Hayden Byerly Chats “The Fosters” with CelebSecrets4U – Read the Interview!

HAYDEN BYERLYWe are two weeks away from the season two premiere of ABC Family’s The Fosters!

In the season two premiere episode titled Things Unknown, its a big day for Callie as her future with the Fosters hinges on the revelation that Donald is not her birth father. What happens next could threaten to separate Callie and Jude once again. Brandon struggles to recover and come to terms with his guilt over sleeping with Dani, and big questions still remain about what Mike was up to the night Ana disappeared.

Meanwhile, Jesus and Emmas relationship impacts Emmas standing with her teammates, which causes tension between them. Mariana has made a big change, much to Stefs dismay.

To gear up for the special day, actor Hayden Byerly, who plays Jude on the show, chatted with press to drop hints about where we can see his character this season and more.Check out what Hayden had to say in the exclusive Q&A below.

On working on The Fosters’ set: “The Fosters set is probably one of my favorite sets Ive been on. Ive worked on just a few, but its by far my favorite. The people that we work with are fantastic. All the actors and actresses are very professional and theyre very experienced and very fun to work with. The crew, they work very hard and theyre great at what they do. Its a great crew. Its a great experience. Its a wonderful set.”

How he gets into character:”Jude is a separate person. Jude is me but Im Jude, but Im not Jude if that makes sense. Getting into character for Jude is basically creating another person, thinking about every little detail. Who they are, why they do what they do, why their hair is brown, all of that. You think about your character and who he is. Its an interesting process but I guess everyone has a different way of getting into character.”

How he relates to Jude in real life: “I definitely think that hes very sensitive. I feel like I am kind of sensitive in a way. I feel like a sensitive quality is good to have and I feel like I am very sensitive as well as Jude. Jude is also very aware of his surroundings and I feel like I try to make sure that Im aware of my surroundings and know whats happening around me.”

On Jude’s adoption: “Jude definitely feels like hes permanently there, like hes going to stay there forever now that the adoption is finalized. Before, he was having some issues with if they were going to keep him or not and he really wanted to stay there, but now that the adoption is finalized Jude is very comfortable. He feels safe.”

How Jude’s adoption will affect his relationship with Callie: ”Thats definitely an issue that Jude faces. He feels as though, you know, especially finding out that they dont have the same dad that it gets a little weird for Jude and it gets hard for him to kind of handle. We definitely see that in the Season 2; we watch as he struggles to take that in. But he still feels very close to his sister, but youll have to watch. Youll have to see to find out!”

The Fosters returns to ABC Family on Monday, June 16th @ 9PM ET/PT.
