We recently had a chance to ask Lucas Cruikshank - better known as Fred Figglehorn - 10 burning questions about his life and his hilarious YouTube alter ego!


Kidzworld: What was it like finding out that your YouTube channel, “Fred,” had reached 1,000,000 subscribers?

  • Lucas: I was extremely thankful for all the fans! Definitely couldn't have done that without them.

Kidzworld: What was your reaction when you found out “Fred” was going to be made into a movie?

  • Lucas: I was so excited because it gave me the chance to show all the fans the whole entire world of Fred.

Kidzworld: How did you come up with Fred’s crazy voice? Is it hard to talk like that when you're filming an entire movie?

  • Lucas: It was just something I added to the character while creating it. There was a few times during the filming of the movie that I thought I might lose my voice, but luckily I never actually did.

Kidzworld: What's the coolest thing that's happened to you since Fred Figglehorn became so popular?

  • Lucas: I've gotten to meet so many talented people!

Kidzworld: What were some of the big differences between filming “Fred” as a movie and taping it as a YouTube episode?

  • Lucas: It takes a lot longer and there's a lot more people throwing in their ideas.

Kidzworld: What is the craziest or coolest thing a fan has done for you?
