It is Christmas time and that means our favorite thing on our TV’s and big screens at theaters. Christmas movies! Chase Pollock is starring in a brand new one this season, Santa Stole Our Dog: A Merry Doggone Christmas! We got the opportunity to talk with Pollock about the film and working with the incredible cast. He also gave us info on what he has coming up next.
KRISTIN: Can you tell us first how you got started in entertainment? What made you want to start acting at a young age?
CHASE: My amazing fourth grade music teacher recommended me for a role in the high school production of Annie. After the first rehearsal I was hooked! I was then lucky enough to be discovered by Kim Dawson Agency and to be signed by Velocity Entertainment. I love the ability to become another character either on stage or on screen.
KRISTIN: You are starring in the new Christmas film Santa Stole Our Dog: A Merry Doggone Christmas! Tell us about this movie and where your character falls in.
CHASE: Santa Stole Our Dog is a wonderful Christmas movie that is great for the whole family. It’s a feel-good movie about a family’s journey to the north pole and back to find their dog Rusty, who Santa accidentally steals on Christmas Eve! I play the role of Tommy, a typical teenage boy!
KRISTIN: The cast is incredibly talented and looks like a lot of fun to work with. What was it like on set with them?
CHASE: The whole cast crew were just amazing. We really did become like one big family by the end of filming. There was a lot of laughter on set and a lot of support and love for each other! Not to mention many inside jokes!
KRISTIN: What do you think it is about this film that will draw people in to watch?
CHASE: Everyone loves a good Christmas movie! The movie is a fun adventure with many twists and turns. It’s about family and the joy of Christmas!
KRISTIN: With the film about to come out on December 5th, what else are you working on? Do you have other projects coming out or that you are working on actively now?
CHASE: I recently wrapped a World War II short film called Mount Liptak that is currently on the film festival circuit. It is based on a true story of a underaged serviceman who enlisted at age 15. It’s an amazing story, very touching and heartfelt. I had the honor of playing the lead role, Lester Liptak!
KRISTIN: You also have done theater productions since a young age. Is more theater something you want to do?
CHASE: I love theater, however right now I am concentrating more heavily on film and TV production and hope to be provided the opportunity to be a part of many more projects!
KRISTIN: Where can fans keep up with your projects and you online?
CHASE: They can keep up with me on my Facebook page and Twitter.
KRISTIN: If you weren’t acting, what do you think you would want to do?
CHASE: I have always had a deep admiration for architecture and engineering! I love the design and building process!
Make sure to check out Santa Stole our Dog on December 5th. We are looking for more projects from Chase Pollock in the near future.
