BSCKids: Hunter, tell us a bit about your character in Hickok? How much fun was it to work on a western?
Hunter Fischer: I play Joey in the film which is based in the 1870’s. My mom played by Cameron Richardson is worried because I idolize Wild Bill Hickok, who she does think is a good role model. It was amazing to work on several of the famous western sets.

BSCKids: Any behind the scenes stories you can share with us?
Hunter Fischer: Director Woodward, who has directed three of My motion pictures, has taken me under his wing and I sometimes I sit with the director during shooting. I sometimes get to take notes from Woodward over to actors. One time, I recall, that when I had been helping Woodward so much during the filming of “American Violence,” that Dern reacted. He said: ‘I’m not doing another scene until Hunter yells action.’ I thought that was pretty awesome.
