Meet G Hannelius and Blake Michael (a.k.a Avery and Tyler on Dog With a Blog)
Calling all Dog with a Blog fans! We’ve already been lucky enough to interview the stars of the show starring a talking dog, but we happily caught up with G Hannelius and Blake Michael to see what they’ve been up to since we spoke with them last. On the show, G and Blake play siblings Avery and Tyler. In real life, they’re also good friends. Read on to see what it’s like working with a real dog, their most embarrassing moments (well, Blake’s most embarrassing moment), and more. Check it out!
Q: On the show you guys fight all the time like a real brother and sister, but you love each other.
BLAKE: That’s pretty much it.
G: We fight all the time, but the dog really brings us together.
Q: How do they make Stan the dog talk?
G: They do it with CGI.
BLAKE: We have a great team of really talented CGI animators and artists, and they are very good at what they do. They usually spend weeks per episode animating the dog. It’s a really big process.
Q: Do you kind of wish he did talk?
G: Yeah! He’s a sweetheart.
Q: What’s one thing you believe can make the world a better place?
BLAKE: More water, because I know a lot of places are in need of water.
Q: What’s the most unusual talent that you have that no one knows about?
BLAKE: G’s really good at circus stuff, juggling and stuff.
Q: What was your most embarrassing moment?
G: I don’t have one.
BLAKE: You don’t have one?
G: I don’t get embarrassed!
BLAKE: I remember a few premieres ago my mom licked her hand and set back my hair. That was pretty embarrassing.
Q: Blake, when they cut your hair on the show—was that really your hair, or a wig?
BLAKE: That was really my hair!
In case you missed it, we’ve got excellent individual interviews with G Hannelius and Blake Michael, too (plus these videos of Blake and G and a Dog with a Blog Would You Rather Quiz) Can’t you tell we love them? Share your thoughts in the Comments below!
