my least favorite part is LA traffic!


7. If you could work on any project with your siblings what would it be?

Lately I have been watching "Fuller House" with my mom on Netflix. I think that show is hilarious, so I would LOVE to work with my siblings on that show :)


8. What was the experience like filming for Fresh Off the Boat?

Working on Fresh Off The Boat was very exciting because that was my first time working on a TV show! I filmed a scene for a Christmas party, so it was funny dressing up for Christmas in October! There were lots of other kids working that day, so I made some new friends. At one point they had all the kids waiting outside and it started to rain a little bit, so the hardest part was trying to stay dry and clean. My pants got a little muddy, but luckily my mom had an extra pair of pants that the wardrobe department approved!


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

My favorite person to work with is my sister Catelyn because she is funny and she always makes me laugh. She is my best friend.


10. What has been your favorite project to work on and why?

My favorite job was a photoshoot for Banzai Inflatable Water Slides. My sister and I got to spend the day eating pizza and swimming between shots. There were other kids on set too, so it was like a big pool party!


We'd like to thank Caleb for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

Quinn Friedman played the role of Alec on General Hospital. This year he has been seen on Teachers, Chance, and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow him on Twitter and Instagram.










1. How did you enjoy filming Who's Driving Doug?

It was a lot of fun! I got to go swimming on set and I also worked with my friend Hunter, whom I have known since Kindergarten.


2. What was your experience like filming your episode of Chance?

On Chance, I played a boy that was severely injured after being hit by a car. I could not walk or speak. I had to show a lot of emotion. It was a great experience and I enjoyed the challenge of playing this role.


3. What was it like filming your commercial for Amazon Echo?

On Amazon Echo, I had to play a magician doing a crazy magic trick. I had to pull off a tablecloth from a table full of Thanksgiving dinner. The trick went a little wrong and I dropped the entire dinner onto the floor. We practiced a few times and then did the table cloth part twice, since it was a lot to set back up.


4. Do you have a favorite commercial you've gotten to work on?

My favorite commercial I have done is a Famous Footwear commercial. In the commercial, I had to wear a suit and kiss a girl on the cheek. It was a lot of fun because I got to try something I have never done before, kissing a girl. I had a lot of fun filming it and watching it on tv.


5. What was it like attending the Family Volunteer Event for GenerationOn?

Attending the Family Volunteer Event was an amazing experience! I got to be with my family and friends stuffing fruits and vegetables for kids and adults who need it. It was so much fun giving back to the poor and spending time with my family.


6. How did you enjoy attending the Dream Halloween event?

The Dream Halloween event by Starlight Children's Foundation was incredible. It benefited sick children. The foundation with the help of Nintendo, Michaels, and other sponsors transformed the building into a Halloween extravaganza with games, crafts, music and performances. It was wonderful seeing all the kids enjoying the event and we had fun making crafts and playing games with them.


7. What was your time on set like filming Teachers?

Teachers was a blast to work on. The actors on the show are very funny. The actors do a lot of improvisation on the show and I got to do some too. We were laughing all the time. I am very excited that I am going to film another episode this week.


8. What is the best part of auditioning?

The best part of auditioning is practicing lines. I love remembering and studying scripts. I enjoy getting into different characters and breaking down the lines. Practicing lines with my father is so much fun too.


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

I worked on a pilot for NBC this year called Time Crunch with my brother. Craig Ferguson played our dad. He was hilarious and we had so much fun doing our scenes with him. It filmed at a Universal Studios sound stage, which made the experience even cooler.

Makayla Lysiak was seen in a season five episode of Parenthood. Recently she has been in episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Fosters, and more! To keep up to date make sure to like her page on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram!










1. What was your time on set like filming Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

When I was filming on Brooklyn Nine-Nine I had an amazing time on set. I met a lot of new people and made a lot of friends. The part I loved most about being on set is that I saw how collaboration and communication with the actors, director and crew were all so essential in accomplishing a funny twenty-two minute sitcom episode.


2. What was it like working with Melissa Fumero?

Melissa Fumero was super sweet and I felt comfortable preforming with her. Though I didn't interact with her much, she sent me kind smiles and hello's if I was around.


3. How did you enjoy filming Good Grief?

I enjoyed filming Good Grief because it wasn't too stressful. There wasn't any pressure in memorizing lines or making sure I did something a certain way, because all we had to do was have fun! The other talent and I played sports against each other while the team collected shots for the film. It was just like playing with my friends.


4. Where is your favorite place to audition and why?

My favorite place to audition are at studios because I get to see sets, crew members driving around in golf carts, office buildings, gift shops, etc. It's a whole other world inside those gates. Even though auditioning on a studio lot adds more pressure (in my opinion), it helps with my performance.


5. What was your experience like working on The Fosters?

The Fosters was such an incredible show to work on. I look up to so many of the actors, so I was nervous and very excited to meet them and preform with them.


6. What was it like working with Maia Mitchell?

Maia Mitchell was an amazing person to work with. She made me feel comfortable and was incredibly welcoming. I ate lunch with her and the other cast members. She told me about herself and so did I. Maia said hi to me in the make-up trailer and gave me hugs. I was so happy I had the opportunity to work with such an incredible person.


7. How did you enjoy filming with Jasmine Alveran?

Jasmine Alveran was fun to work with. We got along on set and we got to know more about each other and soon became good friends.


8. What was the best part of working on Instant Mom?

The best part of working on Instant Mom was the cast. They were so welcoming and fun. We did the robot during the live taping in front of the studio audience. We played Hide-And-Seek around set. Ate lunch together. And we played video games in our free time.


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

There were so many amazing people I worked with this year, I can't list them all.


10. What has been your favorite project to work on this year?

I can't decide what project was my favorite to take part in this year. I am grateful for all of my opportunities and jobs, I couldn't pick just one as my favorite.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you for including me in your Q&A.

Hailey Rumiantsev played the role of Maggie Gaffigan on The Jim Gaffigan Show. She has also worked on Girl on the Train, shot for Babies R Us, and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Instagram.










1. What was Hailey's shoot for Babies R Us like?

Babies R Us shoot was one of the easiest and quickest shoots she's done so far. From getting her ready to photographing her, it all took about an hour.


2. How did you react to seeing her in the catalog?

I remember when I received the catalog I was actually on my way to a dance class and I got so excited I took it with me to show it to everyone.


3. What was the experience like filming for Girl on the Train?

It still feels surreal. Although she's not in many scenes I feel very lucky she had an opportunity to work with so many amazing actors.


4. What was the day like being involved in the Posh Kids Magazine Fashion Carnival?

Fashion shows are very fast paced, everyone was rushing to change and go back out on the runway. Hailey only wore one outfit so it was easier for us, she was watching Barney and eating crackers while waiting.


5. How did she enjoy shooting for Charm! Children's Couture?

She had a lot of fun. Dana and Anna were great with her so it made the process go smoothly.


6. What was it like for Hailey to work on The Jim Gaffigan Show?

The Jim Gaffigan Show had the best play rooms set up for kids along with snack tables so that was awesome.


7. How was filming on location different from working in a studio?

Filming on location can take place anywhere from a restaurant to a court house. It's a different location each time.


8. What was the experience like filming with Jim Gaffigan?

Hailey didn't get to work directly with Jim Gaffigan. Her scenes were with Ashley Williams.


9. How did Hailey like working with the other kids?

She loved them. They were some of the sweetest kids. In one of the scenes that didn't make the final cut, Hailey was sitting in the living room playing with Caitlin Moeller. Watching them was adorable.


10. Do you have a favorite moment from her time on the show?

Her interacting with other kids were my favorite moments.


We'd like to thank Hailey and her family for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

Jyllina Skye Rodriguez filmed an episode of The Neighbors. She has been seen in multiple commercials, the short film 22 Years and more! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram.










1. What was your time on set like working on The Neighbors?

It was a lot of fun, it was one of the first TV shows I worked on. I was so surprised at all the food they had, I didn't know what to choose first.


2. What was it like filming for Manson Lost Girls?

Dirty! Hahaha the makeup artists put rocks, well...pebbles really, in my hair and put dark brown dirt makeup all over me. They told my dad that my mom wasn't allowed to wash my hair because they needed me to stay dirty. I was on set for seven days and everyday was a different adventure. One day I wore boys underwear and a tank top it was hilarious! We filmed on a beach in Malibu and at Paramount Ranch. I didn't get to watch the whole movie but my mom and dad let me see my scenes.


3. How did you enjoy working on your McDonald's commercial?

I loved everything about it, even the wardrobe fitting, trying on tons of different outfits. I got to represent the purple my little pony and wear purple hair extensions. They had me do some voiceover for them to play during the commercial.


4. What was the best part of working on your Burger King commercial?

The best part was when I was standing by the counter about to tell the cashier my "fake" order and she started doing kung fu. The directors wanted my real reaction so I had no idea that she was going to do that. I was so surprised I started laughing.


5. How do you feel when you see your work air on TV?

I get really excited to finally get to see the finished project. You work so hard to stay true to the vision of the project and to see it all come together its really exciting. I really enjoy watching everyone else's scenes too and seeing those come to life. I filmed a Chevrolet commercial and while I was sitting in a makeup chair the lady next to me was getting her Zombie makeup put on, it was cool to watch her transform and then see her part of the commercial air during the Walking Dead. The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead are two of my favorite shows hehe. During the commercial I got to hold a GINORMOUS bouquet of balloons and I felt like I was going to float away. Every time it aired my grandparents were screaming in their room.


6. What was the experience working on 22 Years?

It's my most memorable experience to date. 22 years is a true story about a young girl who's father leaves after a fight with her mom because he was drinking. She grew up without her dad and now he's reached out to her after 22 years. It's a really sad story. I cried at the end. It was such an honor to be selected to play young Avi and play that moment when her dad leaves.


7. How did you prepare for your role?

I got to meet the cast when we filmed our shots for the movie posters, so I got to spend time and get to know them. I read the script over and over and over again and asked questions to learn more about my characters part. I wanted to know the whole story inside and out, not just my parts. I wanted to understand how it would feel if that was me and my dad had left. I wanted to be sure I was portraying the role the right way. Then, we had the table read before filming and I got to practice my parts with the cast.


8. What was it like attending the Imagen Awards for the film?

It was sooooo exciting! It was my first award show. I got to go inside without my parents, I was with the cast of course, they took great care of me and my parents were right outside. I got to meet one of my favorite actresses Jenna Ortega.


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

Dawn Noel and the cast of 22 years. Dawn is an amazing strong woman and I really look up to her. She is a great role model and works hard at everything she does and achieves.

