I would love to aid in a campaign for kids to be kind to each other! Be Kind, Be Awesome, Be You!
I had the pleasure of interviewing Bryson Robinson. Bryson is a 12-year-old award-winning actor, influencer, and all-around cool kid. Bryson is a series regular on the super popular Brat Series Mani. He can also be seen in the feature film “Donny’s Party,” released in 2019.
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
When I was younger, everyone would stop and tell my mom in grocery stores, malls, etc., that I had a super big personality and was entertaining. I have always loved to make people laugh, so my mom got me involved in commercials, and the rest is history!
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?
The most interesting thing that has happened to me was having the film I starred in, A King’s Betrayal, screen all around the world then get distribution through Amazon. It’s really cool.
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
It is kind of funny now; looking back on it, when I was younger, I thought when they said “crafty table on set,” it was actually arts and crafts instead of snacks!!
What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?
I just booked two cool projects. One where I get to stretch my limits as a performer and perform some of my own stunts.
Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?
I have met so many people and interacted with, and will be so many more along the way. I really enjoy talking to crew members and learning about their jobs. I really love making movies. I met Corey Feldman, and he was really kind and inspiring.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
This career is a marathon, not a race. Always be yourself and be kind.
You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
I would love to aid in a campaign for kids to be kind to each other! Be Kind, Be Awesome, Be You.

Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?
Stay focused and keep moving forward. I’ve learned no matter what happens to remain positive and keep focused on how great my life is.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?
Yes, my mom is amazing. She has been the best “momager” in the world. She always keeps it positive and works all the time to further my career. Thanks, Mom!!
Some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂
Absolutely hands down, Steve Harvey! He is so clever with his comedy. I have been watching him for years. I would love to host a game show someday.
