Questions for COOPER:
How is it working with the cast of Girl Meets World? What have you learned from everyone?
I love being on the set of Girl Meets World. The cast and crew are all so nice, it’s like coming to visit family. I have learned a lot from the cast. I have learned how to create a character, how to have extra energy when filming in front of a live audience and how to play foot five.
Why should we be tuning in to Girl Meets World?—specifically the Girl Meets Terror episode.
Girl Meets World has some amazing lessons and stories in every episode. Girl Meets World of Terror 3 is a very interesting episode. It shows you what would happen to the characters if Riley and Maya never met. It is pretty spooky to see how different the characters lives are.
What can you tell us about Fun Mom Dinner and your character? How was it working with a comedy legend like Molly Shannon?
I had an awesome time on Fun Mom Dinner. The director Alethea Jones was super nice. I did not have any scenes with Molly Shannon. I filmed with Toni Collette and Rob Huebel, they were my parents. I also had scenes with Adam Scott. They were all great to work with and talk to. I had fun watching them improvise too. I think my favorite parts were when they changed the lines a bit.
Funniest thing that has ever happened while you were reading for a part?
I can’t think of a funny part at an audition but I remember a super funny part on set. I was working on a TV pilot for ABC called Chevy with Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo. I had to come out wearing a grocery bag as underwear. It was funny, I pretended to be a sumo wrestler!
Special thanks to both Cooper and Quinn Friedman for taking the time out to talk with BSCKids.
