BSCkids: Connor Hill
What was the first acting gig you got?
I was actually about five and was in a movie called The Librarian.
What can you tell us about your film, Restive?
I actually just went to the premiere and it’s a pretty intense movie. It is about abuse in a family. My mom and I are running away from my uncle and father. And whew, it’s just a pretty crazy movie.
What has been your favorite actor/actress to work with so far?
Oh yeah it would definitely be Mark Wahlberg. I also liked a guy from Restive. He was really cool; we did all sorts of stuff on set.
Are you going to be on any television shows anytime soon?
I have been in movies mainly; I mean I haven’t been in any TV shows yet. But I would like to, they seem really fun.
Are there any actors you would love to work with?
Oh yeah definitely, I really would like to work with Jack Black and Will Ferrell. I think they would be really fun.
What would your career choice be if it weren’t for acting?
I’m not sure. I mean I really like math. So maybe a scientist or something.
What do you do during your free time?
I really love playing soccer. It’s so fun. And my coach is THE loudest coach ever. You can hear him when you’re not even on the field. If there were an award for the loudest coach, he would definitely win.
What is your favorite part about acting?
My favorite thing about acting would have to be all the cool people I get to meet and making new friends.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
I would have to say School Of Rock!
You like writing; do you plan to write a screenplay in the future?
Maybe, I am actually writing a book on my computer, just kind of thinking that out.
