Young Entertainment Mag: You definitely do a lot between working on a web series in Funny Married Stuff, Netflix series Colin in Black & White, and the upcoming Nick show That Girl Lay Lay, what do you like about working on so many different stories?
Peyton Perrine: Working on these projects has been an amazing experience. They are all telling different stories. It is helping me learn about different types of acting and what types of stories I like to tell. I am learning so much.
YEM: On Funny Married Stuff you work with your actual parents, what’s that like?

YEM: Do you really feel like your parents are themselves on the show or is it different?
Peyton: No, they were definitely themselves, my dad was learning to act and the first thing my mom told him was be you. My mom has been acting for years now and she is a very seasoned actor.
YEM: Colin in Black and White is about a pretty serious subject, what is it like working on something that has such a realistic script?
Peyton: It was pretty cool to work on a script about a black man who stood up for what he felt was right. Everyone was extremely nice and we definitely bonded.

Peyton: I had a chance to meet him once during our virtual table read. My parents explained to me what he did and why his project was being made.
YEM: In That Girl Lay Lay your character is always trying to pitch new businesses, and talk about new ideas for money, have you taken that home with you? Do you have any ideas for a business?
