This event occurred twelve years ago, on March 13, 2011. The Young Artist Awards red carpets were some of the busiest I’d ever seen. They weren’t the longest – Disneyland’s Pirates premieres took that honor – but they were certainly jam-packed with interviews! So many talented young actors who are so proud of their work – it’s fun to see how professional they are at such a young age. These events give them an opportunity to hone their interview skills, and cheer each other on.
Looking back at this event, I see a few artists I interviewed multiple times on red carpets during that period. Many are still acting, some are not. And there are a few surprises – strangers to me then, but successful actors now. See if you can spot them!