I got to meet Rosario Dawson on the set of Unforgettable, she is super nice. I ride English (horseback) and I was hired to be in a riding scene. But I really just love making new friends on every set that I'm on. Sometimes those friends stay with you and you get to see them outside of set life and then sometimes you get to see the people you work with out at auditions. It's always fun to recognize people you've worked with on TV.


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

Definitely 22 years! The entire cast is just amazing and stays in touch and is really really supportive. I just finished filming Trust Love with some of the same people from 22 years so it was really nice to see them again plus meet new people. I play young Alice. I also just finished filming The Sonata, it is a very different kind of role for me. I am playing a sick child so it's a pretty serious role. I guess I really love all the characters I get to play, its way to hard to pick just one.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would do this everyday if I could. I really love what I do and I hope I can be a role model one day and help other kids follow their dreams.


We'd like to thank Jyllina for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

To keep up to date make sure to visit their official website, like their page on Facebook, follow them on Twitter and follow them on Instagram.







1. How did A Day in the Life get started?

A Day in the Life started because one day we were running from auditions to music class & then an event. We had a friend of our family with us and he said this is crazy but fun you should tape it. We have so much fun doing all of those things and started filming the whole process for fun to show our friends. Friends & family enjoyed watching so we decided to share it. So, we started putting them up on Friday's and got a lot of views. We are so happy people can watch and enjoy our crazy daily lives that are full of adventures and laughter.


2. What has been your favorite episode to work on so far?

That's a hard one to answer, because they are all really fun. But, just the normal things we do in between work are really examples of how we are as sisters. I think episode Six when we played twin telepathy was really funny.


3. How did you enjoy attending the Trolls premiere?

It was awesome to be at the Trolls premiere. Justin Timberlake was there and the movie was great! We were dancing in our seats the whole time. The sound tract is amazing!!!!!


4. What's a typical day in the studio recording your music?

Recording is a lot of fun. We spend a lot of time reversing the songs before so we are prepared and ready. We work for hours with our coach Marko to learn the songs and then go record them with our producer Luke. Since we actually play the instruments, normally Chiara goes in first to record drums then Bianca on guitar. Vocals we do separately also. We love being in the studio. We love the songs we do and it's great to see others do too :)


5. How do you choose the locations for your cover video shoots?

The locations are usually picked to help theme the songs we are covering. So when we did Saturday Night by Bay City Rollers, we did it at night on Hollywood Boulevard, which was a little scary, but it came out great. Our director, Paul Boyd is awesome and we always want to make sure that you guys see us playing our instruments too, because we hope that some of you get inspired by it to go and learn an instrument too!


6. What was it like filming your music video for That's What Girls Do?

OMG, it was so much fun. We had a ton of friends there for it, our dogs Max and Cali and some awesome friends like Nadia Mejia ( Miss Ca USA 2016, Mace Coronel from the show (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn), Lela B from Radio Disney DJing and the most amazing dancers. We love when we can have friends join us in the videos


7. What do you like best about performing live on stage?

Playing and performing. It's so amazing to look out to the crowd and see your friends supporting you while getting a bunch of strangers excited as well.


8. Do you have a favorite venue you have performed at this year?

Saddle Ranch in Universal Studios has always been awesome, but we also love playing at schools for students. They are our age and we have a lot of fun by having them be part of the show.


9. What was it like attending the Kids Choice Sports Awards and getting slimmed?

Kids Choice is amazing. you get to really celebrate kids and their achievements. you are never too young! Getting slimed is a dream come true...who wouldn't want green slime all over their head LOL


10. What else have you been up to this year?

We just completed an original song that will be released in spring 2017. We have a movie in May 2017 we will be working on and very excited about. Some other projects for TV we can not discuss yet but super excited and of course school!


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you everyone for watching our videos. We have a lot more to come. Learn to play an instrument, adopt a pet and be nice to everyone and never give up on your dreams.

Love Bianca & Chiara

They are so cool at UGG and really relaxed.


7. What is the hardest s part of auditioning?

I get really nervous and shaky before I go in. It's hard when there are lines and I don't want to forget them: it's a lot of pressure and I try to relax by breathing and just have fun.

I always love to meet new friends on set so it's all great! Nate and Sadie were great because they are my age but I loved working with Kendall at Ugg too (she was 4).

UGG was the most recent project and I loved meeting Sadie and hanging out.

GMA was really fun, and it was cool seeing the work studios and make up artists walking around. When I went on set, it was so cool to see the camera people and behind the scenes stuff. The band Forever In your Mind was amazing to see live and I got to meet one of the member's sister & brother. I even passed a band member in the hallway and said hi.


3. What was your time on set like filming for Divorce?

Filming Divorce was really fun & exciting. One of my favorite parts about filming is seeing the behind the scenes, camera people and actors. I saw Sarah Jessica Parker and she was really nice!


4. How did you enjoy filming for Bull?

I enjoyed filming Bull because it was a park scene, and I filmed with my sister. The hair and make up artist kept going around spraying us with water to cool us off, it was a very hot day! There was a BBQ set up and I ate burgers and chips while filming. It was like a fun party!


5. What was your favorite part of working on The Jim Gaffigan Show?

My favorite part of The Jim Gaffigan Show was that is was an all red-headed kids scene. They made us look really dirty because of the scene and we got to play around and be crazy with our pretend family.

There was a brother and sister that I got grouped with while filming The Woody Allen Summer Project. They were from Russia and we had fun together.

Victoria Grace was seen as a singer on The Young and the Restless. Recently she has been busy working on Journey to the East, Famous Love, and more! To keep up to date make sure to like her page on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram.









1. How do you decide which songs to cover on your YouTube channel?

I cover songs that I enjoy listening to at the time. I also consider whether the lyrics are appropriate and if it'd be easy to accompany myself or find a good instrumental.


2. Can we expect new covers from you in the new year?

I hope so. It definitely depends on my work and school schedule, but I think I'll be able to sneak them in there.


3. What was it like attending the Children's Festival?

A ton of fun! The Hollywood Arts Council invites me as a celebrity speaker, so I get interviewed on stage and get to meet so many cute kids. Anyone can attend and take part in the activity booths so I definitely recommend it!


4. What is your favorite screening that you have attended?

I think I have two favorites. I went to a screening for Inside Out, and afterwards got to chat with the director Pete Docter about the whole process behind the movie. I also went to a screening for The Danish Girl, which is such a beautiful movie. There was a Q&A with Eddie Redmayne in which he talked about how he prepared for such a complex role, and I got a picture with him. Those were both very enlightening experiences.


5. Do you have a favorite question you've had answered at a Q&A?

At one of Jackie Chan's Q&As, I asked him about his stunts. He told this exciting story about how the director wanted him to jump off of the roof of a tall building and onto a helicopter ladder. All they had on the ground was a big inflatable cushion, and Jackie thought that the helicopter was too far away but he still went for it. When the take began, Jackie was barely able to grab the ladder and he really thought that he wasn't going to make it. After all that, the director just said, "Great, let's shoot one more!" He ended up doing three more takes. I can't imagine doing something that risky!


6. What was your time on set like filming Journey to the East?

I loved every second of it. My role was Tingting, a mean girl who goes to a Chinese school. It was exciting to play someone completely different from myself, plus it was very interesting filming both an English version and a Chinese version.


7. Who has been your favorite person to work with this year?

It was awesome working with Bella Thorne on Famous in Love. She's such a sweet, down-to-earth person. She kept writing me these little notes on napkins in between takes, it was very cute.


8. What has been your favorite recent project to work on and why?

Definitely Famous in Love! I had a great time working with Norman Buckley and the crew of Pretty Little Liars. Everyone was so professional, focused, and sweet.


9. Is there anything you can share about your role in Famous in Love?

I'll be appearing in the second episode. I guess you could say my character presents a major turning point in Bella Thorne's story line.


10. What else have you been up to this year?

I actually skipped a year of school, so I've been working hard to graduate a whole year early. I've also been having meetings with some producers from Shanghai for an interesting project, so we'll see if it works out!

1. Where is your favorite place to audition at?

I like to audition in friendly environments.


2. What is one of the coolest things you have gotten to do in an audition this year?

Playing violin and piano.


3. If you had to choose between playing the violin or singing the rest of her life, which would you choose and why?

I would choose both, because I am capable of playing violin and singing at the same time. I also can play piano and sing at the same time.


4. What inspired you to start playing the violin?

I started learning music when I was 9 months old, so I grew up with music and my great uncles played violin. One of them, Farhat Hachem, had his own conservatory and invented the 6th and 7th strings of the lute. My other great uncle, Jim Pokorzynski makes guitars. They inspired me to play the violin.


5. Do you have a favorite song to play?

I like to play and sing Adele's song Someone Like You on the piano.
On the violin I like to play Star War's theme song.


6. If you could collaborate with anyone musically who would it be?

I would like to play violin, sing, and play piano with Jacky Evancho, Celine Dion, and Adele.


7. What was it like filming your music video for I Love Horses?

It was an amazing and stinky experience. You won't believe how smelly horses can be. The horses were very gentle, although in the sunset scene for the music video, the horse kept sneezing on me.


8. How do you choose who else to feature in your music videos?

The producer and director audition talents according to the story board. We then choose from the choices the producer and director give us


9. How long does it take to go from beginning to plan your music videos to filming them?

It takes up to a year.


10. What else have you been up to this year?

I am actually composing and writing my own song at the moment.

I am looking forward to sharing more projects with you. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

1. What was the experience like attending the Yo-Kai Preview event?

That was my first event as a Nintendo Brand Ambassador and having that title is such an honor. Being part of the media events like YoKai Watch 2 and vlogging for my YouTube show KawaiiHappii is a dream come true. Being able to bring along my friends and viewers to the Nintendo experience is so much fun.


2. How did you enjoy attending the Tiger Beat pre-party for the Teen Choice Awards?

The Tiger Beat party was great but any time I can go to with my squad it's just that much better! There was cotton candy, I love cotton candy LOL and also a lot of friends that I don't always get to see, so that always makes an already fun event, that much better!


3. What was your time on set like working on Let Go?

I played a ghost in an old church! I always wanted to play a ghost so I got to check that off the bucket list!


4. What is one of the coolest things you have done in an audition this year?

I had some great singing/acting auditions that I can't really talk about in detail but I love it when I get to do both things in an audition.


5. What inspired you to create KawaiiHappii?

I have wanted to be a YouTuber for quite sometime, and I'm pretty weird lol. I have some unique interests, Japan, Anime, KPOP, comedy, and gaming. I decide that if I was going to create a channel it had to be about the things I love with my friends- Benjamin Stockham, Izzy Eggerling, my sister Marlowe Peyton and my boyfriend Jacob Hopkins. They are all so supportive, I could not do it without them!


