Exclusive interview with the cast of ABC Family's hilarious show Baby Daddy #ABCFamilyevent

I recently got to visit the set of the ABC Family hit show Baby Daddy and got to interview the stars of Baby Daddy, including, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Tahj Mowery, Derek Theler, Chelsea Kane, Melissa Peterman! On the set were able to explore have fun with the cast and learn some fun tidbits… 

Did you know that Melissa Peterman was hired for a guest spot on the pilot for Baby Daddy? Then they wanted her to be a part of the show? I could not imagine the show without this funny lady. Melissa had the day off, but she sweetly agreed to come in to meet us and show her parents who were in town to visit, around the set.

 We asked Melissa,  How great was it to film the newest episode? Melissa, replied  I love to do physical comedy. It’s fun to discover what will be. Of course the next question was,  Do you have a favorite episode you filmed? Melissa said that she has a couple… have a couple… I love Rangeroos, we auditioned for mascots for the Rangers… it was a lot of physical comedy. 

What does Melissa like to do when she is not on set working? Well, Melissa has a  9 year old boy and a husband and dogs that keep her pretty busy. She loves to read. Melissa loves to hang out with friends and is a bit of a homebody.  If Melissa was not an actress what would she be doing? Melissa would  hope to be working with kids or animals, a veterinarian or a teacher or a lawyer.

How does Derek Theler  feel about working on the set of Baby Daddy? Well Derek let us know that he loves, “working with the babies, it is amazing, there great. As the seasons go on they age… The ones we are using now they know all of their cues and their lines better than we do.  The audience know that their babies, and they feed off of them as much as we do, they all have a good time.”
What was a favorite scene of Derek’s?  Derek told us that the “There was a scene where I had to fight, it was great. We had a stunt man, and we were all padded up! There was a scene where I had to kick a door down… One episode I had to dress like a horse… It is kind of nerve wracking getting in front of a packed place who come to laugh…”
Tahj Mowery is just an natural born comedic actor, as we watched him act a scene over and over again, it was funny each and every time... It just has a way with words and actions, he is hilarious.  Taj, There's really good chemistry on-set, are you guys really close off-set, as well? "Oh, yeah. Chelsea was just at my house this weekend, Derek and I like going to movies - we like action movies, superhero type movies. Chelsea and I are like, brother and sister... Melissa lives, two minutes from me. She'd beep the horn and I'd be like 'Melissa's here'. Yeah, so we're all like, super close."
If you weren't acting, what would you be doing? "A lot of people don't know, I was a lot heavier and bigger, like muscle, like 40 pounds heavier so I got a football scholarship like, right out of high school so I probably would still be playing football... naw, I'm just kidding. It just wasn't as fun anymore."
In real life Taj was quiet and soft spoken, just coming back from an illness he still took the time out of his busy day to chat and have some fun with us.

Jean-Luc Bilodeau spoke of visiting Canada to visit family and his love of acting with the kids on the set.. The actors in the show really enjoy acting with the kids (the twins that play baby Emma)....
I have read that kids may be tough to act with... but this does not seem to be the case, it seems like the kids make the actors day, a little more sunshine at work, that is so sweet! Jean-Luc did you always want to be an actor? "My mom got me an agent when I was nine so I started in this business before I even knew what it was or before it was even a career, option for me.  I was just doing commercials so it wasn't until I was about 15 that I decided that was,  an option for a lifelong career. I don't even know what I wanted to become... I love cars, I'm always working on cars my whole life so I think I wanted to become a mechanic for a while. My mom' like 'Stay in acting'."
Chelsea Kane mentioned how much she loves making candles and how she was making some for holiday presents for the cast, in a great holiday scent sugar cookie... that was so nice of her, so thoughtful!
Chelsea was asked if she had the choice what brother would she choose to be with, and she be with.. Hmm? So which one do you want to end up with?
"Oh, it's so hard! And I go back and forth, even, because I love them on the show and off the show, I love those boys so much. I think the writers have done such an amazing job giving them each qualities that are so lovable and so different. I mean, on paper it's like 'professional hockey player, 6'5", super hot' or, you know, 'single dad, bartender' [laughs]. No, but I think the fact that 'Ben' has really taken the reigns with raising... you know, being a single dad... I love that about him, and i really do understand why Reilly's kinda torn" I guess we will have to watch the show to find out???

It was a great day filled with set exploration and fun interviews with these talented actors. Between the interviews the cast took selfies with us and posed for pictures, this was an amazing day with fun had by all! Are you looking forward to the winter premiere of Baby Daddy? Well I am sure you will just love it, I was able to see a preview, and trust me, you will laugh a lot! And as a bonus, you will see a cast member with no shirt.. Who is that exactly? Ok, I will cave....  here is a preview.... 
You will have to watch to see more, it will be worth it! Baby Daddy’s winter premiere will be on Wednesday January 14, 2015 8:30/7:30c
