Today, we are sharing clips from Ethan’s work on the American sitcom, “‘Til Death” which aired for 4 seasons on the FOX network. It starred Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher.
This was the first of many times that Ethan would film before a live studio audience. He says he remembers looking into the audience as a kid and thinking, “Wow! There’s a lot of people out there!” He has especially fond memories of sitting with fellow actors, Brad Garrett and J.B. Smoove between takes because they both spoke to all the kids and were “really funny”. (Years later, both Ethan and J.B. Smoove would go on to inhabit the Marvel universe in the Spider-Man and Avenger films.) Ethan also remembers meeting fellow kid actor, Brandon Soo Hoo, who played his cool older brother in the episode.
Ethan recounts how all the sets were extremely detailed and built inside a sound stage. He thought it was so cool how the cast and crew would move seamlessly between the living room, grocery store and movie theater sets.
When asked about the grocery store scene, Ethan remembers that he and his dad, Eric, rehearsed the comic timing of eating the donut the night before shooting. When the donut scene was actually filmed, Ethan rehearsed with a “fake donut” and it wasn’t until the actual take when he was given several real chocolate donuts to eat. He doesn’t remember exactly how many donuts he ate that day, but he knows there were many!
Many thanks to Director, James Widdoes, and Casting Director, Susan Vash, for giving Ethan this memorable opportunity.
