Interview with Taylor Spreitler from
"Melissa and Joey" on ABC Family 7/31/15
ABC Familyís Q&A with Taylor Spreitler Melissa and Joey
Moderator What was your favorite episode to film for
Melissa and Joey?
Taylor Oh goodness, thatís a hard question, there
have been so many! [Laughs]. I really loved our Christmas
episode; it was fun to see us all play different versions of
our characters for an entire episode. Getting to be in
costumes and having horrible southern accents was a lot of
Moderator Who was your favorite guest star?
Taylor I love the whole story line with Kevin and
Sterling because I have known them both for years. Weíve
been friends forever. So, it was a lot of fun to work with
them and hang out. So theyíve definitely been two of my
Moderator What is your best Melissa and Joey memory?
Taylor Itís hard to narrow it down between all of the
amazing birthdays that Iíve had, but I think it might have
been my high school graduation. I graduated high school and
I wasnít going to be able to attend a real graduation, so my
entire crew came together and they made me a cap and gown
and Melissa gave me a commencement speech and it was a huge
It was an episode where she snuck me into a Kings of Leon
concert and they told me that I had to jump into the
dumpster. When I came out of the dumpster, there was a
podium set up, a cake for me, and it was really special. It
was very nice that they cared so much to make sure that I
had this very special moment, something that every kid went
through that I wasnít able to experience and they made it
for me, which was awesome.
Moderator Who is the biggest goofball on set?
Taylor All of us share that title pretty equally
[laughs]. Iíd probably say Melissa, because she is always
the first one to do something; physical comedy is her thing.
She might be the biggest goofball because sheís always the
first one to jump in to make someone laugh.
Moderator If you could guest star in any other ABC
Family show, which one would you want to star in?
Taylor Definitely Pretty Little Liars because they
wear the cutest clothes on the show [laughs].
Moderator If you were stuck on an island with only
one other Melissa and Joey cast member, who would you want
it to be?
Taylor Letís seeÖmaybe Sterling because heís from
Texas and he would know more survival skills than the rest
of them. No offense to any of the rest of us, but we all
grew up in the city [laughs]. So, I think I would have to
pick Sterling because I feel like his Texas roots would
really come in handy.
Moderator Whatís your favorite ABC Family show,
besides Melissa and Joey?
Taylor I love Baby Daddy, because I think its fun to
watch a show that is similar to ours, plus I watch it every
Wednesday since it comes on right after Melissa and Joey.
Moderator What do you enjoy doing off the set of
Melissa and Joey?
Taylor If Iím not working, Iím in my backyard in my
pool. Iím kind of a homebody [laughs]. I like to hang out at
home with my dogs, listening to music, and reading in my
Moderator What were you doing when you found out you
were cast on Melissa and Joey?
Taylor I was driving to Burger King. I had been at
ABC Family and I tested for it on a Friday; it was my last
audition and they told me that I wasnít going to know
anything until Monday. So, I came back and I was trying to
forget about it, and I was thinking, ďIím just going to go
to Burger King, come back, relax for the weekend and then
figure it out on Monday.Ē When I was in the drive-thru at
Burger King, I got the call and started screaming at the top
of my lungs. The people at Burger King probably thought I
was crazy [laughs].
Moderator Whatís it like to be on set?
Taylor Itís so fun! Weíve all been working together
for so long that we are a family now. Itís one of those
things that I donít think in the five years we did this,
that I was ever bummed that I had to go into work. I was
always so excited that I got to work and hang out with my
friends. Iím still friends with my cast and my crew.
It was such a great environment plus youíre doing a comedy
so whatever is going on, itís hard to walk into that set and
not be happy because we get to do funny things and we get to
do what we love with people that we love.
Moderator Is it nerve-wracking to film in front of a
live studio audience?
Taylor It depends on what the episode is. The first
time we all did it, Nick had done a little theatre before,
but I had never done a live audience before so it was very
scary because I was not used to having so many people watch
you while youíre working. But after a while it got easier
and it was just so much fun.
There would be times we would have episodes that we knew
were going to be a little more difficult to perform in front
of the audience, and that would make us a little nervous. If
I had tongue twisters that I had to say, I would always get
really nervous, because there are so many people watching.
Moderator Who are you closest with out of anyone on
the ABC Family shows?
Taylor We have this little ABC Family community,
where we all end up hanging out. Iím really good friends
with Melissa. Sheís the person that Iím closest to from our
set and Iím really close with Greer, Kevin and Sterling. Iím
also really good friends with Chelsea Kane from Baby Daddy.
Moderator Do you have any teasers you can tell us
about about the series finale of Melissa and Joey?
Taylor Big things happen. Zander and Lennox get into
a little bit of a car accident and they end up having an
epiphany, and Melissa and Joey get some even bigger news.
Moderator Do you think Lennox is better with Zander
Taylor I think Marco is fun and they are such a great
couple, but I think her and Zander are meant to be and I
think theyíve been through the tests numerous times and
theyíve always come together. Theyíre definitely a strong
Moderator Do you hope to film anything else with the
cast of Melissa and Joey in the future?
Taylor I hope so! I love working with them and I
think it would be fun to work with them on something else
thatís not Melissa and Joey and see the dynamic there. It
would be interesting.
Moderator What is it like to work with Melissa Joan
Taylor Itís great! It was so great coming in as a kid
and not really knowing what youíre doing. It was very
overwhelming but working with her, since she was someone who
was a teenage girl going through it, was definitely very
helpful to always have someone that I could ask questions
and she was always there for me.
Anyone who has ever worked with Melissa, or even met her,
knows that she loves to tell stories. She is an open book.
She will tell you her entire life story if you talk to her
for more than five minutes. Sheís just very welcoming. Sheís
not a very secretive celebrity; sheís just very welcoming.
Moderator If you could guest star on any ABC Family
comedy show, which one would it be?
Taylor The new comedy series, Kevin from Work. I
watched the first episode yesterday and one of my best
friends Jordan Hinson is on it, and it is so funny. I had
dinner with the entire cast two weeks ago. That just seems
like such a fun show to work on, so I would love to guest
star on that.
Moderator If you couldíve had anyone guest star on
Melissa and Joey, who would it have been?
Taylor We had so many good ones that itís hard to
think of someone who wasnít on our show. I grew up watching
almost everyone that guest starred on our show, because it
was a lot of Ď90s stars and then there were a lot of my
friends. A lot of our guest stars I knew beforehand. I donít
really think that we missed out on anyone and we had some
great guest stars over the years.
Moderator Do you see yourself doing more comedy in
Taylor I would love to! I love doing comedy. I love
the whole idea of sitcoms. A lot of people grew up watching
it and it looks like itís such a good time. Itís nice to do
something that makes people laugh. My biggest thing is
getting tweets from people who thanked me for all the laughs
and how I helped them through hard times. Itís such a
gratifying feeling. I would definitely love to do more
Moderator Do you have a favorite TV show?
Taylor I donít really watch a lot of TV, but Iíve
become obsessed with Astronaut Wives Club and Game of
Thrones. Those are the two shows that I watch.
Moderator Who would you want to play on Pretty Little
Liars if you were a character on the show?
Taylor I want to be A; really throw everyone for a
loop. Could you imagine, we do a crossover, and Aís been
Lennox this whole time?
Moderator Do you have anything else you want to tell
Taylor Just thank you. Itís been quite the roller
coaster these past five years and Iím very grateful for
everyone hanging in, supporting us and keeping our little
show going for as long as they did. We are all very
