Benny was invited to return to PBS Kids 2013 animation series “Peg+Cat” for another episode.  This time he provides his voice to a teen “Jonah” in the episode named “The Birthday Cake Problem”.

The series follows the adventures of Peg and her sidekick cat as they encounter unexpected problems that require simple mathematical solutions.

In this episode, you not only will hear Benny’s voice speaking as “Jonah” but also his singing so check back to find some clips some later time! 🙂

My first acting job in “Being Erica” 2

nn-beingerica3It is wonderful and a lot of fun filming “Being Erica 2” when I was on set yesterday.  My call time was 5:30pm and I worked until mid-night before I got “wrapped” (that”s the film industry term of “done for the day”).  I got a bit stomach ache around 9pm because I didn”t eat for too long 🙁 but the crew were so nice to me, they made me a toasted sandwich and shuttled me back to the base camp to my little room in the trailer so that I could lay down and rest.  I soon resumed my energy and went back on set to finish filming.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, the cool thing is I got a little unit/room in the trailer in the base camp where I could rest and change to my costume 😛 .  There”s a little TV, radio and bed in there, and the name of the character I played is at the door.  Erin (the actress who plays Erica) is super nice and a great actress.  I worked with her a lot in the scenes I did, along with about 15 background actors (all kids around my age).  It was just fun and exciting!  I was a bit exhausted after wrapped because by the time I got home, it was past 1am!! 😐

Here is a clip of me in “Being Erica” season 2 “Cultural Revolution” and behind-the-scenes of making it.  Click on the thumbnails below to view the videos!
