Thanks to IHJ for the behind the scenes photo from If There Is...
At the weekend, Jake was one of 60,000 people (although one of the hairiest) attending the Global Citizens Festival in Central Park, a huge charity event fighting poverty, which included bands such as the Foo Fighters. American news reader Katie Couric posted a photo of herself with a very buttoned up Jake at the Festival on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Jake and Maggie's dad Stephen has been discussing with Crave Online his own project Grassroots as well as reflecting on his pride in his childrens' work.
Was there any doubt they would go into the business? 'Oh, I never thought for a second they would. It was never anything I thought of. We just didn’t think about that. They were kids. They were doing whatever they were doing. I didn’t understand that they were absorbing everything that was going on and it’s amazing to see how much they took in, but there was never any idea that they should do anything but what they wanted to do. Never for a moment. There wasn’t really even time to consider, “Well, are you going to become a doctor?” because they were so young when they started acting and then it just took off.'
Have you seen End of Watch yet? 'Oh yeah, I saw it. I’m actually in New York right now. I just saw Jake’s play as well. Yeah, I sawEnd of Watch. It’s terrific and he’s great in this play. I don't know how it happened but my kids are very talented.'
I'm delighted to include here another video from the Roundabout Theatre with the cast of If There Is, including Jake. Thanks to BBMISwear for the headsup!
