Exclusive: Aedin Mincks Dishes on ‘Ted’ and “A.N.T. Farm”


You may know Aedin Mincks best for his role as Angus on “A.N.T. Farm,” but starting today, you can catch him in the hilarious movie Ted.

We had the chance to chat with Aedin about what it was like being part of an all-star cast and of course, what’s next on “A.N.T. Farm.” Check out what he had to say!

TED is out today and the movie is hilarious. What was it like being a part of that movie? It was amazing. I got to work with some of my favorite actors: Seth Macfarlane, Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Giovanni Ribisi. It was unreal! I loved everything about it. Boston was amazing- I can’t wait to go back- I had so much fun there.

You and Giovanni Ribisi have some great scenes. What was he like to work with? Well, he is the nicest guy- super nice to everyone- the crew, the drivers, everyone, and he would talk to me and as soon as we knew we were ready to shoot a scene, it was interesting watching him prepare for the scene and become this completely different character. I learned a lot from him.

If you could wish for any one of your old toys to come to life to be your bff, what toy would it be? I have a stuffed rabbit my grandma gave me-I named it, “Mr.Chubbs”

“ANT Farm” season 2 just recently started. What can fans look forward to with the upcoming episodes? Well, … Lots of trouble, some funny costumes, and new guest stars!

Do you have a favorite episode that you’ve filmed of the show? “Body of evidAnts” That one was a lot fun.

How did you get started in acting? My older brother wanted to be an actor, and when he was interviewing with agents, all of the agents were interested in me and my parents kept telling them No this was not for me! Eventually, I proved them wrong!

Who would be your dream co-star or your dream project? JOHNNY DEPP- I would want to do anything with swords or the middle ages. A big action film!

Any other upcoming projects? I am going to Vancouver to work on an episode of The Haunting Hour.

What advice do you have for young aspiring actors? #1 Don’t worry about competition and don’t compare yourself with other people. Be yourself. #2 HAVE FUN!
