HI! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHAT WITH US! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS BRYSON ROBINSON IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
Hey, I’m Bryson Robinson. I’m an actor, host and writer. I love performing and making people laugh and smile. I love watching college football and riding rollercoasters.
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START AS AN ACTOR? WHAT WAS THE AUDITION PROCESS LIKE FOR YOU ON ‘BRAT SERIES MANI’?
I started acting in NYC with commercials and print. My first commercials were for Party City and Kohls. Auditioning for BRAT was such a fun experience. I instantly felt a connection with my character Chris.
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE BACK AS CHRIS IN MANI ON BRAT TV?
BratTV is like family to me! The cast of Mani is really so close. Returning as Chris is like going back home. There is so much of Chris’s character and story to tell and I am excited to do it .
HOW MUCH HAS YOUR LIFE CHANGED AFTER WINNING THE YOUNG ENTERTAINER AWARD AND A YOUNG ARTIST AWARD?
Winning those awards and being honored and recognized by my peers for my performance in the entertainment industry feels amazing. It also inspires me to shrive everyday to work toward my craft and to continue being a role model and an inspiration for others.
TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHERE YOU HAD DIFFICULTY WITH A CHARACTER. WHAT WAS THE ROLE AND WHY WAS IT CHALLENGING?
When I was younger sometimes I would have difficulty connecting to situations that I have yet to experience in life. I have led such an amazing life with great friends and parents, so that is a good problem to have. But I’ll say the more life experience you have as you grow up the easier it is to feel and connect with certain heavier material as you have some emotions or have seen experiences to draw from.
YOU ARE ALSO THE HOST OF “PEACOCK KIDS FAST” AND “FURIOUS SPYRACERS AND LAST KIDS ON EARTH” ON NETFLIX FUTURES. HOW IS YOUR EXPERIENCE BEING A HOST DIFFERENT FROM BEING AN ACTOR?
I am a natural host. My personality totally fits with being a host. I actually had my first talk show for Funny or Die at age 8. It was called “Time Out with Bryson Robinson.” When I’m hosting I just get the chance to improve and bring a lot of my personality to the performance. Acting for TV and Film differs as I am bound more to character analysis and sticking more to the words that are written in the script.
WHAT’S SOMETHING WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU THAT MIGHT SURPRISE US?
I have rode both Big Thunder Mountain at Disney Word in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, CA in the same day! Impressive huh? I’ve also actually spent 24 hours straight in Disneyland park.
ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS/ROLES YOU CAN TALK ABOUT?
Check out BratTV Mani Season 6 releasing every Thursday. Also, I have a couple of projects releasing in 2022.
WHAT IS ONE MESSAGE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO YOUR FANS?
Be Awesome, Be You! Never give up and keep moving forward.
