We caught up with Young Talent Time host, Rob Mills about the show, music and the upcoming YTT tour which starts on June 30! Check it out…
GP: What’s a typical day on set for you like?
Rob: We go through a run-through and rehearsal. Then we have a final check of the script and make sure that it’s ready to go. I give the kids a bit of a pep-talk and then do the show and try not to stuff up my lines!
GP: What has been your favourite performance so far?
Rob: I liked the Michael Jackson night when all the kids did ‘Thriller’ and also ‘Can You Feel It’, I really loved that performance. It was really high energy and came out awesome. The kids looked like they were having so much fun.
GP: Have you had any embarrassing moments on set?
Rob: Yes, I once called Serena, Tia instead. I was chatting with Tia in the next segment of the show and I was just thinking ahead. So during the show I said Tia’s name a few times when I wasn’t meant to and when I was meant to, I called her Lyndall! The audience just laughed at me!
GP: What are you currently listening to on your iPod?
Rob: The latest album that I’ve been listening to is ‘El Camino’ by The Black Keys. It’s pretty awesome. I’m actually going to their show when they come down here!
GP: Do you have any guilty pleasures on your iPod?
Rob: I love musical theatre! One of my favourites is the musical, ‘The Last Five Years’. I really love it and I’ve also been listening to a lot of ‘Legally Blonde: The Musical’ lately. I’m going to be in that show later in the year, so I’m really getting into it.
GP: What do you do in your spare time?
Rob: I like to run and go to the gym. I like to play guitar and play my Xbox! I’ve been playing ‘Call of Duty’ a lot. It’s so addictive! I finished the game and then I started playing it again! I also like movies, going to the theatre or watching television shows!
GP: YTT has a tour coming up, what can fans expect?
Rob: It’s going to be the kids’ favourite songs that they have performed. We are going to have the Li’l Bandits crew come with us. They are really excited, I know that! It’s going to be just like the show but we’re going to mix it up a bit! So you might see Sean play a bit more guitar, Adrien playing drums and Tia playing piano. You get to see how extraordinary talented these kids are. I get to see it every week, but with the tour, you get to see it live.
