I recently had the opportunity to interview 11 year old Chloe Coleman, the co-star of Amazon Prime’s My Spy. Chloe shared it all, from working with Dave Bautista, what she hopes people take away from the film, and so much more!
My Spy: Chloe Coleman Interview
I was so excited to have the opportunity to participate in a virtual round table interview with Chloe Coleman. You might have seen her in HBO’s Big Little Lies, Disney Plus’ Timmy Failure, and she’ll be in James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar 2. My 10 year old son was able to join me in this interview, and it was so fun to share this experience with him.
I’ve already seen My Spy, and I’m going to jump right in and tell you that you won’t want to miss this one. It’s fun, action packed, and full of heart. Read my full spoiler free movie review here.
Co-starring in a “spy movie” was practically a dream come true for Chloe. As someone who has grown up loving spy movies, she was excited for this role. While she loves the fancy spy gadgets, if she could choose one spy technique to learn in real life, she would pick something her character, Sophie, didn’t learn in the movie. Sophie was a master at manipulation! “The way that she blackmails JJ, is so smart. She gets her way all the time with him because she has information that she can just expose. If I was able to do that, that would be pretty cool.”
My Spy is about relationships
Chloe wants people to know that My Spy is so much more than just a spy movie. It’s about relationships and the connection and friendship she has with JJ, played by Dave Bautista. She told us that their chemistry together is so good because Sophie and JJ are so opposite. They definitely compliment each other well!
Chloe Coleman on Working with Dave Bautista
Want to know what it was like to work side-by-side with Dave Bautista? Chloe refers to him as “a friend for life.” She also joked that he doesn’t always remember his lines…which made us all laugh! Her favorite scene to shoot in My Spy was an emotional scene she shared with Dave. She said the scene felt so real to her because of the relationship she built with him in real life.
Funny Moments On Set
We all know funny moments are bound to happen on set. Chloe set up a “swear jar” on set and apparently Peter Segal had to donate to it rather frequently. She said he never learned from it and would get upset! Chloe donated the money accumulated from the swear jar to the Amazon Rainforest.
About My Spy:
My Spy follows JJ a hardened CIA operative (Dave Bautista) who has been demoted and finds himself at the mercy of a precocious 9-year-old girl, named Sophie (Chloe Coleman) where he has been sent undercover begrudgingly to surveil her family. When Sophie discovers hidden cameras in her apartment, she uses her tech savviness to locate where the surveillance operation is set. In exchange for not blowing JJ’s cover Sophie convinces him to spend time with her and teach her to be a spy. Despite his reluctance JJ finds he is no match for Sophie’s disarming charm and wit.
