HEAD OF THE CLASS – Interview with Dior Goodjohn

This November 4th school is back in session as HBO MAX premiere’s HEAD OF THE CLASS.  The revamped take on the 80’s classic is from the minds of Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen with the backing of Bill Lawrence, Jeff Ingold and all the might of HBO Max.  I had the wonderful pleasure to chat with one of the young stars of the show.  Meet DIOR GOODJOHN who plays Robyn Rook on the new series.

This series revolves around a group of overachieving high school students who meet their greatest challenge — a teacher, Alicia Adams (Isabella Gomez ), who wants them to focus less on grades and more on experiencing life.

Teenager Dior Goodjohn has been modeling and acting in since she was a wee babe (8th months old to be exact!), but the HBO Max show is her first series.  She plays Robyn Rook who is the sarcastic and quick-witted gamer who is one of the leaders of the debate class that is showcased in the show.  Dior was awesome enough to chat with me about the role, getting to work with comedic icons like Bill Lawrence, and so much more.

Interview with Actor/Singer Dior Goodjohn.

In this first segment we talk about the HBO Max auditioning process, Bill Lawrence experience, and her love of Viola Davis.

* I happened to be driving when the call started so sorry for the loud traffic sounds in the first minute.  Also the last 10 seconds had a slight drop call issue so please enjoy the rest of the full interview here –

Dior was awesome enough to talk about her family, her aspirations and so much more!

Don’t miss out on the wonderful new series HEAD OF THE CLASS with Dior Goodjohn as Robyn Rook.

The series premieres on November 4th.
