This is the first video in my new series, The Early Tapes, which features a look at the very first time I talked to certain celebrities. Some were already established, others were just starting out in the business, while others were in between. With some (like this one), you’ll get a bit more of the behind the scenes banter that didn’t make the cut for my original red carpet reports.
There’s no better way to kick off this series than with this fun interview with Zachary Levi. I was VERY new to red carpet reporting – I was 8 and this was only my second one! I’m still amazed by how nice stars were to me when I was just a little peanut with a microphone. Zach (and Keaton Simons, who is also featured in this interview) stopped to talk to me at the Sky High premiere at the El Capitan on July 24th, 2005. They couldn’t have been nicer. I love it when people have fun doing these interviews!
It’s especially interesting looking back at this video now, given that Zach is currently on the big screen playing Shazam! for the second time. I’d love to get a new interview with him!
