Read on for our exclusive interview with Sean Giambrone below:
What can you tell us about what the viewers and fans can expect from the new season of The Goldbergs?
The long distance relationship with Dana will be a struggle, but he starts the season out still loyal to his love for her. Also, Adam’s position in the family and in social circles will be a struggle as he gets older and goes through puberty with all of those changes.
How would you describe your character and what originally attracted you to the role?
Adam is a guy who really likes to have fun and what he finds most fun is annoying his family and getting it on video. Also, he loves to live in his imagination. The script was the first thing I was exposed to and I really loved it. It had me laughing out loud which was not typical for me. I actually had my whole family read it, and even my brother, Luke, laughed and he’s a tough critic.
Is there anyone you would love to work with some day, if you could pick anyone?
I’ve always loved the idea of working with Betty White, but I also would love to have a chance to work with Clint Eastwood or Robert DeNiro.
What do you love most about filming a show based in the 80’s?
Reliving the pop culture through the movies and the music.
How has it been working with the cast?
Oh my gosh, I can honestly say that I have learned and laughed from every cast member. This is such a great group of people and I’m so blessed to be a part of this. We felt a connection from the very beginning in the pilot and it’s really grown with time into like a real family. I have to pinch myself that I’m actually in scenes with legendary George Segal and then to see Wendy and Jeff in action where they just come up with things off the cuff is amazing and something I try to soak up as much as possible.
Can we expect any guest stars or surprises this season?
There’s always surprises, but most of the time I’m even surprised. One that I can mention is that my other grandfather is Judd Hirsch, which was most amazing for me to meet and work with him.
What can you tell us about your new movie that you’ll be filming for Disney XD?
This summer I worked on a Disney film called “Mark and Russell’s Wild Ride” and what a wild ride it was. We filmed on Vancouver Island and my co-star in the film is Disney star, Joey Bragg. I play Russell and Joey plays Mark. It’s all about an adventure to get Mark’s license and I’m his best friend. It was a lot of fun because I got to be involved in car maneuvers that I’ve never done before and working with Joey was great. I also got to explore a different type of character who had to bring out an inner Joe Pesci every once in awhile. It will premiere on Disney XD in November.
How has the support been from your fans so far? Do you enjoy interacting with them on social media?
The show’s fans have been amazing and very supportive on social media and in person. I love when I get a chance to meet a fan. They’re so passionate about the show because they relive their youth and are able to share it with their families. The live tweeting is great because you’re never sure how the show’s being received so it’s awesome to instantaneously hear how they feel as it airs. And there’s groups like the Goldnerds that have been loyally following. Their support is awesome and so appreciated. Thank you so much for being a fan!
