[Laughs] I also like SpongeBob SquarePants and All That – I got to meet a lot of the cast and they are all just super-cool. The person I love watching television with is… My mum! She is so funny. She always finds a way to make it fun. Last night, we were watching Snowfall (watch seasons 1-3 On Demand) and it was a very intense moment and she just screams! I jumped and fell out of the bed.
