I met Spencer Allport’s mom, Lee, through a mom group when our sons were just a few years old. Over the years we’ve remained close friends and our boys enjoyed watching superhero movies and playing basketball together, but last December they made the big move to LA for Spencer’s acting career. We were sad to see our friends move away, but Spence’ quickly cashed in (pun intended) when he was offered the role of Cash in NBC’s Perfect Harmony.
Exclusive Interview with Spencer Allport
Recently I had the opportunity to catch up with Spence’ and ask him a few questions about his first big role on Television.
Did anyone tell you how long it might take to be cast on a tv show in Hollywood? Yes, a lot of people, almost everyone I met and I was amazed at how quickly I earned this role. (After only one month of moving Spencer Allport landed a series regular role.)
How many auditions did you have for the role of Cash on Perfect Harmony? I think it was 5 auditions in total. Those were with all different people. First I met with the casting directors and then I got to meet with Bradley Whitford and Jason Winer and a few other producers.
Walk us through a normal day on set? Usually, my mom and I get there and go to the breakfast truck. Then I get into my wardrobe and hit the hair and makeup trailer. After that, I go to school with my teacher Eric. At some point, they will be ready for me and I head to set. The day is split up with shooting and school. If you follow the cast on Instagram you can see how we goof off during filming, we have fun.
Which of the actors are you closest to? Definitely Will Greenberg, he plays my dad Wayne. He’s a kid at heart.
In this episode airing on January 9th you’ll be singing, is this your first time singing on Perfect Harmony? No, I sang a little bit in the Thanksgiving episode. You can hear me on the Doxology if you purchase the soundtrack on Amazon, Spotify or iTunes. Then this upcoming song, which is still on the down-low, but I hope you’ll like it.
What do you like to do outside of the show, what are your hobbies? I like to play basketball, I take every chance available to join basketball camps or clinics when I’m off work. When I’m not playing I’m watching the Orlando Magic play. I know I live in Los Angeles now but at our house, we’re Pure Magic!
See Spencer Allport in Perfect Harmony’s next episode “Know When To Walk Away” airing January 9th on NBC at a special time 9:30/8:30c (typically 8:30 ET)
