Interview with Abby Ryder Fortson

Being on the set of a movie isn’t as luxurious as one might imagine. Before I had the opportunity to do a movie set visit, my ideas of what it was like was much different than reality. Regardless if the movie is being shot on a sound stage or in a house in a residential neighborhood, there really isn’t much that screams luxury.

While we were on set, I let everything around me sink in. There was tons of machinery everywhere you looked. Huge crane like machines that held bright lights to give the effect that it was daylight inside the homes at night. A huge trailer with four portable potties for the production team to use.

For lunch, we ate in the basement of a church around the corner. I was seated at a table with Russell Bobbitt, Property Master for Marvel films. There were actors, extras, crew members, etc., all mingling together. How many times can you say you’ve eaten lunch in the basement of a church with famous people?

But all of the experiences, whether I thought they were good or bad, will be experiences that I’ll get to cherish for as long as my mind can remember them.

While on the set of Ant-Man back in November, I was able to get this exclusive interview with Abby Ryder Fortson.

It isn’t often that I have the opportunity to interview young talent. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever interviewed anyone as young as Abby. She did a great job and she was so much fun to talk to.

Interview with Abby Ryder Fortson

Who is your favorite Disney princess?


Is that who you were for Halloween by any chance?

No because I don’t have the outfit and it’s like 100 or 200 dollars on like one thing.

So what were you for Halloween?

A witch.

Were you a scary witch or a nice witch?

A scary witch! Well, I was both kind of witches. I was a nice witch but my costume was from a bad witch.

Well what’s your favorite part about making a movie?

What do you think of that doll that you’ve been acting with all day today?

I don’t like it.

Was it kind of creepy?

Yeah. It’s so weird! And he bit my finger!

So what’s your favorite part about acting? Why do you love acting so much?

Because I get to be all different kinds of people.

Do you like Paul Rudd?


Is he fun to work with?

Mm hmm. And he’s actually koo-koo!

Is it really hard for you to remember your lines?


How long have you been acting?

Since I was four years old.

And how old are you now?


What did you think when you saw Paul in the Ant-Man suit? And what did you think of that suit on him?

It was actually really cool. I actually got to put on one of his gloves when I was at wardrobe.

So what do your friends and family think about you doing this movie? Are they excited for you?


Is Ant-Man your favorite superhero now?

Yeah. And Black Widow.

So what’s next for you, do you have any other projects coming up?

Well, I’m on two more shows and the two babies that were working on one of my shows, they are too big now so they’re thinking my brother could do it.

What’s the name of the show, can you tell us?

Togetherness. And then I’m going straight from here to Canada to go do another show called The Whispers.

This interview with Abby Ryder Fortson was much different from other interviews. Where adults will talk and talk and talk, Abby was straight to the point and so darn adorable. For six years old, she was very well spoken and even threw in a little comedic value, just like her cast mates.
