Thank you to Disney for sponsoring my attendance at the #JungleBookEvent, which included a visit to the set of Walk The Prank!
Have you caught Walk The Prank yet on Disney XD? If you haven’t, you’re in luck. You can catch an all new episode tonight and every Wednesday!
Walk The Prank blends scripted comedy with real hidden-camera pranks. The storylines center on the four young stars’ antics at home and school. The hidden-camera pranks shown are genuine reactions from unsuspecting strangers.
Last week I told you all about our really cool visit to the set of Walk The Prank. Today I’m introducing you to the cast!
Cody Veith stars as Chance, the fearless prankster who lives life to the fullest in Disney XD’s “Walk the Prank.”
Born in Florida, Veith’s organic humor and comedic timing landed him a role on “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.” He also played a lead role in the short film, “Spark.”
In his spare time, Veith enjoys playing sports including soccer and football. He currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, and has two younger brothers and a sister.
One funny moment during our set visit was overhearing someone explain to Cody that we were all there to write about Walk The Prank on our sites. All 25 of us. I believe he said, in shock, something along the lines of, “Wow, that’s a lot of coverage.” He was such a cool guy, and lots of fun during our quick photo shoot in the joke shop.
Brandon Severs stars as Dusty, Chance’s athletic best friend who lives for pulling off the perfect prank, in Disney XD’s “Walk the Prank.”
Born in Las Vegas, Nevada, Severs started acting at a young age. He got his start in national television commercials for companies including The Walt Disney Company and Toyota. Severs landed his first television appearance on “Men at Work” and went on to guest star in ABC’s “The Neighbors” and “The Whispers.” He also appeared on the popular long-running soap opera “Days of Our Lives”.
In his spare time, Severs enjoys acting, playing the drums and singing. He aspires to attend the University of California, Los Angeles and become a pediatrician.
Jillian Shea Spaeder stars as Bailey, the sassy and tech-savvy member of the group in Disney XD’s “Walk the Prank.”
Born in Paoli, Pennsylvania, and raised in Malvern, Philadelphia, Spaeder began acting and singing at a young age. At nine years old, Spaeder performed locally with her parents’ cover band. Her big voice landed her on stage in musical productions of “Cinderella: A Musical Panto” and “Les Miz.” Spaeder’s talents also landed her a guest star appearance in “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.”
In her spare time, Spaeder enjoys playing instruments including guitar, piano and clarinet. She also love traveling, doing gymnastics, tumbling and cuddling with her pet hedgehog, Kirpi.
Bryce Gheisar stars as Herman, Chance’s little brother in Disney XD’s “Walk the Prank.”
Born in Plano, Texas, Gheisar first started acting at eight years of age. On camera, he landed a lead role in an independent project titled “Into the Who Knows,” and recently wrapped production on DreamWorks’ “A Dog’s Purpose,” based on a book by the same name. His credits also include the television movie documentary “Dream Chasers.”
Gheisar enjoys playing sports and was a competitive gymnast. He has an older brother and in his free time, loves to draw and is learning how to ride a skateboard. Gheisar is a huge animal lover and aspires to work closely with charities that help them.
Tobie Windham stars as Will, Dusty’s uncle who owns a joke shop and helps guides the team of pranksters in Disney XD’s “Walk the Prank.”
Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Windham fell in love with acting at the age of 12 after attending a play. He went on to graduate from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and later received his Masters of Fine Arts in acting from the American Conservatory Theater.
Windham’s passion for acting landed him in many theater performances at various festivals. His stage credits include “The Great Society” and “The Comedy of Errors” at Oregon’s Shakespeare Festival, “Marcus, or the Secret of Sweet” at American Conservatory Theater and “Seven Guitars” at Marin Theatre Company.
Windham took his passion to television where he appeared in the mini-series “The Wesley’s” and the comedy short “Stakes,” which won best narrative short at the San Diego Black Film Festival and a Critics Choice at the Birmingham Film Festival.
In his spare time, Windham enjoys playing board games, basketball and softball. He also loves to hike, run and listen to music. Windham currently holds a second-degree black belt and enjoys giving back to youth groups and mentoring young talent.
Tobie served as something of an unofficial tour guide during our visit, posing for pictures and answering all of our questions. He also told me my bunny-eared phone case was really cool, which endeared him to me instantly.
You could tell that the cast and crew of Walk The Prank have a blast making the show. And why wouldn’t they when their job is to play hilarious pranks on people?
On tonight’s episode (April 20, 2016), Chance and Herman learn that their father is up for a big promotion. They might have to move to a different city if he gets the job! You can catch all new episodes of Walk The Prank on Disney XD every Wednesday night at 8:30pm.
