Describe yourself in 3 words?
I would say funny, athletic, and kind
How did you get started into acting?
My sister actually mentioned her interest in acting and modeling first and then I wanted to get involved too! At the time, we lived in Ohio so we hired an agent and started booking jobs right away and realized that we both love acting!
How has this changed your life?
Wow! This has changed my life a lot. Moving from Ohio to California is a huge change. I am really far away from my family and my old friends. Also, transitioning from public school to online school was a huge change for me. But, with the corona virus pandemic, there are many children who are distance learning from home so, now there are more kids in the same situation as me.
What is the best and worst part of being an actor?
The best part is filming! I love being on set. The worst part is living far away from family.
Tell us about your work in ABC’s hit series “Station 19?”
The most awesome part of working on Station 19 was meeting the cast and crew, becoming friends with the other kids on set, and learning sign language.
And about your role as Young Jack?
It was really cool to film the intense fire scene where I was trying to save my family from a burning house. It was a very emotional scene with lots of moving parts and it was so awesome to see the finished product when it aired!
What other projects you have been part of?
I have worked on so many fun projects but, one that stands out is a Lego Batman commercial. They flew me to Denmark for filming which was an amazing experience. Also, I filmed a Universal Studios commercial where I had to ride the Jurassic Park ride 13 times in a row. That was awesome!! Also, another show I enjoyed working on Matty Paz Is A Noob for AwesomenessTV. It is still running on Amazon. I made a lot of great friends while filming that show.
What kind of roles do you like or would like to play and why?
I would really enjoy playing the role of an athletic boy who is a comedian. I love sports and comedy so that would be the perfect combination.
What is the most rewarding part of your work?
Seeing the finished product of something I film.
Now what about your YouTube channel? How often do you upload new content?
I upload a new video every week on Saturdays at 9:30am! I am currently filming my 40th video this week!
What do you think is the secret to have a successful YouTube channel?
Filming content that you love, having lots of energy, and being organized!
How would your best friend describe you?
They would describe me as a prankster, a risk taker who always wants to perform stunts, and someone who likes to make others smile.
What’s next for Walker Bryant in 2020?
I am very excited to announce that I just joined the Vibe Crew for their launch which is a collaboration crew including 17 other members who I will be making new awesome content with! We will be making TikToks, YouTube videos, and more! Definitely check them out!!
What is something funny about you that many people don’t know?
Most people already know that I don’t like coconut flavor but something else about me is that I absolutely love eating crab but I hate crab cakes!
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
Juice WRLD because his music is a big inspiration to me and I think he had so much more to share with us.
Do you support any charity?
Yes, I support Black Lives Matter Charity Stream (@blmcharitystream on Instagram)
Favorite song? Why?
Chimp by Juice WRLD because it has a good vibe
