Exclusive: Interview with Knight Squad actor Amarr M. Wooten

On 24th February, comedy lovers will get a chance to add a new favourite show to their list. Nickelodeon is all set to add humor to the medieval times with its new live action comedy show titled “Knight Squad”.

CelebMix got a chance to talk to Amarr M. Wooten, who will be playing the role of Warwick on the show. The star, who garnered attention from his work in shows and movies including American Housewife, Disney’s Liv and Maddie, Splitting Adam and Criminal Minds, told us about his new project and what the audience can expect from it.

Check out the interview below:

Please tell our readers a bit about yourself. 

I’m originally from Washington D.C. but I’ve lived in LA for 5 years

When did you first realize that you wanted to be an actor? 

When I was about 11! As a 3 year old, I never really knew what I was doing, but as I grew older I started to take it more seriously.

How do you perceive your art? That is, if you had to define acting, how would you define it?

If I had to describe acting with one word, I would use the word “colorful”.

Do you have an idol who you look up to in terms of acting? 

I look up to so many actors that it’s hard to pick one, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, and Heath Ledger are some of my favorite actors.

Every actor no matter how professional or popular he/she is, faces some challenges in his/her profession. What kind of challenges do you face while acting?

Many people go through different things, especially in the acting world. This person may not book anything, and this person may book everything that comes to them. Even if you book something that doesn’t mean that you’re in the clear yet; you could be replaced and the project may not do well, or it may never get picked up, you never know!

Congratulations for Knight Squad! Can you please tell us a bit about the show?

Thank you! The show takes place in medieval times so be ready for sword fights, ogres, pixies, wizards and sorcerers, flipping elves, a magical princess, and much more!

Please tell us about your character Warwick. How is this role different from the ones you have played till now?

Warwick is unlike any other character I’ve played before. I’ve played funny characters before, but he’s definitely the funniest character I’ve ever played, his backstory is different as well! He’s a third generation knight which means he has a lot to live up to!

How did you prepare for the character of Warwick? 

For me it’s simple! I read the script and made sure I understood who Warwick was, then after that I went into the audition and tried my best!

Considering that you have starred in so many series, how do you take out time for studies and school?

It’s certainly not easy, but I try my best to take time out for school! I’m also lucky to be on shows that care about my education! So that helps as well!

Amarr, 2018 has just started. Do you have any major goals you wish to achieve this year?

In all honesty, my main goal for 2018 is to become the best version of myself that I can be and to be surrounded by fun, loving people.

Would you like to share with us your future projects that fans should look forward to?

Nothing that I can talk about right now, but you’ll have to wait and see!

Knight Squad is set to premiere on 24th February. Are you excited? Share your thoughts via tweet @CelebMix.
