I fell into it from modeling and then going out to do commercials.

starroad
What do you want for Christmas, Logan?

Logan O'Brien
Gamecube! That's all. And a game. I don't want to ask for much this year because of everything that is happening in the world. It would make me feel greedy.

How does it feel being so young with so many fans out there?

Logan O'Brien
Fans are people I still have to meet but you are all my friends! And I'm very old in my head. Well I hope I am.

I know you like martial arts...Whose movies do you like more? Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, or Jet Li's. And then, if you could fight along side one of those guys, who would it be with?

Logan O'Brien
Jackie Chan is my fav! all around. I think it's because of his funny personality, you got to like that guy!

AmericanAlien
Can u tell us more about 'KidSportsLA' or 'The Young Filmmakers Club'? Both projects sound very interesting and fun!

Logan O'Brien
Hi B.! Both are video series that are being edited now. There is still more work to do on both. We added a new end to the skateboarding video last week.

Emma
Do you get to go shopping and stuff like regular kids?

Logan O'Brien
I am sooooo regular. I have a torn shirt on now. Skateboard one of course! Does that include grocery shopping also? Ha ha. Because I have to help with that.

Dr. Naif
Hi Logan! is there anything special that makes you nervous or distracted while you are acting? Regards to Lenny :-)

Logan O'Brien
Not a thing - unless it is bad behavior in people. Then it feels distracting. Lenny says - pr interval.

spudman
Do you get recognized a lot when out in public?

Logan O'Brien
Yes. I wish they would say hello or something. They stare and whisper. Maybe I will try smiling at them!

jon2565
If you found a magic lamp and were only given one wish.....what would it be?

Logan O'Brien
For three wishes! Ha ha. But if that was not ok then it would be for tolerance of humans for animals and other humans.

Are there any films you would like to remake?

Logan O'Brien
Hard one - ummm how about Radio Flyer.

The kid that goes off the cliff - I don't know which one did that role.

cineguy
who gave the idea of being a young actor? your parents?

Logan O'Brien
The agency for modeling and commercials sends you. I started going at 4 but some kids only stay modeling or with commercials. I do all 3 things still. My mom sent my photo to an agency when I was 10 months old.

RoseBowlBound (Jean)
Hey Logan :o) Do you like to read a lot, and if so, what is your favorite book?

Bilbo Baggins

Logan O'Brien
My parents dying and marrying the wrong person. Or did you mean something else like getting worms?

Coffee Bean
I hear you memorized a 20 minute monologue. What was the name of it, and how did you do it?!

"Yma Dream" and I did a little bit each day and I hear the words when I memorize. I will have a new one soon. The old one is from 1962.

jon2565
If you could sit and visit with someone and talk for only 5 minutes...anyone in history including someone still alive today...who would it be? And what would you talk about?
