“Abbott Elementary” Star Tyler James Williams Talks Romance Sitcom
It was a big night for Williams, who won the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series Musical Comedy or Drama. The last time he went to the Golden Globes was in 2006 for his sitcom Everyone hates Chris. He was 13 years old at the time. The Let It Shine star also told reporters that he is aware that not all former child actors go on to successful careers as adults.
“I saw a lot of people that I exposed to, very talented people that wouldn’t have the roles or weren’t in the right place at the right time,” said the Emmy-nominated actor.
Onward Abbot Primary School, Williams regularly works with a large number of child actors who play students. However, he says that he does not often have advice for the young actors but that he tries to give a fun, informative atmosphere.
“We hope 30 years from now someone is there Abba standing here, and they say they felt comfortable playing on set for the first time,” Williams said.
Williams wasn’t the only one Abbot Primary School winner last night. Quinta Brunson won Best Actress in a Comedy Series, and the show took home the award for Best Comedy Series.
