On the show, Jessie, 15-year-old Karan Brar plays Ravi, one of Jessie’s four charges. In real life, Karan is super-sweet and cool. Last year, he even came by to answer fans’ questions. We caught up with him again to see what he’s been up to since our last interview, what he likes about Ravi, what kind of pet he wants to have, and more. Check it out!
Q: What do you like about your character Ravi?
Karan: I love that he is really bright-eyed. He’s so new to the country. Well, I shouldn’t say new, since it’s been 3 years. But he is so bright-eyed and he looks at the world so hopefully, which is so cool.
Q: How do you like acting with Mrs. Kipling (a 7-foot Asian water monitor)?
Karan: It’s really cool. I love it. Having an animal on set is pretty awesome.
Q: Was it strange in the beginning working with such a big lizard? Was it scary?
Karan: Yes, definitely. I was really creeped out! It was really weird.
Q: Water monitors are not really man-eating, are they?
Karan: I think they eat meat!
Q: What is the best book you ever read?
Karan: The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I acted in those films and love the books even more. They mean so much to me and I love them.
Q: So what is the most unusual talent you have that most people don’t know about?
Karan: I can do this weird thing with my thumb. It’s, like, double-jointed. It’s really weird that I can do this weird motion with it.
Q: If you could have any one pet in the world, what would it be?
Karan: A zebra. Zebras are awesome.
Q: What was your favorite TV show growing up?
Karan: SpongeBob SquarePants! I love it still.
