22-year-old Noah Galvin has become a breakout star on ABC’s hit coming-of-age sitcom “The Real O’Neals” and, funny enough, he actually hangs out a lot with his TV mom Martha Plimpton off-set, too -- even taking on some chores that a real-life son might do!

“The show moved production to LA for season two, and she’s been putting together her house, so I’ve been putting together her IKEA furniture for the past few weeks,” he says.

The cast gets along well, but their big personalities can be a handful, Noah shares: “Our Assistant Director says it’s like wrangling a bunch of kittens with ADD.”

Both he and his character on the show Kenny are gay, and says, “There weren’t huge discrepancies in our coming out [experiences], both of them were relatively easy. He didn’t have a huge, crazy pushback from anybody and neither did I. I came out to my very liberal New York family on the Upper West Side, so it wasn’t really a thing.”

Noah also shared that he has a special connection to Rachael from 8th grade homeschooling days, “I’d sit at home and watch the Food Network, every single day. Miss Rachael Ray taught me how to cook,” he says.
