Imagine a work environment of nothing but pretty girls… and Tim Allen. That’s what Christoph Sanders is dealing with on Last Man Standing, now in its third season on ABC. OKMagazine.com chatted with Christoph to hear about his character, life on set, and more. Tune in to Last Man Standing at 8pm on Fridays on ABC.
OK!: To go back to basics, tell us about your character on the show.
Christoph Sanders: I play Kyle Anderson. He is an employee at Outdoor Man. The first season, I dated Tim’s eldest daughter, and second season I dated his middle daughter. That relationship is still going strong. He’s a pretty laid-back guy, a little naive. He’s eager, excited to learn.
OK!: Are you like him at all?
CS: Parts. I like to think I’m not as naive! But sometimes. Hopefully, all the good parts. He’s a sweet guy, caring.
OK!: What are your hopes for your character?
CS: I don’t know, it’s been really nice—since season one, we’ve shot about 42 episodes so far. They’ve been really great in writing me in different aspects, not just at Outdoor Man but in my home life. So I’d like to see more of that.
OK!: What is it like with the girls on set? Do all the guys bond because of it?
CS: Not really. There’s not a whole lot of dividing. It’s actually really nice, because on the other shows I’ve worked on, I’ve always been the youngest on the show. It’s nice to have people that are the same age bracket, and we can go have a beer after work.
OK!: What was your first ever clebeirty encounter, whether at work or otherwise?
CS: Will Ferrell. I worked, for a day, on Talladega Nights. My laughter is in the background. It was the first thing I’d ever done, film-wise, and I went in for the day. Everything got cut. I played a pizza delivery boy, and he had to work with us, and he told us to berate him with profanity. Of course it got cut!
OK!: What’s your favorite TV show right now?
CS: I watch a lot of HBO. Right now, Game of Thrones is my favorite show.
OK!: Who was your celebrity crush when you were a teenager?
CS: Cameron Diaz. I grew up watching The Mask, at least once a week, so she was ingrained in my brain. You’re like, Wow, you’re gorgeous, and you can talk!
