Forget all that talk about a successful acting career taking years of practice, perseverance and dues-paying.
In the case of at least one Disney Channel star, the job is all play and no work – well, at least not much work.
Interviewed on WZAP Radio, Brandon Mychal Smith, who stars opposite Demi Lovato, Tiffany Thornton, Doug Brochu, Allisyn Arm and Sterling Knight on Sonny With a Chance, offers and idyllic look into his workaday life.
“On-set, it’s literally a party. I heard a famous person say, If you love what you do, you never go to work. That’s how I feel,” Brandon, who turns 20 next week, tells host Zachary Sang.
“I get on-set, I hit kraft service, I grab a slushie and some nachos; it’s 9 a.m., me and Dougie are rippin’ up kraft service; we go down to Serling’s room, play some Guitar Hero; might even do a little Midnight Four Racer on the Xbox,” adds the dapper actor.
“Then maybe we might go to set. Literally, set is, like, ten percent of our day. The rest is fun.
“If we’re not in Doug’s room playing Wii golf, jamin’ it out or in there just clownin’ around, then we’re just layin’ back. It can’t get any better.”
Brandon also confirms that the Sonny cast- members are in fact bowling fanatics, while boasting about bowling a better game than Sterling – who just last month on WZAP Radio boasted about consistently beating the pants off him.
“We religiously go bowling. We go every day, every lunch break. If there’s a chunk of time that exceeds 30 minutes, we are bowling.
“Right now, me and Sterling are battling for the No. 1 spot. I heard him say in your interview that most of the time he beats me – which is true.
“But we just went bowling recently, like two, three days ago – with me, Sterling, Tiff and one of our executive producers – and we ripped it up and I won.
“I bowled like a 155. Sterling bowled like a 130. So he was pretty mad.
“But I had to take him down.”
