It’s another week of pure Canadian entertainment interviews here on Rambling On. Today we have young actor, and activist Adam Murciano; Wednesday we’ll chat with musicians and activists The Brothers Dube; and Friday we’ll close out with webcomics creator Gibson Twist.
Adam Murciano is probably most familiar to American tv audiences for his appearance in the Disney movie FRENEMIES with Bella Thorne and Zendaya. He’s more than just an actor, though, as you’ll see in the following interview.
ANTHONY: Adam, thanks for taking the time to do an interview. How are you?
ADAM: Anytime! Thank you! I’m great, thanks!!
ANTHONY: How long have you been acting professionally, and what was your first job?
ADAM: I’ve been acting my whole life, but in the professional industry – for 4 years. My first acting job ever, was on a comedy television series called “Rent-A-Goalie” I played an Italian soccer-obsessed boy named, Tino.
ANTHONY: You worked on Disney Channel’s FRENEMIES. How was that experience?
ADAM: Working with Disney was a dream come true. It was such a fun time! The whole cast was so sweet! I still keep in touch with them! We all would go to school during the week, and film during the weekends for like two months straight! It was crazy, but so fun!!
ANTHONY: What are you working on now? Any new acting jobs coming up?
ADAM: Yes! I have a few projects already filmed, just in post-production…Can’t say anything just yet – but they should be out in 2013!
ANTHONY: A lot of the young actors I’ve interviewed have a charity or cause that is important to them that they use their celebrity to help support. What causes are important to you, and what can people do to support them?
ADAM: Giving back, and charity work is very close to my heart. I am part of an organization called “Blessing in a Backpack” with another fellow actor, Austin MacDonald. Blessing in a Backpack feeds kids in order to give them the nutrients and energy for school! Kids can be so mean, and make fun of others for not being able to afford meals, so Blessing in a Backpack does it in a private way so no one has to ever know! People can donate and read more about it here: http://blessingsinabackpack.ca/
ANTHONY: You know, I interviewed Austin a while back and we talked about Blessings in a Backpack.
ANTHONY: And my usual closing question: What is your favorite book, and what would you say to someone who hasn’t read it to convince them that they should?
ADAM: I know this is a common book right now, but for English class, we had to read the Hunger Games! And I’ve been hooked on the books since! I’d convince the person to read it because it is just filled with adventure and you can never put it down!
ANTHONY: Thanks again, Adam!
ADAM: Thank you!!
