Q: Besides video games, what do you enjoy doing when you’re not busy acting?

A: I like hanging out with my friends and staying in my pajamas all day and watching TV. I’m a big fan of “The Walking Dead.”

Q: Isn’t that a little scary?

A: When I first started watching, it was pretty creepy. I’d get a jolt when a zombie jumped out. But I got used to it.

Q: A lot of kid stars have had trouble handling their fame. How do you intend to stay grounded?

A: My parents and friends help me. My mom says that if I ever get a big head, she’s going to pull me out of acting, no matter what. Even if I’m 18, or 25 and married. I also have a friend that keeps me in line. If he thinks I’m getting a big head, he pretends to pull out a needle and pop it while making a “whoosh” sound.

Q: You shoot your show on the Warner Bros. lot. What fun things are there to do when you get bored?

A: We’re right across from “Ellen,” so I like to see what guests she brings in. One day I went out there and took a picture of Justin Bieber’s shiny blue Ferrari. I knew it was his, because a security guard stared at me the whole time.

Q: Can you picture a day when you’re driving around in a shiny blue Ferrari?

A: Actually, I’d prefer a white Maserati instead.