6. How did you react when you found out you're now a Nintendo Ambassador?

I kinda screamed and was in complete shock! Being a Nintendo Brand Ambassador is crazy cool, to able to be a part of a brand I love so much, I still can't believe it sometimes. It's also super exciting to get pre releases of the games since I'm a huge gamer!


7. What has been the coolest part of the role?

A lot of things, but I think being considered as a media outlet and getting the first scoop at media events alongside some pretty major influencers is mind blowing for me!


8. Do you have a favorite video game you have played this year?

I really love YoKai Watch 2 it's super engaging and adorable! I'm also a big Overwatch player!


9. What has been one of the funniest things to happen while filming your web series?

I think the funniest stuff is all the mistakes that happen which we just leave in the show. I laugh all the time making these episodes with this gang, they are just such funny people. I also had a blast vlogging Jacob, Ben and Izzy at their first convention's ever from AnimeExpo, WonderCon!


10. What can viewers look forward to next year for KawaiiHappii?

Sofia Naccarato appeared in episodes of The Young and the Restless at Halloween. This year she has been seen in commercials for Dish Network, Walmart, and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit her official website, like her page on Facebook and follow her on Instagram.









1. What was your time on set like filming your Dish Network commercials?

It was a lot of fun, but also a LOT of work. There was a lot of physical comedy, and just getting around in those pants was tricky. We were tired and sweating after filming each day.


2. Do you have a favorite one that you worked on?

We shot all 3 dish spots in one week. I think the one where we all had to walk in the pants together was super fun.


3. What was the best part of filming your Walmart commercial?

Eating all the watermelon! I love watermelon and I think we went through two entire large ones.


4. How did you enjoy working for Dick's Sporting Goods back to school ads?

That was great because it was shot mostly outdoors at a school that is actually really close to my house. Playing basketball with Zaire (the boy in the ads with me) was great - he's really good!


5. Which do you enjoy to work on more theatrical, commercial or print?

I am really lucky to be able to do all of it, but my absolute love is live theatre.


6. Do you have a favorite play you've been able to work on?

This season I am playing Laura Ingalls in the Sierra Madre Playhouse production of A Little House Christmas. It's been an amazing experience.


7. What was a typical day like rehearsing for A Little House Christmas?

We rehearsed 6 days a week in the evenings for about 8 weeks. It was very professional and I learned a lot from the director, Alison Kalmus.


8. What was opening night like?

It was exciting and a little nerve-wracking because it was the first time that I knew there would be critics in the audience.


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

I have been so blessed to have worked on a bunch of projects with amazing people. The entire Little House cast and crew have become like a second family. I also really enjoyed working with Justine Renee on her short film, Beyond Approval.


10. What has been your favorite project to do this year and why?

Little House has been probably the most difficult work but also the most rewarding because it's live theatre - there's just nothing quite like performing for a different audience week to week and seeing how the show grows into something just a little different each time.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you so much for including me! It's always fun to look back over the year and reflect on all the good times!

Dylan Mueller did an episode of season two of The Jim Gaffigan Show and is the older brother of Declan who played Joseph. To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.










1. How did you get started in the industry?

When my brother Declan was first being recruited and signing with an agency, I was in one of the pictures they asked my mother to send them and the agency representative noticed me and asked my mother if I was interested in signing too. I have never really gone "all out" in terms of trying to make it in the industry, but it has been cool to have gone to auditions on occasion and get to see how things work.


2. How did you react to being cast in a production of Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory?

I was proud. I was actually a little surprised they gave me such a good role!


3. What was rehearsal like?

I'm a cross country runner and a wrestler and I also play cello, all things that take a lot of practice. It was interesting to go through the theater rehearsal process because it was so similar to practices for those other activities in that it was fun but also tiring and difficult. Repetition leads to success.


4. Were you nervous at all on opening night?

SO nervous!


5. What was your favorite part of the show?

There was one part of the show where I had a very brief solo. Even though it was the part that made me the most nervous, it was also the most exciting and I was glad after each time it was over with!


6. What was your experience like working on The Jim Gaffigan Show?

A few things. First of all, it was so cool to be where my brother worked. He was so little and acted so well and everyone liked him. I was really proud to be his brother and be on set. Second, everyone was so nice there, from the actors to the extras to the people behind the scenes. Third, the first time I went was for the filming of the episode in the American Museum of Natural History. It is such a huge, famous, busy place that filming was done overnights after the museum was closed to the public for the day and it was really interesting to be there after hours- a real-life Night at the Museum. Fourth, it was just so interesting to be around all the people who make the show and the real cameras, microphones and heavy equipment. Last, it was also interesting to see how much time and effort goes into just a few seconds of what we see on television. They really work hard and make sure everything is perfect.


7. How did you like seeing yourself on television?

Even though there were only a bunch of glimpses of me, it is really hard to describe that feeling in words. It was pretty amazing.


8. If you could do any other project with your brother what would it be?

I would love to be able to work on something in which Declan and I play brothers- or at least best friends.





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

Jim Gaffigan. Here was this guy who the show is named after, he is involved in every single part of making the show, his whole family is there, it's the middle of the night- yet here he was chatting with me and being friendly. I thought that was really cool.


10. If you could work on any project next year what would it be?

I would love the opportunity to get to do some voice-over work. I think that is a strength of mine and also an interest, so I would really love the opportunity to be the voice on a commercial or of a cartoon character.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Not really, just thanks for always being nice to me and my brother and we hope everyone enjoys their holidays.

I love working for Jakks Pacific, they are so good to me. They always have great costumes to be photographed in. Jakks and I actually teamed up, they donated several boxes and toys to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. I took them on behalf of myself and Jakks. CHLA has a special place in my heart because my baby brother was hospitalized for several weeks. Any chance I have to give back when the opportunity comes, I'm happy to.


5. How did you enjoy shooting for Disguise Costumes?

Shooting for Disguise was my very first print job and I was so nervous. The crew was very supportive and after I found out I was dressing as Vanellope Von Schweets, I was too excited to be nervous.


6. What was your shoot for Home Away like?

Shooting for Home Away was a bit crazy, I was the only child on set and in the last scene the producer asked for everyone to have a food fight and I didn't like it too much because I was so little and got hit with everybody's food. We all laughed about it in the end, but I definitely needed a shower after we wrapped.


7. What was your experience like working on The Young and the Restless?

Working for The Young and the Restless was my first time working for a very large studio set on such a well known and respected show. I learned so many new things and met some great people that I will never forget.


8. How did you feel seeing yourself on TV?

I thought it was really cool to see myself on TV for the first time. I still get excited because I know I worked hard to make it happen.


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

I've had the opportunity to work with so many great actors, but a couple of my favorites are my buddy Isaac Ordonez and Miles Gaston Villanueva.


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

My ultimate favorite project was working on Aquarium of the Pacific. I was able to work with my brother as my casted brother. After we wrapped the shoot we were able to tour the park for the rest of the day.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I just want to encourage anyone who is trying to get into the business to never give up. Follow your heart and dreams but never lose your morals. I Thank God for every opportunity I have.

Anthony Stegner appeared in the second season of The Jim Gaffigan Show. He has shot for Toys R Us, worked on the series Falling Water and more! To keep up to date make sure to like his management's page on Facebook and check back here at the site.








1. How did you get started in the industry?

After many people including strangers suggested to my parents, I would be a good fit for the industry, my parents talk to friends and got some great recommendations.


2. What was your first booking?

My first booking was fit modeling for Gap. They tailored a suit using my measurements. I love the ladies I worked with Gap.


3. What is the hardest part of doing fit modeling?

I enjoyed fit modeling. I tried on lots of cloths, and played in a room with lots of toys. There were many people in the room, watching how the cloths moved on my body. There really wasn't any hard part, but if I had to pick one, it would be changing cloths multiple times in a session.


4. If you could work on any project with your sister what would it be?

I recently worked on the Jim Gaffigan show, with a dozen kids. I would like to do a show like that again, and have my sister involved with it.


5. What is your favorite part of auditioning?

Traveling to NYC, is very exciting. I love meeting new people and seeing different parts of the city. If I continue to stay in this industry, I would love to live in NYC.


6. How did you enjoy shooting for the Toys R Us Big Book?

Shooting the TRU Big Book, was so fun. I got to be dressed as one of my favorite characters, Darth Vader, and play with the new light saber. Pretty much any 6 1/2 year olds dream. The set was decorated for Christmas, and Christmas is one of my favorite times of year, so naturally I was excited and had a blast!


7. What was your experience like working on The Jim Gaffigan Show?

So fun! There were so many kids on set that day, and we all played duck-duck-goose in between takes. The makeup people put fake dirt on all of us kids. I remember we all were so excited about that, we ran over to the mirror to see how we all looked with our fake dirty faces. Jim Gaffigan, was so nice, as was everyone on set.


8. What was it like filming with all the other kids?

We all loved it, it was a really fun day on set. Loud at times, but we all smiled all day.


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

Jim Gaffigan was great to work with and also Lizzie Brochere on Falling Water was great to work with. They all helped me so much on set, and I learned so much from each of them.


10. Is there anything you can share about your role in Falling Water?

Unfortunately, I can not share anything about Falling Water. I wouldn't want to ruined it for the fans. The writers for Falling Water, have done such a great job. I would be sad if I ruined it for them. But I will tell you, the restaurant Marcello's, which is in almost every episode, was not a real restaurant, it was part of the set.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Yes, I want to thank the great staff at CP Talent for helping me live my dreams. I want to thank my parents for their support, and a big thank you for my Nanna, and Grandma for helping me on and off set.

1. How did you get started in the industry?

I have twin friends who I watched start off in the industry with CP Talent as babies, so just before my 4th Birthday, they convinced me to go to CP Talent's open call.


2. What was your shoot for Toys R Us like?

It was so much fun! It was like Christmas in July! Walking in to see Christmas gifts set up all over the place, and then my turn to try out and play with a new toy was so much fun! The staff was amazingly nice too!


3. How did you react seeing yourself in the Big Book?

I was surprised! My Aunt called to tell me she found me in The Big Book a few days before we anticipated the arrival of The Big Book! She took pictures for us and then we patiently waited to get our hands on a Big Book! It was so much fun to see!


4. What did your friends and family say?

My family was so proud and impressed! My Grandmother Mimi kept opening up ever magazine in Toys R Us and showing all of the employees there! And then she'd show off my page to anyone who gave her the time!

My teacher at school copied the page and hung it all over my classroom and in the hallway outside my classroom for everyone to see! All of my friends loved seeing it!


