Neverbored. (Q&A).

Entertainment Weekly declared Gregory Smith, 19, one of the "breakout stars" of 2002 for his role as angstridden teen Ephram Brown on the hit WB series Everwood. Upfront spoke to Smith about all the attention he's getting as an up-and-coming actor.

What has been the biggest change since Everwood premiered?

My frequent-flier account. I'm on a plane pretty much every week. I usually come to Los Angeles every other weekend to see friends. [The WB] puts me up in a nice hotel and I invite my friends over. Total party! Trashing rooms!

Did your friends give you a hard time when made a life-size poster of you available online?

None of my friends wanted to waste the ink it would take to print out 20 sheets. That's a lot of tape! I begged the people who run the site to take it down, but they wouldn't.

Is it surreal to you that people want to know all about your life now that you're a television star?

Nah. I'm pretty happy with the way things are going. It's good times ... I like doing interviews until they ask, "How does it feel to be a teen heartthrob?" After that, the interview is pretty much over. Anytime I hear that question, I just want to, like, die.
