Are you a person that likes to interact with shows? Do you talk and sing along? I do. I put my whole body into watching shows. And I LOVE shows that have music and comedy. Especially ones that are about family like Perfect Harmony on NBC! I heard about this show for a few weeks before I found out that a friend of mine’s son is on it! How amazing is that? He has been acting since he was 8 years old. He was kind enough to grant an interview and I would love to share a little about him and his role on Perfect Harmony. I also have a great Amazon GC Giveaway at the bottom of the post!
If you have not heard of Perfect Harmony, its the *perfect* time to check it out and catch up. New episodes are starting January 9th, 2020 on NBC.
When former Princeton music professor Arthur Cochran unexpectedly stumbles into choir practice at a small-town church, he finds an oddball group of singers that is out of tune in more ways than one. Despite the ultimate clash of sensibilities, Arthur and his newfound cohorts, including temporary choirmaster Ginny, her ex, Wayne, vocal powerhouse Adams, gentle giant Dwayne, the impossibly upbeat Reverend Jax and more, may just be the perfect mix of individuals to help each other reinvent and rediscover a little happiness… just when they all need it most.
Exclusive Interview with Spencer Allport
How many auditions did you have for the role of Cash on Perfect Harmony? I think it was 5 auditions in total. Those were with all different people. First I met with the casting directors and then I got to meet with Bradley Whitford and Jason Winer and a few other producers.
Who would be your favorite guest star on the show? Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic. I don’t know how they’d make that work but he’s done some acting and I’m a die hard Magic fan so I think they could figure it out for me. They’ve brought sports stars onto other shows.
What do you like to do outside of the show, what are your hobbies? I like to play basketball, I take every chance available to join basketball camps or clinics when I’m off work. When I’m not playing I’m watching the Orlando Magic play. I know I live in Los Angeles now but at our house we’re ‘Pure Magic!’
Walk us through a normal day on set? Usually my mom and I get there and go to the breakfast truck. Then I get into my wardrobe and hit the hair and makeup trailer. After that I go to school with my teacher Eric. At some point they will be ready for me and I head to set. The day is split up with shooting and school. If you follow the cast on Instagram you can see how we goof off during filming, we have fun.
If you could sing any song on the show what would it be and why? I think someone asked me this once and I said Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra, something a bit more modern would be Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake.
In this episode airing on January 9th you’ll be singing, is this your first time singing on Perfect Harmony? No, I sang a little bit in the Thanksgiving episode. You can hear me on the Doxology if you purchase the soundtrack on Amazon, Spotify or iTunes. Then this upcoming song, which is still on the downlow, but I hope you’ll like it.
It is so interesting to me to see how child stars feel about their shows and how their days on set go. I am sure each show is different but its so nice of Spencer to give us a little glimpse into things.
