Sadie Calvano: Everyone Can Relate To Teen Angst

Posted: Updated:

At age 16, Sadie Calvano, who co-stars with Allison Janney and Anna Faris on the CBS sitcom "Mom." is already an acting veteran.  And it's a career she hopes to continue pursuing.

"This is an amazing business but it's definitely unreliable," Sadie told the Toronto Sun. "I got really lucky with Mom. That doesn't always happen."

"I guess my next big goal would be doing a feature film. But especially being a student, I think it's important to stay focused on a backup plan and maintain good grades and apply to colleges."

It sure sounds as if Sadie had a much more grounded upbringing that her character on Mom.  "I would hope so," Sadie says. "My mom would be very concerned otherwise."

Sadie joins Steve Edwards and Araksya Karapeteyan on Good Day L.A.

Fun Facts About Mom:(Source: Wikipedia)

1) is an American situation comedy that premiered on September 23, 2013, on CBS. The series stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney and was created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, and Gemma Baker.

2) The series follows Christy (Anna Faris), a single mother who—after dealing with her battle with alcoholism and drug addiction—decides to restart her life in California's Sonoma County Wine Country working as a waitress and attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Her mother Bonnie (Allison Janney) is also a recovering drug and alcohol addict, and her 16-year-old daughter Violet (Sadie Calvano), who was born when Christy was 16, has become pregnant by her boyfriend Luke. Christy also has younger son Roscoe by her ex-husband Baxter, a deadbeat drug-dealer. (Violet has a different father.)

3) Christy dates Gabriel, her boss at the restaurant; Gabriel's father-in-law owns the restaurant but Gabriel is unhappy in his marriage and wants to leave his wife although he feels this is impossible. The restaurant's chef, Rudy, is overcritical and too serious about his job.
