Adi Dardik was our PA on Can’t Get Arrested. I asked her five questions. She gave me five answers. Here they are:
1 - How did you get involved with Can’t Get Arrested? What was your role on the show?
I was randomly invited to a dinner on a Wednesday. I had never met the hosts of the house. I was in the middle of my dinner, when this guy who lives in the host’s garage house, passed by to say hello and introduced us to his brother, Michael, who came from Miami to produce a web series. I told him I was from Miami and we talked for about 5 minutes. In those 5 minutes we realized that we had a friend in common and I that I was producer too (well, I told him that). I told him I would love to help out with the series (which i never heard it was with Dave, Jody, Dennis and Candace). I gave him my e-mail and that was it. Then Friday he wrote me an e-mail asking me if I could go Monday. I was the Production Assistant, but thanks to my talent, charms, beauty and my humbly personality I got promoted to an acting role the second day.
2 - What is your favorite memory from being on set?
3 - Dennis Haskins on Can’t Get Arrested or Dennis Haskins on Saved by the Bell. Which do you like more? Why?
I laughed… a lot… Everyday was so much fun. We were a great team and it’s been a pleasure to work with so many talented people. I do have a problem now… every time I want to say “exactly” I have to tilt my face up and I say exaaaaaactly, just as Eric says it. I also had a lot of fun playing with my assistant, Ranger, Dave’s dog. He laughed at all my jokes.
On Saved by the bell, Dennis’s character was more caring, and had to deal with all of Zach Morris’s pranks… on Can’t Get Arrested, he wants the attention, but it shows a comedic side, and this character is definitely funnier!!! I think Dennis Haskins is just a great actor and any role he takes he is great on it.
4 - How many languages have you watched Full House in? Rank them in order from funniest to least funny.
I’ve only watched it in two languages. I never got to see the show in Hebrew, because I left Israel as a toddler. I grew up watching the show in Spanish, then when I moved to the States 11 years ago, started watching all of the re-runs in English. At first it was funny to hear them with a different voice, but then, not only I got used to it but I realized I like their real voices much better (not to offend the voice over actors). The show is definitely better in English, because it was written that way. There are things that are not translatable to any other language.
5 - You celebrated Thanksgiving at Dave Coulier’s house. What was that like? Did you ever think that as a child, when you were watching Dave in [insert language], that you would be celebrating holidays with him in 2011?
I am new in LA, and was not able to go to South Florida to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Dave and Melissa were kind enough to invite me to celebrate with them, their family and friends. I had a lot of fun, I ate delicious food and we played pictionary… Go team boobs! Joey was one of my favorite characters on the show, and now that I know Dave, I can tell, just as his character he is a great person; caring and funny. I would have never thought in a million years I was going to celebrate any holidays with him, although I did secretly wish I could have been in Hawaii and Disney with the Full House family while watching the show.