5. What is the best part of auditioning?

Meeting new kids and friends, and playing together as we wait!


6. What is one of the funniest things to happen on or off set at a shoot?

My mom took me up to the top of the Empire State Building after an audition in NYC!

Working on The Jim Gaffigan Show was so much fun! It was easy, well organized, and all of the staff was so nice! There were tons of other kids there and we had fun in hair and make up and wardrobe while waiting for our scene. Then we all got to continue having fun together when it was time to film our scene!


8. How did you feel seeing your episode air on TV?

I was shocked and couldn't figure out how I was on tv! I remembered filming it, but didn't realize I'd see myself on tv! I kept asking my Mommy and Daddy to rewind it so I could watch over and over!

Jim Gaffigan and his wife and kids!


10. If you could work on any project next year, what would it be?

Jonathan Tysor was seen in an episode of Days of Our Lives. This year he can be seen in A Doggone Christmas, Nessie & Me, a commercial for Target and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, like his page on Facebook, follow him on Twitter, and follow him on Instagram.






1. What was your experience like filming A Doggone Christmas?

I love being on set filming and it was awesome to see some of the cast from Nessie & Me again. I also made some new friends. There are some fun scenes in this movie and we sure had fun filming it. I'm part of a group of kids who tries to save this awesome and very special dog and we get chased by special agents using a drone and helicopter. In one scene we all biked down this big, grassy hill - I think my mom closed her eyes when we filmed that scene. There's also this really cool treehouse in the movie. Well, I don't want to give away too much...go see it, it's out on DVD and on iTunes now!





2. How did you enjoy your shoot for Old Navy?

This year I've done four shoots for Old Navy - two in San Francisco, one in LA in a studio and one on location in Malibu. I love working with them and always have a blast with their wranglers, studio teachers and crew. One of my SF shoots was for two days so I got to stay at a hotel and hang out a little in the city which is always cool.





3. What is it like seeing your image up in stores?

It's pretty cool :)


4. What was your Lands' End shoot like?

It was cold! The theme was summer camp but we shot it in January at one of the movie ranches in Santa Clarita. The photographer, Daymion Mardel had to wear a wetsuit and was in the lake for a canoe photo. I also got to test to shoot a bow and arrow at that job. As you can see from the images it was a lot of goofiness and fun going on! My kind of day!





5. How did you enjoy filming your Target commercial?

Filming the Target commercial felt very cartoonish, like I was in a Dr. Seuss book on the set! Everything was covered in paper.


6. What was the best part of shooting your Mini Maven editorial?

That was a while ago (last year). Love the photographer, Zoe Berkovic. This was out in the desert in Twenty Nine Palms and all western themed. I got to wear some pretty awesome clothes and it was cool to make the cover!


7. What was your time on set like filming Nessie & Me?

This was my first feature film experience. We filmed up in Santa Clarita at a big ranch there last December. Definitely a fun time and I made some awesome friends on set. I also got to eat glazed donuts for breakfast :)





8. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with this year?

I've worked with so many cool people this year. The returning cast and crew from Nessie & Me and the Doggone Movies are awesome and have become friends.


9. What has been your favorite project to do this year and why?

The Doggone movies and one of the San Francisco Old Navy shoots.


10. Is there anything you can share about your upcoming film A Doggone Hollywood?

I had to learn how to yo-yo for this role, something I didn't know before but have become pretty good at! My favorite scene is probably the zip line adventure. A lot of it was filmed on green screen but it was still awesome. I still managed to yo-yo while zip-lining and holding a big cake box! I also got to eat a lot of pies and sweets (props)!


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I started middle school this year (7th grade) and one of my electives is of course drama. I'm in the school production of Annie where I play Mr. Bundles (as well as a few other roles). This year I've also filmed for Hot Wheels, in addition to Nessie & Me and the two Doggone movies I also had a small part in another feature film.


We'd like to thank Jonathan for participating in this year's Holiday Q&A Event!

Jamie and Alister Tobias play the role of Christian Newman on The Young and The Restless. The boys have also seen in episodes of American Horror Story and Shameless. To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.








1. What was the audition process like for The Young and the Restless?

It was our first audition, and they were really little. At the casting office the babies were both asleep in their car seats in the stroller. The casting director asked me a few questions, and the casting associate videotaped them sleeping in their seats. I didn't have to get them out or wake them up.


2. How did you react when you found out they booked?

I was pretty excited; EVERYONE knows "The Young and the Restless". Even if you don't watch it, someone close to you does, works with someone who does, etc. So it was exciting for us and our extended family.


3. What was Jamie and Alister's first day on set like?

We got there early because I was afraid we wouldn't be able to find our way around the studio. But the baby nurse and the studio teacher were already looking for us. The baby nurse changed them and put them into their wardrobe. Then we just held the babies for a little bit, they were both sleepy or asleep. The stage manager came up to get us pretty much right away and the nurse suggested which baby we should take down to set. I remember being very nervous, walking a sleeping baby through a studio and putting him in a bassinet. But then they called action, the nurse said her lines and then he woke up calmly and looked right at the camera. That was it: five minutes and we were done.


4. How did it feel watching them in their first episode on TV?

It was great. I thought he looked adorable.


5. What has the experience been like for Jamie and Alister to film for The Young and the Restless?

It's like a family, everyone is so friendly, so loving to the babies.The cast and the crew, both. Honestly, it is such a great job it has kind of spoiled us. We have done jobs where it feels almost like your baby is a prop, it has never, ever been like that at Y&R.


6. How did the boys like filming with Kelly Sullivan?

They definitely bonded. We didn't get as much time with her as I thought we might, but they had some really interesting scenes with her, especially at the end. On our last day with her, she came by their dressing room and said how great it was working with the babies, and gave us all big hugs and kisses.


7. What is it like working with Sharon Case?

Wonderful! Sharon is so sweet and great with the babies. They aren't really old enough to watch TV yet, but if I have an episode on and Sharon appears, they will definitely stop and watch her, point to the screen. They have even pointed to her photo in the Y&R office. It's very cute, and they obviously attached to her.


8. What is the best part of filming with Alyvia Alyn Lind?

Everything is great about working with her. She's young but incredibly poised and professional. And she is just a very sweet person. Our dressing room is next to hers and she always comes over and plays with the babies before they go on. She is just very natural and sisterly, on camera and off.


9. How have the boys enjoyed working with Steve Burton?

Very much. Steve was instantly comfortable with the babies, always knew what to do to calm them or settle them if they started getting fussy or antsy in a scene. You can just tell he really likes kids. I especially loved when they went camping- they have had a lot of great bonding times. It was very, very emotional to film the scenes where Dylan finds out Sully is Christian. There were one or two days on set where I would take back the baby at the end of the scene with tears in my eyes. You could really feel what his character was going through.


10. Do you have a favorite episode the boys have got to film?

I have liked a lot of the episodes they've done since the second reveal. I really liked the day Nick confronts Sharon. The actors have to do almost everything right in that first take, so whatever the baby is going to do, they have to make it work. They did one scene in the nursery where Nick is holding Christian for the first time and the baby started to reach for Sharon. And it wasn't planned- but Sharon instinctively reaches back for "her" son and Nick just snatches the baby away from her in this protective gesture. And watching that episode on TV was great. It was so much story and history in that moment.

1. How did you get started in the industry?

I was at a print casting and on our way out a lady with a clipboard asked if we were there for the TV commercial casting; I saw a few girls who looked similar to age and look as Elle so I said yes! and that was my 1st booking and then I signed with an agency!


2. What was the best part of filming The Haunting Of?

My transformation to a really creepy ghost girl. The make up process was so intense - those TV make up people really can make anything look believable.


3. How did you enjoy shooting for Quaker?

It was awesome. It was during cold weather holidays at a huge house in Greenwich, CT. They had the fireplace going and were drinking hot cocoa which was so festive and cozy. Also there was an adorable actor cat.


4. What was your time on set like working on DoDo TiTi?

It was intense, hard work, great experience and fun too. The entire cast and crew lived all together in a big house with huge backyard in Jackson, NJ. The assistant producers were making grocery runs for my favorite snacks and breakfast items like fruit loops, pizza and ice cream - how nutritious! LOL


5. How did you prepare for playing Christy?

We had several rehearsals with cast and director before the actual shoot so we got to know each other and the director gave me some things to think about with my character. She also took some of the choices that I made for her and really tried to incorporate them into her direction.

I got to go to a bunch of screenings and parties - I felt grown up.


7. What was your experience like working on The Jim Gaffigan Show?

Kyle Red Silverstein is Lily Mae Silverstein's brother. He has been seen on Grey's Anatomy, in the film Blended, and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, and follow him on Twitter and Instagram.









1. What was your time on set like filming Instant Mom?

Instant Mom was a truly different experience because it was my first time working in front of a live audience. This was really cool because I could really see and feel the reaction from the audience. This gave me validation that my acting was funny and people enjoyed our performances.


2. What was it like filming your episodes of Grey's Anatomy?

Grey's Anatomy was great. I played the role Ethan and was the only kid on set for 6 continuous episodes. The cast and crew treated me great and I never felt out of place. Kevin McKidd (Dr. Hunt) has kids around my age. He truly had fun with me and treated me like one of his own.


3. How did you prepare for the role?

To prepare for the role of Ethan, whose parents were in a car accident, I just thought of my mom who had surgery on the same day as my audition. I thought of my mom having complication with the surgery and it truly helped me performance. (My mom was fine by the way!)


4. What was the best part of working with Kevin McKidd?

Kevin McKidd is so friendly and gives great acting advice. We'd play soccer in between takes.


5. How did you enjoy working with Jennifer Bassey?

Jennifer Bassey can really cry! She let me in on her technique for crying -- think of a lost pet!


6. What was the experience like going to Africa to film Blended?

Working in South Africa on Blend was truly a blessing. It was one of the coolest places I've ever been. While shooting Blended, I became aware of the devastating poaching problem in South Africa. When I got back to the States, I started working with the Los Angeles Zookeepers Association to help raise awareness about Rhino poaching around the world. Is truly sad to know that these magnificent animals are being killed for their horns. This summer, I had the opportunity to work with Paul Blackthorne on a movie called Daisy Winters. He too is helping support the "Stop Rhino Poaching" movement. The more people we tell about this travesty the more likely we are to stop it.


7. How did you enjoy working with Drew Berrymore?

8. What was it like filming with Adam Sandler?

9. Do you have any funny stories from the set you can share?

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler were fantastic to work with. When you send 3 months together you become really comfortable with one another. Drew would accidentally say bad word and she started a "swear jar" for herself (didn't really help!) and Adam was cracking jokes everyday. I think he unintentionally gave me a full semester of SEX ED in 6th grade.


