While attending Byron Allen’s Launch Party, Khylin Rhambo (Dink Meeker) talked with JJ Snyder of the Red Carpet Report about his show ‘First Family‘ and ‘Ender’s Game‘.
In ‘First Family‘, Rhambo plays Charles, son of the President of the United States. The pilot was filmed earlier this year and he had nothing but good things to say about the experience. “All the cast, they’re awesome, so I’m pretty excited to see how it turns out.”
Talk quickly turned to ‘Ender’s Game‘ and Rhambo was very excited to have worked with the likes of Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, and Sir Ben Kingsley. “That was a really good learning experience for me as an actor. I’m really excited. That was my first movie so it was really cool that I got to experience that.”
When asked to explain about his role and the movie’s premise, Khylin was happy to give a quick rundown. “I play Dink Meeker and he’s like a boy genius and he’s close to the main character and we have this big journey of fighting these aliens. It’s a really cool story that I’m excited to be a part of. The books are amazing. I’m stoked, I can’t even believe this is happening.”
Snyder asked whether the formics were done with puppets or CGI and it’s not surprising that he said they never actually saw them, since an encounter like this never happens in the books. “But I saw the whole layout of them.” said Rhambo.
