Calem MacDonald

Dream, Dream, Dream

January 12th star of Kids Vs. Aliens stopped by Dead Talk Live for a little chat. And it was a dreamer’s dream.

The segment began with a deep dive into Kids vs. Aliens and, more specifically, MacDonald’s role as Billy. Throughout the conversation, MacDonald covered the aspects of landing the role of the primary character Billy, Billy’s character development, and his perception of the script. Then he drilled down to his basic method for getting into general character and how that process diverged or converged with his portrayal of the main antagonist. 

MacDonald Talks Character and Passion

MacDonald broke down Billy’s character to an almost cellular level during the twenty-minute exploratory exchange. MacDonald’s approach was open, and his explanation thorough. Before closing, there was a touchpoint where MacDonald was asked about another more personal passion, aviation, and how he balanced it and his role in the hit Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy. His explanation was succinct and full of heart.
