9 Days ‘Til Christmas!

Lucas Armendariz is Laura Krystine’s younger brother. This year he has been seen on Law & Order True Crime, filmed for the movie To the Beat! and more!

1. What was your time on set like filming your Star Wars video for Disney?

That was a dream job!!! I worked with, Roy Wood who played the Toy Maker in the video! Roy actually worked at Disneyland and made some of the millennium falcon for the ride! He was really making models for the video and I got to keep some of the clay models he made! He let me have some of his clay and tools and I have enjoyed them to this day! I absolutely loved that job and will never forget the experience of working at Disney animation studios! It’s definitely my most favorite job I’ve ever done!

2. What was it like getting to work with a green screen?

A green screen is fun, I actually don’t really notice, I just do what I’m suppose to and don’t pay attention to the screen much.

3. How did you enjoy being a part of your sisters film To The Beat!?

The producer, Susan Bernhardt wrote me in a scene that had me supporting the opposing team of my sister! LOL! So I was actually cheering for the team that was against my sister! But it was so much fun! I got to play basketball with Dexter Darden in between scenes and I also met Kelli Berglund.

4. Do you have a favorite part of attending the premiere for the film?

I loved walking the carpet and having my picture taken. They also had a HUGE, HUGE Candy bar so I loved that!

5. What is it like to film for a Late Night talk show?

So much fun!! I did 4 different skits for Jimmy Kimmel but all of those were not filmed live. When I worked on the James Corden show it was live, but we had 3 rehearsals so I felt very prepared.

6. How did you like filming with James Corden?

James Corden is very funny he made us all laugh.

7. What was your experience like working on Law & Order True Crime?

So cool!!! It took so long to curl all my hair! Everyone thought I was wearing a wig!! But it was all my hair! I really enjoyed our tennis scene(it never made the final cut) but I got to play a lot of tennis before and after the scene.

8. What was the process like to get you ready to film as Young Erik?

Very serious and a lot of preparation. I really wanted to put myself in character as best as I could, so I would take a minute to myself while the crew was testing lighting.

9. How did you enjoy working with Carlos Gomez?

Carlos would help me get in character, he would lead the scene so that I could follow perfectly. I admire Carlos and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to work directly with him and Lolita Davidovich!

10. Is there anything you can share about your role in Survivors Guide to Prison?

I worked on that so long ago. It’s suppose to release in 2018. I’m in a flashback scene for that film.

11 Days ‘Til Christmas!

Dylan Mueller is Declan’s older brother. This year he has been seen in episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, worked on a film, and been busy raising money for the Matthew Fetzer Foundation!

1. What was your first day on set like for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?

It was incredible! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel takes place in New York in the late 1950s so being there really was like stepping out of a time machine. Everything, from the cars on the street to all of the old-timey clothes was spot on. Plus, we filmed at Morningside Heights up near Columbia University which looks so old-timey to begin with.

2. How did you enjoy returning for a second episode?

It was flattering because they called personally to ask if I was interested in coming back. I guess I did something right! I got to hang out near Rachel Brosnahan a lot, which was special. She’s Midge Maisel. She was really cool and nice to me.

3. What was it like getting dressed up in 1950s clothes to film?

Hot! A little too hot, actually! We filmed in New York in the summer wearing period clothing for New York in the winter so I was wearing plenty of wool and tweed. They were good about keeping us cooled off with drinks and things and it was fun to dress up- they even gave me a closely-cropped 1950s-style haircut.

4. What was it like meeting Jameel Warney of the Team USA basketball team?

Jameel Warney is not famous…yet. But he is a total winner and he will be playing in the NBA some time soon. He is the greatest player ever to play for Stony Brook University, which is on Long Island and one of my father’s alma maters. He is also a really nice guy who even donated to my Wrestle for a Cure charity to Pin Cancer. That was really thoughtful.

5. Do you have a favorite thing that you’ve gotten to do at an audition this year?

I hope this is okay to say, but to tell you the truth, I never really go on auditions and neither does Declan. Not often. We pretty much have been lucky enough to have been asked to do some things this past year so we did them when the project was a good fit. So, while we know we may never be huge stars if we continue doing it this way, it is flattering to know that some people have found us pleasant to work with and have wanted to have us around for things. I’m grateful.

6. If you could work on a project anywhere in the world where would you like it to be?

I’ve never been out of the United Sates, so something in Europe or Hawaii would be a dream come true.

7. What inspired you to run a lemonade stand in support of the Matthew Fetzer Foundation?

Thanks for asking! Not sure how that all started, but I’ve really just been trying to all the good I can ever since I was old enough to talk and walk. I think we all should. The lemonade stand isn’t just any lemonade stand either – it’s raised many thousands of dollars for charity since I’ve been doing it and I’m proud of all of the good it’s been able to do and thankful for the generosity of others.

8. Can you tell us more about the charity?

Matthew Fetzer was a boy who lived near our community a while back. He was extremely sick for most of his life and spent a lot of time in cancer wards of special hospitals with a lot of other sick, usually terminally ill kids. His goal was that when he got better, he wanted to start a program that could maybe give those kids a break and make them happy for a little while. He died when he was ten, before he got the chance to do it, but his parents made his idea into a reality. They distribute toys; host parties, host ice cream sundae parties, and provide financial and emotional support to children with cancer and their families. I never knew Matthew but I feel as though I did. I’m a cross country runner and their fundraiser 5K is always my favorite event of the year to compete in because of the good the proceeds do. His parents and their colleagues are doing some great things. Learn more at:

I have also been a wrestler for a long time and for the past two seasons I have been working to Wrestle For A Cure through Pin Cancer, a really great organization that uses the platform of the great sport of wrestling to raise awareness and funds to support patient care and research initiatives at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Last year I was a top five fundraiser in the country. All goes to help kids battling cancer- one of the best causes I can imagine. Please consider helping me help children battling cancer, or at least share this with others:

9. How did you enjoy filming with Declan for The Land of Steady Habits?

That really was a dream come true. I think I told you last year that my goals in entertainment were to one day appear in a film with my brother and also to voice a cool cartoon character. I could never have imagined that it would take place so soon, if ever! Everyone on that set was so wonderful and I’m so excited about its release.

10. Is there anything else you can share about your part in the film?

It’s a really character-driven adult movie so, seeing as how I’m not an adult and I’m not one of the four main characters, my part is obviously not major. But it seems as though it’s a special movie and it is definitely made by special people and I am so proud to have been a part of it. Nicole Holofcener is really smart and kind and it seems as though she’s made a lot of good movies in the past so I’m grateful to have been a part of all that. She was so down-to-earth and even though she was in charge of everything, she made a lot of time for talking with Declan and me and really treated us like stars- which we really aren’t. But we were the only children. I really liked her.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Happy holidays to everyone! Do all the good you can! Thanks to the Star-Kidz peeps for always being nice to Declan and me and including us in the fun stuff you do.
