We had the absolute pleasure of inteviewing “Kickin’ It” star, Dylan Riley Snyder, about the upcoming Halloween episode and more.
Dis411: What can you tell us about the new Halloween episode of “Kickin’ It” titled, “Wazombie Warriors,” premiering on Disney XD October 15?
Dylan: Our new episode “Wazombie Warriors” is a Halloween episode where we go into Kim’s dream to see a world of mass chaos and a breed of monster called a Zompyre. This episode shows the teams battle to save the universe from a total Zompyre apocalypse…or at least save themselves.
Dis411: What is it like working with your “Kickin’ It” castmates?
Dylan: My castmates are truly amazing to work with. They all always teach me something, whether it be Karate, music, or just cool facts. We all get along super well and we are all like family to each other.
Dis411: What is your favorite episode?
Dylan: My favorite episode was “Swords and Magic.” This was a fun episode because we were able to try out Live Action Role-Playing and to be able to act out epic battles. This is also the first episode we filmed that we all fought side by side. Which was quite fun. 🙂
Dis411: Any news on a season 3 of “Kickin’ It” yet?
Dylan: As of now, not yet. As soon as any news is released, I will let you know.
Dis411: Do you have any other projects coming up that you can tell us about?
Dylan: Not at the moment. Right now I am focusing on enjoying a nice vacation and starting my junior year of school.
Dis411: Can you share with us what you want to be doing 5 years from now? Still acting?
Dylan: In five years, I see myself in college being a normal student. I am not expecting to still be acting but if I am, awesome. It is something I have fun doing, but I still am going to be working on my backup plan.
Dis411: If you could work with anyone, who would it be and why?
Dylan: I believe that I would like to work with Quentin Tarantino. I love his films and would love to be a part of any project like one of his. I can’t wait for Django Unchained to come out this Christmas. I think he is a really good filmmaker.
Dis411: Do you have any plans for Halloween?
Dylan: For Halloween, I plan to hand out candy to the neighborhood kids. I do plan to be in costume to show off my mothers designs, whichever one it may be.
Dis411: What is your favorite Halloween treat/candy?
Dylan: I enjoy a lot of different types of candy. In general, I am not a very picky person. If i had to choose though, I would say that the little butterscotch candies or the atomic fireball cinnamon candies are my favs.
Dis411: What is your favorite Halloween movie?
Dylan: One of my favorite Halloween movies is Hocus Pocus. I really like this movie. My family and I would always watch it together cause it would always come on close to Halloween.
Dis411: Lastly, what is your favorite Halloween costume that you have worn?
Dylan: My favorite Halloween costume was my Batman costume that I wore for three years straight when I was two. It was for the most part, my everyday wear. I was obsessed with Batman and I wish I could go back to those days…just to be back in the costume lol.
Dylan, thank you so much for taking the time to visit with us. We enjoy watching you in action on “Kickin’ It” and wouldn’t miss an episode!
Be sure to tune in to Disney XD on Monday, October 15th for “Wazombie Warriors.”
