Interview with Greer Grammer from "Melissa and Joey" on ABC Family 6/17/15

ABC Familyís Q&A with Greer Grammer on Melissa and Joey

Moderator Are you team McKenna or team Lennox?

Greer Iím a little biased, but Iíd say Iím team McKenna [laughs]. Iím a little torn because clearly I love the relationship that Lennox and Zander have together. I caught up on the show before I joined, so I think their relationship is really fun and I like the give-and-take of it, but I definitely like McKenna, and I like McKenna and Zander. Itís really fun to see how he falls for her when sheís acting as Cassandra.

Moderator What is it like working with Taylor [Spreitler] and Sterling [Knight]?

Greer So fun. Iíve known Taylor and Sterling both for about seven years. I met them both when I was 15. It feels like the acting circuit with young Hollywood actors is very small. So it was really fun to get to work and already know the two people that I was working with really well.

There was no awkward moment of ďOh, what do I do when I get to work?Ē I just was able to jump right in, and Taylor and Sterling were able to make it so comfortable. I am so happy that I finally got to work with both of them.

Moderator What is it like on set?

Greer So much fun! We just had the best time, and it was so great because Melissa [Joan Hart] and Joey [Lawrence] are both so awesome and so welcoming. It was great because Joey was the director for the first episode that I did. I really wasnít hanging out with them as much because I wasnít in their scenes. But being able to come to the set for the first time and have Joey direct made it that much more welcoming for me with everybody. It really was one of the best shows Iíve ever worked on, and everyone is so much fun.

Moderator Who would you say is the funniest person on set?

Greer Oh, thatís hard. Well, Taylor is going to want me to say her [laughs]. Probably Joey, in all honesty. Joeyís such a big ball of energy, but heís cracking jokes wherever you go. I say to him ďHey, man, howís it going?Ē And his responses are so funny - so Iíd probably say heís the funniest.

Moderator What was that like performing in front of a live studio audience?

Greer This was my first time ever performing in front of a live studio audience, so, it was great! I grew up doing theatre, and everyone says that multi-camera sitcoms are basically the closest to theatre that you can get. It was also fun, for me, because my dad did Frasier for however many years, so it was cool because I got to go to tapings of his show when I was younger. The energy that the audience gives you is just so great, and their laughs and the way they clap, and itís just a whole different thing when youíre on the other side of the camera thatís so much fun.

Moderator What is your favorite scene that youíve been in so far?

Greer Thatís a hard question! [Laughs]. Honestly, it was my first scene with Taylor in the bedroom, because you get to see the switch. I got to be two characters. I got to be McKenna as McKenna and McKenna as Cassandra, which was really fun because McKenna is a lot like Lissa on Awkward. Cheerleader, peppy, fun, upbeat, high voice. So it was interesting to get to go to my normal voice, which is deeper, and to get sluggish and edgy. I really enjoyed it.

Moderator Would you say you are more like McKenna or Cassandra?

Greer Iím a combination of the two, if that makes sense. Iím really peppy inside and bubbly, but I can also be really chill, cool, and down to earth. Itís a hard mix. Maybe McKenna [laughs].

Moderator Can you tease anything about Zander in the next two episodes?

Greer You get to see Lennox find out about what happened in last weekís episode Ė the kiss, and maybe some more. So youíll get to see how that affects the business relationship, and the professionalism of the set. You get to see their flirtation and relationship grow and see what happens from there.

Moderator If you could be on any other ABC Family show, which one would you want to be on?

Greer Oh, thatís a good one. Probably Pretty Little Liars.

I feel like thatís probably a common answer. It would be so different from anything Iíve done before. Itís dark and itís scary at times, so that would be really fun.

Moderator Would you ever want to be in a drama?

Greer Oh, yes, absolutely! I love comedy, but I would love to do a drama. Iíd love to get to do something darker and scarier [laughs].

Moderator What is your general favorite ABC Family show?

Greer Thatís a hard question. Probably Melissa & Joey. I started watching more recently, when Sterling joined. I caught up right before I started filming, because I really needed to watch how Taylor acts, because Cassandra is based a lot on Lennox. Itís so funny and the writing is so great. Melissa and Joeyís chemistry is so good together, and I really love it.

Moderator Do you and Taylor hang out off set?

Greer Yes. Taylor had a fun Christmas party last year that we went to, and weíve gotten together and hung out a couple of times. We keep talking about doing karaoke [laughs]. We hang out a lot. I love Taylor.

Moderator Do you enjoy live-tweeting with Taylor and the fans during the episode?

Greer Yes. Taylorís a master at it at this point. Iím just trying to keep up! [Laughs]. But itís really fun. I love live tweeting, and I love being able to interact with the fans and get to watch it for the first time as theyíre watching it, even though I know what happens. Itís fun to be in the room with Taylor and for us to be live tweeting. I feel like we talk more at commercials, because weíre both sitting there on our phones or computers trying to pump out as many answers as possible [laughs].

Moderator Is it hard not to give stuff away?

Greer Yes. Itís really hard.

Moderator Do you have any hobbies or things you like to do in your spare time?

Greer I bake. I love to bake cupcakes and banana bread. Those are my two favorites. I do yoga and I work out. I watch Netflix a lot in my spare time. I usually sit on the couch, with a bowl of popcorn and watch Netflix. Those are great nights [laughs]. I try to go on adventures to the beach or try a new restaurant.

Moderator Do you have a favorite Netflix movie or series?

Greer Iím obsessed with Scandal. Iím all caught up now, so I donít really watch it on there, but I binged-watched all of Gilmore Girls and now Iím rewatching Friends.
