Today’s Guest: Tania Gunadi, actress, “Aaron Stone”
As a co-star of the Disney XD channel’s “Aaron Stone” series, Tania Gunadi has a dual life—she’s the girl next door to Charlie Landers, a.k.a. Aaron Stone, played by Kelly Blatz, and she is also a player in the online game that drives the show’s plot.
TANIA GUNADI podcast excerpt: “Working on Star Trek with J.J. Abrams was so amazing. My alien makeup took five hours in the morning to put on; we did 11 days of fitting to make it work. My ears would move as I walked and I had a really long tail. J.J. would ask every couple of minutes, ‘Are you okay? Can you breathe?’… Chris Pine is so cute. After our scene we walked outside. He said, ‘Are you okay? Do you need a jacket?’ And I said, ‘No, I just need a hug.'”
And while this might be child’s play to some—Tania is older than she may look. Despite playing a teen on the show, this native of Bandung, Indonesia is actually 26!
Tania might be a familiar face to fans of everything from Even Stevens to Boston Public; she also had a role on an episode of one of my favorite comedies, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” on FX.