10. Do you have a favorite job you've done?

My favorite job was Blended. I just wish that Pokemon Go was created before Blended started filming -- I would have caught a crap ton of Pokemon in South Africa!


We'd like to thank Kyle for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

1. How did Eli and Ilee get started in the industry?

Eli and Ilee started in the industry thanks to Zuri Model and Talent. I submitted pictures of them and I received a response that the agency was interested.


2. What was the experience like working on NCIS?

It was very exciting to see them for the first time on tv. We waited anxiously for the episode to air.


3. How did you react when you found out they booked General Hospital?

I was at work and yelled my heart out, "Oh my God, you're kidding me!"


4. What was Eli and Ilee's experience like filming at General Hospital?

It was great! Everyone was very welcoming. Everyone treated the boys with love.


5. What was it like working with Teresa Castillo?

It was a wonderful. She made us feel like the boys had two moms. She was always very careful with them.


6. How did the boys enjoy working with Chad Duell?

I believe the boys had a good time with Chad Duell. They were very comfortable with him.


7. What was it like filming with Jane Elliott?

Amazing! She had lots of fun with the boys. She would always ask if she was holding Eli or Ilee because they looked the same to her.


8. Were there any funny moments to happen while the boys were on set?

During one occasion, Jane Elliot was so focused on playing with one of the boys she forgot her lines.


9. Is there anyone you wish they had a chance to work with?

It would be awesome if they had the chance to work with Ellen DeGeneres or Steve Harvey because of their great sense of humor.


10. What is your favorite scene that they did for GH?

My favorite scene was when Sabrina reunited with Teddy. Teresa did a wonderful job portraying a mother who missed her child for so long and all she wanted was to have him in her arms again.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you for this great opportunity and thank you for supporting my boys.

Liam Dow played the role of Bobbie on Days of Our Lives this year. He has also been seen on OMG!, Idiottest, and more. To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, like his page on Facebook, and follow him on Twitter and Instagram.








1. How did you get started acting?

I never really started acting, I more so fell into acting. When I was around 3 my sister and brother would have me be in the community theatre shows they were in and I kept doing that, being in such shows as "The Wizard of Oz", "Schooled", and "The Little Mermaid" until around 3 years ago, when I asked if we could go to California to pursue acting at a higher level and that's when all this had begun.


2. What was your first booking?

The first show I was ever in was called "Children of Eden", where I played small roles like a spider, turtle, and a small towns kid. But the first show I was in when I moved to L.A. was OMG's "Just Jacque" where I played Steve.


3. What is the best part of auditioning?

The feeling you get about being on the show or movie. You are walking into a room where you show these people who you are and how much you want to be an actor. You get to become someone different who you probably would have never thought of being whether it's a drama or a comedy, you become someone new.


4. How did filming Idiotest compare to filming a scripted series?

I really enjoyed "Idiot Test", but over all I have much more fun with scripted series because on "Idiot Test", if you say something it's in the episode, nothing you can do about it, but on scripted series if you mess up you can retake it, have another chance to do what you feel, what wanted to do.


5. What was it like filming for OMG!?

It was lot of fun, I really enjoyed how high energy it was and all the people I meet got meet were amazing. One of my favorite parts about filming was talking with the director.


6. What is the most challenging part of doing live theatre?

Not messing up.


7. How long do you typically rehearse for a show before opening night?

It really depends on how long it is. A short show can take 3-4 weeks while a longer show can take a couple months. Normally 4-8 hours a day.


8. What was your experience like working on Days of Our Lives?

It was very interesting. The moment the director yelled action you could really feel the room stand still and you could tell the tension was high. I really got into the scene and before I new it, it was done.


9. What was it like filming with Kyler Pettis?

He was an awesome guy. He was very friendly and is a really good actor. I was really glad I got to meet him!


10. Do you have a favorite project you've gotten to work on this year?

Definitely "Days of Our Lives", had been wanting a more dramatic role and when I was finally there I was just having so much fun. I felt like my first real experience on a set.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Come see me on December 7th at House of Secrets 1930 W Olive Ave, Burbank, CA 91506 from 4 to 6, where I will be signing a comic book I wrote and created called "The Adventures of The Gray Hat Hacker!" More information is at www.thegrayhathacker.com!

Devin Weaver is the older sister of TK Weaver from General Hospital. She can currently be seen in a commercial for Spinmaster's Brightlings toys and keep an eye out for her Hasbro displays in Toys R Us stores! To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Instagram.







1. How did you get started acting?

When I was 5 I told my parents that I wanted to be in acting classes. I never wanted to stop them so I got an agent and have been auditioning for about a year and a half.


2. What was your shoot for your Hasbro commercial like?

It was a lot of fun. They loved my moves on the bed so I was given the comedic part of the commercial. There was supposed to be more stuff but we ran out of time since we filmed last that day. :)


3. How did you react seeing it air on TV for the first time?

I was super excited! It took about 6 months to air so I wasn't sure if/when it might finally air.


4. What has it been like seeing your photo used on Hasbro displays in stores?

It's been the best! Friends from all over the US have spotted my picture. I got lucky they have used my picture so much.


5. What was your time on set like filming for your Spinmaster commercial?

This one was fun too. We really had a good time. Jordan Barker the director was super nice and fun to work with. Plus it's always fun filming with new and old friends.


6. Do you have a favorite part of auditioning?

Well you never know what to expect in an audition. My favorite auditions are the ones where I am allowed to dance. Those are the most fun!


7. What was the experience like filming your Barbie demo video?

That director was super nice too. Olivier at Mattel is one of my favs. I liked doing that one because I was doing it on my own so it was all on me. The crew was super cute. We all danced on set the whole time. Plus I absolutely LOVE Barbie!!


8. Have you gone to the GH studio with TK? If so, what was it like?

I went when he auditioned but that was in the offices above. I did go one other time when he had a fitting and from what I saw it was kind of like a real hospital only the rooms were used for different things. It was cool to see.


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

I have my favorite directors and friends to work with but I usually make friends pretty easily on sets. I really like the people at Mattel and Spin Master. They are all super nice and positive.


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

This is a tough question. I'm going to say the Spin Master Brightlings because I was selling this doll since the Sizzle Reel so I really hoped it did well. Also Hasbro using my face so often with different games and on their websites has been super flattering so that is a close second.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thanks for asking! Look for me in an upcoming Spin Master Chubby Puppies commercial and some more little commercials/projects soon!!

24 Days 'Til Christmas!
Our Holiday Q&A Event for 2016 has begun! Check back each day from now until Dec. 25th for Q&As with many of the kids featured here on the website and their families. They have had a lot of fun answering your questions, talking about the shows and projects they have worked on, and now it is time to count down through the holiday season. Kicking things off is our Q&A with Lily Mae Silverstein!







Lily Mae Silverstein appeared in the second season of Parenthood. She has been seen on Deadtime Stories, Bunk'd, and in multiple commercials. To keep up to date make sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram.









1. How did you enjoy shooting for Maevey Blue?

I barely remember because I was just a little kid. Our neighbor is the clothing designer and she dressed me up and we went to a park and took pictures. What a great playdate.


2. What was your time on set like filming for Parenthood?

3. How did you like filming with Joy Bryant?

4. What was it like working with Dax Shepard?

2. 3. & 4. It was so much fun. Tyree Brown and I played with pointer fingers on a stick and put them through our sleeves of our jackets and pretended they were our real hands. The cast really got a kick out of us...we really made Joy and Dax laugh.


5. What was the experience like working on Chevy?

My experience working on Chevy was amazing. I started out auditioning for the role of the daughter (Hope) that Grace Kaufman was amazing at. The creator, Brad Copeland kept bringing me back for auditions because he thought I was really funny but too young to play Hope. He wrote me into the pilot as Summer the neighbor girl. I'll always be grateful to Brad for giving me the opportunity to be on the show.


6. Did you get to work with Chevy Chase?

Yeah I got to work with Chevy Chase. We were in a backyard party scene together. No a lot of interaction but good guy all the same.

The Napa Auto Parts commercial was a great experience because the director allowed me to do new things...a lot of ad lib!


8. What was filming OowieWanna like?

Oowie Wanna was a short film written and directed by Bridget Palardy as part of a American Film Institute - Women in Film project. My first short film. Bridget was able to get the late Karen Black to be in it with me. Karen is a Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee and she was MY email friend! I truly got to work with a Hollywood legend. She gave me advice like the best colors to wear and how she prepares for her scenes.


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

The best part of seeing myself on television is the opportunity to correct myself and look for different ways I could have made the scene better. I'm always looking for ways to improve -- to be the best actor I can be.


10. Do you have a favorite project that you have done?

My favorite project so far is Bunk'd - the season 2 premiere. It was my first time working on the show (I've shot a total of 5 episodes so far). The regular cast was getting together for the first time in months. The energy was incredible and the main cast was so welcoming and included me in their daily off camera activities. I truly love them all! The season premiere aired on Tuesday, Aug. 23 on Disney Channel. Tune-in...I'm sure you'll enjoy the show!!


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I shot a commercial campaign for CenturyLink with Paul Giamatti. I was part of a 4 person family that tries to give Paul tips on how to be a better actor. The 5 of us would go into a room to rehearse the commercials. We laughed so hard my sides hurt. FUNNY, FUNNY PEOPLE!!!!


We'd like to thank Lily for participating in our Holiday Q&A Event!

To keep up to date make sure to visit her official website, like her page on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and follow her on Instagram.








1. What was it like shooting for Toys R Us?

Toys R Us was great! I loved being back shooting with them it had been a little while. They are always super fun and the crew is great! I got to play with some friends, bounce and get wet on a super duper huge bouncy water slide :D


2. What was your time on set like filming your Adoption PSA?

I liked it a lot because I got to come up with my own answers. They would give me questions and I would think Hmmmm How would I feel?? I also got to color and make pictures of some of the questions they asked me. I like being challenged & creative so it was a lot of fun for me.


3. How did you enjoy shooting for BNY Mellon?

For this shoot I had my first ever Skype meeting. Since this was a direct book the Director and Producer wanted to have a meeting via Skype a few days prior to the shoot. That was a neat experience. The shoot itself was great! I got to wear a tutu and pretend to have a dance recital. I was able to use my acting range which I LOVED. The director kept saying to me he was amazed about how I would talk to him about the scenes and understand what he wanted and just do it. He kept saying are you sure you are only 6? Lol I really liked working with them. Did I mention they let me keep the tutu??


