7 Days Til' Christmas!




Jordan Lemnah played the role of Matilda Ashby on The Young and the Restless. This year she has been seen for Tiny Trendsetter and been busy auditioning! To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.








1. How did Jordan get started in the industry?

We responded to an advertisement for a soap opera looking for a preemie, African American and Caucasian mixed baby. It was role on Y&R as Matilda Ashby. She was such a great fit that CBS called us almost immediately after her interview with Y&R casting to book her for the role.


2. How did you feel when you found out she booked The Young and the Restless?

We were ecstatic because she was only 5 weeks old. But on the other hand, we weren't surprised because we knew she was exactly what casting was looking for, so it was a bit of perfect timing given her age and size.


3. What was it like working with Daniel Goddard?

As a baby and toddler, he was fantastic to work with. It can sometimes take a tremendous amount of patience to work with a baby/toddler and he was extremely helpful between scenes and leading in to scenes to entertain her and put her in the right temperament for shooting the scene.


4. How did she enjoy filming with Christel Khalil?

She was terrific as well. As I recall, she had recently become a mother herself. So her mother instincts were evident. Both of her "Soap Parents" were fantastic to work with and made the entire experience easier for Jordan. We were lucky to work with them.


5. What is the best part about shooting with Olesja Mueller?

Olesja is super awesome. She is very professional, but she makes the shoots fun and gets an awesome shot.


6. How do you prepare for an audition?

We talk to Jordan about what the audition will entail, let her pick out a couple outfits, talk about how SHE wants to wear her hair. But to me, the biggest things we do is ask her up front if she wants to do the audition. If she says yes, then we're on our way and it's usually a good audition. I learned early on that if she's no in to it, then it's likely not going to go well. In the end, we want it to be 100% her choice.


7. What was it like shooting for Tiny Trendsetter?

Shea Ann is such a great photographer. It was more fun than an actual job and Jordan loved her clothes. The stylist gave her options and she chose what she liked and then she rocked it!


8. If she could work on any project what would it be?

That's an easy question. She would love to be in a Frozen non-animated movie!


9. What was your favorite scene that Jordan filmed on The Young & The Restless?

Wow, there are so many I like to choose that I'm not sure I could choose a favorite. But I have to say the wedding episode, which was filmed offsite of the studio, was the most fun to film. Both Jordan and Parker were adorable in their outfits and they had a such a great time.


10. What have you been up to this year?

As you know, 2-4 is a strange age in this business. She's now able to talk and memorize lines. She's soon to turn 5 and has just reached an age where she is excited to be involved in television again. So now we're balancing getting her back out there with finding a project that she's excited to be involved in. But, look for her be back on TV in 2015.


We'd like to thank Jordan and her family for participating in this year's Holiday Q&A Event!

Niko Baur appeared on Parenthood last season and has also been seen on The Young and the Restless. This year he has been busy working on Rake, filming a commercial for Purina, and more! To keep up to date make sure to visit his official website, like his page on Facebook, and follow him on Twitter.







1. What was your experience like being an MC at the Santa Clarita Day for Kids Event?

I really enjoyed hosting the Day for Kids event. When I was first asked to do it, I was nervous, since I had never done anything like that before, but once I got there and was up on stage, I really got into it. It was amazing seeing all of the different performers do their thing and seeing all of the things that were donated for the kids. It was a really fun day and I am looking forward to hosting next year.


2. How did you like working with Mackenzie Aladjem on Parenthood?

Mackenzie was really nice. It would be great if we got to work together in the future.


3. What was it like working with Hugh Laurie on House?

Amazing. I was really excited when I found out I had booked the show. My family and I always watched the show. Mr. Laurie was very nice to me and made me feel very comfortable on set. I also realized how tall he was. I did not expect that, but then again I was very short. I also enjoyed the tour I was given of the set. It was really cool.


4. Do you have a favorite part of filming your Purina commercial?

My favorite part was getting to pet and hold the kittens. The director was Eriq La Salle, it was very cool meeting an entertainer of his caliber.


