Hank Zipzer: We asked Nick James your questions
Nick James - who plays cheeky chappy Hank Zipzer in the show of the same name - joined Chris and Shannon in the cbbc office on Tuesday 25th March 2014.
We asked Nick some of your questions. Read his answers below.
MustardPizzaApple: What is it like playing Hank and what is fun about him?
It is amazing playing Hank! I've loved filming every part of the show. I love the fact that Hank is really mischievous and naughty. He's fun to be around.
BerylSkippingHorse: Do you find it hard to play a child with dyslexia, as it must be hard to act something if you have not experienced it!?
Just because you have dyslexia, that doesn’t mean you’re any different from anyone else, so it’s not hard to play Hank, but he just needs a little bit of extra help now and again.
StarstoneZingyGuava: Was it fun to do the scene where you scared Nick in Haunted Hank?
It was great fun being able to do that scene! McKelty deserved it.
SilverClarinetButterfly: What is your favorite meal to have for dinner?
Any kind of junk food – I absolutely love burgers and pizzas!
CoralPaintingElephant: Did the actress who plays Ashley mind putting her head in that pot of food? Was it real food?
Yes, it was real food, but it wasn’t actually made of animal parts – it was made out of jelly, banana and loads of other disgusting things. It made me gag just looking at it!
PeachSpikyDuck: Hi Nick I am your biggest fan ever! Are you and Mckelty friends in real life?
Thank you very much! Yes, Jude (McKelty) and I got along really well on and off set. We had some great times together.
RedVioletGlowingBadger: Who is the naughtiest on set?
Matt – one of the directors – was always doing pranks on and off set. He was such a laugh!
