Recap written by Mandi Ortiz
Jack Griffo made an appearance at Seacrest Studios at Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and was greetd by the many smilling and excited patients waiting for him. The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon star sat down at the microphone, and shared some of his experiences as an actor as well as his love for playing the guitar and singing. His YouTube channel, home to 19,269 subscribers, displays his musical side, and he talked about being very thankful to his fans for their praise and support.
His fans have something to be excited about: a new Nickelodeon series staring Jack himself: "The Thundermans." Portraying a teen villain, twinned with an aspiring superhero, Jack told us about his new adventure playing the “bad guy”.
Eager to meet and greet fans, Jack happily signed autographs and posed for photos. Visiting a few patients in their rooms, Jack made one birthday girl, Hannah, especially happy. Explaining that he too had a scare in the hospital, as a fourteen-year-old boy suffering from appendicitis, Griffo was able to connect with the patients. Their effect on him as a young actor was apparent: “I definitely want to come back and visit again…”
Thank you Jack for making it a special day at CHOC.
