America’s Got Talent

Kam Williams: Hi Issac, thanks for the interview.

Issac Ryan Brown: Thank you, Kam.

KW: What interested you in Believe?

IRB: My real life parallels the character CJ and how his faith pulls him thru the film.

KW: How would you describe your character, CJ?

IRB: CJ’s a kid at heart who never grew up and keeps his faith. He believes all things are possible, you will find that life is better. He finds a way to look at the bright side of everything even through his circumstances.

KW: What would you say was the message of Believe?

IRB: Having faith and believing. We see relationships crumble and build in the film. Love, faith, hope and relationships are constant. .

KW: You won America’s heart on America’s Got Talent when you were only 6. At what age did you start singing? 

IRB: I started at the age of 10 months when my mom and dad placed me in the choir. When I started speaking, it took off from there.

KW: What do you enjoy more, singing or acting? 

IRB: I love them both the same, but singing edges out acting because you can express your feelings and convey a message with songs.

KW: Who is your favorite singer, and who is your favorite actor?

IRB: Michael Jackson is my all-time favorite performer. Whitney Houston is my favorite singer. I don’t have a favorite actor right now.

KW: What projects do you have coming up next?

IRB: A role in a great feature film I can’t talk about right now! And voiceover work for on the Disney animated series Puppy Dog Pals and on The Stinky & Dirty Show.

KW: When you look in the mirror, what do you see?

IRB: I see a child of God. No matter who I play on TV or what people say about me, I’ll always see a handsome, educated, sophisticated, young man named Isaac.

  

KW: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

IRB: When I was 9 years-old, I went outside and did the Ice Bucket Challenge [for ALS] in the snow.

KW: If you could have one wish instantly granted, what would that be for?

IRB: To have more wishes! [Laughs] People always regret what they wish for. Mine would be for infinite wisdom.

KW: Larry Greenberg asks: Do you have a favorite movie monster?   

IRB: Chucky! A doll that comes alive.

KW: What advice do you have for anyone who wants to follow in your footsteps?

IRB: Always stay humble and prayed up… In this business, you face a lot of “No’s.” You are going to be sad and disappointed. But believe your time is coming and God will always help you.

KW: Finally, what’s in your wallet?

IRB: I have three pennies, a locket pen, and $70 in fake cash in my wallet.

KW: Thanks again for the time, Issac, and best of luck with Believe and all your other endeavors.

IRB: My pleasure, Kam.