5. What was the experience like filming Rake?

It was really great. It was filmed on the Sony picture lot, which is a really cool place. There was one scene that we had to keep re-shooting for some reason and I had to tie my brothers shoes in it over and over again...it became a joke and everybody was cracking up. I got to meet Ian Colletti, he was really nice.


6. How did you enjoy working with Greg Kinnear?

I did not know what to expect. He was very, very professional and very nice. He would be really into a scene and then the next minute he was joking around. I was very glad I was able to work with him.


7. What was your time on set like filming your Hillshire Farm commercial?

That was one of the most fun shoots I have had. We were at an elementary school in their cafeteria. They had a bunch of kids on set and all they were told to do was have a food fight! They placed food in front of them and just told them to throw it at each other! It went on all day and it was a mess. The only bad part was that I wasn't able to be part of the food fight...I had to crawl on the ground trying to SAVE my sandwich.


8. What was your favorite part of playing Ryder in The Curse of the Sunset Starlet?

My favorite part was meeting Sally Kirkland and Kathleen Wilhoite. Oh and of course, the gory fake death scene, where my grandmother pretended to slit my throat...blood was everywhere. Lori Precious, the director, was great; she always had something to say and was very humorous.


9. Who have been your biggest influences/inspirations within the industry?

Most likely comedians like Robin Williams. I have always had a joking personality and I saw acting as an outlet for that, even though the roles that I usually like are serious which a contrast to my personality.


10. What have you been up to this year?

I started my Sophomore year in high school. I take my education very seriously, so I have dedicated almost all my time to achieving straight A's in all my classes. One of my classes is Film, which I really enjoy because I get to write, direct and film different kinds of projects. Besides school, I continue to be active in professional acting, taking classes, going out on auditions and when I am lucky enough, get to work on set with some awesome performers.


11. Are you involved with any specific charities?

There is a non-profit that I would like to tell you about. It is called The Artistic Dreams foundation. It was formed to help young talented performers who are in need. It is a great foundation. I would love to have the word spread about this. Most of the help they provide is non-monetary such as full scholarships to acting, singing or dance lessons, free headshots, assistance with dance or acting outfits, meeting agents, managers and casting directors. It's a great way to help really talented kids, that can't afford to keep their dream alive. If you'd like to find out more you can go to their website at http://www.artisticdreamsfoundation.org/


Is there anything else you would like to add?

I have been honored to work with some very talented people. Actors, Coaches, directors , crew, my agents at Coast to Coast and my awesome manager, Annet McCroskey of Artistic Endeavors who has been with me from the start. Everyone I have met along this journey has taught me so much. Thanks goes out to all of them. Thank you to those who have been part of my journey. I hope everyone has an awesome holiday season and has a really healthy and happy 2015.


We'd like to thank Niko for participating in this year's Holiday Q&A Event!

I hope you have a great Christmas, Merry Christmas!


We'd like to thank Robbie for participating in this year's Holiday Q&A Event!

1. What was your time on set like filming your Petsmart commercial?

I loved working on my Petsmart commercial. I got to shoot two different spots. And I loved working with my co-star. He was nice and fluffy!


2. How did you feel seeing it on TV for the first time?

I couldn't believe that was me on the TV. Kinda embarrassed but proud the same time.


3. What is the best part about getting to work for the Disney Store?

When we filmed that spot, we filmed it in an actual Disney store and I got to play with a lot of the toys in there. Absolute best part of that job? They gave me so many toys and t-shirts. Really great!


4. What was your day on set like filming The Young and the Restless?

When I was on Y&R, it was a totally different experience. It was so quick, very fast paced. I had to learn blocking and it was only one or two takes.


5. How did you enjoy shooting for Banzai?

Banzai was super fun! We got to play on huge water slides all day. What a life!


6. What was the experience like working on A Place Called Hollywood?

On the set if A Place Called Hollywood, I got to work with some of my actor friends. It was a laid back vibe.