4. What was the best part of filming for Kodak?

This was definitely an experience unlike any other.


5. Do you have a favorite outfit you got to shoot for Boscovs this year?

They always give me the cutest outfits to model. If I had to choose a favorite look from this past year it would be the recent shoot I did. They did something fun and new with my hair and I really liked it. You haven't seen it yet but the Blue puffy jacket I modeled in that shoot I would say was my favorite. Stay tuned...


6. How did you enjoy shooting with Olesja Mueller?

Olesja is soooooo much FUN!!! She makes you feel very at ease. She likes to tell jokes, play guessing games and more while you are shooting. She has a great energy about her. I hope to shoot with her again someday.


7. What was your shoot for Ritz Crackers like?

I got to eat a bazillion peanut butter and jelly cracker sandwiches and be silly. I also had a dance party with the director it was so much fun!


8. Is there anything you share about your role on Law of Perdition?

Chloe is the granddaughter of the Detective Petrowski. She is a little unruly because her mom doesn't really discipline her much. Chloe, her mom and grandfather have weekly breakfast dates. I am slated for 4 seasons which we are very excited about. It starts February 2017 on Amazon Prime.


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

This is a very hard question. I have worked with so many amazing people each presenting their own uniqueness. Many who have become great friends and an amazing part of my network.


10. What has been your favorite job to work on this year?

Another tough question. I think every job has been my favorite!! But I can say one of the most exciting is to have a recurring role on a series.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who keeps up with me at www.facebook.com/AaralynAndersonFanPage I read every single comment and always appreciate the kind words and support. I also want to say a HUGE thank you to my manager Colette of CP Talent. She always has my best interest in mind as well as all the CP Kids and families. She works really hard to help me achieve my goals. The opportunities presented to me this past year have been amazing. I have auditioned for major TV shows and feature films that without her wouldn't otherwise have been possible. I would like to also acknowledge Renee of Click whom I work with in Philly. She is always keeping me in mind for the perfect castings for my look and size. Many of the opportunities are direct books with clients who work directly with her and I very much appreciate that. And lastly, Star Kidz you are always looking out for me and the other kids in the biz. Without you many of us would never see our work. You are an amazing asset & support system to us kids in the biz and I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU!!!


We'd like to thank Aaralyn for participating in our November Q&A series!

November Q&A Event - Hunter Payton




Hunter Payton is a young actor from the Los Angeles area. He has recently been seen on Criminal Minds, America's Got Talent and held a recurring role on A to Z! To keep up to date make sure to like his page on Facebook and follow him on Twitter and Instagram.








1.How did you get started acting?

Since I was really young I have always liked to act and perform making people laugh and smile. When I was 2 years old, I won a baby pageant by walking on stage dancing and making funny faces at the judges and they laughed. When I was 5, I modeled and would dance on the runway and make people laugh so my mom new I would eventually act. At 6 years old, my family and I were approached at a street fair by an acting school to come take some classes. My mom was at first very hesitant, but after the school spoke to me they offered me a free month to come and try it out. I ended up loving it and I have been acting ever since.


2.What was your time on set like filming Ominous?

My time on set with Ominous was great because it was my first horror movie I had ever done. At first I was really nervous that I would get scared while filming because I had read the script and it had some pretty scary scenes. But then after being on set I learned that everything is mostly done with CGI so it was really cool to see how it is done. Best part was getting to see the movie at a private screening before it aired on TV and seeing how it all came together.


3.What was your first day on set like for A to Z?

My first day on set was really exciting because for the pilot, the scene I was in was based on one of my favorite movies, Back to the Future. Funny thing happened while we were on set was the writer came up to my mom asking about me saying he thought I was really doing a great job and a good addition to the show. So, my mom said as a joke "if you like him, you should write him into the rest of the season." Funny thing is he thought that was a great idea and the writer ended up writing several more flashbacks giving me a recurring role as Young Ben Feldman. Best part of that day was getting to meet actress Leah Thompson from Back to the Future before I left.


4.Did you do anything special to prepare for your role?

It all depended on the episode we were doing and how I needed to get ready to do that role. For example, there was one episode I had to sing and dance in. The director called me at home the night before we were filming with a last minute addition of song lyrics to have ready for the morning and for me to create some fun dance moves. That was a fun night singing "Ice Cream Kisses" and dancing 50's style to it over and over until I created my own style. The next day while performing it, the director got a kick out of what I had created and everyone on set was singing and having fun too. It was an awesome day!


5.Do you have a favorite scene you filmed for the series?

That's a tough one because there were so many fun scenes I got to do. But my favorite episode was "F is Fight, Fight,Fight" because I got to do so many different things from jumping on a bully in school to a karate competition to a mirrored scene from the old classic Pink Panther. My favorite scene of that episode was getting to take down a giant bully with a move called the "spider monkey." This episode was so much fun because I got to work with a stunt coordinator and do my own stunts for that scene as well as the karate scene. Was a very busy day.


6.How did you enjoy working on Funny or Die?

I loved working on Funny or Die because it was the very first thing I ever did when I was 6 years old. I remember a kid leaving set crying because he didn't want to wear make-up or the lemur costume. So, the person in charge asked if anyone else would do it so of course I offered. I loved the kid show Zoboomafoo so to be a lemur would be awesome thinking I was going to be like the lemur in the show. Funny thing is I had no idea what my scene actually was until it aired on TV and I found out that my scene was completely opposite of what I thought. My lemur dad was brutally killed with blood everywhere by his best friend the lion...ironic. Definitely not an appropriate episode for my age but still had a blast filming it because I had no clue at the time all of this had happened.


7.What was the best part of filming your Criminal Minds episode?

The best part of filming Criminal Minds was that I was really excited because I had never worked on a crime show or been killed in a role before. It was so much fun getting bullet holes attached to me and blood painted on me by the make-up artist. The blood was super sticky so when I got up after the scene it was hard to move because I was still sticking to the ground.


8.What was the experience like being in an act on America's Got Talent?

The experience of being on America's Got Talent is something I will never forget because it was a once in a life time opportunity. I have never been on stage in front of 3200 people for a live show so that was definitely an unforgettable experience and a rush of adrenaline. Getting to work with kid magicians Kadan and Brooklyn was so much fun because I love magic and they are kids like me. It was so cool to get to see how an illusion is done first hand and how much preparation is needed to perform a trick like that. All I have to say is thank goodness I am not claustrophobic.


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

Some of my favorite people to work with is tough because I have worked with so many amazing people and would work with all of them again. One of my favorite people to work with was Trevor Larcom who played my best friend in AtoZ. Funny thing is we became very good friends just like in the show and still hang out today and support each other. Another person I enjoyed working with is deaf actor Troy Kotsur who played my dad in Father's Day Breakfast as well as the director Natalie Simpkins. I still talk to the both of them and can't wait to promote the movie with them in 2017.


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

That is a hard one because I enjoyed working on all the projects so far for different reasons. The cast, crew and directors have been so much fun to work with and I have had so many positive experiences. But if I had to pick one, I really enjoyed working on AtoZ because we had become like a family and every day was a different experience depending on the episode. Definitely a show I think got cancelled too early.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

One of the most challenging roles I had was playing a young RJ Mitte in the movie Who's Driving Doug. I researched a lot for the role and I worked closely with director David Conley. I wanted to make sure my acting was accurate to what he was looking for in the role of a child in a wheelchair with muscular dystrophy. Because I do Parkour this was another role that I got to perform my own stunts in which was so cool. However, the best part of working on the movie was going to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for the world premiere this past year and walking the red carpet with RJ Mitte. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met and the entire night he would go out of his way to include me in interviews, Q&A's etc. and share the experience. It was definitely the best night ever and one I will not forget!


We'd like to thank Hunter for participating in our November Q&A series!

2. What was it like walking the runway for Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers line?

It was so super exciting! There was so much energy and music- it was like a big Harajuku Party! My first real modeling booking was for Harajuku Mini when I was 4 years old so it was so cool to get to model for Gwen again!

Getting to know the crew who are all AMAZING. They've become like family! Also, working with so many cool kids from all over the US!

The best time! I got to travel to Hawaii and work with Catherine Kim and Grace Park. There's nothing better than getting to film on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii!


6. How did you enjoy filming for The Talk?

I didn't know that it would be a live taping until the morning we taped the show. We (the mini hosts) were so excited! It was my first time in front of an audience. Julie Chen was SO nice and it was exciting because she's always been one of my role models. The icing on the cake was getting to meet Jennifer Nettles who was a guest on the show that day. She's one of my favorite country singers.


7. What was it like doing a live taping for The Thundermans?

Miya's scene was not taped live. :-) But the best part of that job was that my friends Maya (who plays Chloe) and Addie (who plays Nora) were on set and we got to hang out all day.


8. Is there anything you can share about your role in Unbound?

In Unbound, I play the young version of the main character, Kitsune. It's a mix between a sci fi and fantasy story. There's a lot of special effects and Kitsune goes through a huge metamorphosis;-)

Eagle Egilsson who directed my episode of H50, Julie Chen, Kathy Bates, Gwen Stefani... Everyone who I've worked with has been so awesome and I'm so lucky to have had these opportunities!

Hawaii Five-0 will always be so special because it was my first network TV guest role and also American Horror Story because I felt like I learned so much as an actor and it was my first time working on a scary show.

1. How did you get started in the industry?

My mom put me in modeling because everyone said I looked like a Gerber baby. I started modeling when I was three. When I was older, I started working mostly on commercials and TV, which is what I do now.


2. What was your first booking?

My first booking was a print shoot for Toys R Us when I was three.


3. What was your time on set like filming your Imaginext commercial?

The Imaginext commercial was my first national commercial shoot. It was awesome! I had my own director's chair with my name on it. It was a long day, but I got to keep the outfit I shot in and they gave me a huge box of brand new Imaginext toys! (Which my little brothers kept lol)


4. How was it like working with Ryan Tannehill for your NFL shoot?

Ryan Tannehill is probably one of the most famous people I have ever worked with. He was super cool and played games with all of us on set. Great guy!


5. What was the best part of filming your Outback Steakhouse commercial?

The best part was definitely the food lol. Outback is my favorite restaurant, my family and I go there all the time.


6. Do you have a favorite part of filming your Marlin's commercial?

It was cool seeing the different parts of the Marlins Stadium. It's enormous and beautiful. My grandma took me to this job and we had a great day together.


7. How did you feel seeing your Party City commercial airing for the first time?

It took me awhile to see the commercial live on air. I had seen it online, it even came on during one of my online games. However, the first time I saw it on our big TV was an amazing feeling. I was also a little embarrassed because the announcer said we (the kids and I) were 5 years old, and we are all almost 10!


