Jay Anthony Franke Q & A


1. Do you still keep in contact with any of the cast from the show?
I have not talked to anyone in the cast in years.

2. What is your favourite memory from the show?
Where do I begin? There are so many that to pick one would diminish the others. The first paycheck was nice though =)

3. Do you wish that they would've continued the series & gone on to a "California Dreams: the College Years" like Saved by the Bell?
It's a nice thought but I am kind of glad they ended it when and how they did.

4. What is your favourite episode?
I would have to say the one where Eddie Mecca played my uncle and Jake started smoking.

5. What advice do you have for younger actors/actresses trying to make it in the business?
Believe in yourself but truly learn what humility is and how you can apply it to your life and craft.

Brent
