Farm,” “Sing Your Face Off”), Sean Giambrone (“The Goldbergs”), Mason Cook (“The Lone Ranger,” “Legends”), Luke Benward (“Cloud 9,” “Ravenswood”), Nolan Gould (“Modern Family”), Joey King (“OZ the Great and Powerful,” “Fargo”), Freya Tingley (“Hemlock Grove,” “Once Upon a Time”) and acclaimed actress Margot Kidder (“Superman”).
