Karan Brar and Skai Jackson from Disney Channel’s hit TV show Jessie visited Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital of Orange County. The studio was filled with patients and their families awaiting their arrival. With excitement in the air Karan and Skai kindly greeted the large group.
On Jessie, Karan plays Ravi Ross while Skai plays Zuri Ross, the adopted children of a famous couple. In the studio they spoke about their experience of fame as young actors and how they are “just normal kids from down the block” as Karan described. They don’t consider themselves “famous” and try to focus on the art of acting. They attend school on set with many of the kids in the show and they all hang out just like any other group of children would. They like to play pranks on each other like marshmallow shooting with Debby Ryan or hiding in small places to scare each other! They answered several patient’s questions about the music they listen to, celebrity crushes, and what sports they enjoy. You can listen to the full interview here:
Karan and Skai also took the time to pose for pictures and sign autographs for all of the patients in the studio. One patient who had no desire to leave her room for weeks made it down to the studio just to see our special guests. Both Karan and Skai were touched by her effort and were so glad a simple visit to the studio could make such an impact.
Thank you to Karan and Skai for such a memorable visit to Seacrest Studios! We had a blast!
