In this webinar for Western Australian primary schools, students asked questions to Little Lunch cast members. Questions included: How they got into acting, what was involved in making Little Lunch, their favourite episodes, how the young cast balanced school work and acting, how they deal with fame, and what tips they would give to aspiring young actors.
Mrs Gonsha (Heidi Arena), Debra-Jo (Faith Seci), Rory (Flynn Curry) and Tamara (Olivia Deeble) thrilled primary students from around Western Australia by participating in a live online webinar on March 24.
Students across WA got to quiz the cast on how they got into acting, what was involved in making Little Lunch, their favourite episodes, how the young cast balanced school work and acting and what tips they would give to aspiring young actors.