7. What was it like working with director Gregori J. Martin?

The director was super cool to work with.


8. How did you like shooting your commercial for Hershey's?

Shooting Hershey's was very challenging for me. I was a last minute replacement and got my script (entirely in Spanish) the night before. I worked with an awesome cast that helped me through that shoot.


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

One of my favorite was director Stacey Peralta, who shot my Ford spot this year. We talked a lot about skateboarding


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

I love working on the McDonalds spot. I made so many new friends and it was such a big production. And the best part of all...I got to see myself on TV!!

24 Days Til' Christmas!
Our annual Holiday Q&A Event is back! Make sure to visit us every day between now and December 25th to view Q&A's with many of the kids who have appeared on the shows covered at the site. Questions you've submitted have been answered (please note that similar questions to past years, personal questions, and multiple questions worded similar were not sent, and everyone receives 10), and this is going to be our biggest year yet! Kicking us off is Robbie Tucker who played Fen on YR!





Robbie Tucker played the role of Fenmore Baldwin on The Young and the Restless from 2009-2012. He currently plays the role of Fitzy on See Dad Run and has been busy working on a new project for Nickelodeon! To keep up to date make sure to keep checking back here at the site.







1. How did you enjoy working with Michelle Stafford on YR?

I didn't have that many scenes with Michelle Stafford, but when I did I remember she was really fun to be around and very nice.


2. What was the best part of filming the Holiday play?

I was a part of a few holiday plays and those Christmas scenes were always so much fun because ALL of the Y&R families were involved! The best part was that all of us kids got to hang out together at the same time!


3. Have you kept in contact with any of your The Young and the Restless castmates?

Samantha Bailey and I (and our families) have stayed friends (we used to film scenes together a lot). In fact I'll be going to her birthday party soon!


4. What was the experience like filming your McDonald's commercial?

The McDonalds commercial was a great project! We shot that at a house in Pasadena. It was a long day but really fun working with the other actors who were my age. And we got to pretend to be super heroes....how cool was that!


5. How did you enjoy working with Kristin Chenoweth for Family Weekend?

Kristen Chenoweth played my mom on Family Weekend. She was so funny and always singing! It was such a fun film to be a part of and Kristen's character was so funny ... it was great to watch her film her scenes. I was only 10 then, but I still knew she was a big actor and I was proud to be able to work with her and learn from her.


6. What was it like filming an episode of Awkward?

Working on Awkward was awesome! It's my sister's show so I knew everyone and they knew me so I was comfortable. And working together with my sister was something that both Jillian and I always wanted to do and hope to do again!


7. Do you prefer to film movies or TV shows and why?

I really enjoy doing both pretty equally, but if I have to pick I would say TV. Every episode is different and I like the energy!


8. How would you describe your character Fitzy on See Dad Run?

Fitzy on SDR was Joe Hobbs best friend. They weren't the real popular kids and they were kinda nerdy. When I auditioned for Fitzy I brought that nerdy character to him and added his glasses during the audition process and the producers loved me! Fitzy would try to act cool and he always supported Joe and his ideas!


9. What is the best part about filming live for the show?

Filming live is awesome and the best part is feeling the energy from the audience and hearing their "live" responses and then afterwards getting to meet the fans!


10. What have you been up to this year?

It's been a very busy 2014. I filmed 5 new episodes of SDR that have been airing recently. I've been on a bunch of auditions and getting into the producers on all of them. I've been pinned for a couple along the way so I feel that soon the right role will come up for me again it's such a long process! I just worked on a voice over for an animated Nickelodeon short that will air in January between shows. I LOVE voice over work so I'm really excited about the project. I have an voice over project I just did for Intel that's in the works, and as I write I'm crossing my fingers on a pilot that I'm being considered for. Hopefully I'll be able to share good news on that soon!


We'd like to thank Robbie for participating in this year's Holiday Q&A Event!
