Abbott Elementary’s Tyler James Williams Discusses His ‘Unique’ Perspective When It Comes To Working With The Show’s Child Actors


Not too many Hollywood child stars can say they have transitioned to a successful adult career like Abbott Elementary’s Tyler James Williams. Before his breakthrough role in the cult classic Everybody Hates Chris, Williams popped up as a young child on a variety of shows, including Saturday Night Live and Sesame Street. Now, his career has come full circle as he’s playing first-grade teacher Gregory Eddie, where his character is shaping and molding young minds on the ABC sitcom. Williams’ experiences allowed him to bring his unique perspective to working with the show’s child actors.

Williams’ Abbott Elementary cast recalled the special bond he has formed with the young actors since the first season. The special bond is due to the Emmy nominee’s understanding and empathy toward a child actor’s experience. The Walking Dead alum spoke with Teen Vogue about advocating for the show’s student actors to learn about the craft.
