Jean-Luc Bilodeau Interview

By: Sindy

Jean-Luc Bilodeau plays Josh Trager on the hit TV show Kyle XY and has his upcoming feature film due out this fall. We catch up with this up-and-coming young actor!

Sindy: Kyle XY is back for season two in June. What's the show about, for people who don't know?
Jean-Luc Bilodeau: Well, in the first scene in the first episode we see Kyle - played by Matt Dallas - in a forest naked covered in pink goo. So he starts walking around the city near this forest and so - obviously - he's put in jail - right, because he's naked. So my character - Josh - his mom is a social worker. She counsels Kyle while he's in jail and decides that he'd be better off if he could live inside of a family home, because he doesn't know anything. He can't speak any languages, he doesn't know where he came from. So she feels it's best that he comes to live in the home. Our home. So every episode we find out new things about Kyle and start unraveling his mystery. In season two we're going to finally start finding out where he came from.

Sindy: And you play Josh Trager? Can you tell me a little about him?
Jean-Luc Bilodeau: Josh is the mischievous son of Nicole. Like any other 15 year-old boy he likes to pick on his sister, and play jokes. He's a clever kid and always has something to say. He's not a mean kid, he just likes to joke around.

Sindy: So how did you get this role?
Jean-Luc Bilodeau: I live in Vancouver, Canada so I auditioned up here. I thought I did OK and then I got called for the call-back in LA. So they flew me out to LA to do that, I went to the Disney lot and I walked into one of the rooms, and there was my friend from Vancouver who was auditioning for it as well. We're always battling it out for parts - we're good friends - but we're always up for the same stuff. Anyway, I ended up finding out that I got it a few days later. Yeah, I was so excited.

Sindy: How did you first get your start in acting?
Jean-Luc Bilodeau: I was probably about eight years old. It was a Tyco remote controlled car commercial. I got to play with the cars at lunch time and the producer comes up to me and asks, "Hey, how do you like the car?" and I think I told him it sucked. I didn't know yet that you weren't supposed to say that kind of thing to the producer. I think the other kids all got a car after that, but I didn't get one. I wonder why...

Sindy: What is it that you like about acting?
Jean-Luc Bilodeau: It's just such a fun job. It's work, but totally fun. It's just a really friendly environment. I'm not going to say it's easy, but it's not that stressful. Acting is the part I like - not auditioning. That's so stressful. Ideally I just like getting steady work on a show.

    They can be classic or current. I think writing villains is harder than writing heroes, so I appreciate when I come across one I really like. Peter Wiggin - Ender's Game Series Count Olaf - A Series of Unfortunate Events Magneto - X-Men Comics Who are your favorite book villains?
