Brett Kelly Interview

By: Sindy

Brett Kelly is often recognized as the "kid from Bad Santa" but now he's the kid from Unaccompanied Minors. We sit down to chat with Brett Kelly about life, school and his latest Christmas flick.

Sindy: Can you tell me a little about Unaccompanied Minors?
Brett Kelly: I play a kid named Beef. The premise is that there are a bunch of kids snowed in at an airport over Christmas. It was a lot of fun to shoot. We filmed in Salt Lake City, Utah and I loved being out in the mountains and snow. We all had such a great time there. Wilmer Valderrama was really nice.

Sindy: What's on your Christmas wish list?
Brett Kelly: I want the Entourage boxed set. I love that show. I definitely want NHL 2007 too - I'm a huge hockey fan.

Sindy: How did you get into acting?
Brett Kelly: It was really just a fluke. I went with my sister to an audition for a Huggies commercial - you know, cuz my mom couldn't leave me at home. When they saw me there, they asked if I wanted to audition too. I did - and I got the part.

Sindy: What was the first job you ever got after that?
Brett Kelly: I played "kid in bank" on a direct-to-DVD movie called Kill Me Later. Strangely, I don't get recognized a lot for that.

Sindy: You were also on Dead Like Me. Do you prefer working in film or TV?
Brett Kelly: I guess when you have a small part on a TV show its like being the new kid in school. Everyone already knows each other and knows their character really well. On a movie set, everyone is new to the project. It takes a lot longer to film and you all get to know each other really well. Also, you get to go to cool places to film and there's just a lot more variety.

Sindy: What sort of roles do you see yourself looking for in the future?
Brett Kelly: I love comedic roles. I really like being able to be creative and just ad-lib.

Sindy: A lot of child actors seem to lose their way as adults. Are you worried about that at all?
Brett Kelly: Not really. I think they can just go off if their careers don't work out the way they want them to. I'm just going to keep doing this until no one will hire me anymore and then I'll do something else. Maybe I'll be a lawyer or something.

Here~ What's your favourite Shawn Mendes song?  Mercy, Stitches, and 'There's Nothing Holding me Back.' What did you think of  'There's Nothing Holding me Back'?  It was really nice. :3  Stitches or Treat You Better?  Stitches.  Handwritten or Illuminate?  I can't choose. >_<
