It’s fun to get some behind the scenes from the actors, like Jackie shared about training. Here you get to see a little behind the scenes on red carpet interviews. In this case, media outlets were grouped, so that we could each ask Jackie one question, but also record the questions asked by the other outlets. That helps give interviewers more material, although it does make editing the clips a little more difficult. In our final red carpet reports, we usually only included the question I asked. The exception to this is when I was in a group but didn’t get to ask a question. Most outlets were very polite in taking turns and only asking one question, but occasionally someone would yell out as many questions as they wanted, often getting those answers simply because they were the loudest. Luckily, this didn’t happen very often.
This interview took place at the Karate Kid premiere at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood on June 7th, 2010. You can hear Jackie as the voice of Master Splinter in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.
