Tim Russ Talks Set Life "The Regulars On The Show Were Fantastic"
PG: What would you be doing if you weren't acting or producing?
Tim: I don't typically produce actually, I do direct on occasion. But if I wasn't doing either of those things, I'd probably be teaching.
PG: You're a legend as Principal Franklin on iCarly. Can you tell me more about your experience on set? Experience with main characters? Any favorite moments/scenes/episodes?
Tim: The days on iCarly were typically long, and the producer would often make changes to the script right there on set while filming. The regulars on the show were fantastic, I can't say enough about how skilled, and disciplined they were given that they had so much work to do including school for some of them. I liked all the episodes, each one was a kick.
PG: As Dr. Meyers on Hannah Montana, what was it like working with such talent? Miley Cyrus?
Tim: The Hannah Montana cast was also great to work with. Everybody got the job done, and they were gracious enough to take a picture with my daughter. Miley's dad is also a musician so we had that in common.
PG: As a recurring character on Star Trek: the Voyager, what are your thoughts on the NEW Star Trek movies & stories. Of course, nothing is as good as its original ;)
Tim: The new series and films are designed for new audiences. That's the way things are now days. Everything is being re-booted. The new series starting 2017 will be seeking new audiences as well. So far, from what I've seen, the newer projects have been well written and produced.
PG: What is the biggest life experience you've had over the years?
Tim: Nothing was more of a change in my life than having a daughter - that is quite the experience. But beyond that... I would say working on S.T. Voyager was an amazing experience in my career as an actor.
PG: What are you working on now?
Tim: I am currently in post production on "Renegades Requiem" and the feature film, "Junkie" both of which I directed. I am in development on 3 other films, and awaiting the release of the feature film, "5th Passenger" which I played a supporting role in.
