Jessie Star Answers Your Questions!

Karan130Karan Brar from Jessie Answers Your Questions!

You know Karan as Ravi, one of the newly adopted children into the ultra-rich Ross family on Jessie with Debby Ryan, and as Chirag Gupta in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies. (“Stop! Good God, man, you almost got the CHEESE TOUCH!”)

Jessie_600wKaran grew up in Redmond, Washington, but his family is originally from Punjab, India. What he loves most about portraying the first ever regular Indian character on a Disney show is the ability to incorporate what he has learned from his own family, and from his visits to the country back into his role as Ravi.

Karan loves collecting comic books, hiking, free running, and watching old movies with his dad. He also raps for fun, and listens to 21 Pilots, and Andy Grammer.

AND, he answers fan questions! Click here to read his answers to STACKS fan questions.

    Karan, I am probably your #1 fan even though i’m a year older than you. so here are my questions. How did you kick off your acting career? What is the best part of playing Ravi? And do you ever think you’ll do anything else when you get older besides acting or are you still planning on acting like Disney Stars from the past?

    Has being Chirag Gupta helped with being in Jessie and playing a big role in the show or has it made it harder transferring from an important but small role in a movie to big role in TV?

    My question for him is:
    How do you feel when you act in a movie?
    Being an actor would be cool but I would be scared to death!!!
