Monday night is a very special night for this Georgia tween who might as well call Wilmington his second home. From A Cinderella Story to Revolution, he’s filmed in this town a lot! And he’s only twelve! Matt Lintz (Under the Dome’s Mackenzie Lintz’s lil bro) will be guest starring on Sleepy Hollow as Thomas Grey, a young boy from the past. He took a few minutes out of his day to chat.
1) Did you get a chance to watch Sleepy Hollow before you shot episode 5? I was actually up there shooting when they had the screening of the pilot, which they were kind enough to invite me to see.
2) What do you think about the show? I love the show so far!
3) What can we expect is this episode of Sleepy Hollow? Another mystery for Abbie and Ichabod, of course! Its very scary and exciting and you’ll be on the edge of your seat the entire episode!
4) With your sister being on Under the Dome, did you get a chance to hang out in Wilmington much during that time? I did visit her a few times, but I’d spent a lot of time in Wilmington before that working on projects like Cinderella Story and Pirahna 3DD. Just before Under the Dome started shooting, I actually did an episode of Revolution with Colin Ford, so I worked with him first! Ha!
5) What makes working on Sleepy Hollow a unique experience? I liked working with such a great cast and crew. It was also fun to play a boy from the 1500s, which is something I’ve never done. I got to do a stunt and have SFX make up as well which was a new experience.
6) How do you like having a set tutor vs. going to school everyday? Which do you like better? I like going to school better because I can hang out with friends and not worry about my lines!
7) What do your friends think of seeing you on TV? They think its cool, but they don’t pay much attention to it.
8) Are your friends in the acting world too? I have a few friends who are actors but most of my friends are not actors.
9) Who has been your favorite actor you have worked with? Favorite actor on Sleepy Hollow? I liked everyone, but working with Lucy Hale was particularly fun on “Another Cinderella Story” (also shot in Wilmington) I enjoyed ALL the actors on SH.
10) Any advice to the kids that are inspiring actors about the biz, for example – breaking into the industry, what it takes? Always follow your dreams and don’t let anything stop you!
Thanks Matt! You got a great career ahead of you. We will be cheering Monday night! And LIVE tweeting of course!!
