Hi Seth - what do you like to do besides acting, and do you want to act when you are older?

Seth Adkins
John- I like all kinds of sports, especially basketball and football. I'm really not sure yet what I want i want to do when i get older.

Jason
What has been your most difficult role and why??

Seth Adkins
Jason. --My most difficult role so far has been that of Pinocchio in the movie Geppetto. I spent a lot of time in the make-up chair. (almost 3 hours a day) The costume was very hot because my arms and legs were made out of rubber. It was also very hard when we did the scenes in the water because my costume became very heavy and waterlogged.

Crumbs
Seth, you're roll in " When Andrew Came Home" was very impressive. How did you prepare for it, especially for the scenes where you speech was mumbled in the beginning?

Seth Adkins
Crumbs- Thank -you. I met with a child therapist who works with children like Andrew and the director(Artie) also spent time with me and helped me prepare. My mom also talked to me about children like Andrew because she was a teacher and has taught them.

Hi B- Me! Of course! (My mom says she is, though)

sjb
How do you go about memorizing lines quickly? Is it just something you've always been good at?

Seth Adkins
Actually, memorizing lines has never been easy for me. I spend hours and hours preparing for auditions and scenes when I am working.

<-Anthony->
Seth... your future goal is to 'attend college', what do you want to study?

Seth Adkins
I'm just 12. I know I want to go to college but I'm really not sure what I want to study yet.

Coffee Bean
Seth, if you could go back and remake any movie, which one would it be ... and why?

Seth Adkins
Probably, First, Do Know Harm because Meryl Streep was so great to work with. But, I have enjoyed working on all of my movies and would enjoy going back and making any of them over again.

Mr. Critic
Your performance in "...first do no harm" was very convincing. Did you do any research in order to play the role of an epileptic?

Seth Adkins
Yes- I had an acting coach named Mary and my mother had taught handicapped children. We watch movies of childdren having seizures and then we practiced them.

m.e.d.
Hello Seth, what is your favourite film and why?

Seth Adkins
My favorite movie is Saving Private Ryan because my grandpa fought on the beaches of Normandy.

Manda
Do you find it hard to balance out your time between school and acting?

Seth Adkins
Yes- I get a lot of homework. Most teachers do not realize what my schedule is like. Sometimes it is very hard to keep up with everything.

Crumbs
Seth- I understand Myles Jeffrey was also in Gepetto. Did the two of you get to hang out when you weren't busy?

Seth Adkins
Myles and I are good friends. We had fun on the Geppetto set together. We also got to hang out in Canada when I was up there making "Andrew". We get to do things together at "Kids With a Cause" events too.

<-Anthony->
Seth... what kind of stuff have you done for the 'Kids With A Cause' charity?

Seth Adkins
Just a couple of Saturdays ago I got to attend an event for National Adoption Day. It was really a wonderful day because 639 children were adopted at the court house in Los Angeles. I have worked on a lot of different events. One of my favorites was with the blind children, also in L.A. I have really enjoyed being a member of "Kids With a Cause."

Mr. Critic
Which director would you most want to work with?

Seth Adkins
I really don' t have a favorite in mind. I've enjoyed working with all the directors I've worked with.

Jason
If you could go to anywhere in the world you haven't been, where would it be?

Seth Adkins
Alaska- I love to fish and I've always wanted to go there.

Coffee Bean
Seth, I read that you don't actually live in LA, but you work there. Is it hard to live in another state other than California, and always fly to LA to work?

Seth Adkins
I have relocated to LA, but in these days and times we film in so many different locations it really doesn't make a difference where you live.

sjb
Have you got any new projects in the pipeline?

Seth Adkins
I just finished a pilot called Real Kid Heros last week and have been working on some voice over projects for Disney.

<-Anthony->
Are there any actors you would like to work along side?

Seth Adkins
I would love to work with Tom Hanks , John Travolta, Julia Roberts and a whole bunch more.

Steve
Seth, what are the last three books that you have read? What type of books do you usually prefer?

Seth Adkins
Actually, everything I have been reading lately has been connected to school work. But I did read an unpublished book lately called Andy Sweet and the $20.00 Gold Piece. It was a great book.

Mr. Critic
Do people recognize you and ask for your autograph on the street?

Seth Adkins
Sometimes we can be in the strangest places and someone will recognize me. I always give them my autograph if they ask for it.
