Being an actor since i was her age, i was a little nervous about her first onset experience but everyone on set of Abbott made this experience every bit of amazing and i can’t thank everyone enough,” he wrote on his personal social media account.

Several X, formerly Twitter, users were excited to see a familiar Internet personality land a major network TV credit. Other social media users praised Brunson for being in tune with what’s going on in the social media landscape and casting creative talent like our Internet niece, JaBria.
