PUBLIC VERSION. Recorded LIVE during THE MOVIE CRYPT’s 7th annual YORKIETHON, actor Kyle Gallner (SMILE, JENNIFER’S BODY, SCREAM 2022, OUTSIDERS, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2010) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey. From Kyle’s humble beginnings as a child actor in films like WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER and TV shows like VERONICA MARS to his work in some of the biggest horror hits of all time like THE WALKING DEAD, JENNIFER’S BODY, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010), RED STATE, SCREAM (2022) and SMILE… this extremely candid conversation focuses on Kyle’s acting process and the honest truth about navigating such a brutal and unforgiving industry. Kyle shares his secret to brushing off the rejection and putting his mental health first (living a real life far away from Hollywood), the boys discuss the positive aspect of being forced into an unexpected break from working, and Adam reminds Kyle of the time that they almost worked together.
This conversation was recorded LIVE on December 5, 2022 - the 2nd night of YORKIETHON 7.
