BSCkids: Chris Galya
You do a lot of impressions, who is your favorite?
It’s hard to chose just one, but I’d say Regis Philbin, Denzel Washington, and The Grinch. I always like learning something new, I like the challenge.
When did you decide you were going to be an actor?
At a young age, I was really interested in acting but I had a really normal childhood on the east coast. But I loved to make people laugh when I was a kid, and I would make videos with my brother Vinny. I finally had the opportunity to move to LA where I could pursue it full force.
How did you get the part of Tony on “Jessie”?
Debby Ryan’s mom actually snuck out into the room where the actors were waiting to go in for their audition, and gave me an “incognito” interview. I didn’t actually know this until several weeks ago. I think she had a big part in casting me as Tony.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you while filming the show, “Jessie”?
Off set, we love to prank each other. Skai Jackson got me good once by running into my dressing room while I was on set and cranking the heat up to 90 degrees. I could barely sit in there. She is pretty hilarious.
What is Debby Ryan like to work with?
She is great, super professional and exudes a very positive energy. She is great with the kids.
What was your favorite episode to shoot so far?
My favorite episode was our fairytale episode, Princess and the Peabrain, which airs tomorrow night! The episode was set in a “medieval time” and I got to wear a fill suit of armor. It’s a turning point where you start to see how Tony really feels about Jessie, and where the Tony / Jessie legacy could be headed.
If you could guest star on any show what would it be?
The New Girl. The writing and entire cast is all GENIUS.
Are there any movies that you are looking forward to seeing this year?
I’m really looking forward to 21 Jump Street, Wonderlust, Dark Knight Rises, Rock of Ages.
