Together, armed with exciting new gadgets and gear, the PAW Patrol fights to save the citizens of Adventure City!”

ComingSoon Editor-in-Chief Tyler Treese spoke with Paw Patrol: The Movie star Iain Armitage about voicing Chase, how he got into playing a dog, his love of theater, and more.

Tyler Treese: What was most exciting about playing the role of Chase?

Iain Armitage: That’s a great question. I think all of it. I just had so much fun doing this movie. It was also so cool because when you’re recording a voiceover thing like this, you could come to work in your pajamas and they wouldn’t care at all. Also this particular movie was really fun because since it is a movie about dogs, they had a whole thing at the end where they just had me sit there for like five or 10 minutes just barking. So I was just sitting there in like a tiny little recording booth going, “Woof. Woof! Woof?” And I sounded absolutely insane.

How was finding your inner dog for this film? Like you said, you’re woofing, barking, panting, making all kinds of dog noises. It has to be quite the experience.

It was crazy, yeah. It was fun and it was awesome and kinda weird at some points because I was just sitting there sounding absolutely insane. I joked with another reporter about starting eating my meals off the floor, because she asked me how I prepared for the role. And I said, “Well, I think preparing for character is very important. So for this one, I started eating off the floor and I switched to a diet of only dog food.”

Young Sheldon’s coming back. You’ve been playing this role for a couple years now. How exciting is it that know this show isn’t just a gimmick and it has its own fan base? How rewarding is it to see it continuing on for so many seasons?

It is so awesome. And I’m so glad that people enjoy it. And like you said, it’s cool because I think at first it was a lot of Big Bang Theory fans who started watching it because it was sort of a continuation of Big Bang, but now I think we’re sort of getting our own Young Sheldon fan group, which I love. I’m so glad that people enjoy it. And I love being in things that make people smile.

Speaking of smiles, you played like young Shaggy in Scoob. How was it like voicing this character? You’re playing the characters that you probably grew up watching.

Like zoinks! It was awesome. It’s funny because when I was doing it, it was such a long time ago. Like it came out during early COVID and I had actually been doing it way before that. So animated stuff actually takes a way longer time than you’d think. Like with Paw Patrol, I think I started doing Paw Patrol like way before COVID and I had started researching it way before COVID. It’s funny because when you watch it on the screen, it looks so effortless and easy, but actually it can take years.

Speaking of Paw Patrol, the series was so successful before the film. Were you very familiar with the series before you got this role or did you kind of look it up afterward?

I am. You can’t be a kid without knowing at least a little bit about Paw Patrol. I didn’t watch a whole lot of TV when I was little, I did watch some Scooby-Doo like you were saying. And I think I must have watched Paw Patrol at some point. But I have since watched little clips of it and I must say it’s adorable and very funny. So I’m so glad to be part of this movie.

You’ve worked with so many great actors. What was the best advice you’ve received over your career so far?

It’s funny you should ask that because recently I’ve been doing a whole thing where I’ve been asking just a bunch of different people what they wish they had known at my age and for their best advice. And I have about 11 pages of advice that I love and is just fantastic. I’ve received so much awesome advice.

Showing up on time and knowing your lines is such a big thing. You really know that it’s a big thing because I think almost all actors, when you ask them their advice will say some form of that because it is big. Staying humble and staying grounded and always showing up early and knowing your lines is a very big deal.