8. What has been one of the funniest things to happen on or off set for one of your projects?

The funniest thing was when my mom was recording me on set, and suddenly the chair she was sitting in broke into pieces. It was hilarious because you see her legs flying up in the video. (My mom doesn't agree that it was funny but I think it is lol)


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

I have had so much fun working on all my projects, and all the crews have been wonderful. I loved working with the Universal Studios crew, and the Party City crew are always cool too!

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

I once got to Body board for a print shoot, and that was incredible. My favorite shoot has to be my Universal Studios Orlando one. I waited all summer to hear if I booked it or not, and I really, really wanted this job. I got to shoot a scene with Megatron the Transformer and it was AWESOME. Afterwards, we stayed and enjoyed the parks.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

My advice to any kid starting in this business, is to keep going and practice your acting skills. There are tons of "NO's" to every "YES", but the "YESSES" will come if you don't give up. Peace out and have a great Holiday Season! - Nick Ryan Hernandez

November Q&A Event - Luke Burke




Luke Burke is a young model from the New York City area. He has been seen for The Children's Place, Carter's, and keep an eye out for him for GAP! To keep up to date make sure to follow him on Instagram.








1. How did Luke get started in the industry?

I started Luke in the industry because I always felt that he had a certain look that I wanted to share with others. He is so darn cute! I never thought we would get this far with it! I researched online and found a manager. I learned a lot from her, everything, she was patient, honest and became a friend. We had a great fit.


2. What is the best part of shooting for The Children's Place?

Best part for shooting for The Children Place was meeting the other kids that were with the same management company. Its funny when you see their pictures online but when you meet in person its pretty cool. I love talking to other mothers in the industry. Everyone was so nice on set!


3. How did you react to seeing him in stores?

The first time I saw Luke in stores was an omg moment. I always thought he was something special but to see him on packaging was wow he really did it!


4. What was his time on set like shooting for Carter's?

Carters was so cool! We had the audition, then that night the producer contacted me that they wanted Luke the following day for the fitting and then the next two days of shoots. It was amazing, the auction was all day and they saw hundreds of kids. He was picked out of them all to start the shoot. He did 3 outfits for that shoot. Then two weeks later they asked him back for 2 more outfits. Again everyone couldn't have been nicer!


5. What was the experience like for him to shoot for Parents Magazine?

Parents magazine shoot was one of the first major things he got. It was one of the most adorable shoots. He was in the Halloween shoot and was dressed as little bear. We met another girl from the agency and mom. We quickly hit it off and they were in the same shot together.


6. How did Luke react to seeing himself in the issue for the first time?

He was surprised. The first thing he said was there's Lukey! He had a huge smile. He was proud. It def doesn't hit him like it does me. I couldn't be more proud of this little guy! Its tough to get in front of tons of people on set and follow directions and "perform".


7. What was his day shooting for Target like?

Target was pretty cool as well. Another major thing. It was very organized. He shot with them 2 times. Another cool job.


8. How did Luke enjoy shooting for Toys R Us?

Toys R Us was so fun for him. Who doesn't want to play with toys. He shot with them several times. He loved it! Again very organized.


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

Seeing repeat models is cool. Catching up with them online and seeing their growth is so cool. The wranglers are huge. So important. This was one wrangler in particle Michael was so fun. He made Luke crack up and always remembered him by name. He made being on set fun!


10. What has been Luke's favorite project to work on?

I think so far one of his most favorite was Carters, Children's Place and Gap. We connected with people. There was a lot of repeat models we saw.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Its been fun watching Luke's growth. He is sort of shy normally in front of groups but he really comes out of his shell when in front of the camera. He is a mini professional when he is up there. This industry is def competitive, you need to be committed and able to do things last minute. I'm a planner by nature, so at first this whole thing was new to me. Getting a go see the day before, missing school, etc you have to be up for. The minute Luke starts complaining we will take a break. I never want it to be not fun for him. He will start kindergarten next year. We will be having to take it much easier come that time.


We'd like to thank Luke and his family for participating in our November Q&A series!

November Q&A Event - Riley Lio




Riley Lio is a young actor and model from the Los Angeles area. He has been seen on Deadtime Stories, Sam & Cat, in multiple shoots for GAP and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, like his page on Facebook, follow him on Twitter and follow him on Instagram!








1. How did you get started in the industry?

I started the industry, when an agent from Brand Model approached my parents when I was 4 years old and said that I had a great look and if my parents would consider me doing some modeling. My Dad wasn't really sure about how legit it was, but with my Mom's curiosity, she and I met with them at their office.


2. What was your time on set like working on your Sam & Cat episode?

My time on set was great! I spent a whole week working with the cast. We rehearsed each day, banked in school hours, met with wardrobe so they could decide what my character I was playing needed to wear, and of course, craft services is awesome. On the last day, which was a Friday, we filmed. My dressed room was awesome. They had my character name and real name on the door. Really made me feel special. Enjoyed working with Ariana Grande, Jeanette McCurdy, and Cameron Ocasio.


3. What was the best part of filming Deadtime Stories?

The best part of filming Deadtime Stories was filming in the closet. Although I was cramped sitting inside for multiple hours during the day, it was fun. The house that we film at had this super small closet, just enough for me to hide in and scare Jennifer Stone, who played the babysitter.


4. Do you have a favorite GAP shoot that you have done?

What favorite GAP shoot, have I done. Well, all of my GAP shoots have been wonderful. Each were for a different campaign and the creativity of the crew made each one special. I worked so many campaigns with them, but if I really had to pick, I enjoyed the Winter/Holiday campaign that I did for GAP and for GAP Factory, I enjoyed the last campaign which, which was also a Holiday campaign where I had an opportunity to shoot with two 8 week old white Labradors. That was pretty exciting. The GAP crew are amazing to work with and they were just like family to me.


5. What was your shoot for Jini Magazine like?

The shoot with Jini Magazine was a nice opportunity to work with new talents in the industry on a movie themed "Hunger Games," editorial. Alex Kruk was the photographer and the images were great.


6. What was was a typical shoot day for Old Navy like?

A typical shoot day for Old Navy, when not shooting in LA, is flying to San Francisco to do a fitting and shoot the next day. Pretty much like all print jobs, you shoot with all the different wardrobes that they have planned for you, get a break for lunch, and in between takes, if they are shooting with other talents, you do your school works when you can. At the end of the day, you fly back home.


7. How did you enjoy shooting for Tillys?

Shooting with Tilly's was so exciting! It happens to be one of my favorite stores, where I regularly shop at. It doesn't get any better working for a brand that you love and shop at. Now that I am teen, they have the styles that today's teen really likes. They have an amazing crew and I really enjoyed working for them.


8. What was the experience like filming your episode of Teachers?

My experience filming the pilot episode for Teachers was so much fun. There were so many kids on this episode since the setting was in a classroom. We got to do a lot of things in class, like throw paper at each other. Being one of the three principals for this episode, we had a whole classroom to share as our dressing room.


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

Some of my favorite people that I've worked with have been Ariana Grande (Sam & Cat), Jeanette McCurdy (Sam & Cat), Key & Peele (Espys), George Lopez (Saint George), Danny Trejos (Saint George), Dylan Snyder (Kickin It), Leo Howard (Kickin It), Mateo Arias (Kickin It), and Shanola Hampton (Shameless), Giada de Laurentiis (Target) and Stephanie Courtney (Progressive Flo).


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

My favorite project to work on so far was for NBC's Marry Me. I enjoy being on set working on all TV shows, but this one had to be my favorite. There were a couple of scenes which was the laser tag and basketball scene that were just so much fun. No matter how many takes we had to do, it was fun shooting with the laser guns. Basketball is my favorite sports, so playing on that scene was pretty cool.


We'd like to thank Riley for participating in our November Q&A series!

November Q&A Event - Caroline Valencia




Caroline Valencia is a young actress and model from the New York City area. She has been seen in multiple commercials, shoots for Toys R Us, and is in Zoolander 2! To keep up to date make sure to visit her official website, like her page on Facebook and follow her on Instagram!








1. How did Caroline get started in the industry?

Caroline followed in the steps of her big sister, Madeleine, and started to go on auditions at age 2. She was successful right away. We decided to look for a manager, and found the very best: Colette Palmerio of CP Talent. With Colette's guidance, Caroline has starred in several commercials, print campaigns and even a major motion picture! She is only 4 years old and has done a lot! She recently joined SAG-AFTRA, the professional actor's union.


2. What was her time on set like filming her Chevron commercial?

Caroline loves working with a crew. She becomes their buddy! She loved riding the tricycle during the Chevron shoot, and the director let her keep it!


3. What was the best part of filming for Publix?

The Publix shoot was super fun because Caroline got to fly (first class!) to Florida for filming, which meant a nice hotel with a swimming pool! On set, she got to eat ice cream cone after ice cream cone! As soon as it melted, she got a fresh one! The ice cream was definitely the best part of the shoot, but she didn't eat ice cream again for a few weeks. She still remembers that it was Salted Caramel!


4. How did Caroline enjoy shooting for The Christmas Tree Shops?

Caroline did an Easter shoot for Christmas Tree Shops which involved an Easter Egg Hunt. She got to find hidden eggs, and at the end got to keep some chocolate, so she had a great time!


5. Do you have a favorite Toys R Us shoot that she has done?

Caroline's favorite Toys R Us shoot was for a swing set. She became reunited with Melanie Sawyer the "baby wrangler" from her NY 529 commercial shoot. Melanie always makes it fun for the kids, so Caroline had a great time both with her and playing on the swing set with her buddies.


6. What was the experience like for Caroline to film for Zoolander 2?

Caroline practiced the Zoolander face all the way to her first audition because Mom is a fan of the first movie, and well, just in case! it paid off! That is exactly what they wanted her to do during the audition! She had a call back where she got to audition for Ben stiller himself! She liked him very much. On the day of the shoot, Mr. Stiller greeted her and said, "Hi Caroline, remember me? I'm Ben." He was wearing the same sweater (costume) as she was wearing for the on camera Zoolander family Christmas photo. She commented, "Hey! You're wearing my sweater!" and made the set crew laugh. They did a quick practice of the Zoolander face together, and then they walked to the set together. It was magical. When we got back to Caroline's dressing room, I noticed that the scene she had shot was called "Happy Holidays from the Valencia-Zoolanders. Penelope Cruz's Character was named "Valentina Valencia." It just happens that Valencia is our last name! Its's such a crazy coincidence! She will always be a Valencia-Zoolander!


