Interview with Travis Tedford

June 2001
What Adventures in Odyssey character did you play?

Travis Tedford and my character is Alex Jefferson.

What do you like most about AIO?

The people I work with and the scripts.

What other work do you do?

Movies, TV and Commercials.

How long have you been a fan of Adventures in Odyssey?

3 years.

How did you work your way into working with Odyssey?

Through a friend. Scarlett Pomers' mom told Kathy about me when they were looking for more boys and Kathy auditioned me and here I am.

What do you like or dislike about playing emotional scenes?

I like the fact that they bring out issues that sometimes need to be talked about with kids.

What is your favorite part of working with the AIO clan?

I like going into the booth working and having fun at the same time.

What is your favorite AIO website? Why?

I like all the web sites I've been to and getting all the latest news.

If you could meet one actor or actress on AIO, who would it be and why?

That's a hard question. I just hope to continue meeting new characters each time I work.

Which character do you resemble the most?

Alex because we both are computer crazy.

Who is your favorite character?

Mr. Whittaker, I always know he will get me back on track.

What do you think I need to change about my website?

I would like to see more of the characters especially all the kids. Some of the kids I work with on the show I've known since about 1994 and it would be fun to see what all of us look like. But as far as changing or adding to your web site, I guess that's out of your control.

If you had one wish for Odyssey, what would it be?

I would like the kids to be heroes and make Novacom a good network.

How do you imagine Whit's End and the town of Odyssey?

The kind of town everyone would like to live in.

What is your favorite section of the official site?

I like the episode reviews. It's interesting to see what others think.

What is your favorite section of my website?

Extra! Extra! where you wrote about Novacom.

What's it like working with Adventures in Odyssey?

Relaxed and they feed you lunch. LOL

Is there anything that you wish you could change about your acting?

Yes, I wish I could teleport to auditions. Beam me up Scotty!

If you were to give one piece of advice on how to act, how would you tell someone interested in being an actor?

Go to workshops and get into some plays because acting takes up most of your time and a lot of people don't realize how much time it takes.

Do you have any comments, questions...?

Adventures in Odyssey always gives you a lesson to live your life by and I hope everyone will keep listening. Thanks, Jacob. Your friend, Travis.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to talk to us!
