cae2xuuuaaejnzs

Most of you guys recognize Kylee Russell as Corbin Bleu’s adorable TV sister. Ever since Disney’s ‘Jump In’ aired in early 2007, the 20 year old actress has made her own name for herself. Guest starring on hits such as ER, Girl Meets World, Just Jordan, & Modern Family put her on the map! This beauty also has a hidden talent: she can sing. Plus, her fashion statements are the BOMB. Style steal coming atcha soon 😉

You may recognize her sister, Chelsea Tavares, who’s also in the acting business. The two are peas in a pod. Kylee is such a doll, and I had the best time doing this interview. Surgeon’s Warning: You may fall in love with her. Read ahead at your own risk.

What was it like working with such an amazing cast on Girl Meets World? Favorite person to work with? Girl Meets World was SO much fun to work on! I loved every single person on that set! Cast and crew! They are all unbelievably talented and were an honor to work with. Plus I got to see Cory and Topanga in action. They will forever be couple goals!

Is it true you guest starred on Modern Family, but totally forgot to watch the episode? Haha, have you watched it yet? What was your experience like on set? YES!! ? I guest starred, had the cutest costume (70’s disco chick) and was in a scene with Rico Rodriguez. But yeah, I totally missed the episode and just kept missing it every time it came on and I’ve still yet to see it!

Out of everyone you’ve worked with, who do you stay in touch with the most? There’s a good amount of people that I stay in touch with mainly through social media but I’d have to say KeKe Palmer. We were like family before Jump In and I absolutely adore her.?

What projects are you working on now? I can’t say much on it now BUT it’s an exciting one and can’t wait for everyone to see it.

You’re well known for your ADORABLE role as Karin from Jump In. How do you feel it has played a part in your acting career today? Jump In definitely pushed me further in my career. And also reassured me that I wanted to act for the rest of my life. When it first came out I was no longer “Kylee”, I was “the girl from Jump In” and I didn’t mind. ? It was an amazing experience and I’m forever thankful.

What your favorite fan interaction by far? I received a fan letter from Germany and she told me I inspired her to pursue her dreams. And reading/hearing that from fans truly makes my day and encourages me to never give up and keep on going.

I’ve watched your vlogs & I’m a long time subscriber! What advice do you have for others who want to start vlogging? What camera do you use? Oh no way!! Thank you!!❤️ Well first things first, just be yourself! Post what YOU want to post and have fun with it. I always wanted to vlog but never started right away because I didn’t think people would find my life interesting. But then I was like “you know what? I’m just doing this for fun! If people like it, great! If they don’t, oh well.” And I film on an iPhone 7! The camera is bomb!

Tim Russ talks experiences on iCarly, Star Trek, Hannah Montana + more

Although I didn’t get to meet Mr. Russ in person, it was an absolute honor getting to work with him. You may recognize him from “The Twilight Zone”, “Roots”, “Spiderman”, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, “ER”, “Unfabulous”, “NCIS”, “General Hospital”, “Lincoln Heights”, “CSI: Miami”, “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”, “Good Luck Charlie”, “Suits”, “The Young and the Restless”, “Guys with Kids”, “Arrested Development”, and more! Whew. My fingers are exhausted after all that typing sooooo, if you wanna read or learn more about him you can check out his website here: timrusswebpage.com.


FUN FACT– Along with Armin Shimerman and Ethan Phillips, he is one of only three “Star Trek” regulars to appear in three different “Star Trek” series- Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) and Star Trek: Voyager (1995).


1. What would you be doing if you weren’t acting or producing? I don’t typically produce actually, I do direct on occasion. But if I wasn’t doing either of those things, I’d probably be teaching.

2. You’re a legend as Principal Franklin from “iCarly”. Can you tell me more about your experience on set? Experience with main characters? Any favorite moments/scenes/episodes? The days on iCarly were typically long, and the producer would often make changes to the script right there on set while filming. The regulars on the show were fantastic, I can’t say enough about how skilled, and disciplined they were given that they had so much work to do including school for some of them. I liked all the episodes, each one was a kick.

3. As Dr. Meyers on “Hannah Montana”, what was it like working with such talent? Miley Cyrus? The Hannah Montana cast was also great to work with. Everybody got the job done, and they were gracious enough to take a picture with my daughter. Miley’s dad is also a musician so we had that in common.

4. As a recurring character on “Star Trek: the Voyager” (Tuvok), what are your thoughts on the NEW Star Trek movies & stories. Of course, nothing is as good as its original. The new series and films are designed for new audiences. That’s the way things are now days. Everything is being re-booted. The new series starting 2017 will be seeking new audiences as well. So far, from what I’ve seen, the newer projects have been well written and produced.

5. What is the biggest life experience you’ve had over the years? Nothing was more of a change in my life than having a daughter – that is quite the experience. But beyond that… I would say working on S.T. Voyager was an amazing experience in my career as an actor.

6. What are you working on now? I am currently in post production on “Renegades Requiem” and the feature film, “Junkie” both of which I directed. I am in development on 3 other films, and awaiting the release of the feature film, “5th Passenger” which I played a supporting role in.