7. How did she like working with Ben Stiller and Penélope Cruz?

Caroline absolutely loved Ben Stiller. He was a pleasure to work with, and he made it fun for her. He was very friendly, and very dad-like. She shot with Penelope Cruz's double, but every time she sees Penelope in a Lancome ad she says "that's my pretend mommy." She also refers to Ben Stiller as, "My friend Ben."


8. What was her shoot for Flinstone's Vitamins like?

Caroline had a great time on set for Flinstone's. She did a print "story board" for a future commercial piece called "Tooth Fairy." Caroline was photographed showing her on set mom that her tooth fell out. The actress that she worked with made it very fun and believable. Caroline loves the "pretend" part of acting.


9. Who have been Caroline's favorite people to work with so far?

Hands down, her favorite person to work with has been Ben Stiller. She mentions it every chance she gets! We went to an Italian restaurant in Little Italy soon after shooting. She noticed that there were a lot of actor head shots on the walls. When the manager came over to say hello to our table, she let him know that she is an actress and that she would like to bring her picture to the restaurant to put up on the wall. He said she could (after she name dropped Ben Stiller and Zoolander 2) We have not made it back there, but she does remind me every so often!


10. What has been Caroline's favorite project to do so far?

Zoolander 2 was her favorite project, but a close second was the NY 529 commercial where she got to jump on the bed! She also got to dance and jump on couches for her Walmart commercial which she filmed with her sister. She was very excited to shoot with her sister.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Caroline knows that when she is on set, she is working. She really enjoys her work, and gets very excited every time she has an audition. She tells me that she can't wait to be a " real actress." When I tell her that she is in fact is a real actress, she says, "This is just practice." Look out world!


We'd like to thank Caroline and her family for participating in our November Q&A series!

November Q&A Event - Gage Magosin




Gage Magosin is a young actor from the Los Angeles area. He has been seen on Henry Danger, and will be seen on Teachers! To keep up to date make sure to follow him on Instagram.








1. How did you get started in the industry?

I started doing community based musical theater. My first role was a Duck in Alice in Wonderland on a stage at our local library and then I was hooked! I went on to do 5 other shows at bigger theaters with bigger parts. I was playing Mike TeeVee in Willy Wonka when I became repped, but I was 8 1/2 so I didn't really get many auditions in Hollywood until I turned 9.


2. What is the best part of auditioning? The hardest part?

Best part: The best part of auditioning is getting to act because that's what I love to do. It's also exciting imaging getting the part and being on set. Fun to dream.

Worst part: Having to memorize the script. It can be hard work and it sometimes takes me away from something I'd rather be doing.


3. Do you have a favorite scene you filmed for My Power of One?

I only did one scene in the episode, but chasing my sister around the house was pretty fun.


4. What was your time on set like filming Henry Danger?

I had a blast! It was so much fun because all of the kids on the show were super nice. We ran around the halls of the studio playing hide and seek when we had breaks and played handball against a giant garage door. The set teacher was super sweet and the scene I was in was hysterical. It was a great, great experience all around.


5. What was the experience like working on Con Boys?

It was cool doing a project for a contest because we were pressed for time, which somehow made it super exciting. The cast and crew were super sweet and supportive and we got to do a lot of improv, which added another element of fun to the acting.


6. How did you feel when you won your award at the Best of San Diego 48Hour Film Project Awards?

I was in shock and then pretty emotional. I actually started crying. I didn't know they were planning on giving a Rising Star Actor award, so I was completely caught off guard. Thankfully, it was a long walk to the stage so I pulled it all together and thought about what I was going to say. It was definitely a huge highlight in my acting career. In acting, there is a lot of rejection and you don't get much feedback, so getting a trophy with my name on it meant a lot to me.


7. What is the best part of doing live theater?

Getting to be in front an audience is a really special feeling. You hear their responses and it makes me feel important; like I'm actually doing that something that impacts people.


8. Is there anything you can share about your upcoming episode of Teachers?

I acted in a very funny scene with a super famous actor who was once a child actor. He was super nice to me and just a regular guy to talk to, which was cool.


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

I've done two jobs with Producer, Dan Schneider. He was really fun and a nice guy. I also loved acting with Jon Maxwell in Con Boys. We share a mutual appreciation in music and he's chill.


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

I would have to say Con Boys because I was a co-lead so I had a lot of lines. I'm a pretty competitive person, so I loved the contest aspect of the project.


Additional comments

I love acting and I think it's something special about who I am and what I am meant to do. I think people should always chase their dreams.


We'd like to thank Gage for participating in our November Q&A series!

November Q&A Event - Hailey and Aiden Medina




Hailey and Aiden are young actors from the New York City area. This year Hailey has been busy with local theatre productions while Aiden has been seen on What Would You Do?, Maya and Marty, and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit their official website and like their manager's page on Facebook.







1. Hailey, what was the best part or class in high school?

The best part of high school is probably the trips I get to go on, because I'm involved in many extra curriculars. This year I'm actually going to be performing in Disney World because I'm in advanced choir, and after auditioning I made it into the candlelight processional in Epcot.


2. What was your favorite number to perform in your dance recital?

My favorite number was a ten minute tap medley of the show 42nd street. It was a compilation of several songs from the show and a few tap classes and it took a lot of work since it was so long. Within the performance, which was the opener for the recital, I had three costume changes and it was hard, but so worth it.


3. What was the process like preparing for The Addams Family?

Preparing for The Addams Family was chaotic, but it all worked out in the end. We had 99 days to put on a show and it was majorly a student run production, complete with a vocalist, and student directors to help out. Since I was the dance captain and had a large role in choreographing the dance numbers, it was stressful, yet an amazing opportunity too!


4. How did you enjoy your part in the musical Once Upon a Mattress?

I really liked my part of the minstrel in Once Upon a Mattress. Since I was the lead in the musical, it was really interesting to find new ways to manage my time backstage and I found that I was never not busy. Originally the lead is a tenor male, however in numerous productions the part had been switched to be played by a female and the directors really wanted me to take the part, so they changed it. At first it was difficult to figure out how to change the songs to fit a girls range, but it worked out. I sang most songs up an octave, and since my range is big I even sang a song or two right where it was. I was up for the challenge and it was so worth it because it really pushed me as a performer and my growth as singer was evident.


5. What else have you been up to this year?

This year I have been working a little bit behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera. I had the opportunity of being a PA (production assistant) on two separate projects. I worked on the set of a music video and I also worked on set and on location for multiple days for the pilot of a web series, Half Past Jump Time. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how everything came together. I loved meeting all the new people and gaining experience in things that I've never done before.


6. Aiden, what has been the best part of working for John Marshall Media?

Everyone at the recording studio is super cool and funny. I was happily surprised when I saw they used a clip of me in the studio on their website.


7. What was it like to see yourself on the Today Show?

It's always great to see myself on TV and the cast and crew were really sweet. Also, it related to sports and I love being on a team.


8. How did you enjoy filming Maya & Marty?

The Maya & Marty Show was a fantastic day and I was excited to use my British voice-over skills. The entire production team was a blast.


9. What was it like working with Martin Short?

What an honor and such an amazing opportunity to act with THE Martin Short!!! I was thrilled when I found out I was cast as "British Ben" and would be working so closely with Mr. Martin Short. It was incredible being with him on set and talking to him side by side during scene changes and backstage. It's so hilarious watching it back and him screaming at me while I'm totally straight-faced. My parents crack-up every time and it's priceless. Yeah, it was definitely a day I will remember forever!


10. Do you have a favorite episode of What Would You Do? that you filmed this year?

Every episode is enjoyable and it's also interesting to see if people will "step in" and "speak up." It’s a great feeling when people help others and I'm always smiling when John Quinones comes out to greet the people and you see their reactions. Also, I really appreciate the entire WWYD team for casting me in numerous scenarios because it allows me to play a variety of roles.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

xoxo to our parents, manager CP, agents, family, friends, teachers, producers, directors, casting directors, cast and crew, and supporters!!!

November Q&A Event - Bryson Pitts




Bryson Pitts is a young actor who has been seen on Killer Kids, in the film An Evergreen Christmas, and more. To keep up to date make sure to like his page on Facebook and follow him on Instagram.








1. How did you get started in the industry?

When I was 4 my parents put me in soccer. On my way to the goal instead of kicking the ball in- as the crowd was cheering- I would stop and morph into a character. I think my favorite at the time was Transformer's Optimus Prime. My parents knew pretty early on sports wasn't going to be my main thing, but pretending to be other characters was. I went up to my Mom one day when I was 6 and told her I wanted to be an actor on tv. Since I'm a jokester she thought I was joking but I was serious. She took me to a local agent. They signed me. Then went on to spend some time in LA and loved every minute of it. I'm back and forth between LA and New York living my dream.


2. What was it like working on Growing Up Smith?

It was so cool because everything was set back in the late 70s. It's going to be in theaters sometime in 2017.


3. What was the best part of filming An Evergreen Christmas?

An Evergreen Christmas was my very first film. The best part was seeing how the crew transformed a real house and land into a set. It was neat meeting Naomi Judd. She's super nice.


4. Do you have a favorite part of auditioning?

My absolute favorite part of auditioning is when I get to improv. I can be as creative as I want. It was during an improv audition that I gave myself the nickname Big Billions


5. How did you enjoy filming Less Than a Whisper?

Less Than a Whisper was unreal amazing. The director and producer were so down to earth, and they're from Maryland like my Mom. They've asked me to be in their next film. What a great feeling that is.


6. What has been your most challenging role to play?

My most challenging role was playing young Ben in Father/Papa because I had to cry on que. The directors had a way of getting the best out of me for the scene.


7. What was your time on set like filming Killer Kids?

Killer Kids was interesting because I auditioned for a role in a different show that I didn't get but the casting director remembered me for this role and direct booked me. It was a lot of fun playing a character so opposite of myself.


8. Is there anything you can share about your role in Lore?

In Lore I'm in the flashback scene. I play the younger version of the lead character. I can't share much more about the film since it's in post-production, but it's definitely one to watch.


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

I loved working with Harry Connick Jr. He is so genuine and hilarious. You can tell he loves working with kids. I also loved working with Todrick Hall. He's always thinking of creative ways to catch the audience's attention. He works day and night and is multi-talented.


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

My favorite project was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (I'm on the dvd promo in the beginning as Frostboy.) To be a part of a real superhero movie is a dream come true for a little boy.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thank you for having me! Big thanks to my manager, Lea Contreras, and my agents, The Savage Agency and Avalon Artists Group and to Talent INC for believing in me. For anyone out there wanting to be an actor always keep your eyes on the stars but your feet on the ground.


We'd like to thank Bryson for participating in our November Q&A series!
