We just loved watching Siena Agudong in Alex and Me and we were excited when we learned we would have the opportunity to speak with her about the movie that airs on Nickelodon. Siena was born in Hawaii and has worked on ABC’s Texas Ranger drama, “Killer Women”, which aired in early 2014 as well as a guest star on Nickelodeon’s “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn” as well as playing “Tiffany” in her recurring role on TVLand’s “Teachers”. Siena Agundong has earned her several Young Entertainer and Young Artist Award nominations in 2015, 2016, and 2017. In the spring of 2017 she won her nomination and was awarded Best Guest Starring Young Actress 12 & Under.

BSCKids: Were they any cool things that happened behind the scenes while filming?

Siena Agudong: It was such an honor to be able to work with Alex. I had such fun working with her and we got so close.

Siena Agudong: I raised a baby boar. And we did not eat him! He was a beloved family pet.
